REPORT: Illegal Border Crossings to Hit 100,000 People THIS MONTH After 'Surge' from 'Caravan'

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.05.19

The number of illegal immigrants crossing into the United States rose sharply in January and February this year, with US authorities warning as many as 100,000 Central American migrants will likely breach the border in March alone.

A new report from the Washington Post shed stunning new light on the border crisis, saying “The number of migrants taken into custody last year jumped 39 percent from February to March, and a similar increase this month would push levels to 100,000 detentions or more.”

“While arrests along the border fell in recent years to their lowest levels in half a century, they are now returning to levels not seen since the George W. Bush administration, driven by the record surge in the arrival of Central American families,” adds the Post.

The revelation comes just weeks after President Trump declared a “national emergency” along the US-Mexico border; effectively bypassing Congress to obtain funds for his long-promised border wall.

BETO GOES BERSERK: O’Rourke Calls for the REMOVAL of El Paso Border Wall

Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke called for the removal of El Paso’s critical border wall this week; saying the physical barrier “has not in any way” made the US “safer” and costs “tens of billions of dollars.”

“Would you -if you could- take the wall down now? Here?” asked MSNBC’s Chris Hayes.

“Yes, Absolutely. I’d take the wall down,” said Beto.

“Here’s what we know… After the Secure Fence Act we built 600 miles of wall and fencing on a 2,000 mile border. What that has done has not in any way made us safer. It cost us tens of billions of dollars to build and to maintain,” he added.

‘SUPER WEIRD’: Cortez Compares Border Security with BERLIN WALL, Says Everybody in DC ‘Like a Spy’

Recently sworn-in Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continued to baffle supporters and critics alike over the weekend; directly comparing President Trump’s border wall with the ‘Berlin Wall’ and saying everyone in Washington, DC is “like a spy.”

“No matter how you feel about the wall, I think it’s a moral abomination. I think -it’s like- the Berlin Wall,” said Cortez.

“Here in DC, it’s like, so weird. Everybody is like, a spy. It’s so bizarre. You can go out to get a coffee and the person in the corner of the restaurant goes and texts all of their friends. It’s super weird,” she added.
