April was another record breaking month for illegal border crossings.
Earlier this month, a tweet posted by reporter Nick Miroff of the Washington Post, mentioned that in April there were 234K illegal border encounters.
Now we have official confirmation as the numbers were released in a report from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency on 5/16/22.
Some salient numbers for Californians.
Of the 234,088 border counters, 37,636 of those took place in the San Diego Sector.
Of those encounters, 10,791 were removed under Title 42, which is set to expire later this month.
“Also in April, 117,989 migrants were released into the United States and 113,248 were removed. Of that, 98,908 were expelled via Title 42.”
As we mentioned in a recent blog, this exceeds the March 2022 number of 221K illegal border encounters, which broke a 22 year high.
We said it once and we’ll say it again, these are the numbers before the Trump era border enforcement policy Title 42 is scheduled to be lifted later this month on 5/23/22.
Given the increase from March to April, it looks like predictions of a historical surge at the border this spring into summer are becoming reality.
This comes on the heels of an analysis by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) which indicated the population of illegal immigrants has increased by one million since Biden took office.
No wonder immigration is a top concern for many Americans when they are polled on the topic.
As things go from bad to worse, Californians, border state residents, and all Americans are about to deal with a border disaster that was entirely preventable.
