An explosive new report from Fox News reveals that a whopping 180,000 illegals have crossed the border in May.
Fox News covered a segment on the border crisis and also reported that morale is “low” among U.S. Custom and Border Patrol officials.
Below is a transcript of the Fox News segment, via Grabien:
I can tell you we talked to a lot of border patrol agents on the ground. They are not very thrilled with the job the administration is doing either. Many say their frustration levels are shooting through the roof and morale is at rock bottom levels.
They are certainly not getting a break on this Fourth of July holiday weekend. Take a look at this video yesterday. This is something that plays out here almost every day, a group of 80 my grands that were apprehended after they illegally crossed and gave themselves up to border patrol. These are mostly family patrol units.
That’s part of the reason why Texas governor Greg Abbott put out a call to help. States like Florida, Nebraska, Iowa, and Idaho are sending enforcement out to help with the situation. Take a look at the live fox drone. You can see the incomplete border wall. That’s why this spot has been a hotspot where migrants like to come over. What is happening now, all eyes waiting for border patrol to release numbers. 180,000 in may. We’ll see what happens in June.
A whopping 500,000 illegal immigrants have crossed the southern border into the United States since Joe Biden appointed Kamala Harris as the “border czar.”
According to the Washington Free Beacon, only three months have passed since Harris took on the responsibility and the half a million figure only refers to those who have been apprehended.
Let’s repeat that: we are only aware of 500,000 illegals who have been caught at the U.S.-Mexico border in the last three months.
Image how many got into the country that we do not know about.
Data from CBP says around 180,000 immigrants are being caught per month.
In April agents arrested 178,854 illegal immigrants, the highest monthly figure for 21 years. That figure was then surpassed in May as agents apprehended 180,034 illegals.
Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel tore into Harris for her continued “failure” and refusal to visit the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border.
During an interview on Fox News, McDaniel was asked about the Biden administration’s response to the crisis.
She said Harris has sent a clear message to the American people: she doesn’t care.
“Look, the border is in crisis and I think every American looks at what’s happening with 200 percent increase in people coming through, 14,000 children unaccompanied last month, Harris,” McDaniel said.
Florida Republican Sen. Rick Scott released a statement to his website slamming Kamala Harris for only “flying over the border at 35,000 feet” while she met with other world leaders instead of addressing the Biden border crisis.
“Flying over the border at 35,000 feet doesn’t count as a visit. Now, 123 days since taking office, it’s shocking to see the lengths to which President Biden and Vice President Harris will go to avoid seeing the border crisis for themselves,” he said.
He continued: “Apprehensions at the border rose above 178,000 in April alone, nearly 6,000 a day. This is about the safety of American families. We must secure the border now.”
