(Texas Scorecard) — As the overall number of illegal border crossings continues to decrease, new unofficial numbers reveal that during the month of June, Border Patrol apprehended fewer than 88,000 illegal aliens.

A U.S. Customs and Border Protection source confirmed with Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin that last month, Border Patrol agents apprehended 87,670 illegal aliens at the southern border—its lowest number in more than three years.

The prior low was in January 2021 with 75,316 apprehensions.

However, while the number of arrests dropped, the numbers do not include the nearly 60,900 illegal aliens encountered at ports of entry in June—most of whom utilized the controversial CBP One app, resulting in a majority of them being released into the country.

These numbers also do not reflect the nearly 30,000 illegal aliens paroled into the U.S. via the Biden administration’s CHNV (Cuba, Haiti, Nicargua, and Venezuela) program. The mass parole program allows illegal aliens from the aforementioned countries to fly directly into the U.S. The aliens then receive work permits and a two-year authorization to live in the U.S.

Texas Scorecard previously reported that the Biden administration flew thousands of illegal aliens into Texas airports under the CHNV parole program. In total, the Department of Homeland Security has flown more than 400,000 illegal aliens into 50 different airports around the United States since January 2023.

According to Melugin, the Biden administration is allowing around 70,000 to 80,000 illegal aliens to enter the U.S. every single month through the CBP One app and the CHNV parole program.

While a new law making it a state crime for individuals to enter the country illegally is on hold, Texas is attempting to curb illegal border crossings by arming its soldiers and state troopers with nonlethal pepperball guns and continuing to line the border with concertina wire.
