Not long after Joe Biden claimed the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border is “under control,” new data reveals that Biden could not be further from the truth.
Chief Patrol Agent Chris Clem tweeted that the Yuma Sector, which stretches across Arizona’s border with Mexico, apprehended over 1,600 illegal immigrants over the weekend.
And that is just at one major border sector. There are dozens more.
“#YumaSector apprehended more than 1,600 migrants over the weekend. Agents encountered 13 groups of 30+ that illegally crossed into the US from Mexico. The migrants crossed in areas where there is no infrastructure to deter people from illegally crossing the border on foot,” he tweeted.

Biden’s border crisis continues to get worse by the day.
A new report reveals that the administration is apprehending nearly 6,000 illegal immigrants a day at the U.S.-Mexico border.
And that number doesn’t even include the illegal aliens who are getting into the country through fraudulent and other sneaky ways.
The continued influx of people at the border reveals an ongoing struggle for the administration that has rushed to increase capacity for the thousands of migrant families, children, and adults crossing into the US each week.
Throughout April, Customs and Border Protection has encountered an average of just under 6,000 people daily at the southern border, according to a Department of Homeland Security official, which is in line with the March average of around 5,560 people daily.
During the first three weeks of April, around 122,000 people were encountered by US border authorities on the southwest border, another signal that the month will likely be similar to March, according to preliminary data obtained by CNN.
Last week, Arizona Sheriffs Mark Lamb and Mark Dannels, Illinois Sheriff Tony Childress, and North Carolina Sheriff Sam Page made a lot of noise going after Biden.
During an interview on Fox News, the sheriffs who serve counties at the U.S.-Mexico border and within the United States had sharp criticisms for Biden’s lack of any real mention of the ongoing border crisis during his address to the joint session of Congress on Wednesday.
Lamb told Fox News host Harris Faulkner that the crisis caused by Biden’s administration has created a nightmare situation, especially for communities on the U.S.-Mexico border.
“I’m 70 miles out from the border. They can’t even leave their kids to watch the younger kids because people coming into their carport, trying to open their doors. This is a dangerous situation…We hear the people’s voices and we’ll do our job,” Lamb said.
Texas Republican Attorney General Ken Paxton had sued Biden’s administration for allegedly releasing Covid-infected illegal aliens into the United States.
Last month it was reported that the Biden Administration was releasing Covid positive illegal aliens into the US interior.
While there’s an increase in Covid-infected illegal aliens coming into America, Biden has substantially decreased the number of illegal aliens they are arresting.
According to Breitbart, Immigration and Customs Enforcement have carried out 75% fewer “priority” arrests, and arrests the Biden administration deems “non-priority” have been cut by over 80% compared to the same time frame in 2020.
Last week, it was revealed that the Biden administration is directing Border Patrol agents to dramatically decrease using DNA tests on apprehended migrants at the border, which was used by the Trump administration to identify “fake families.”
Border officials are now administering fewer rapid DNA tests among migrant families amid as the border crisis is raging under Joe Biden.
