Rep. Chip Roy, a Texas Republican, is raising awareness of how serious the immigration problem has become along the border between the United States and Mexico.
Roy wants President Joe Biden and Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas to be removed from office, according to a report by The Conservative Brief.
When Roy mentioned the number of illegal aliens found along the southern border of the United States, conservative commentator Jesse Kelly responded by saying:
“What Joe Biden is doing at our border is impeachable. It’s more impeachable than Watergate. This is an attack on the sovereignty of America and it’s coming from the Oval Office. Republicans should move to impeach after 2022.”
In response to Kelly's post, Roy supported the idea of removing Mayorkas and Biden from office.
A report for the year The House has not done President Joe Biden's immigration plans any favors. According to the Center for Immigration Studies estimate, more migrants were apprehended at the border in October and November of 2022 than in all of 2020.
Former immigration court judge Andrew Arthur, who now works for the Center for Immigration Studies, claimed that the 411,000 illegal immigrants apprehended during six months exceeded the number apprehended for the full year 2020.
“In November, agents at the Southwest border apprehended more than 206,000 illegal migrants, an increase over October’s apprehension totals (just fewer than 205,000), and the highest total for that month ever (records go back to November 1999)," Andrew Arthur, who is a former immigration court judge said.
"There are any number of ways to look at last month’s apprehension totals, and none of them are good. Agents at the Southwest border set a new apprehension record in FY 2022, when they caught more than 2.2 million illegal entrants, blowing away the old record (set in FY 2021) by more than 547,000."
“November is the second month of the federal government’s new fiscal year, and last month agents apprehended nearly 40,000 more illegal migrants than they did in November 2021 — a 23 percent increase.
"In October and November — the first two months of FY 2023 — agents have caught more than 411,000 aliens who entered illegally over the Southwest border,” his report said.
“That’s more apprehensions in just two months than agents made in all of FY 2011, FY 2012, FY 2015, FY 2016, FY 2017, FY 2018, or FY 2020. Only Going to Get Worse. As bad as these apprehension numbers are, they’re only going to get worse once CDC orders, issued pursuant to Title 42 of the U.S. Code in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, expire. Those orders direct DHS to expel all illegal migrants at the nation’s land borders,” he said.
“Even though CDC’s Title 42 orders mandate the expulsion of aliens who have crossed the U.S.-Mexico line illegally, just fewer than 65,100 illegal migrants apprehended at the Southwest border were expelled in November under Title 42 — 31.6 percent of the total.
"That was the fewest migrants expelled under Title 42 in a month since January 2021, a month in which agents apprehended just over 75,000 illegal entrants and expelled more than 62,000 (an 82.7 percent expulsion rate),” the former judge said.
