In the first half of September this year, border authorities of the United States have recorded more than 142,000 migrant encounters.
The current surge in migration trends shows more migrants than all other monthly highs. According to official data released by the Mexican President, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador.
President Lopez Obrador shared the statistical data during a press conference in the morning.
He has stated that he wishes to visit Washington in November. He wants to discuss various issues with the US Government, including migration.
The US government has been able to check the number of migrants after intercepting them during their attempts at illegal crossings.
However, instances of the migrants coming up at the legal border points are increasing every day. This migration trend increase began surprisingly after a decline in mid-May this year.
Experts believe that they have witnessed the implementation of stricter asylum regulations in the U.S.
The increase in illegal migration has been a strain on the U.S. Mexican relations.
The mayor of Eagle Pass, in Texas, has been forced to declare a state of emergency due to a “severe undocumented immigrant surge” into their borders. Reports say that at least several thousand migrants were able to arrive illegally in the area in recent days.
The problem of illegal immigration now poses a significant challenge to U.S. President Joe Biden’s administration.
The Democrat leader is facing immigration-related challenges and border infiltration complaints even since taking office in 2021. As he prepares for re-election in 2024, the Republicans have showered the Democrats with criticism of their lenient immigration policies.
