Cong. Tony Gonzales Joins Stefanik, Kelly & Zinke Calling for Mayorkas to Address Record Apprehensions of Illegals at Northern Border


"In FY 2024 alone, Border Patrol agents are on track to apprehend a record number of illegal immigrants at the Northern border"
 
Texas Insider Report: AUSTIN, Texas (SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS) — This week, Rep. Tony Gonzales (R-TX) joined Reps. Mike Kelly (R-PA) and Ryan Zinke (R-MT), Co-Chairs of the Northern Border Security Caucus, along with Northern Border Security Caucus members Rep. Nick Langworthy (R-NY) and House Conference Chair Elise Stefanik (R-NY) in sending a letter to Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas expressing "serious concern about the unprecedented surge in apprehensions along our northern border."

According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data, in Fiscal Year (FY) 2023, Border Patrol Agents apprehended 10,021 aliens illegally crossing the northern border between ports of entry, including 2,229 apprehensions in the first four months alone. In the first four months of FY 2024, through January 2024, the Border Patrol has already apprehended 4,772 subjects along the northern border, a 114% increase from the first four months of FY 2023.

In FY 2024 alone, Border Patrol Agents are on track to apprehend a record number of illegal immigrants at the northern border.

"While the Southwest Border has been overrun with drug smugglers, we cannot allow another avenue for deadly, illegal drugs into our country and our communities," the Members wrote.

"In FY 2024 alone, Border Patrol agents are on track to apprehend a record number of illegal immigrants at the Northern border. These statistics are yet another example of how the Biden administration is downplaying the serious nature of this orchestrated border crisis. Every state has now become a border state under your leadership – or lack thereof.
