BEDLAM AT THE BORDER! 233K Illegal Migrant Encounters in August; Report

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.22.23

According to the official RNC Research X account, more than 232,000 illegal immigrants were encountered at the southern border in August; they estimate 7.5 million illegal migrants have crossed under Biden.

“BREAKING: 232,972 illegal immigrants were encountered at the southern border in August — the 30th straight month of the worst border crisis on record. 7.5+ million illegal immigrants have crossed the border since Biden took office,” RNC shared on X.

NBC News is reporting that 1,300 illegal migrants are currently crossing the southern border daily.

From NBC News:

Long considered the most dangerous area to cross the U.S.-Mexico border, the Tucson sector is now also its busiest. On average, more than 1,300 migrants cross daily despite temperatures that regularly top 100 degrees, according to Customs and Border Protection data obtained by NBC News.

“This is a very rough, rough entrance into the United States,” said Jim Chilton, a rancher in Arivaca, Arizona, who regularly sees migrants cross his 50,000 acres of land.

“It’s gotten worse,” he said, noting a seemingly undeterred migrant population traversing his ranch.

Most of the migrants trying to cross Chilton’s property are single adult men trying to evade detection by Border Patrol. But in other areas, like around Nogales, families with young children are turning themselves into agents to seek asylum.
