U.S. Customs & Border Protection numbers are in for July: 199,976 migrant encounters logged —and that doesn’t include “gotaways.” The migrant crisis rages on with no acknowledgment from the Biden Admin.

[T]he almost 200,000 encounters still represents a stubbornly high number of migrants hitting the border and a continuing border crisis that has overwhelmed agents and border communities and dogged the Biden administration.
Two-thirds of all migrants encountered were single adults, with 134,362 encounters in July, but just 74,573 encounters resulted in an expulsion under the Title 42 public health order — an order put in place during the Trump administration and that the Biden administration has sought to abolish but has so far been blocked by court order. This relatively low number of removals is in part due to the increase in migrants coming from countries such as Venezuela, Nicaragua and Cuba, which are not subject to Title 42 due to the Mexican government’s refusal to take them.
