It may not be the record he was looking for, but Joe Biden just set a new record for the number of illegal aliens entering the United States across the southern border.
“President Biden’s first full month in charge of the country’s borders set new records for illegal immigration, according to numbers released Wednesday that showed last month was the worst February ever when it comes to illegal immigrant children,” according to The Washington Times.
“Nearly 9,500 unaccompanied juveniles were nabbed at the southwest border, part of an overall surge of migrants that is double what the country experienced last year at this time, and even runs ahead of the record-breaking 2019 border surge. [emphasis added]
“Across all demographics, Customs and Border Protection said it recorded more than 100,000 encounters with illegal immigrants. That’s the fifth-worst month in the last decade, with the four worse months all coming during that 2019 surge…
“The Biden administration has resisted efforts to label the surge a “crisis,” but the new numbers left little doubt among Republicans on Capitol Hill, who said laid blame directly at the feet of Mr. Biden and his policy changes.”
