Why isn’t the Left concerned with these Russians?

CBP Encountered 703 Russians Illegally in U.S. in July

(CNSNews.com) – The number of “encounters” with illegal aliens at the southwest border originating from countries other than Mexico and the “northern triangle” climbed to 59,006 in July – a 24.9 percent increase from the previous month and 328.6 percent increase from the (pre-COVID) July two years ago.

Figures released by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) on Thursday also showed significant jumps between June and July in the number of “encounters” of migrants hailing from Russia (from 402 to 703) and Colombia (from 481 to 748), while the number from Ukraine more than doubled (from 48 to 101).

The topline figure released by CBP, a total of 212,672 encounters on the southwest border in July, had been expected, after a senior Department of Homeland Security (DHS) official in a court filing early this month put the number at around 210,000.

That figure, 212,672, is the highest recorded since fiscal year 2000. It marks the continuation of a steeply upward trend since the beginning of 2021: 78,442 in January, 101,095 in February, 173,265 in March, 178,850 in April, 180,641 in May, 188,829 in June, and now 212,672 in July.

The July total is a 419.6 percent increase over the same month one year earlier, when 40,929 encounters were recorded (a figure possibly skewed by COVID-19 pandemic), and a 160 increase over July 2019, when 81,777 encounters were reported.


Because Trump isn’t the President anymore.
