"Tens of thousands of people are coming from Haiti, and many now from countries in Africa, even more so now than South America," Trump's statement read.

A projection issued Friday reported an estimated 1.85 million illegal border seizures for 2021, shattering the previous record of 1.643 million in 2000.
More than 10,000 migrants are now waiting to cross the border, with some reportedly noticed walking back and forth across a river to Mexico as they picked up food and supplies from restaurants.
“It won't be close, and the previous record is likely to be smashed by 200,000 or more,” announced analyst Steven Kopits in a new Princeton Policy Advisors report shared with Secrets.
In a double whammy, he further projected that the fiscal year (October to October) record is on the verge of being crushed.
“With only September left in the fiscal year, the Biden administration is perilously close to setting the all-time record for southwest border apprehensions in a fiscal year. Our current forecast anticipates 1.640 million apprehensions for the fiscal year 2021, with the record from 2000 standing at 1.643 million. That is, a swing of only 3,000 apprehensions would set the record for the fiscal year," stated the analysis from Kopits.
"Put another way, if apprehensions exceed 170,000 for September, the Biden administration will hold the record for the worst-ever fiscal year. Apprehensions have held consistently above 170,000/month since April. A new high is within sight," Kopits said.
