VDARE has already reported the number of illegal aliens whom border agents “encountered” in March, encounter being the Biden Regime’s new word for what happens when an agent collars a border-jumping miscreant.
That number: 221,303, or 7,138 every day.
But now, U.S. Customs and Border Protection has published the official number, which is 33.4 percent more than February’s 165,894.
And just so everyone knows borders agents and officials at ports of entry aren’t handling mostly “families” or “unaccompanied minors,” 76 percent of this mass of humanity, 169,062, were single adults.
Total encounters since October 1, the beginning of fiscal 2022: 1,060,954.
Of those who tried to jump the border, 717,302, or 67.6 percent, were single adults. Another 223,827 were in “families,” many of which are undoubtedly fraudulent; 72,384 were “unaccompanied minors.”
The balance showed up at ports of entry.
Bonus: Biden released 80,116 illegals to infest and colonize a town near you. Total released for the fiscal year: 398,816.
That’s about the population of Anaheim, California.
