Arrests at Border Hit the Highest Rate in 20 Years…

Arrests at the border between the United States and Mexico have actually reached the highest rate in twenty years. Over one million illegal immigrants have been jailed by United States Customs and Border Security (CBP) in the last 6 months alone.

Info released by CBP on April 18th exposed that there were 209,906 arrests along the southern border in just March and 803,607 more since October.

According to the CBP, a great deal of expulsions during the pandemic has actually added to a higher-than-usual variety of migrants making numerous border crossing efforts, “which means that total encounters somewhat overstate the number of unique individuals arriving at the border.”

Still, the huge uptick in arrests indicates that the United States is on speed to break the previous record overall of around 1.9 million in 2021.

Approximately 76 percent of land border encounters were single grownups. Encounters with unaccompanied kids increased 18 percent, with 14,167 encounters in March compared to 11,984 in February.

“About 51 per cent of those people were expelled under Title 42, a controversial pandemic rule which allows border agents to turn back migrants as a danger to public health, whether they are caught crossing illegally or arrive seeking asylum at a checkpoint,” the Independent reports. “During the pandemic, both US president Joe Biden and his predecessor Donald Trump used Title 42 to expel migrants en masse. Mr Biden’s administration is now preparing to lift it as of 23 May.”

CBP is getting ready for another rise in encounters with illegal immigrants as quickly as the guideline is raised.

“CBP continues to enforce the CDC’s Title 42 Public Health Order. Half of migrants encountered in March were processed for expulsion under Title 42, and those who were not processed under Title 42 continue to be processed for removal under Title 8, the same authorities CBP has used throughout our history,” CBP Commissioner Chris Magnus said in a statement.

Magnus continued, “while we may likely see an increase in encounters after the CDC’s Title 42 Public Health Order is terminated on May 23rd, CBP continues to execute this Administration’s comprehensive strategy to safely, orderly, and humanely manage our borders. CBP is surging personnel and resources to the border, increasing processing capacity, securing more ground and air transportation, and increasing medical supplies, food, water, and other resources to ensure a humane environment for those being processed.”
