President Joe Biden’s administration New numbers show that illegal aliens crossed the border at the U.S.-Mexico frontier in record numbers last month.
The numbers were released by the administration late Friday night in the hope that news of more than a quarter million encounters would not get much coverage in the media.
U.S Customs and Border Protection (CBP), had 251,487 encounters Last month saw the largest ever number of illegal aliens in America.
Last month’s numbers, combined with the first two months of fiscal year 2023 — October and November — put the U.S. on track to have more than 2.87 million illegal alien encounters on the U.S. southern border this year.
December’s numbers mean that the Biden administration has now experienced ten straight months of 200,000+ illegal alien encounters per month on the southern border.
“A reminder, there have been approximately 1.2 million known gotaways at the southern border since President Biden took office,” Fox News reporter Bill Melugin tweets “The last several months have been around 70,000 per month, per CBP sources.”
“And those are only the *known* gotaways,” Melugin has been added.
Recall that approximately 1.2 million people have fled the southern border since President Biden was elected. According to CBP sources the number of getaways at the southern border has increased by approximately 70,000 each month over the past several months. And those are only the *known* gotaways. @FoxNews

Chad Wolf, former Acting Secretary of Department of Homeland Security, attacked the numbers in a Twitter. “The insanity, insecurity, and chaos continues,” Wolf stated. “This admin has abolished any pretense of border security.”
Kevin McCarthy, the House Speaker (Republican from California), stated that Biden was directly responsible in the crisis at the southern border.
“It’s no coincidence—Biden was sworn in 2 years ago today,” McCarthy spoke. “His policies have opened our border to more illegal crossings, more terrorism suspects, and more deadly fentanyl.”
The latest numbers from Biden’s border crisis are likely to turn up pressure on DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, who had articles of impeachment filed against him last week.
“Since day one, Secretary Mayorkas’ policies have undermined law enforcement activities at our southern border,” Rep. Pat Fallon (R-TX) said. “From perjuring himself before Congress about maintaining operational control of the border to the infamous ‘whip-gate’ slander against our border patrol agents, Secretary Mayorkas has proven time and time again that he is unfit to lead the Department of Homeland Security.”
“His willful actions have eroded our immigration system, undermined border patrol morale, and jeopardized American national security. He has violated the law and it is time for him to go,” Fallon also added.
