Earlier: Biden Rush: Illegal Border Crossing Numbers Down Slightly, But Still Amazingly High—Highest October In 22 Years!
This is the latest chart of the Southwest Land Border Encounters from the Border Patrol, released on Friday, of course, the third Friday of a month in which the fourth Friday is Christmas Eve:
You'll notice it shows a slight uptick in November. However, compare it with earlier Novembers, at the left side of the chart, because it's in "Fiscal Year 2022":
CIS's Mark Krikorian links to a Washington Post story on the November numbers:
"While November arrests were lower than in the summer months, they were much higher than is usual for this time of year, and more than double the 72,000 taken into custody in November 2020."— Mark Krikorian (@MarkSKrikorian) December 17, 2021
Border arrests ticked up 5 percent in November, first increase since summer https://t.co/unabye14vr So much for the downward "trend" the White House was touting. It'll keep fluctuating but stay at historically high levels until the root cause -- Biden -- is gone.— Mark Krikorian (@MarkSKrikorian) December 17, 2021
Republicans should consider impeaching Biden based on the numbers alone.
