Unrestrained border crossings by non-Americans of many ethnicities continue to be a serious issue. DHS has its hands full due to the virtual flood of humanity trying to get in before the barrier wall becomes a reality. On paper alone, the numbers seem staggering, but I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that if one were required to deal with it in person, it would be absolutely mind-boggling to have to do such a difficult job.
This from Breitbart:
President Trump’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released about 5,500 border crossers and illegal aliens into the interior of the United States over the past seven days, federal data confirms.
From May 28 to June 3, DHS released 5,500 border crossers and illegal aliens into American communities in various states across the country. The latest federal data, obtained by Breitbart News, finds that DHS, in the last week, released nearly 800 border crossers and illegal aliens into the U.S. every single day.
The catch and release process often entails federal immigration officials busing border crossers into nearby border cities — as well as flying them into the interior of the country — and dropping them off with the hope they show up for their immigration and asylum hearings. The overwhelming majority of border crossers and illegal aliens are never deported from the country once they are released into the U.S.
Today, there are anywhere between 11 and 22 million illegal aliens living across the country — the majority of which are concentrated in states like California, New York, Florida, Texas, and Illinois.
In the last week, about 2,500 border crossers and illegal aliens of the 5,500 released were dropped off in El Paso, Texas. Another 1,100 were released by DHS in San Antonio, Texas and another 1,100 were left in Phoenix, Arizona. Since December 2018, El Paso has been forced to absorb nearly 70,000 of these nationals, while San Antonio has had to take 73,100.

The numbers DHS reports are almost more than a person can comprehend. For example, in the last five months, DHS has released at least 196,000 border crossers, and illegal aliens into the interior of the U.S. Not included in that number are the tens of thousands of border crossers and illegal aliens who have been released into the country by Customs and Border Protection (CBP). Adult border crossers with children are allowed in 100% of the time (at this time) and given work permits.
The catch and release rates are even more staggering. By the end of the year, more than 470,000 crossers and illegals will have been turned loose in the USA, not counting those who come across undetected. We already know that the vast majority of the ones who get the summons to return to court to make their entry legal never show up for their hearings but disappear into the woodwork. It’s a mess.
Of course, Democrats continue to throw every imaginable roadblock in the way to prevent securing the border. The mainstream media is complicit in the problem as well because they refuse to report any of these details. They were on it night and day during the weeks before the midterm elections, but once that was behind us, the sound of crickets is deafening, but the flood of illegals continues nearly unchecked.
