4,900,000 people have entered the country illegally since Biden became president. The details have been included in a report published by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). The figure includes the 3.4 million immigrants registered by the Border Patrol and another 900,000 fugitives who entered the country undetected, FAIR stated, citing sources at the immigration enforcement agency.
To put this in perspective, these numbers are close to the populations of the states of Alabama or South Carolina. FAIR went further to denounce the figures by saying - it reflects the total disarray on the part of the current administration with respect to such a sensitive issue.
Last July alone, 199,976 illegal immigrants crossed numerous checkpoints to enter the United States. FAIR President Dan Stein points out that the Biden administration is not taking either accountability or responsibility and "blames the illegal immigration on all sorts of external factors" for the current situation.
"The endless flow of illegal aliens and the incursion of lethal narcotics pouring across our border will not end until this administration demonstrates a willingness to enforce our laws," Stein explains in the report.
In its report, FAIR highlights the danger of drug trafficking at the southern border and people with possible terrorist ties gaining access to the country.
It has now been 17 months in a row that border patrols have intercepted drug shipments. During the month of July alone, 2,071 pounds of fentanyl and 12,989 pounds of methamphetamine were seized along the border with Mexico.
In addition, 10 people were arrested for being on terrorism watch lists.
