Biden Friday Night Holiday Document Dump: CBP Releases ‘Record’ November Border Encounter Stats

Biden Friday Night Holiday Document Dump: CBP Releases ‘Record’ November Border Encounter Stats

“CBP reports 233,740 migrant encounters, the highest November ever recorded, and a large increase over last November (174,845),” Fox News border crisis reporter Bill Melugin tweeted.

It’s understandable that on a Friday night just two days before Christmas, most people would be focused on putting the finishing touches on their weekend holiday plans. They aren’t going to be hanging out online waiting for news to drop about Joe Biden’s border crisis.

No doubt that is exactly what Biden’s Customs and Border Protection agency was counting on when it released their border encounters number report for November on Friday night, which showed the largest number on record for the month:

As Melugin also pointed out, the official numbers don’t include “known gotaways,” which are migrants who were seen in surveillance footage but who were able to evade the CBP and squeeze into the United States undeterred:

Here’s the chart from the report, which shows the numbers in comparison to previous months and years:

The report was released at a time when even high-profile Democrats are echoing Republican complaints about the possibility that Title 42 will soon expire, something the Biden administration has long sought to do on grounds that it’s no longer needed. Just last week, Chief Justice John Roberts issued an order that temporarily delayed a rollback of the policy:

“Upon consideration of the application of counsel for the applicants, it is ordered that the November 15, 2022 order of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, case No. 1:21-cv-00100, is hereby stayed pending further order of the undersigned or of the Court.”

California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D), who it has been reported has been meeting with big money Democrat donors and veteran political consultants to discuss a possible 2024 presidential run in the event Biden decides not to, went on record earlier this month to state that California would “break” if Title 42 expired, claiming that several of their migrant sites are already “at capacity”:

Newsom, speaking to ABC News on Monday, said, “The fact is, what we’ve got right now is not working and is about to break in a post-42 world unless we take some responsibility and ownership.”

“I’m saying that as a father,” the governor added. “I’m saying that as someone that feels responsible for being part of the solution and I’m trying to do my best here.”

Newsom claimed the U.S. government is sending “more and more” migrants to California because the state is “taking care of folks.”

“The more we do, the burden is placed disproportionate on us,” he said.

“We’re already at capacity at nine of our sites,” Newsom continued. “We can’t continue to fund all of these sites because of the budgetary pressures now being placed on this state and the offsetting issues that I have to address.… The reality is, unless we’re doing what we’re doing, people will end up on the streets.”

NYC Mayor Eric Adams has also sounded the alarm bells about what he believes the expiration of Title 42 will do to his city:

“Our shelter system is full, and we are nearly out of money, staff, and space,” Adams said this week. “If corrective measures are not taken soon, we may very well be forced to cut or curtail programs New Yorkers rely on, and the pathway to house thousands more is uncertain.”

[…]

Adams, who earlier this week asked for $1 billion to help New York handle “the brunt of this crisis,” said he was “encouraged” by the federal funding, but said that should just be the start.

“With over 800 people arriving in the past four days alone, it’s clear that we still need a comprehensive strategy at our border and additional resources. We cannot be put in a position where we have to choose between services for New Yorkers and supporting arriving asylum seekers,” he said in a statement. Adams has also called for asylum seekers to be authorized to work before six months.

El Paso, Texas, which is run by Democrats, is among the cities hardest hit by the illegal immigrant influx. Ealier this month, El Paso’s Democratic mayor declared a state of emergency ahead of Title 42’s (potential) expiration:

El Paso Mayor Oscar Leeser issued the state of emergency declaration to allow the city on the U.S. border with Mexico to tap into additional resources that are expected to become necessary after Title 42 expulsions end on Dec. 21, the El Paso Times reported.

Leeser had previously resisted issuing an emergency declaration, but said he was moved to action by the sight of people on downtown streets with temperatures dipping below freezing, the Times reported.

“That’s not the way we want to treat people,” Leeser said during a news conference Saturday evening.

[…]

Leeser added that the increase would be “incredible” after [Title 42 expires], when daily apprehensions and street releases could reach up to 6,000 per day, the [El Paso] Times reported.

Incredibly, despite the massive surge in illegal immigration over the course of his presidency, officials in the Biden administration are actually claiming Biden has worked “since day one” to resolve the crisis, and are still blaming former President Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress for the problems at the border.

How they square that spin with Biden’s recent declaration that “there are more important things going on” than the border crisis is anyone’s guess. But rest assured that no matter what their answer is, the problems at the southern border will only get worse if the Biden administration wins in its fight to allow Title 42 to expire.

A third of a million invaders EVERY MONTH.
Aw, poor Democrat asshole offiicials who are being forced to accommodate a couple thousand each month in their deep blue echo chambers.

It’s not even surprising anymore with that retarded pedophile illegitimately sitting in office.

They’re lying. They’ll do what they can get away with.

The non-opposition go along with the feels, as long as the reality doesn’t touch them.

Evan an Orange, Boorish NY Real Estate Operator could get backed by people who want a world that works better for them, and see govt as a way to do part of that.

It’s not hard. Simply don’t celebrate our destruction out loud. Yet, look at all the folks who won’t offer even that, even if they’re lying.

And it’s only about 10% in reality
