Trump warned this would be the case, and yet again he was proven right.
The Biden administration recorded its second-highest number of illegals alien apprehensions along the southern border last month as the ongoing national security and humanitarian catastrophe continues.
More than 200,000 migrant encounters at the southern border occurred in August, a whistleblower in the Department of Homeland Security revealed. That marks the second month in a row that apprehensions exceeded the 200,000 mark. Additionally, the 208,887 number for August represents a 317% increase over last August 2020 which saw 50,014 encounters — and a 233% increase over August 2019, where there were 62,707 amid that year’s border crisis.
These numbers are preliminary and are expected to rise.
Fox News reporter Bill Melguin tweeted out videos this week that showed thousands upon thousands of illegal aliens waiting to be apprehended by U.S. law enforcement officials.
NEW: A source on the ground sent us this video showing thousands of migrants under the international bridge in Del Rio, TX with more showing up constantly. We’re told the situation there is getting worse every day and the numbers are growing by the hour. @FoxNews pic.twitter.com/nu32xrsNOK

Chad Wolf, former acting DHS secretary slammed the administration in a statement, saying that Biden’s “failed border-security policies are simply unsustainable.”
“The men and women of federal law enforcement cannot continue to deal with these crisis-level numbers. They are already overwhelmed and overburdened. The breakdown is coming,” Wolf said.
“President Biden simply isn’t listening, and I fear that we are staring down the prospect of a preventable disaster stemming from this crisis,” Wolf added.
Mark Morgan, former acting CBP commissioner also criticized the Biden administration, saying that contrary to what they claim, “this crisis extends well beyond local border communities.”
“The consequences of Biden’s border crisis are impacting our country’s public safety, health, and national security,” Morgan said. “What comes across our southern border makes its way to every town, city, and state in our nation. We are seeing a significant increase in fentanyl pouring across our borders, expansion of human trafficking, and criminal aliens breaking into our country undetected as a result of the current open border policies. Where is the outrage from the mainstream media?
At this rate, the United States cannot withstand added pressure on our southern border.
