The United States Border Patrol released preliminary immigration numbers Monday. So far it’s the largest monthly encounter since the year 2000.

First, USBP reported 205,029 encounters at the southern border. Then the number of known got-aways at 37,400.

“It’s time to draw a line in the sand, for the sake of our country, our communities, our kids, and those who seek to come here,” Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) tweeted. “It’s time to impeach [Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas] for failing to uphold immigration law, enforce Title 42, and secure our border.” 

Roy also tweeted a breakdown of encounters at each sector across the state of Texas. However his own district isn’t even one of the border districts there.

Meanwhile, sick migrants have crossed the border with ease. According to Roy, thousands of Border Patrol officers contracted the virus and 33 died as a result. The latest report claims 400 active cases of coronavirus among migrants in La Joya, Texas alone. Immigration and Customs Enforcement reported over 1,200 COVID-positive migrants in custody last week.

However, Texas Governor Abbott is doing everything possible to stop the rising immigration. He recently ordered the Texas National Guard to action, having them make arrests at the border.
