U.S. border officials have reportedly said agents turned away or arrested nearly 190,000 illegal aliens in June -- the highest monthly total in at least a decade.
That's a four-percent increase over May and puts the Biden White House on pace for one million border encounters by the end of July.
“It's a shame that it's just being ignored by the White House because politics aside these are human beings that are going through this, and it just doesn't seem that anybody cares,” says Chris Cabrera, vice president of the National Border Patrol Council.
Clayton Neuhaus told Fox News his family is seeing anywhere between 15 and 100 migrants a day crossing their ranch near Wesleco.
“As soon as they heard catch-and-return policy was going to be stopped and catch-and-release into the American public, they heard that policy was going to be in effect and it was just boom. It was day and night.”
The last time at least one million stops were recorded at the U.S.-Mexico border in a calendar year was in 2006, but the milestone wasn’t reached until December that year.
“The traffic is unreal,” says Cabrera. “We don't have enough buses to get people back into the station to process them. I've never seen it like this. I'll be amazed if we climb even higher than this month's number, which I think we will.”
