Border Patrol agents apprehended nearly 182,000 migrants in July who illegally crossed the border between ports of entry. The July apprehensions report marks the first time since Joe Biden took office that the number of apprehensions dropped in a year-over-year monthly comparison.

The Southwest Land Border Encounters Report for July released by U.S. Customs and Border Protection after business hours on Monday confirmed an unofficial report reported by Breitbart Texas earlier this month revealing the apprehension of more than 181,000 migrants. The official number came in at 181,552 migrant apprehensions.

The number of migrants apprehended after illegally crossing the border between ports of entry fell for the second straight month. The number of migrant apprehensions peaked in May at a record-setting 224,397. {snip}
