The number of illegal aliens who jumped the border or showed up at ports of entry in July dropped more than 20 percent from June.

But numbers from Customs and Border Protection still show that illegal aliens are hitting the border at a rate of more than 2,500 per day.

And the total for the year approaches one million, as The New American reported it would when CBP published its figures for June.

The Numbers
CBP’s latest data show that 82,049 illegals hit the southwest frontier in July, a 21.4-percent drop from June’s 104,367. It’s a 43.1-percent drop from May’s high for fiscal 2019 of 144,266.

That brings the total for fiscal 2019, which began October 1, well past 800,000 to 862,785.

At the rate illegals are crossing the border now, 2,647 per day, the 900,000 mark will arrive on August 14.

The number of illegals apprehended in between ports of entry in July was 71,999, and break down as follows:

• Unaccompanied minors: 5,561

• Family units: 42,566

• Single adults: 23,872

That brings the total number of illegals apprehended between ports of entry for fiscal 2019 to 760,370.

The number of inadmissibles stopped at ports of entry in July was 10,050 with this breakdown:

• Unaccompanied minors: 291

• Family units: 4,344

• Single adults: 5,326

• Accompanied minor: 89

The total number of inadmissibles apprehended at ports of entry for the year is 102,415.

Still Coming as Families
The data show that illegals are still trying to cross as “family units,” with 46,910, or 57.2 percent, so designated in July.

Out of the 862,785 who have crossed this year, 474,787 have crossed in “families.” That’s 55 percent.

Illegals cross in “families” because they know they will be released, border officials say.

Border officials have also caught at least 6,000 fake families, CBP chief Mark Morgan recently told a Senate subcommittee. Indeed, such is the incentive that illegals are “renting” children to cross the border with, in the hope border officials won’t catch the fakery, which is sometimes accomplished with phony birth certificates and other ID.
