How many got away? Sources told Fox News that there have been over 1.5 million gotaways since Biden took office.
The Border Patrol has arrested thousands of “special interest aliens” at our southern border in the past two years.
Fox News received the data:
That data, confirmed by multiple CBP sources and which reflects apprehensions between ports of entry between Oct. 2021 and Oct. 2023, shows that agents encountered 6,386 nationals from Afghanistan in that period, as well as 3,153 from Egypt, 659 from Iran and 538 from Syria.
Agents also encountered 12,624 from Uzbekistan, 30,830 from Turkey, 1,613 from Pakistan, 164 from Lebanon, 185 from Jordan, 123 from Iraq and 15,594 from Mauritania. The data does not include information on how many of those migrants were removed, or who were released into the U.S. with a court date.

The Border Patrol agents also lack resources to vet the people who come across the border from those special interest countries.
The agents cannot do anything unless the person has a criminal record in the U.S. or a spot on the federal watchlist.
Without those, the agents do not know if the person has a criminal record or ties to a terrorist organization.
Those countries do not share that information with the U.S.
The Biden administration has decided to finish the border wall, even waiving numerous federal laws to eliminate any delays.
DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said: “There is presently an acute and immediate need to construct physical barriers and roads in the vicinity of the border of the United States in order to prevent unlawful entries into the United States.”
NEW: Internal CBP data provided & confirmed by CBP sources reveals thousands of “special interest aliens” from mostly Middle Eastern countries have been apprehended by Border Patrol while crossing into U.S. illegally over last 2 years.
