President Joe Biden’s time in the White House has been short on accomplishments and long on disasters.
From the economy, to crime, to border security, and more – it’s been one mess after another for the Biden Administration.
And President Biden just broke yet another record he didn’t want on his resume.
A record-breaking Presidency
President Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security is trying to convince voters everything is under control on the U.S. southern border.
However, the numbers suggest, not only aren’t things under control, but that President Biden’s immigration policies have created a crisis on our border.
In fact, it seems every month, Biden breaks a new record for the amount of illegal border crossings.
And with the July numbers just being released, it turns out, last month was another record-breaking month for Biden and his open-borders team.
July was a hot month for crossing the border illegally

Customs and Border Patrol agents had 199,976 encounters with illegal aliens at the Southwest border last month – that’s a 50% increase from the same month last year and a whopping 325% percent spike from the average number of July apprehensions under former President Donald Trump.
The July number includes 134,362 single adults, 51,822 family units, and 13,299 unaccompanied minors.
And it’s not just moms, dads, and kids crossing the border – there are terrorists too.
CBP is reporting 10 individuals on the FBI’s terror watchlist were apprehended at the southern border last month – bringing the total for the current fiscal year to 66 terrorists.
Other criminal border crossers are bringing deadly drugs with them.
In fact, 2,071 pounds of fentanyl and 12,989 pounds of methamphetamine were seized at the southern border in July – equivalent to 469 million lethal doses.
It is important to understand, that number only reflects the sized amounts – much more escapes into the interior of the United States while under-staffed agents are busy processing other migrants.
Meanwhile, Border agents were only allowed to expel 37% illegal immigrants – a 7% drop compared to June.
Biden’s America Last policies at play
While American workers are suffering due to the record number of illegals constantly flowing into the country, Biden’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas, is siding with economic migrants against Americans.
“I am, to a great extent, aligned with the expectations of the immigrant community,” Mayorkas said.
The fact is, July was the 17th straight month with more than 150,000 encounters.
For the first ten months of fiscal year 2022 CBP has had more encounters with illegals than it did in the entire fiscal year 2021.
Since President Biden took office, nearly 4.9 million illegal aliens have crossed the U.S. borders.
That number includes the 3.9 million nationwide total reported by CBP – as well as approximately 900,000 gotaways who have entered the country without being stopped per agency sources.
