Of the 211,401 that were encountered, Border Patrol were the ones who apprehended 182,114 of them. In March, the total number was 191,956 and in February, it was 155,656. As always, this does not include the number of gotaways.

In just one week in April, Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz reported there had been almost 17,000 people who managed to avoid being caught by his agents. The week before, that number was around 12,000.

Fox News National Correspondent Bill Melugin also noted CBP reported 16 people on the FBI’s terror watchlist were arrested by Border Patrol at the U.S.-Mexico border in April.

The increase in illegal crossings was due to the weather being warmer than the winter months and with Title 42 expiring in May. Border Patrol had been apprehending 10,000 people a week in May, leading up to Title 42 expiring on May 11.

"Much better than you all expected," President Joe Biden said in response to being asked about the situation at the southern border during the weekend.
