CBP reveals new statistics. Illegal immigrant figures reach record annual high.

Where: United States

The Facts

US Border Patrol agents apprehended approximately 1,666,167 illegal immigrants on the US border in the fiscal year 2021.

The figures are the highest annual numbers ever recorded since 1960, when the US government began tracking such entries.

Senator Tom Cotton tweeted, “As tens of thousands of illegal immigrants come across the border, Joe Biden promises them citizenship. He’s making this crisis much worse.”

September presented a new challenge to the Biden administration when Haitian immigrants camped under an international bridge at Del Rio, TX.

Mike Pompeo tweeted, “What we are seeing at the southern border is a crisis. If the Biden Administration would’ve kept the policies we had in place, this would have never happened.”
