CONGRATULATIONS, JOE —IT'S A NEW RECORD: 234,088 Migrant Encounters in April, Highest in DHS History

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.17.22

Joe Biden is breaking records —just not the good kind.

According to Fox News border correspondent Bill Melugin, the DHS court filing for April shows more than 230,000 migrant encounters were logged at the southern border last month —the highest number in DHS history.

“BREAKING: There were 234,088 migrants encountered at the Southern border in April, per a DHS court filing today. That’s the highest number in DHS history,” Melugin tweeted Monday afternoon. He added that “117,989 migrants were released into the U.S. in April” and “113,248 were removed, including 96,908 expelled via Title 42.”


And with the end of Title 42, that number is only going up. Members of the GOP are doing everything they can to prevent the Biden Administration from lifting the Trump-era health policy that has helped turn migrants around at the border —including filing a lawsuit against Biden.

“Revoking Title 42 will create an unprecedented surge at the southern border and it will overwhelm law enforcement agencies and non-governmental organizations as well,” the Republicans who filed the lawsuit argue. “The U.S. Department of Homeland Security, (DHS), estimates getting rid of Title 42 will result in as many as 18,000 migrants per day – which could mean 540,000 migrants in a single month.”

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) responded to the record-breaking news on Twitter.

“Over 234,000 illegal aliens crossed in just ONE MONTH! This record breaking disaster is the direct consequence of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris refusing to enforce the law. #BidenBorderCrisis”
