As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by Breitbart:
A law enforcement source within Customs and Border Protection reports the number of migrants who escaped without being apprehended exceeded 155,000 so far this fiscal year. The source says the rate now exceeds 1,500 “got-aways” per day along the U.S.-Mexico border.
The source, speaking on a condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to speak on the subject, provided Breitbart Texas with new developments in the number of migrants escaping Border Patrol apprehension. The source says the number of migrants avoiding apprehension by the Border Patrol surpassed 155,000 for this fiscal year which began on October 1, 2020. On average, over the last three weeks, nearly 1500 migrants per day avoided apprehension.
The article goes on to state the following:
As Breitbart Texas reported, in late March, the got-away total reached more than 130,000 — frustrating Border Patrol leadership. During all of Fiscal Year 2020, 69,000 illegal migrants managed to avoid apprehension by the Border Patrol. In just over six months of this fiscal year, the number has more than doubled over last year’s entire-year figures. Sources report the sharpest increase occurred following President Joe Biden’s inauguration in January.
These figures are generally not reported to the public by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials. CBP agents get the count by watching border cameras and using aircraft drone footage. CBP also use “sign-cutting” techniques to count footprints that cross the border.
One Border Patrol agent who wants to remain anonymous said, “That’s where it gets tricky. On a small trail, dozens can walk all over each other’s footprints, so you just do your best. Often, they’ll glue carpet to the soles of their shoes making detection even harder.”
CBP says it can be hard to get a good count of illegals that cross the border without being apprehended. With this in mind, the estimated number is likely on the low side.
