Officials sound alarm at number of unapprehended ‘gotaways’ at southern border

Though the Biden administration has spent the last couple of months downplaying the deteriorating situation at the southern border, recent reports suggest that the influx of migrants actually known to state and local authorities represent just one facet of the dangerous scenario being allowed to unfold.

According to the Washington Times, the number of “gotaways” – illegal entrants who succeed in eluding detection as they make their way into the country – has more than doubled since last year, a clear indication that wave of unchecked migration into the United States is far larger than most Americans realize.

Authorities on the ground are sounding the alarm about this escalating trend, with Sheriff Joe Frank Martinez of Val Verde County near the Rio Grande saying, “People are coming in by the droves,” also suggesting that the official numbers of “gotaways” reported by the Texas Department of Public Safety are probably far too low.

As the Washington Times notes, while a great deal of attention has been focused on the wave of unaccompanied minors coming across the border in recent months, local officials suggest that an even greater security risk is posed by the influx of individuals who are never even apprehended at all, making their way into the country’s interior without ever being stopped.

An unnamed official from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) told NPR that the rise in “gotaways” observed by surveillance cameras and sensor equipment in recent weeks has been exacerbated by the fact that enforcement officers have had to concentrate on processing the massive number of migrants being held in border detention facilities.

President of the National Border Patrol Council, Brandon Judd, agreed, telling the Times that Mexican smugglers are taking advantage of the fact that federal authorities are currently overwhelmed by the influx of youth at the border in order to focus on sneaking drugs and other migrants across the border at points where they are less likely to be caught. Back in 2015, current Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Majorkas also admitted that the number of actual apprehensions – currently at record highs – is a “strong indicator” of overall attempts, including those made by “gotaways.”

Investigative reporter Sara Carter told Fox News earlier this month of the true danger the current scenario poses, indicating that border officials worry that a portion of those who cross undetected are suspected terrorists, as was the case with two Yemeni nationals on the U.S. terror watch list who were apprehended near Calexico, California.

In addition to the aforementioned national security risks posed by unapprehended migrants, there is a local toll being taken as well, with an observed rise in violent confrontations between area residents and illegal entrants seeking to evade capture. One Texas school district cautioned parents that their children could be in danger while walking home at the end of the day, and dangerous high-speed car chases involving smugglers have become commonplace, resulting in serious injury and death, according to the Times.

It is well past time for the Biden administration to take action to stem the tide of migrants coming into the country because, whether they are the result of a misguided attempt to reverse Trump-era immigration policies or a deliberate push to import legions of future Democrat voters, the consequences of the current approach are dangerously unacceptable.

  1. Freedom of speech & English only in America!! WE need Trump back in the White House & In Charge like a True ELECTION APPOINTED HIM TO BE !!! GET HIM THERE Immediately!!! God Please Help the True Elected President to Take Over his duties Right NOW!!!! UNITED WE STAND !!! OUR NATION UNDER GOD!!! AMEN!!! AMEN!!!!! AMEN!!!!!!!!!!!

      1. Me too we have a brainless idiot traitor in the White House now get him out while we still have a country

      2. I agree also! Get the Dems out before they ruin our country, but too late, they already are. What a bunch of mercenaries the democratics are.

          1. Yes, but how in the world are we going to get all of these illegals OUT OF OUR COUNTRY now? God help us. I feel a pit in my stomach for whoever will be the next victim of an illegal. It is going to happen. This is out of control and Dems are DISGUSTING. LEARN OUR CONSTITUTION AND TEACH IT TO YOUR KIDS NOW.

      3. How much more of this chaos is Biden going to allow and which the Democrats actually support the destruction egg the rioters.? We look like a third world country now and Biden and his enablers are to blame. The liberals want power and they don’t give a damn about the country and the citizens.

        You voters better wake up. I’m talking to those of you who vote Democrat, who back Biden and who willfully stand aside and allow this destruction to happen to our country. Think of the country, think of the business owners who have worked years to build and business and think of the workers who depend on those job to pay their bills. Or would you rather see the destruction of our once great cities. Destroyed by mobs who don’t even care what you think or who you are.

      4. The Biden administration is so busy trying to make former President Trump look bad that they are doing so at the expense of our country and we have no one to blame but ourselves. We see it and we are not pushing hard enough to rid our govt. of those that would destroy us. No matter what the nationality if they are entering this country illegally then they are criminals and need to be stopped. The democratic liberals in this country are out to ruin us and we all know it. They have sold us out for their personal gain. We need to straighten out this past election..not to wait till 2021 or 2024 but we watched our election stolen before our very eyes on live TV. It needs to be rectified and we need those in power to do it.

    1. I Agree..
      Where the HELL is the LIBERAL MEDIA NOW.. ???
      THOSE “LIBERAL IDIOTS” KNOW how to get their WAGGING TONGUES ”
      Going TO SPREAD ” PURE LIES ”
      WHERE IS THE BIDEN /HARRIS DUO…???
      AS USUAL…MISSING IN ACTION… WHAT A “JOKE ” that Administration is !!!

