The final tally of illegal aliens apprehended at and between ports of entry for fiscal 2019 is less than expected but still shows that the U.S. border with Mexico is wide open and too easy to cross.

And though the number for September dropped substantially from the atmospheric figures this summer, it was still higher than any monthly figure for fiscal 2018 and higher than all but three months of 2017.

Customs and Border Protection apprehended a little fewer than one million illegals this fiscal year, and just more than 50,000 in September. The year’s total exceeds the population of all but the 10 largest cities in the United States.

September and the FY 19 Total
Illegals caught reached 52,546 for September, the final month of fiscal 2019. Border cops caught 40,507 crossing the border illegally, while 12,039 showed up hat-in-hand at ports of entry.

Total apprehensions for the year were 977,509, with 851,508 caught jumping the border and 126,001 stopped at ports of entry.

Those two figures break down thusly:

• Single Adults 301,806
• Families 473,682
• Unaccompanied minors 76,020

• Single Adults 67,006
• Families 53,430
• Unaccompanied minors 4,614
• Accompanied minors 951

Of all those apprehended then, 527,112, or 53.9 percent, claimed to be in “families.”

That number is significant because illegals know that landing in the United States as part of a “family unit” almost certainly means immediate release, which enables them to disappear and move into the heartland. Deportation becomes impossible. Thus do illegals “rent” children to cross the border or otherwise try to cross as “families” with phony birth certificates and other ID.

Daily Numbers
The number from September is welcome news in one sense: It’s a dramatic decrease from the high of 144,116 in May, some 63.5 percent. That sharp decline began in June, when CBP caught 104,311 crossers.

Until then, it appeared as if CBP would apprehend well more than one million illegals, given the rate at which they were entering.

The year began with a 60,781 apprehensions in October, and quickly worsened with 62,469 in November, then let up with 60,794 in December.

After a slight reprieve of 58,317 in January, a tsunami hit the border.

March through June, CPB caught an average of 3,783 illegals every day. For the year, CBP collared about 2,678 illegals seven days a week.
