Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson on Thursday said agents are seeing a renewed surge of people attempting to sneak into the U.S. through the southwestern border over the past few months, with more than 46,000 caught in October alone.

It’s the highest tally since the surge of illegal immigrant children in the summer of 2014.

The numbers were released two days after the presidential election that culminated a campaign in which the porous condition of the southwest border was a heated topic.

Mr. Johnson said he is scrambling resources to try to contain the situation, including putting more illegal immigrants into detention and urging other countries to expedite the process of taking back their citizens.

“Our borders cannot be open to illegal migration. We must, therefore, enforce the immigration laws consistent with our priorities,” Mr. Johnson said in a statement announcing the numbers.

    I am sick of the Left butchering the legal definitions of peoples status in this country. You can either be a citizen, a documented immigrant ( a legal alien), or an illegal alien . In the USA aliens are granted two types of Visas, immigrant ( permanent resident / legal alien) or non-immigrant. (temporary /legal alien) ALL Immigrants are non-citizens hence they are all Aliens, until such time that they become a citizen. IF YOU ARE UNDOCUMENTED YOU ARE AN ILLEGAL ALIEN ….NO…. IFS….ANDS….OR….BUTTS [not a typo]!!!!!
    Anything else is nothing more than putting lipstick on a male transvestite…he’s still a male ….I didn’t want to offend a pig because I’ve never seen one of my pet pigs EVER try to put on lipstick, they are happy just being what they are!!!!

    This country is supposed to be a country of LAWS but the Progressive Democrats and RINOS seem to think that people only have to obey Laws they
    like not the Laws they don’t like. All Laws should apply equally to every US Citizen. If you are in the country Illegally then the Federal Law of Deportation should apply to you. Almost every country in the civilized world Enforces their Immigration Laws, Including Mexico who is very strict, we should be just as strict. If some of the Illegals who are taking part in the nationwide Riots did this in Mexico they would be arrested Immediately or maybe even shot.

    WHY ISN’T A LAW BEING ENFORCED BARRING ALL MUSLIMS FROM THIS COUNTRY. THIS LAW WAS PASSED IN 1952.

    WHY DO YOU THINK ANYTHING OBAMA HAS DONE IS LEGAL, HE HAS CONFESSED TO BEING A MUSLIM ON NAVTION WIDE TV. EVERYTHING HE HAS SIGNED, OR ORDERED IN 8 YEARS IS ILLEGAL.

    WHY HAS HILLIARY HAD A MUSLIM FROM A RADICAL FAMILY AS HER TOP AIDE FOR 10 YEARS, HUMA COULD BE A PERFECT PIPELINE TO PASS SECRETS TO THE MUSLIM WORLD.

    WHY HAS OBAMA SURROUNDED HIMSELF WITH MUSLIMS ANOTHER PERFECT PIPELINE TO PASS SECRETS. HE HAS DECLARED HIMSELF A MUSLIM.

    WHY DOES THE BIASED NEWS MEDIA SAY HE IS NOT A MUSLIM, WHEN I HAVE A LIST OF WHERE 34 TIMES HE HAS EITHER HELPED THEM OR SAID HE WAS ONE.

    WHY GET MAD AT PUTIN, HE SAID THAT THERE WAS NO PLACE IN RUSSIA FOR ANYONE THAT WOULD NOT FOLLOW THEIR LAW AND SPEAK THEIR LANGUAGE, THEY WOULD HAVE TO GO TO A COUNTRY THAT DID.

    WHY HAS HILLIARY, OBAMA, KERRY AND THE BIASED NEWS MEDIA DONE EVERYTHING THEY CAN TO HELP THE RADICAL MUSLIMS.

    WHY DID THIS ADMINSTRATION TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO?

    WHY TRADE 5 TERRIOST FROM CUBA FOR ONE TRAITOR?

    WHY TRY AND TAKE OUR GUNS? HITLER DID, & HISTORY TELLS US WHAT HAPPENED THERE.

    WHY ALLOW A MINIMUM OF 36 MUSLIM CAMPS HERE IN THE STATES? MOST CLOSE TO MILITARY BASES. I PERSONALLY VERIFIED THE ONES IN SHAWNEE NATIONAL PARK, IN IL. AND THE ONE AT DOVEER, TN. AND THE FEMA CAMP IN EAST KY.

    WHY ARE THERE 5 MUSLIM CAMPS IN N. VIRGINIA, CLOSE TO DC? ARE THEY TO TAKE WASHINGTON?

    WHY BUILD A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE, SOME MORE THAN ONE, AT TAX PAYERS EXPENSE, WITH ARMED GUARDS? ARE THEY TO HOLD MUSLIMS?

    WHY ARE WE SENDING BILLIONS TO ARAB COUNTRIES, AND LETING OUR COUNTRY GO TO POT?

    WHY DONT THEY ENFORCE THE LAW BARRING ALL MUSLIMS FROM THIS COUNTRY?

    WHY IS THE MUSLIM MAJOR IN TEXAS LIVING THAT KILLED 14 SOLDIERS AND WOUNDED A LOT MORE?

    WHY ARE THEY RELEASING ALL MUSLIMS IN CUBA TO GO BACK INTO ACTION TO KILL OUR SOLDIERS?

    WHY DONT WE HANG ALL MUSLIMS CAUGHT AND BURY THEM WITH PIG PARTS, LIKE GENERAL PERSHING DID IN THE PHILLIPENS? HE STOPPED A MUSLIM UPRISING BY DOING JUST THAT.

    WHY WAS OBAMA ALLOWED TO SWEAR IN CARLOYN WALKER AS JUDGE IN BROOKLIN USING THE QURAN?

    WHY ALLOW ILLEGALS TO FLOOD OUR COUNTRY WHEN THEY COST MORE PER YEAR THAN THE IRAQ WAR.

    WHY SEND BILLIONS TO MUSLIM COUNTRIES TRYING TO KILL US.

    YOU SAY THAT A MUSLIM TRY AT A TAKEOVER IS IMPOSSIBLE, I CAN TAKE 100 WELL ARMED PEOPLE AND TAKE ANY BASE IN 1 HOUR, OUR TROOPS ARE NOT ARMED.

    BETTER COAT ALL YOU AMMO WITH PIGS BLOOD OR GREASE, LET THE WORLD KNOW YOU ARE DOING SO.

    THE LAST WHY, WHY DONT THE BIASED NEWS MEDIA REPORT ALL THIS??? COULD THEY NOT BE FOR THE INVASION”

    TRUMP IS NOW THE PRESIDENT, SO, GET ON BOARD AND HELP HIM STRAIGHTEN THIS MESS OUT.

    I am all for LEGAL IMMIGRATION but 100% against ILLEGAL INVADERS. There are quotas in place and these should be followed without any exceptions. Once quota is filled, no more, period.

    I hope President Trump listens to what Dr. Ben Carson said about stopping illegals by taking away all of the freebies they get for being here. Maybe then my SS check will cover a months worth of food and other necessities.

    • Rodney Steward

      I believe he will, Dr, Carson is a very smart man!!
