Joe Biden’s lax immigration policies and welcoming tone have resulted in border crossings by convicted criminals surging by 380 percent in one sector at the U.S.-Mexico border.
Newly revealed figures from Customs and Border Patrol reveal that one of the 20 border sectors has become an unprecedented hot spot for convicted criminal illegals to cross.
According to the National Pulse:
Customs and Border Patrol revealed figures showing that one of 20 border sectors is experiencing a nearly 400 percent increase in attempted border crossings.
The shocking figure is buried in a recent Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) press release, “Convicted Murderer and a MS-13 Arrested by RGV Border Patrol.”

The press release details how the Rio Grande Valley (RGV) sector of the border has arrested 1,625 criminal aliens in fiscal year 2021 in comparison to 338 migrants last year:
“With the rising numbers of unaccompanied alien children, family units, and single adults encountered by Border Patrol; criminal alien apprehensions are also increasing. RGV sector has apprehended 1,625 criminal aliens fiscal year to date, compared to 338 this time last year, a 380% increase,” CBP reveals.
“These criminal aliens were convicted here in the United States for crimes other than immigration, ranging from murder, sexual crimes, assault, and narcotics trafficking,” the press release clarifies.
The border crisis created by the Biden administration is about to get a lot worse in the coming months.
According to a report from CNN, internal government calculations from the Biden administration project that officials expect to encounter an estimated two million people at the border in 2021.
“US Border Patrol encounters are also expected to be largely made up of single adults, who are being turned away at the US southern border as soon as they’re encountered under a public health order, and as a result, might also account for repeat crossers,” CNN reported.
The Biden administration is projecting that the number of unaccompanied children crossing the U.S.-Mexico border could spiral from more than 16,000 this month to as many as 26,000 in September, Axios reported.
Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich is going after Joe Biden with everything he has.
In a letter, Brnovich urged Republican Gov. Doug Ducey to declare a state of emergency in the state and deploy the National Guard to deal with the surge in migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border.
“Reversing the devastating trends at the border will require enforcing the rule of law and holding the federal government accountable,” Brnovich said, urging the state government to act “swiftly.”
Brnovich calls on Ducey to declare a state of emergency and convene the state’s emergency council to “address the border crisis and the human and illegal drug trafficking that will continue to flow from it.”
