Illegal Immigration Levels Hit New Record High In August



Border crisis

Border officials encountered more than 232,000 migrants attempting to illegally cross the southern border in August, the highest number ever recorded for that month, according to new data from Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

“CBP’s total encounters along the Southwest border in August were 232,972,” a press release from CBP said. “Recidivism following the end of the Public Health Order under Title 42 has significantly decreased. Among CBP’s 232,972 overall encounters along the Southwest border in August 2023, 11% involved individuals who had at least one prior encounter in the previous 12 months, compared to an average one-year re-encounter rate of 14% for fiscal years 2014 – 2019 and a repeat encounter rate of 35% in August of 2022.

“ In April 2023, the last month in which the Title 42 Public Health Order was fully in place, repeat encounters accounted for nearly a quarter, 23%, of overall encounters. The number of unique individuals encountered by CBP along the Southwest border was 164,911 in August 2023,” the press release added.
