Now that the midterms are around the corner, the Biden administration is slowly waking up to an issue that has many Americans, especially those in the border areas, very concerned - migration and border security.

According to the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) services data, in September, it encountered 227,000 migrants crossing into the U.S. from Mexico. That brings the tally to more than 2.76 million arrests for the fiscal year ending September 30. In addition, immigration officials estimated that at least 1 million "got-aways" have slipped through the Border Patrol and entered the U.S under President Joe Biden. According to CBP, 19% of the September southern border encounters involved people who had been encountered at least once in the previous 12 months.
