Soaring Border Crossings: Rising migrant numbers strain border facilities and raise questions about Biden’s immigration policies.
Soaring Border Crossings
- Border facilities are overwhelmed by the influx of migrants.
- Between Friday to Monday, there was an average of 9,000 daily immigrants entering through the southern border.
- On Monday, this figure was over 9,700.
- The highest daily recorded crossings were slightly above 10,000 prior to Title 42’s repeal.
- Many believe President Biden’s lax policies have spurred the immigration surge.
Recent Immigration Trends
- The Biden administration had reported a 70% decrease in illegal entries post the repeal of Title 42. This Trump-era order blocked asylum seekers due to COVID concerns.
- However, the numbers have increased again, attributed to expanded legal entry pathways and the weather becoming conducive for migration.
- Notably, a freight train carrying large numbers of immigrants was seen in Mexico, heading to the U.S.
Happening Now: And just like clockwork, thousands more illegals spotted jumping the next train north to the US border. This is the second train in two days. Encounters with illegals are now at a record high 9k per day.

- Independent journalist Michael Yon highlighted the shortened routes but emphasized the persisting dangers.
