‘18,000 Illegal’ Immigrants Per Day: Former Border Judge Predicts

An ex-border judge reacts to the end of Title 42 after a ruling against the Trump-era measure.

  • “If Title 42 ends,” former immigration judge Andrew Arthur said. “DHS expects up to 18,000 illegal entrants per day to pour over the Southwest border.”
  • If the prediction from an influential former immigration judge proves true, that would be about half a million migrant encounters a month at the southern border, the report noted.
  • The daily estimate would outnumber the 17,000 border agents along the southern border of the U.S.
