According to a report from The Dialy Wire, daily border crossings are hitting near all-time highs as facilities and resources along the southern are being bombarded by historic numbers of crossings.
From The Daily Wire:
The Biden administration has yet to release official immigration totals for the month of August, but reports suggest numbers are climbing back to the peak in May. From Friday to Monday, an average of 9,000 immigrants a day reportedly crossed the southern border. On Monday alone, over 9,700 immigrants were reportedly caught or processed crossing the southern border illegally and through ports of entry.
NEW: Past four days (Fri-Mon) total migrant encounters at the SW border (BP+OFO) exceeded 35k at an average of nearly 9,000 per day per CBP sources. Exact count: 35,573 encounters / 8,893 daily average… This does NOT include Known Gotaways @FoxNews

NEW: Per CBP sources, in the last 24 hours, Border Patrol apprehended over 8,000 illegal immigrants, & when combined w/ CBP ports of entry, there were a staggering 9,700+ migrant encounters across the border in one day. Highest day on record was 10,000+ in May before T42 ended.

Neither total includes got-aways, leaving the real number of immigrants who entered the country almost certainly higher. The record for daily crossings was set back in May before the repeal of Title 42 — roughly above 10,000 a day.
Texas Rep. Chip Roy says his office is putting pressure on the Department of Homeland Security.
“So my staff is pushing on the Department of Homeland Security and Texas DPS to get us additional information on this. It’s highly concerning,” Roy told The Daily Wire. “I’m not in a position to fully articulate exactly what’s happening other than it is problematic and a continuation of these wide open border policies, where they’re trying to figure out where to put people.”
