U.S. Customs and Border Protection now says that they have had more than 2 million encounters with illegals this year.
The department reports that a total of 2,002,604 from over 150 countries, the most that has ever been recorded in one period.
Per Just the News:
In June, a record 207,416 people were apprehended, the highest number recorded in June in the history of the Department of Homeland Security.
The total includes those apprehended and encountered by U.S. Border Patrol and Office of Field Operations staff. They exclude gotaways first reported by The Center Square, which includes at least another 50,009 people.
The total for June, including gotaways (illegals who evaded capture), was 257,425, a record high for the month.
The last time encounters were nearly this high was the last summer of the presidency of Bill Clinton. In June 2000, 117,469 people were encountered/apprehended at the southern border, excluding gotaways.
Worse, 68 percent were military aged, single men.
This is no less than an invasion of millions of uneducated, often sick and disease-racked, lawbreakers who offer nothing at all to the U.S.A. except a bottomless pit for welfare money.
And it is exactly what the Democrats want. The goal is to weaken the U.S.A.Commentary
