The number of aliens trying to enter the U.S. monthly has quadrupled during the Biden Administration – and that doesn’t even count those who slip into the country without encountering border agents – analysis of U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) data reveals.

During the Trump Administration, an average of 50,789 aliens were encountered at the border by the CBP.

Under the watch of Pres. Joe Biden and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro N. Mayorkas (February 2021-June 2023), that average is nearly four times higher: 193,337.
