The June numbers are in —and they ain’t good.

According to a report from Fox News, The U.S. Customs and Border Protection released its June 2022 numbers for migrant encounters at the southern border: more than 207,000 encounters logged; 15,000 unaccompanied children.

From Fox News:

In the report, the CBP said there were more than 207,416 encounters at the U.S.-Mexico border for the month of June. While the overall number of border interactions is down from May’s all-time high of 239,000, it is the fourth month in a row of more than 200,000 encounters.

Of those total encounters, 26% were seeking to enter the U.S. after having “at least one prior encounter in the previous 12 months,” the CBP said. Also, 68% were single adults, without children or accompanied family members.

The CBP also saw a sizable year-over-year increase in cocaine and methamphetamine seizures, 62% and 14% respectively, while heroin and fentanyl seizures declined by 49% and 41%.

“The men and women of CBP keep our country secure by enforcing our immigration and trade laws at our ports of entry and along our borders,” said CBP Commissioner Chris Magnus.

“While fluctuations are normal from month to month, we saw a 14% decrease in encounters compared to the previous month. We are committed to implementing our strategy of reducing irregular migration, dissuading migrants from undertaking the dangerous journey, and increasing enforcement efforts against human smuggling organizations,” he added.

According to the Daily Mail, six people stopped at the border were on terror watch lists, bringing the total number of terror suspects apprehended crossing the border this year to 56.

This report comes on the heels of one of the biggest fentanyl busts in California state history.

From Fox News:

Law enforcement seized about one million counterfeit pills laced with fentanyl at a residence in the Los Angeles suburb of Inglewood last week, the DEA announced on Thursday.

The pills have an estimated street value of $15 to $20 million and are believed to be linked to a drug trafficking ring associated with the Sinaloa Cartel.

“This massive seizure disrupted the flow of dangerous amounts of fentanyl into our streets and probably saved many lives,” DEA Special Agent in Charge Bill Bodner said in a statement.
