Over 500,000 ‘Gotaways’ in 2022 Thus Far
Since the beginning of 2022, over 500,000 illegal immigrants have made it into America. Despite what officials say, our border is in danger.
From New York Post. More than 500,000 known “gotaway” immigrants have crossed the border into the US but evaded capture since the start of FY 2022, according to a new report….
“Gotaways” is a commonly used term for illegal immigrants who have been spotted crossing the border by agents or on camera but were not caught or processed by officials.
With less than three months left in the fiscal year, 2022 has already seen a massive increase in the “gotaway” from the previous year after DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas testified in April that there had been more than 389,000 immigrants who evaded arrest in FY 2021.
Looking at the two years combined, the department has tracked approximately 900,000 known “gotaways,” according to the report….
While last month was a 14% decrease from May’s jaw-dropping high of 239,416, June’s numbers brought the total number of encounters in FY 2022 to 1,746,119 — the most the agency has recorded for any fiscal year since 1960….
Meanwhile, Mayorkas has insisted the border is “secure” – much to the ire of Border Patrol officials on the ground….
The Biden administration has also been heavily blasted by lawmakers on both sides of the aisle over the ongoing border crisis – particularly as the administration has moved to reverse several restrictive immigration policies put in place by former President Donald Trump.
