Illegal Immigration Numbers Will Keep Rising
The numbers are staggering! U.S. Customs and Border Protection just released illegal immigrant apprehension numbers for the 2019 fiscal year thus far. According to newly released data, March’s number is the highest in a decade.
Last month, border patrol encountered a total of 103,492 migrants attempting to cross the border.
In March, 92,607 people were apprehended between ports of entry on the Southwest Border, compared with 66,884 in the month of February and 47,984 in January. In FY18, a total of 396,579 individuals were apprehended between ports of entry on our Southwest Border.
In March, 10,885 people presenting themselves at ports of entry on the Southwest Border were deemed inadmissible, compared with 9,651 in the month of February and 10,309 in January. In FY18, 124,511 people presenting themselves at ports of entry on the Southwest Border were deemed inadmissible.
While illegal immigrants are pouring over the border, nearly two million illegal immigrants with deportation orders or pending deportation orders remain in the states.
Immediate action must be taken to stop this crisis that is spiraling out of control. Democrats continue to spin their talking points about our border crisis being a manufactured crisis. If the numbers will not convince them, what will?
