Illegal Migrant Encounters Already Exceed 1 Million since October, CBP Data Shows – EVOL

The latest figures from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) show that the federal agency has already recorded over one million encounters with illegal migrants since October 1, when fiscal year 2024 began.

This is the fastest timeframe that one million encounters have ever been recorded in America’s history.

The number is roughly 100,000 encounters higher than the same period last year.

In early February 2023, the U.S. had recorded 908,000 encounters for the fiscal year.

The U.S. is also tracking a higher number of Chinese migrants crossing the border.

Chinese illegal immigrants made up the fastest-growing group of border crossers last year.

Fiscal year 2024 is already on track to shatter that record.

The CBP encountered over 37,000 Chinese migrants last year.

However, they have already encountered nearly 20,000 since October.

The CBP says agents have encountered roughly 150 Chinese migrants per day this fiscal year.

The news comes just after a “bipartisan border bill” crashed and burned in Congress this week.

The so-called “border security” bill allocates a staggering $60 billion to fund Ukraine’s endless war with Russia but offers nothing for border wall construction.
