NPR: “Busloads” of Migrants Arrive at U.S.-Mexico Border

Nancy Pelosi and the Left are determined to deny the very real humanitarian crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border to thwart the border security declaration by President Trump. Now, however, that narrative is starting to slip, as even the NPR says that “busloads” of illegal immigrants/asylum seekers are arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border. As a result, illegal crossings have reached a 10-year capacity, while U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement are overwhelmed.

While Democrats insist that there’s “no crisis at the border,” left-leaning NPR reports that illegal border crossings just hit a 10-year high and migrants are literally arriving by the “busload.”

“Since last year, Border Patrol agents say, they have routinely encountered large groups of a hundred or more migrants at the border, many of them arriving by bus from Guatemala,” NPR reports. “According to immigration authorities, the passengers consist almost entirely of families and children who are looking for Border Patrol agents to turn themselves in to. Agents say they’ve encountered 70 large groups since last year.”

The numbers are staggering: Over the last five months, the number of migrants attempting to cross the border picked up by Border Patrol has increased over 90% over the same period last year. U.S. Customs and Border Protection say they’ve picked up a stunning 260,000 people since October and 66,000 in February alone.
