New reporting suggests that the U.S. Border Patrol experienced the highest number of border encounters ever recorded in a single month — a staggering figure north of a quarter of a million. With a president like Joe Biden in charge and with a Democratic Party doing everything to encourage illegal immigration, it’s no wonder those numbers are so high.
On Saturday, Fox News’ Bill Melugin and Griff Jenkins reported “Per CBP sources, initial data for September shows there were over 260,000 migrant encounters at the border, making it the highest single month ever recorded.”
As pointed out by Jenkins, “The previous highest month was this past Dec of 252,320.”
BREAKING: Per CBP sources, initial data for September shows there were over 260,000 migrant encounters at the border, making it the highest single month ever recorded. This, as a government shutdown looms which would result in Border Patrol agents & CBP officers not being paid. https://t.co/TTu2m9Qoxz

The data comes as the White House continues to claim that the southern border is secure and that the Biden administration’s policies are working as intended.
“The president has worked very hard to implement a strategy, when it comes to the border, that is humane, safe, and has orderly enforcement,” White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre recently said.
But as previously discussed, orderly does not mean that illegal aliens are turned away at the border. Rather it means that they are let into the country with ease.
In other words, the Left’s definition of “order” simply means that illegal aliens are “processed” by immigration officials and then released into the country via new “legal” measures.
So, the Biden administration has contrived new ways of speeding up the process for individuals to apply for asylum. It has focused on moving illegal aliens into the country at a faster pace. It has done everything to entice illegal immigrants to come to the country — relaxing deportations, providing free flights and phones, and moving toward allowing hundreds of thousands of individuals to have the ability to legally work in the U.S.
The message is clear for illegal aliens around the globe: It’s a good life in the U.S. if you can cross the border, and it will remain that way so long as Biden and his gang run the show. Get in while you can.
