Biden Border Chief Spins 199,976 Illegal Crossings As Good Thing

  • Around 199,976 migrants were intercepted at the border by authorities in July. Last month’s figures are a slight decrease from the 207,416 encountered in June and lower than the 213,592 encountered in July 2021.
  • “This marks the second month in a row of decreased encounters along the Southwest border,” CBP Commissioner Chris Magnus said in a statement on Monday. “While the encounter numbers remain high, this is a positive trend and the first two-month drop since October 2021.”
