Border Patrol Chiefs Say ‘Unprecedented’ Number Of Illegal Immigrants Entering U.S.

via Sky News

Border Patrol chiefs testified to lawmakers about the historic surge in illegal immigrants being released into the U.S., with encounters reaching record highs.

They emphasized the unprecedented scale of the crisis, attributing it to the policies of the Biden administration.

The chiefs reported that the number of people crossing the border exceeds anything seen before, with at least 1.4 million illegal immigrants released into the U.S. in Fiscal Year 2023. (Trending: Biden Shamefully Removes God From National Address)

“We spoke with some of the most senior and experienced leaders in the U.S. Border Patrol and they clearly recognize the unprecedented scope of this crisis. Their stunning testimony further informs the Committee’s oversight work and emphasizes why we must hold Secretary Mayorkas and President Biden accountable for intentionally facilitating the worst border crisis in our history,” Rep. Mark Green (R-TN) stated.

“The volume that we’re seeing recently, in my opinion, in my career when I’ve seen is what I would consider unprecedented,” said deputy chief Border Patrol agent Dustin Caudle.

“And then, thinking it couldn’t go higher, it then went to 250,000 [2022] last year, and that did not include the 55,000 that we took from Yuma to help them out and the 170,000 gotaways recorded last year in that as well,” said chief John Modlin.

“And this year we’re on pace to probably hit 300,000. So if that’s the case, then we’ll be five times what we did just in 2020.”

Lawmakers continue to call for action to secure the border, with some considering impeaching Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.
