76,000 Immigrants Entered The U.S. In February...But There's No Emergency?
The number of people crossing the border illegally reached a 12 year high in the month of February.
More than 76,000 illegal immigrants entered the country. This number is more than double at the same time last year.
According to Breitbart,
U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) reports that 76,103 migrants appeared at ports of entry and illegally crossed between ports in February. This is the largest number of apprehensions and inadmissible migrants for a February reporting period in 12 years, CBP stated Tuesday.
Of the 76,103 migrants who came to the border seeking admission or illegally crossing between ports of entry, 62 percent were family units and unaccompanied minors. This presents both a border security and humanitarian crisis at our southwest border, U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin K. McAleenan said in a press conference on Tuesday afternoon.
United States Border Patrol Chief of Operations Brian Hastings told reporters that during February, Border Patrol agents apprehended more than 66,000 migrants who illegally crossed the border from Mexico between ports of entry. This is up from nearly 48,000 in January — a nearly 40 percent increase. When compared to the first five months of Fiscal Year 2018, this fiscal year has seen a 97 percent increase, he stated.
“A lot of folks look at that and they say, ‘we have seen numbers like that in the past,” Hastings explained. He said that many people do not understand the “significant change in the demographics of what we are seeing today is what presents us and our partners with a lot of challenges.”
If this isn't a crisis in need of a national emergency, then what is? We have people coming here illegally and attacking our citizens!
What more do liberals really need before they realize something is wrong here?
And I'm not the only one.
I am so beyond tired of the games played by the people WE PAY to serve & to protect our country! I’ve already lost one brother to an illegal immigrant from the south, do your freaking job &
#BuildTheDamnWall this has gotten ridiculous & out of control!

Not acceptable. How can you not call this an emergency
@RandPaul Our system, our agents, and the taxpayers cannot handle this amount of illegal immigration. It is a crisis!

There is most definitely a crisis happening at the border. The only people denying it are Democrats, and even some of them are finally affirming that something more is going on at our border than what Nasty Nancy is telling them.
