A confidential source within the Customs and Border Patrol agency (CBP) confirmed almost half a million illegal migrants were able to avoid capture by authorities during the fiscal year of 2022, adding to the nation’s ever-growing immigration crisis currently raging at the Southern Border.
Evidence gathered by daily drone data and other government technology showed 476,000 individuals were able to evade Border Agents, according to an exclusive interview with an internal CBP source by Breitbart News.
The daily count of migrants who get away reportedly remains around 1,700. The confidential source went on to say an average of 7,000 migrants are arrested or detained by CBP per day and if this rate continues, the overall number could double by year’s end. Especially given the Supreme Court’s recent ruling in Biden v. Texas, which paved the way for the Biden Administration to end former President Donald Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy.
The original intent of the “Remain in Mexico” policy was to allow migrants seeking asylum in the U.S. to remain in Mexico, while they awaited processing and potential hearings on their cases, as opposed to being released out into the U.S. population without prior vetting.
The High Court ruled 5-4 in favor of Biden, claiming the Executive Branch had the authority to do away with the program if it saw fit. Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh joined the three liberal justices in their ruling.
Roberts, who as the Chief has the power to assign the opinion when he is in the majority, chose to delegate that duty to himself, writing that the Biden administration is in fact violating parts of federal immigration law.
“The principal dissent emphasizes that section 1225(b)(2)(A) requires detention of all aliens that fall within its terms. See, e.g., post, at 8 (ALITO , J., dissenting) (“The language of 8 U. S. C. §1225(b)(2)(A) is unequivocal.”),” Roberts began. “The Government contests that proposition, we assume arguendo for purposes of this opinion that the dissent’s interpretation of section 1225(b)(2)(A) is correct, and that the Government is currently violating its obligations
under that provision.”
However, he continued, that does not justify the argument made in this situation — which stated the Executive Branch went beyond the scope of its authority in ending the “Remain in Mexico” policy. Essentially, Roberts is saying two wrongs don’t make a right and thereby gave justification for the court to rule in favor of the White House.
He directly took aim at Justices Samuel Alito’s dissent writing, “Even so, the dissent’s conclusions regarding section 1225(b)(2)(C) do not follow. Under the actual text of the statute, JUSTICE ALITO ’s interpretation is practically self-refuting.”
This recent spike in illegal immigration comes on the heels of a smuggling operation gone bad that ended with the horrific death of 53 migrants — most of whom suffocated or died as a result of the unsafe conditions that came with undertaking an illegal border crossing inside of a large truck.
Reuters reported last week that two additional men have been charged in U.S. federal court on counts of human trafficking related to the deaths. Both defendants face life in prison or the death penalty if convicted, depending on the Justice Department’s plans for prosecution.
