Over the last few months, border crossings have increased dramatically.
In April and May alone, there were almost 500,000 border crossings.
Even more problematic than the migrant encounters are those getting away.
Reports are now breaking that gotaways have increased by 18 percent over last year.
On the Run
If you read BND regularly, you know that is something that I have been warning about for months.
Typically, we see about 10 percent of the migrant encounters slip between the cracks.
With the massive surge and new border policies, my concern was that more and more people would be getting away, entering the country and never seen again.
That is exactly what is happening.
Many of our border agents have been turned into processing clerks, so there is less manpower on the border, which means it is far easier for illegals to avoid capture and disappear into the country’s interior.
I am going to go out on a limb and say a significant amount of these are nefarious actors, as the average illegal knows that even if they are captured, Biden’s policies will more than likely result in them getting released into the country.
Last year, from July 1, 2020, to June 30, 2021, 389,000 gotaways took place.
From July 1, 2021, to June 30, 2022, 476,000 gotaways took place, an increase of 18.3 percent.
This would be in addition to the roughly one million illegals that have also been released.
If the current pace continues, and all signs point to it increasing, we could have close to one million gotaways next year.
With Remain in Mexico now dead in the water, it is not out of the question that all told, we have about three million illegals floating around the country over the next year.
