Migrant Encounters at the Border Smashes Record in December as Crisis Continues to Worsen

The crisis at the border is getting worse by the day and previous records of migrant encounters are being shattered, according to Customs and Border Protection (CBP) sources.

A record number of illegal aliens entered the United States in December, the CBP sources told Fox News’ Bill Melugin Friday.

In a post on X, Melugin reported that there were “over 276,00 migrant encounters at the southern border in December, the highest single month ever recorded, breaking the prior record set in September at 269,735, and there are still 3 days of December left,” according to the CBP sources.

This new record number includes over 230,000 Border Patrol apprehensions of illegal immigrants in December, also the highest single month of apprehensions ever recorded for Border Patrol,” Melugin wrote.

We are now at over 760,000 migrant encounters since October 1st, making the first quarter of fiscal year 2024 also the highest ever recorded. That’s a population size bigger than Seattle in just three months. All records being blown out of the water under the Biden admin as the crisis gets worse—not better.

“This is insane,” Musk responded on X. 

This alarming news comes just days after White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters that the situation at the border is “not unusual.”

“What we’re seeing here at the border, the migration flow … increased migration flow, certainly … it ebbs and flows,”  Jean-Pierre said last Friday during the White House daily press conference.

“We’re at a time of the year where we’re seeing more at the border and it’s not unusual,” she added.

But what we’re seeing is not only unusual, it’s potentially nation-destroying.

According to one data analyst on X, since August, there have been more illegal aliens arriving in the U.S. each month, than children being born to American mothers.

“And these are just the official encounters—we don’t know how many avoided detection,” noted “datahazard.”
