November Illegal Immigration Rose To 233,000

  • Illegal migrant crossings at the U.S. southern border rose last month to more than 233,000 with growing waves from Cuba and Nicaragua offsetting a decline in Venezuelan aliens, the Customs and Border Patrol reported Friday.
  • While illegal immigration is surging, officials said there was a marked shift in the nationalities of those crossing.
  • According to the CBP, there was a rise of migrants fleeing to the United States from communist countries.
  • “The large number of individuals fleeing failing communist regimes in Nicaragua and Cuba is contributing to an increased number of migrants attempting to cross the border,” a CBP statement read.
