More illegals flooded the border in 2022 than ever recorded in U.S. history, according to the federal government.
The U.S. Customs and Border Protection says that in 2020, there were 458,088 encounters at the border between illegals and border agents. Last year, that number skyrocketed to 1,734,686. And the total this year already flew past all of 2021 with 1,946,880 land border encounters with illegals.
Per The Blaze:
According to the Washington Office on Latin America’s Adam Isacson, even if totals were skewed by “repeat crossers” — illegal aliens who had been picked up and expelled previously in the same fiscal year — this year’s numbers will still break previous records. “No matter how you measure it,” he said, “this will be the largest year ever.”
67% of all illegal aliens encountered in July were single adults. Only 37% of illegal aliens met at the border were processed for expulsion under Title 42, whereas the remainder were processed under Title 8 and placed into removal proceedings.
66 illegal aliens listed in the Terrorist Screening Database were among those CBP encountered this year at the border.
Republican Rep. Paul Gosar (Ariz.) responded to the recent CBP statistics, claiming that “The Biden Regime has facilitated an invasion of our sovereign borders of more than 4.2 million illegal aliens since January 2021.”
For the seventeenth straight month, more than 150,000 illegal aliens crossed the southern border including 200,000 illegal aliens in July 2022. The Biden Regime has facilitated an invasion of our sovereign borders of more than 4.2 million illegal aliens since January 2021.

This is nothing short of an invasion of our country.
The bulk of these people flooding across our border have no education, no skills, are often sick and racked with disease, and many are criminals completely aside from breaking our laws by entering our country illegally.
Most of these people come here solely to take our welfare and to live off and drain the resources of productive Americans.
