Claim: In 2021 so far, 108,000 immigrants have entered the United States illegally

In recent months, the U.S. Mexico border has seen an introduction of immigrants. Part of the increase is due to the coronavirus epidemic and political instability.

Biden's administration has come under fire for his arrival, with top Republicans such as California House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy blaming President Joe Biden's immigration policies for the increase.

In an interview with ABC News on March 16, Biden said there was no "come" to the border. And in his first press conference since taking office, Biden addressed the increase but added that immigration arrives every year during the colder months.

A Facebook post said Sleep, who now claims to have inherited 'dirt' at the border. Fact: 9,000 illegal all in 2020. So far in 2018, 108,000 Americans have entered.

Post errors report border concerns.

Contrary to what this post says, Biden has not claimed a "huge mess" on the border.

However, prominent Democrats, including Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, have expressed similar views. Schmider said All I can say is that Biden has gone into a big mess with immigration, and it's not going to be freed in a month.

The Facebook post about illegal border crossings is not specific in its language and does not specify what the 9,000 or 108,000 figures represent.

The claim was made at a press conference held by the Texas government about the approximately 108,000 immigrants who entered the United States this year. Greg Abbott said. There were 10,000 concerns. There were 108,000 concerns.

The post generally said in 2021, "108,000 entered the United States, but Abbott spoke of only one area on the US-Mexico border. And it is possible that the figure of 9,000 in this post. That means 90,000 for 2020, as Abbott did.

In southeastern Texas, the Rio Grande Valley Sector covers more than 34,000 square miles. In 2020, Border Patrol arrested 90,000 people in the sector, compared to more than 100,000 in 2021.

Enforcement measures classify border encounters: either the deportation of a Title 42 or the arrest of a Title 8, later when refugees are taken into custody.

Administrator Title 42, enacted by President Donald Trump in March 2020, is a federal public health law that allows border officials to deport migrants based on concerns that further spread the coronavirus in their entry.

Border Patrol figures show that in the fiscal year 2021, which began in October, there were 381,636 enforcement encounters on the southwestern border. In January and February - Biden was president for the most part - there were 172,286 contests.

In FY 2021, 64,046 concerns and 317,590 titles 42 have been deported.

In contrast, in the 2020 fiscal year, which runs from October 2019 to September 2020, there were 4003,651 encounters on the southwestern border, with 203,608 arrests and 197,043 heading costs.

On March 16, Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro N. Mayorkas stated the situation on the southwestern border, noting that various factors were affecting the increase in immigrants.

We are in the process of meeting more people on the southwestern border than in the last 20 years, the statement said. We are not evicting non-children.

In a statement, Mayorkas said there was no new trend of border crossings.

We have experienced an increase in migration in 2019, 2014, and even earlier. Since April 2020, the number of competitions on the southwestern border has been steadily increasing.
