(PresidentialWire.com)- The Biden administration might not be talking about it very much, but the border crisis is just getting worse. According to official data, encountering unaccompanied children at the border is now an increasingly common occurrence for Border patrol agents close to San Miguel, Arizona.
On Friday alone, Border Patrol officials apprehended some 93 illegal aliens in one group as they traveled through the desert. Out of those 93, 83 of them were unaccompanied children – and out of those 83, 70 of them claimed to be between the ages of 15 and 17.
Safe in the knowledge that the Biden administration has reversed most of former President Donald Trump’s border policies, parents in South American countries appear to be sending their children on perilous journeys across deserts, rivers, and forests to illegally enter the United States where they may ultimately be let free into the country without so much as a court data.
In late August, data shows that more than 100 unaccompanied children were arrested across two groups within only 48 hours.
Border Patrol officials say that the number of children they have encountered on the border this year is more than at any time in their records, with almost one in 10 migrants arrested in fiscal year 2021 involving unaccompanied minors.
Compare that to fiscal year 2020, where the number of minors apprehended on the border was one-third of what it is now.
The massive influx of illegal aliens has reached a damning point, with more than 200,000 people apprehended by Border Patrol agents in just the last month. And that doesn’t count the number of people who crossed the border without being caught.
A source from CBP said that they are not just struggling to accommodate all of these illegal aliens, but it is extremely difficult and time-consuming to establish the true age of the children, with many claiming to be 16 or 17. Forensic dentist records are often used to determine the true age of people to ensure that adults are not detained alongside children.
