A narrow Republican majority in the House has attracted a growing number of Democrats to oppose a Biden administration initiative to house illegal migrants on federal lands.

Six Democrats joined with Republicans to pass a legislation to prevent President Joe Biden from using federal lands to house illegal aliens, and the House passed Rep. Nicole Malliotakis’s legislation to prevent Biden from using federal lands to house illegal aliens.

“There were 269,735 migrant encounters in September, of which 218,763 were encountered entering illegally by Border Patrol agents. That brings the yearly total for migrants at the southern border for FY 23 to 2.48 million, higher than the 2.38 million in FY 22 and 1.73 million in FY 21. There were just 458,088 encounters in FY 2020,” the report noted. (Trending: Bombshell Email Uncovered Between Joe Biden And Hunter)

“Of those who entered, 43,000 individuals were processed in through ports of entry via the controversial CBP One app, which allows migrants to schedule an appointment to be paroled into the U.S.,” it added.

“Meanwhile, there were 18 encounters of people on the terror watch list between ports of entry at the southern border, taking the total for FY 23 up to 169 — a new record and more than the last six fiscal years combined.”

The number of migrants flooding illegally into the U.S. has set records month after month under Biden, and Acting CBP Commissioner Troy Miller ordered a surge of personnel and resources to the border in response to high rates of encounters.

“We are continually engaging with domestic and foreign partners to address historic hemispheric migration, including large migrant groups traveling on freight trains, and to enforce consequences, including by preparing for direct repatriations to Venezuela,” said Miller.

“CBP will continue to remain vigilant, making operational adjustments as necessary and enforcing consequences under U.S. immigration law.”

“The supplemental funding request announced yesterday would provide critically needed additional resources, including additional CBP agents and officers to support our essential missions: from border and migration management, to countering fentanyl and keeping dangerous drugs out of our communities,” he added.
