40K Migrants Apprehended at Border in 10 Days

Border Patrol agents have encountered nearly 40,000 migrants at the southern border during the first 10 days of August.

The unofficial reports were obtained and shared in a report by Breitbart News.

"Unofficial reports obtained from law enforcement by Breitbart Texas reveal that during the first ten days of August, Border Patrol agents apprehended 39,324 migrants who illegally crossed the border between ports of entry. This is an average of 5,708 apprehensions per day," Breitbart News reported.

"The Tucson and Rio Grande Valley Sectors reported 10,867 and 10,465 migrant apprehensions, respectively. The five Texas-based border sectors accounted for 23,119 of the 39,324 migrant apprehensions," it added.

“First of all, I think what it represents in this administration is not being honest with the American people. I learned a long time ago that the intentional omission of a material fact is the same thing as a lie. They're using a sleight of hand like a good magician to get us to focus on only what's happened in our Southern border," Former Acting Commissioner of Customs and Border Protection Mark Morgan said.

"Meanwhile, what they're not telling you is what's happening across the nation. This fiscal year, we're on track for over 3 million nationwide encounters. That's a 360% increase from when they took over in the past 29 months," he added.

July numbers showed about 137,000 border crossings, up 38% from the previous month.

The numbers continue to show the lack of response to the border crisis under the Biden administration whose policies have shifted from Trump's border wall to stopping construction and allowing in record levels of migrants.

The actions have led to Republicans seeking to impeach Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, though the move has been unsuccessful.

The numbers are likely to continue, remaining a major factor for Republicans seeking to win the nomination to run against the president in 2024.
