February border crossings shatter historical records

by ian


The nation’s border crisis continues to break records as last month saw the highest February numbers ever recorded.

The latest CBP data shows that there were over 256,000 illegal border crossings last month alone. That is about a 20% increase from last February, but only a fraction of the 11.4 million illegal immigrants who have entered the US since fiscal year 2021.

For context, that number is more than the population of 43 US states, all American cities, and roughly 150 countries across the world.

It also includes roughly 2 million ‘gotaways,’ that is immigrants that evade law enforcement. Border Patrol Chief Jason Owens says it’s those numbers that trouble officers the most.
