U.S. Border agents have reported a 233 percent increase in the number of illegals they have encountered at the border year-over-year as Joe Biden’s wide-open border policy continues to leave the floodgate open for millions of coronavirus-infested illegals to flood our country.

Border Patrol reports encountering more than 200,000 illegals in August, Fox News reported on Wednesday.

Fox News first reported that there were 208,887 encounters in August. While it marks the first decrease in migrant encounters seen under the Biden administration, where migrant encounters have been sharply rising for months, it is only a 2% drop over the more than 212,000 encounters in July.

Additionally, the 208,887 number for August represents a 317% increase over last August 2020 which saw 50,014 encounters — and a 233% increase over August 2019, where there were 62,707 amid that year’s border crisis.

In August, 49% of apprehensions were single adults, down 7% from July, and 44% of migrants overall were expelled via Title 42 public health protections put in place under the Trump administration and extended by the Biden administration.

The only good thing about the recent problems with the border is that the U.S. Supreme Court ordered Biden to re-instate Donald Trump’s “stay in Mexico” policy where illegals applying for entry will have to stay outside the U.S. while their requests are winding through our immigration system.

But that is a small victory. Biden is flooding this country with millions of sick, dirty, uneducated aliens, many of whom are sex predators, gang members, and murderers.
