The Joe Biden administration has failed to stem the immigrant crisis: Arrests at the US-Mexico border are at their highest level since 1986, with more than 1.7 million illegal immigrants detained in fiscal year 2021 (ending in September).

Then follow the illegal immigrants from Honduras (309,000), Guatemala (279,000), and El Salvador (96,000).
