Illegal Crossings At Northern Border Set To Break 2023 Record

 Illegal immigrant crossings on America’s northern border with Canada are on track to break the previous record, which was set just last year.

Customs and Border Patrol agents recorded 9,460 illegal crossings on the northern border thus far in the 2024 fiscal year, which began in October 2023. The figure is already nearing the record set by the 2023 fiscal year, when 10,021 illegal crossings were recorded.

With five months remaining in the 2024 fiscal year and summer on its way, illegal crossings on the northern border are poised to surge past last year’s record. The Swanton Border Patrol Sector, which covers New Hampshire, Vermont, and parts of New York, has been one of the busiest areas on the northern border. Some residents along the northern border have resorted to carrying firearms to ensure their personal protection after witnessing groups of illegal immigrants coming across the border.

The surge of illegal immigrants on the northern border comes as the United States has experienced record-breaking surges of illegal immigration under the Biden administration, with over 9.5 million nationwide encounters and 1.7 million estimated illegal immigrant gotaways recorded under his term.

The drastic increase in illegal crossings on the southern border have resulted in some Border Patrol agents from northern sectors being reassigned to the south, leaving America’s border with Canada increasingly vulnerable.

The foreign-born population present in the United States has also spiked to a new high under Biden at a whopping 51.6 million, an increase of 6.6 million since the Democrat took office. The increase has been primarily driven by illegal immigration.


Immigration has now become one of the most important issues for voters as we near the 2024 presidential election, with multiple polls finding that voters consider illegal immigration to be one of the biggest issues facing the country.

Biden currently faces widespread disapproval among voters for his handling of the border crisis, with one recent poll finding that Americans trust former President Donald Trump more than the Democrat incumbent to handle immigration, while other polls have found that Americans are in favor of Trump’s plan to deport illegal immigrants.
