Biden's border crisis migrates north as record number of illegal immigrants enter US

"Everybody in this area is on edge," said a resident along the New York-Canadian border.

Illegal immigration crossings have skyrocketed across the US/Canada border with authorities reporting that Border Patrol agents have seen a drastic increase in encounters compared to last fiscal year.

According to US Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Border Patrol agents encountered 4,827 illegal immigrants at the US/Canadian border between October 2022 and April 2023, compared to 2,238 encounters for all of fiscal year 2022, Daily Caller reports.

Border Patrol says that while agents have seen a more than double increase in encounters in the first seven months of fiscal year 2023, 2,458 of those encounters were illegal immigrants from Mexico, according to the outlet.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's lax border policies grants Mexicans the authority to fly into the country with electronic travel authorizations, which can be easily obtained with the low price of $7.00. They do not have to present visas, granting them easy access to the northern nation.

National Border Patrol Council President Sean Walsh warned about the increase in illegal crossings along the north, telling Daily Caller that, "The northern border is less secure than it ever has been and the security speaks for itself."

"If we're losing twelve times the amount of people just in this fiscal year alone than in the whole last year, the cartels and criminal organizations have taken advantage and exploited the border and this administration’s policies or lack of policies to address security," Walsh said, who oversees the Vermont, New York, and New Hampshire sector of the northern border.

The increase in illegal crossings have residents living in northern border towns concerned and questioning what the future could look like if President Joe Biden and Canadian PM Justin Trudeau fail to take necessary measures to ensure the safety of both Americans and Canadians.

"Everybody in this area is on edge," Dan Cowan, a resident along the New York-Canadian border, told Daily Caller.

"We don't have the holding capacity for Border Patrol or US Customs. What are they gonna do with these people when they're getting here? They’re not deporting them," Cowan explained.

The state of New York has recently declared a state of emergency as illegal immigrants pour into the Big Apple after illegally crossing into the US from Mexico.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams has been struggling to contain the mass influx of illegal immigrants and has been transporting them to northern towns in Orange County and Rockland County in Upstate New York, specifically the city of Newburgh, which had hotels evict homeless veterans to make room for illegal immigrants.

In October, the Democrat Mayor declared a state of emergency and requested $1 billion in aid from the Biden administration to help with assistance. Mayor Adams asked a judge last week to revoke the city's "sanctuary status."