      1. I agree The Biden/Harris Duo is the biggest joke!!! Neither one of them have let the american people know what the hecks going on. Harris was told to take over the border crisis, but she has not been to the border. Neither has Biden. Trump went to the border. I fear that Biden’s health is so bad that Harris is going to take over as president, and people we will then be screwed royally. MIA IS CORRECT!!! WHERE ARE THE DUO!???????

    2. The Border is out of control like no time in recorded history. We need to impeach Biden/Harris and reverse the stolen election or we will be a third world country tomorrow!

      1. I agree..They need to start back building THE WALL… IMPEACH BIDEN, HARRIS, PELOSI, SCHUMER and others that are in the White House that are ruining AMERICA

        1. EVERYONE has to put pressure on their elected officials in the House to get Biden out – but – will we be better off with Harris in the top seat?
          Concentrate more right now on the 2022 election and who gets in…

    3. Joyce – That says it all. You are 100% correct. If something (like putting Trump back in office like he was voted to be), we are sunk as the United
      States of American, Land that I Love. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE. God Bless America.

      .

    4. Democrats are trying to destroy America and they a doing a darn good job. This will not be resolved until a civil war is started—Large media and large corporations are on democrats side ——-the blacks are the ones who will be hurt by all that is going on—-the democrats are using the black people and they do not know it ( BLM & Antifa ) —-China will be the winner !

    5. Oh how I wish your wish would come true. We are losing our country day by day with these idiots Biden?Kamala in the White House by fraud. Those illegals being allowed into the country should not get anything from our government. Come legally and you are welcome but not otherwise. They should not be allowed to take jobs in our country period. Anyone who hires an illegal should pay a huge fine big enough to close their company down and put them out of business. PERIOD !!!!

    6. Totally agree!!! Biden and Harris don’t even know where the border is! They have accomplished NOTHING. Impeach both of them and Pelosi! Neither are fit to be our President! BRING PRESIDENT TRUMP BACK!

    7. AGREED. And WE speak for millions more that are afraid to speak up! There is nothing wrong with wanting your own country to continue being an English-speaking, well-functioning, God-fearing country. We were founded on Godly principles and are being brainwashed now by media and the liberal education ‘system’ giving us phony history and ideas. This must stop! My daughter (8th grade) had a substitute teacher the other day, a woman dressed like a man that introduced herself by teaching these children to call her by genderless pronouns and teaching them about it!!! You bet I contact the principal! Bring back President Trump and take down these little Soros-paid ‘antifa’ facists and blm racists! Enough is enough.

  2. Send the whole Democrat WH to spend the week there and make them serve the ones they brought up illegally.Also they must not have any security

    1. Sounds good to me also. Make it more than a week. How about 6 months or more. In the meantime, give us back our REAL PRESIDENT, Donald Trump!!!!!!

  3. This administration is a joke and NEEDS to be impeached. Endangering lives of American citizens is not upholding the OATH of office, this could actually be an act of Treason.

    1. Exactly right! This is the breaking of 🇺🇸& so many holes in the dike there’s not enough fingers to plug them-in fact the Dems don’t even think there’s problems… it’ll have to explode before they’ll do anything & that’s coming am sorry to say! Wish the gotsways would go directly to the politicians who don’t believe it’s happening!

    2. It is treason. Look at what Biden has been signing in his executive orders. He and his house and senate are taking away our freedoms. We do need President Trump back, he was making this country great again. People had jobs, could support their families,. Manufacturing was coming back. It makes me so mad when I need something and I can only find the junk made in China, can’t find anything made in the USA. We were becoming self sufficient. Biden comes into office via voter fraud and were back to getting more junk from China, buying oil from other countries, etc. and he is destroying the constitution and all our rights, that this country was founded on. It wasn’t perfect but there have been big improvements over the past 200 plus years. We don’t have to erase our history, but we do have to make sure we don’t make the same mistakes. I am talking about the citizens of this country. All nationalities and colors. Until the media, the democrats started planting the racist card into everything that happens we were a pretty united country. Lets unite once more and go after the people thst are taking over our democracy and turning it into communism.

      1. Every American – real American – needs to learn the Constitution right now – and teach it to your kids. It is VERY IMPORTANT that we all know our rights so that we can stand up for ourselves. God bless America! Vote TRUMP back into office to finish cleaning up the swamp. Now he knows exactly who to OUST.

  4. How many criminals have already come into the U.S.A?Biden is mentally unfit to serve as president.Since Kamala Harris can’t follow orders from Biden and admitted to using drugs has no place in the white house These 2 are not who we elected.We Elected Donald Trump.

  5. Joyce Fargen is absolutely right. I could not say it better. Let us all pray, Please Dear God and Father, your children plead. Put Trump, in the White House, now, along with supportive legislature. In the name of Christ Jesus, Amen.

  6. How did they ever elect a bunch of representatives that truly hate America. They were elected to protect and serve the people in America. I am not against immigration but it must be legal and orderly not open borders. If it were legal, states and landowners on the border should build the wall. If they could not afford it I bet if they opened a go fund me page there would be more than enough money donated by those who want secure borders.

