... 1.7 million illegal migrants were recorded on the southwest land border, making it the highest number of illegal crossings since at least 1960, when the government first began keeping a record.

It was nearly four times higher than the previous year, with 27% of migrants stopped having been detained at least once in the previous 12 months, reported CGTN....

...Meanwhile, 479,000 migrant families were recorded — around 48,000 fewer than in 2019 — and almost 147,000 children crossed the border without parents or guardians, reported US Customs and Border Protection.

It marked the largest number of minors since 2008 when the government started keeping a record of unaccompanied children.

People from 160 countries in Asia, Africa, and Latin America were recorded, with the largest number from Mexico...

We need a study of how many of these incoming families are extended family members - those that have existing relatives in the US who facilitated their travel and/or who they immediately went to live with once arrived here

If we were getting the best and brightest, Mexico and South American nations would collapse.

But that is not who is coming.

At best, that “1.7 million” is a SWAG (Scientific Wild-A**ed Guess), that probably far underestimates the actual number crossed into this country since January, 2021. Add to that, deportations have been down sharply, so once they arrive, their chances of leaving other than voluntarily are somewhere between fat, slim and zilch.

These other countries are getting rid of THEIR social problems.

Some of the illegals are criminals fleeing justice, some are fleeing other responsibilities (like family).

But I assure you that the core group that has been bought in by Soros-funded NGOs are the shock troops who helped foster socialism all over Latin America. They helped install Chavez and supported Maduro after the election.

These shock troops will organize the uneducated and devoted communists so that when they need the big uprising, it will happen in cities across this nation....bigger than ANTIFA/BLM....and they will demand an end to capitalism and the installation of socialism.

The left is playing chess while we play tidily winks. They are 10 moves ahead of us.

This is so so so insanely dangerous, I don’t think many people realize that we could have an explosion where 100 million, half a billion and beyond could all storm the border and there would be nothing we could do about it. We have a population of 330 million right now. Imagine that doubles in the next 3 years, violence would be the new currency.

I suspect the left knows this and it is part of their plan.

“1.7 million illegal migrants were recorded on the southwest land border, making it the highest number of illegal crossings since at least 1960, when the government first began keeping a record.”

And 1.7 million illegal aliens crossed without being recorded?

“The left is playing chess while we play tidily winks. They are 10 moves ahead of us.

If a bunch of hicks, sitting out here in the woods, can see the reality of the situation and what's happening to our nation, surely the hell those supposedly highly educated DC lawyers can see the hand writing on the wall.. The ONLY explanation possible is treason at the highest level of our government..

Somebody better step up real soon or it's going to be too late.. Maybe it already is...

"In vain, after these things, may we indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation. There is no longer any room for hope. If we wish to be free if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained, we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of Hosts is all that is left us"!

Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations; and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave… There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come.

It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death! Patrick Henry, 1775.

What are we, mice or men...? :(

Yeah, and they're already shooting up Tulsa. But our moronic mayor thinks the added population is a good thing.

Liberals. Absolute wastes of oxygen.

Nahhh...The ‘government’ is too busy trying to bring more and more BS charges against Trump and his supporters.

THAT’S where their resources, time and energies are spent!

THAT’S what they THINK they were elected to do!

Dereliction of duty and oath at the highest level. Guilty of treason and worthy of toppling.

Didn’t the guy who’s leading that huge caravan presently on its way say they were “ready for war”? The photos I’ve seen of the caravan reveal that the vast majority of them are young men.

This is an invasion force, pure and simple. They’re not armed in the conventional sense. Their weapons are far more insidious and will drain our country and cause nothing but chaos. These are the shock troops of the Great Reset and the Soros-directed New World Order. Goodbye, national sovereignty and secure borders. Goodbye language, culture, and the American way of life.

I think you can easily double or triple these numbers….for years they were throwing a number of 13 million when real estimates were 40-50 million….they intentionally under report the numbers hoping to get amnesty approved….when that happens we are done as a sovereign country…
