    CPB data shows nationwide illegal migrant encounters skyrocket almost 300% since 2020 – By Nicholas Ballasy (Just the News) / Aug 24, 2023

    Nationwide encounters of illegal migrants in FY2022 under Biden were the highest since FY2020, Trump’s last fiscal year in office, and FY2023 is on track to set a new record high across all borders.

    U.S. Customers and Border Protection’s “nationwide encounters” of illegal migrants have gone up almost 300% since 2020, which was former President Trump’s last fiscal year in office, according to a Just the News review of the latest CBP data.

    Nationwide encounters of illegal migrants in FY2022 were 2.7 million, the highest total since FY2020, when nationwide encounters stood at 646,000.

    Since President Biden took office, nationwide encounters have surged. This year’s nationwide encounters of 2.5 million are on pace to surpass FY2022 with two months left in the fiscal year. In July of this year, CBP reported 245,286 nationwide encounters, up from 238,929 last July.

    The southern border alone accounted for the majority of the July 2023 nationwide encounters at 183,503, which represented about a 27% increase from June 2023 at 144,566, according to the CBP’s operational update statistics.
