President Obama and his administration have been making numerous last minute ditch efforts to counter the impending policies that will be enacted by President-Elect Donald Trump in January. One of these efforts is upping the presence of illegal immigrants, in order to counter Trump’s proposed deportations.
The Obama administration has placed another 6,051 unaccompanied illegal children into American communities in the month of October. That averages to about 195 kids per day.
Children who come across the border unlawfully and without a parent or guardian are being released at an alarming rate, and Obama’s policies and initiatives are contributing to this. Customs and Border Protection apprehended 46,197 illegal aliens crossing into the United States unlawfully in October. This includes 13,124 members of family units and another 6,754 unaccompanied children.
This marks October as the highest illegal crossing rate of the 2016 year. Previously, the month with the highest rate was May with 40,337 illegal aliens being caught or tracked. October usurped this number by another 6,000 illegal aliens.
Another shocking statistic reported by U.S. Customs and Border Protection: October 2016 illegal immigration saw a 96% spike compared to October of 2015.
