(READ) Worst ever border encounter numbers for FY23, according to US Customs & Border Protection data

The House Committee on Homeland Security released its latest “Startling Stats” factsheet on Oct. 26 outlining U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) September and Fiscal Year (FY) 2023 border encounter data. 

In the final month of FY2023, CBP recorded 269,735 encounters at the Southwest border, marking another unprecedented milestone under Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and President Joe Biden’s open-borders policies. 

This monthly number also represents an 86% increase from June 2023, when the Biden administration celebrated a short-lived drop in illegal crossings following the end of Title 42. 

The annual numbers proved just as catastrophic.

In FY23, CBP recorded more than 2.4 million encounters at the Southwest border and more than 3.2 million encounters nationwide. 

Just this fiscal year, 169 individuals on the terrorist watchlist were apprehended attempting to enter the country illegally, and at least 1.7 million known gotaways have evaded apprehension since FY2021. 

Key Facts from report below:

  • Last month, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reported a 40% increase compared to September 2021 and 18% compared to September 2022.

    1. Sam,

      -from my college anthropology
      course, which I had ACED, and
      which course was full of PC
      LIBERTARIAN inclusion and
      equity – e.g., “All cultures are
      equal in importance and value –
      CRAP, as if Western White
      Christian societies have not
      been superior to. the savagery
      in, say, West Africa or Haiti :

      “ A ‘nation’’ is defined as a people of common ancestry. “

      Now, Sam, discover how it – the
      destruction of America – ( partly )
      began in 1965 :

      Senator Edward M. Kennedy (D-MA)
      Commenting on the passage of his
      (( his Commie Handlers’ )) Immigration
      Act of 1965–His (broken) P R O M I S E :

      “Out of deference to the critics, I want to comment on … what the bill
      will not do. First, our cities will not be flooded with a million immigrants
      annually. Under the proposed bill, the present level of immigration
      remains substantially the same … Secondly,
      . . . Contrary to the charges in some quarters, S.500 will
      from any one country or area, or the most populated and economically deprived nations of Africa and Asia. In the final analysis, the ethnic pattern of immigration under the proposed measure is not expected to change as sharply as the critics seem to think.Thirdly, the bill will not permit the entry
      illiterates, or those with contagious disease or serious mental illness. As I
      noted a moment ago, no immigrant visa will be issued to a person who is
      likely to become a public charge … the charges I have mentioned are
      highly emotional, irrational, and with little foundation in fact. They are out
      of line with the obligations of responsible citizenship. They breed hate of
      our heritage.” (Senate Part 1, Book 1, pp. 1-3)


  1. Why is this happening? I’ve heard right wing pundits scream the democrats are allowing this to happen to import voters. I doubt that. I work with latino immigrants. Most of them love Trump. Rather,
    I think there’s an organized effort by our government and world economic powers to undermine Western culture. The ideas regarding individual, Natural rights must be destroyed in order to reestablish arbitrary mechanisms of power. Thats the future. Get ready, because this is going to happen.

    1. Maybe the answer you seek is found in your own narrative.
      “The Latinos you Work with”.
      Not every Illegal Alien is a Latino, I don’t know how many work or how many come here to work.
      There may be a vast difference between that forced their way in during the Biden years. These people may have been kind of preselected to invade America, maybe on America haters were recruited.

    2. Those you work with are most likely legal immigrants. None of those crossing the border now are legal in any sense of the word.
      Second and 3rd generation immigrants tend to be conservative and many are Trump supporters.
      That the current administration opened the gates and are paying welfare to those coming may end up being completely dependent on the fedral government and will vote democrat if permitted to vote.

  2. Something that I never hear asked of all these illegals, is how did they manage to travel such a great distance to get here, with no job, food or money? WHO buys them their plane tickets? WHO tells them to come here? What are they promised for coming here?

    1. Excellent question as reports are some of these people pay upwards of $20K to get here.
      As I understand it, some ‘borrow’ from the drug cartels, becoming mules, or promise to pay exhorbitant rates with family members who remain in the country of origin threatened if the immigrant does not pay. IMO that makes Myorkas and Biden human traffickers.
