These are not November's numbers, which the Biden Administration will no doubt release on the third Friday in December (the fourth Friday this month is Christmas Eve) but October's:
In October I wrote:
Usually the border crossing numbers from last month are released near the beginning, or in the middle, of the month, often on a Friday, the traditional day for burying bad news. This time, they were released on October 22, the fourth Friday of a five-Friday month.
These figures were released on November 15, 2021.
The numbers are down slightly, but are still enormous compared to what Trump achieved in stopping illegals.
The Center for Immigration Studies points out that even if they are lower than September, these are still the highest October crossing numbers in 22 years.
"While the number of apprehensions was slightly lower last month than it was in September, the more than 158,000 aliens caught at the Southwest border in October is still the highest total for the month in the last 22 years."https://t.co/WNPQqmKfta— Center for Immigration Studies (@CIS_org) November 17, 2021
