A surge in refugees to the United States from Venezuela, Cuba and Nicaragua last September led to the highest level of illegal border crossings in the history of the country by US customs.

Year-end statistics reflect deteriorating economic and political conditions in some countries, the relative strength of the US economy, and the uneven application of asylum restrictions imposed during the era of former US President Donald Trump.

U.S. border officials managed to arrest 227,547 immigrants in September at the U.S.-Mexico border, the third-highest in a month during Joe Biden’s presidency, up 11.5% from 204,087 immigrants in August and up 18.5% more than 19 2001 immigrants. in September 2021.

During the fiscal year ending September 30, 2.38 million immigrants were arrested, up 37 percent from 1.73 million a year earlier, according to statistics released late Friday night.

The annual immigrant total topped 2 million for the first time in August, more than double the highest level during Donald Trump’s 2019 presidency.

In September, US authorities stopped nearly 78,000 immigrants from Venezuela, Cuba and Nicaragua, compared to about 58,000 immigrants from Mexico and three countries in northern Central America, which historically accounted for most of the influx.
