Mayorkas Says Border Patrol Encounters Down By Half Since Title 42 Expired | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Publisher's Note: This post appears here courtesy of the The Daily Wire. The author of this post is Daniel Chaitin.

    Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said on Sunday that U.S. Border Patrol encounters have dropped by half in the two days since Title 42 expired.

    Around 6,300 encounters took place on Friday and 4,200 happened Saturday - a marked decrease from the over 10,000 reported before the end of Title 42, Mayorkas said during an interview on CNN.

    Pressed on why the numbers have fallen, Mayorkas credited a "vitally important message" encouraging people arriving at the border to take legal pathways toward entry, which he said has been expanded by President Joe Biden in "an unprecedented way."

    Mayorkas also touted stiffer punishments under Title 8, which can include deportation, a five-year ban on entry, and possible criminal prosecution.

    However, Mayorkas conceded it is "still early" to tell when asked by "State of the Union" anchor Dana Bash whether the "surge" at the U.S.-Mexico border has "peaked."

    The pandemic-era Title 42, which allowed authorities to quickly turn away migrants at the border on public health grounds, came to a close at the end of Thursday, and not everyone is pleased with the Biden administration's handling of the situation.

    Republicans have been quick to fault what they say is the government's "open border" policies ahead of what many expected to be a large influx of illegal crossings. And some Democrats have chastised the Biden administration for not doing more. Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-AZ), for instance, said federal agencies "have had time to plan, but their efforts have fallen short" when it comes to helping border communities.

    Mayorkas said he would "respectfully disagree" when asked by Bash to respond to Democrats who believe the Biden administration has "fallen short." He pointed to preparations for the expected influx of people, including the deployment of thousands more personnel and resources to assist Border Patrol.

    "It's extraordinary what we've done over the past 18 months or so," he said.

    A federal judge in Florida issued a ruling on Thursday to block the officials from carrying out a plan to "parole" migrants at overcrowded holding facilities without a mandated court day, an order which the White House called "sabotage" and Mayorkas said was "very harmful."

    During an appearance on ABC's "This Week," Mayorkas said "a number" of individuals were released "because of the surge that we experienced before Title 42 came to an end."

    With the 50% drop in Border Patrol encounters, the secretary insisted the administration is "executing our consequence regime exactly as planned."

In what may be the most divisive period in modern American History, even more divisive than the turbulent sixties due to today's lack of patriotism, consider what are the major catalysts causing so much of this calamity of conflict, and vote: What most instigates the division of America, on this day September 20, 2022?
  Racism within our society
  Sex realignment to the detriment of our society.
  Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border Policy for the Demographic Upheaval of OUR Constitutional Republic
  Rampant Crime in Democratic controlled cities, and the possible contagion elsewhere
  Covid Pandemic, and its mishandling at the political, and bureaucratic levels.
  The unresolved questions /allegation regarding the flawed 2020 General Election
  January 6th Riot or "Armed Insurrection", depending upon patriotic perspective
  Joe Biden as Divisive Leader; Ineffective and Corrupt Executive
  Failed Education Industry, from an overall perspective, regarding all levels of education.
  Propagandistic Media in complete conflict with the First Amendment's guarantee of Freedom of Speech, and the awesome responsibility of a Free Press..
  "Orangeman Bad!"
  Bureaucracy rushing to a behemoth size, its unjustified expense, and far too often overreach.
  The Weaponized Deep State for political purposes
  A secular ambivalence to all that is real.
  Record number of overdose deaths from opioids and now Fentanyl
  Biden Administration's disastrous Foreign Policy
  Bidenflation /supply chain failure inevitably evolving into stagflation and recession.
  "Ultra MAGA Extremists" freely speaking louder AND LOUDER!

The previous poll on Eastern NC NOW showcased what are many of OUR Constitutional Republic's certain obstacles to remain viable, where the top encumbrance to that continuance as a functioning Republic was the Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border. Understanding this overwhelming concern to real America citizens: Do you believe it important to challenge the veracity of those legislated concerns of Democratic Socialists by transporting Illegal Migrants to their Sanctuary cities, counties and states for their direct care?
  Yes; test the depth of their "compassion" by giving Democratic Socialists an opportunity to enact all Sanctuary provisions in their communities to test how much they truly do care.
  No; the Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border Project is designed to only inundate "Red States" to begin their Demographic Upheaval for the benefit of we Democratic Socialists, our politics.
  I generally do NOT care about politics, but it is fun watching abject hypocrites squirm; maybe I will start getting more involved.
