Biden’s First Year in Office May Be One of America’s Worst Years for Illegal Immigration

John Binder, Breitbart, June 10, 2021

President Joe Biden’s first year in the White House is set to be “among the ten worst years for illegal immigration” in United States history, new analysis details.

As Breitbart News reported, federal immigration officials apprehended more than 172,000 border crossers in May — a nearly 700 percent increase in illegal immigration compared to the same time last year when former President Donald Trump had implemented fierce border controls.

Princeton Policy Advisor Steven Kopits projects that Biden’s first year in office will be among one of the worst years for illegal immigration in the U.S. since the data started being tracked.

“For the calendar year as a whole, we are projecting 1.2 million southwest border apprehensions, much as we have for the last two months,” Kopits writes in his analysis. {snip}

Should there be about 1.2 million border crossers apprehended at the southern border this year, as Kopits projects, it would mark the highest level of illegal immigration to the U.S. since Fiscal Year 2001 when nearly 1.3 million border crossers were apprehended at the southern border.
