The southern border has been a hot mess lately, and not the good kind like a piping hot bowl of Texas chili. No, this has been a downright disaster, and it’s all thanks to President Joe Biden and his crew of bumbling Democrats. The state of Texas has been hit the hardest, with over 1.9 million people illegally crossing into the Lone Star State in just 12 months. That’s almost 2 million folks traipsing across the border like they’re on a field trip to Six Flags, except they’re not bringing any funnel cakes or cowboy hats with them.

To put it into perspective, Texas accounted for nearly half of the 4 million illegal border crossers nationwide in fiscal 2023. That’s like Texas being the star quarterback on the border crossers’ football team, leading the pack with all the touchdowns. And if that wasn’t bonkers enough, over 1.4 million people were caught by federal agents in Texas, and almost 450,000 “gotaways” – folks who sneaked into the country without getting nabbed. It’s like a never-ending game of hide-and-seek, except the seekers are border patrol agents and the hiders are really, really good at hiding.
But wait, there’s more! Texas also holds the prestigious title of the greatest number of CBP sectors in the country, with five of them calling Texas home. It’s like Texas is the popular kid at school, with all the sectors wanting to sit at its lunch table. And those gotaways? They’re not just a Texas thing – they make up almost 60% of the total gotaways from the entire southwest border. It’s like Texas is the heavyweight champion of the world, but instead of throwing punches, it’s dodging sneaky border crossers like a pro.
Now, all this craziness is happening while President Biden and his buddies are twiddling their thumbs, and probably eating ice cream. They’ve got no clue how many gotaways are in the country, where they are, or what they’re up to. It’s like they’re the chaperones at a middle school dance, but they’re too busy gossiping in the corner to notice that the kids are running amuck. And don’t even get started on the Border Patrol data – it’s like trying to unravel a mystery novel with a million plot twists. But hey, at least Texas is winning some kind of record, right?
