America only saw around 389,000 gotaways all of the 2021 Fiscal Year.
Sources within the Department of Homeland Security told Bill Melugin at Fox News that illegal immigrant “gotaways” have already hit over half a million this fiscal year.
Gotaways are illegal immigrants people see crossing the border but are never caught.
The border averages around 55,000 gotaways per month.
The fiscal year started on October 1. We have three months until the end of the fiscal year.
2021 fiscal year only had 389,155 known gotaways. Add that with the gotaways of 2022, then we have 900,000 since the beginning of the 2021 fiscal year.
NEW: Per DHS sources, there have been over 500,000 known gotaways at the border since FY’22 began on 10/1, far eclipsing the 389,155 gotaways Secretary Mayorkas reported in all of FY’21.
Approx 900,000 gotaways since FY’21 began, bigger than population of San Francisco. @FoxNews

Backing this up— My DHS sources also confirm more than 500,000 gotaways since October.
A “gotaway” is someone seen on a camera or in a bailout/pursuit and never apprehended. https://t.co/uooxiiizpZ

Rep. Tony Gonzales (R-TX) told Trey Gowdy the border is “the furthest thing from secure” after a visit:
“It’s the furthest thing from secure. I represent 42% of the southern border. There’s certainly no one in my district who thinks it’s secure,” Gonzales said.
He recalled weeks prior in June that a tractor-trailer in Texas revealed a human smuggling operation that had over 50 migrants die after the truck was abandoned.
Although the situation appeared dire, Gonzales described meeting with Mayorkas to discuss ways to improve the migrant crisis.
“About three weeks ago, Secretary Mayorkas came to my office in D.C., we sat, and we spoke about a few things. I asked him for one thing in particular: to help with this crisis. That’s repatriation of flights out of Del Rio, Texas. Those are essentially flights for folks that do not qualify asylum which are about 95% of migrants coming over. They get put on a plane, and instead of getting sent to another I.C.E. detention in the United States, they get sent back to their country of origin. It’s the only way this goes away,” he explained.
