The border crisis rages on.

According to a breaking report from the Republican National Committee, 204,561 illegal migrants were encountered at the southern border in May 2023; monthly apprehensions have surpassed 150,000 for 27 consecutive months.

From the RNC:

In total, 6.9 million illegal immigrants have crossed the border since Biden took office, including 370,176 unaccompanied children and more than 1.4 million illegal immigrants who managed to escape Border Patrol and vanish into the country. 125 individuals on the terror watchlist have been arrested so far this fiscal year — a MASSIVE increase from the previous administration.

Meanwhile, illegal drugs continue to flow into the country at an alarming rate — with just five to ten percent being intercepted as officials struggle to contain the smuggling. In May, 2,626 pounds of deadly fentanyl and 11,882 pounds of methamphetamine were seized at the southern border, with much more getting through undetected.

U.S. Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz is retiring this month after being with the agency for 32 years.

I leave at ease, knowing we have a tremendous uniformed and professional workforce, strong relationships with our union partners, and outstanding leaders who will continue to tirelessly advocate for you each day,” Ortiz said in a memo obtained by outlets including NewsNation.
