Media Spin Nearly Record-High January Border Incursions As ‘Good News’ For Biden


The ongoing invasion at the U.S.-Mexico border continues to rage — but that hasn’t stopped America’s regime-approved media from attempting to downplay its severity.

On Tuesday, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) released monthly statistics showing a nearly record-high number of apprehensions at the U.S. southern border for January. According to the agency, CBP officials apprehended 176,205 foreign nationals along the southwest border. While the figure represents a decrease from the record high of more than 300,000 encountered in December, last month’s totals are the highest number of January apprehensions since the 2000 fiscal year and are higher than any month under former President Trump’s administration.

More than 10 million illegal immigrants have poured over our open border since Joe Biden assumed the presidency in January 2021, according to the Washington Examiner.

Despite the nearly record-setting nature of last month’s totals, legacy media have predictably gone out of their way to mislead Americans about the severity of the Biden-facilitated border invasion. For example, while reporting on the January figures, The New York Times ran the headline, “Illegal Border Crossings Plummeted in January.” The article subhead says the decrease in last month’s arrests when compared to December’s numbers is “good news” for Biden but admitted it “doesn’t change the fact that the number of people crossing into the U.S. has reached record levels during his term.”

The Associated Press and Newsweek ran similarly titled articles, which read “Illegal border crossings from Mexico plunge after a record-high December, with fewer from Venezuela,” and “US Border Patrol Saw Significant Drop in Migrant Encounters in January,” respectively.

CBP’s January report was issued the same day the GOP-led House of Representatives impeached Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas over his role in facilitating the ongoing border invasion. The final vote was 214-213, with three Republican lawmakers joining Democrats in opposing the resolution. The Republican defectors were Colorado’s Ken Buck, Wisconsin’s Mike Gallagher, and California’s Tom McClintock.

Mayorkas is the second presidential cabinet official in U.S. history to be impeached.
