Biden’s gotaways problem is worse than imagined…

According to a new report from Fox News border correspondent Bill Melugin — who filed a FOIA request to obtain CBP thirteen years of stats —illegal migrants who evade capture and escape into the country have skyrocketed under President Biden.

It’s the first time the numbers have been revealed, Melugin says of the stats.

“For perspective, in the decade of FY 2010 through FY 2020 under both Obama & Trump, CBP recorded over 1.4 million known gotaways,” Melugin says. “In the three years of FY 2021 through FY 2023, CBP recorded over 1.6 million known gotaways.”

Those numbers from an administration claiming to have “done more than anybody” to secure the southern border.

Border Patrol Chief Jason Owens says it’s the gotaways that keep him up at night.

“If a person is willing to put themselves into harm’s way crossing through very remote, very dangerous conditions to evade capture, you have to ask yourself why. What makes them willing to take that risk?” he told a House committee in May 2023. “That’s of concern to me. What’s also of concern to me is I don’t know who that individual is. I don’t know where they came from. I don’t know what their intention is. I don’t know what they brought with them. That unknown represents a risk, a threat. It’s of great concern to anybody that wears this uniform.”

Prominent GOP voices reacted to report on X.

“Over 1.6 million known ‘gotaways’ at the border under Biden – all time record by a mile – and now he wants to give illegals federal ID cards? This needs to stop,” said Missouri Senator Josh Hawley.

“On Joe Biden’s watch, more known GOTAWAYS have infiltrated our country than the populations of nearly a dozen different states…This is an invasion of historic proportions,” said Majority Whip Tom Emmer.

Alabama Senator Katie Britt, who visited the border earlier this year, said “Remember, gotaways mean — we don’t know who they are, where they’re doing, or what their intentions are.”

A scary thought — but does Joe Biden care?
