Despite crime spikes across the country, the Biden administration does not seem to think America has enough criminals here, and so he keeps the border wide open. U.S. Border Patrol arrested more than 10,000 criminals among the 2.7 million illegal aliens who poured across the southern U.S. border in 2022. That’s the highest number of criminal illegals arrested since 2016, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) statistics.
And the criminals keep coming, even as the Biden administration is forcing Arizona to take down its border wall. As usual, it’s ordinary Americans who suffer from the record migrant surge, not politicians. After all, how can we be sure that no criminal illegals escaped Border Patrol? How many criminals are really entering America illegally?
CBP released statistics for FY2022, which started Oct. 1, 2021, and ran through Sept. 30, 2022. During that time, Border Patrol arrested 12,028 criminal illegals. “The term ‘criminal noncitizens’ refers to individuals who have been convicted of one or more crimes, whether in the United States or abroad, prior to interdiction by the U.S. Border Patrol; it does not include convictions for conduct that is not deemed criminal by the United States,” CBP explained.
The 12,028 arrests were an increase from FY2021’s 10,763 arrests, and a massive jump from the 2,438 arrests in FY2020. There were 12,842 “criminal noncitizens” arrested in FY2016, but since then, the number had been steadily decreasing until 2021, perhaps due to the Trump administration’s border policies.
