More than three quarters of a million illegal immigrants have entered the US since January 2021, according to a court file
US President Joe Biden has released more than 756,109 illegal migrants domestically into the country since taking office in January 2021, according to a court statement filed Thursday by the America First Legal Foundation.
That total includes the 545,000 border crossings caught and released by customs and border guards, plus the 212,000 migrants detained and subsequently released by immigration and customs.

DHS is reportedly expecting more than 500,000 new arrivals a month if Title 42 is scrapped — more migrants than Americans are born each month, and more than it is equipped to track. Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Arizona) said he expects as many as 30,000 migrants each day as Biden pushes through his plan to end Title 42 in May in a recent interview with Breitbart, claiming the ultimate goal is to fill the electoral rolls of Democrats who are Democrats. want to vote.

Governors of some border states are fighting back against what they see as economically and politically destructive policies.