  7. Why am I not surprised about this, Biden opened the flood gates and now he is trying to slow the illegals down what a joke

  8. Bring back the true president Donald J Trump and jail treasonous Joe Biden and take down Obama the puppet master

  9. Diane,
    This ALL makes me sick…..to think that our country is facing such a farce is so hard to internalize.
    Something MUST BE DONE……….every hour that goes by is placing us in a worse position.
    Why can’t someone in Washington, WAKE UP and act. I don’t care what “party” they
    belong to, this is a disaster.

  10. I agree with all of the above. How long will we put up with this travesty of justice while our country is being deliberately destroyed? I find it hard to believe that anyone voted for this chaos and destruction so why is it happening? Are we going to sit idly by while Obama and his cohorts take delight in the evil destruction of what was once the best country in the world?

    1. Yes, I also feel he broke the law and he put his hand on the Bible to uphold what? He is certainly making a big mess if things. We need him out of there quick and Trump back in. After all Trump did win, China got involved and rigged it for Biden.

  11. Progressive Democrats are the blame for the current and futures negative issues as a result of opened border policies! I worked in Public Health in California when in the 1980’s , a Republican President granted amnesty to illegals! California state standards have never been the same! California I lived
    in no longer exists: crime, cost of living, incompetent local and state governments! It is so sad! Once California had it all– good leadership and a society based on Merit!

  12. Biden , harris & 7/8 of Congress are intentionally making this country so dangerous with THEIR criminals , this country won’t be worth traveling in . I wanted to buy a RV & travel when I retired – but FORGET ALL THAT NOW , with these criminals in power ! Probably are not safe in our own homes !

  13. The last Governor of California that had his act together was Pete Wilson….NONE SINCE. The other problem is who are the people in Calfiornia that keep electing these incompetent people, Governor, Congressman/women, Senators etc. MAYBE THE BETTER QUESTION IS….ARE THE VOTING MACHINES IN CALIFORNIA RIGGED FOR THE DEMOCRATS……………………WOULD NOT SURPRISE ME ONE BIT. THE FOLLOWING NEED TO GO: NEWSOME, PELOSI, SCHIFF, FEINSTEIN, FOR SURE.

  14. buffoon Biden and side kick Kamala didn’t win an election they were installed by the complicit Democrat’s that’s the only thing that they can FIX are elections, every thing else they destroy.

  15. The present political party is either unable or doesn’t want to do anything about the illegal immigrants coming into this country !!! Some governors have already said no to housing illegals !!! What’s it going to take to get the present administration to understand the will of the people – those who pay their salary !!! Is it that they are getting foreign money or is it money inside the country that’s fueling this crisis ??? If I’m not mistaken it’s the will of the people that has precedence over this nightmare !!! What’s happened – are American citizens being shoved to the side to accommodate illegals ??? Who pays their bills ??? Who takes care of them ??? Has this now become a “pincushion” country that accepts anyone who wants a free ride ??? You’re the taxpayer and what are you getting but a higher tax bill ??? You pay the bill – don’t you have a say ???

  16. THIS IS WHAT YOU GET WHEN YOU DON’T WANT YOUR STATE TO FIGHT THE FRAUD ELECTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    AND YOU LET A BRAIN DEAD MAN IN THE W/H!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS, ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS, ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS, ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS, ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS, ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS. No matter what Joe Biden says, they are ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS.

  18. The only thing illegal aliens trying to cross the border is a BULLET! The only thing anyone who supports this “open borders” policy deserves is a NOOSE !

  19. I have read all of the above comments complaining about Bien, Harris, Congress, Democrats; but WHAT HAVE YOU DONE? Have you written to newspapers, called your congress members, spread information to friends, and whatever else possible? How will those I mentioned going to know what’s going on and what’s being done. It’s no wonder we’re is such trouble. Do you sit back, grumble and do nothing? That’s all the Democrats want. Were there any demonstrations after the Democrats stole the election?
    I am 91 years old and I’ve done my part in the past: I voted in every election, I marched on the state and federal capitols for important causes ,I called and wrote to my legislators, I’ve donated money, I wrote to newspapers (unfortunately none were published). I am so weary and It was all very discouraging but I will continue to do so until I am unable to do so any longer. My question is, “What will you DO for our great country before it’s too late?

  20. Yes we need President Trump yesterday, we all know this. Respect and love this great man, if anyone says anything negative about President Trump, don’t just put up with it, tell them in a nice way that they are nuts. And to leave America as soon as possible.

  21. BIDEN IS A FAILURE,FAILURE,FAILURE,FAILURE,FAILURE,FAILURE, X 1,000 TIMES MORE! He is the worst president ever. He should be ashamed of the people he is allowing to die because of his failure to act. All he want to do is change this country into a solicits country. He can’t even take care of himself how can he take care of our country?

  22. Well with all of the got away’s who have got through and into our country, I’m sure some of them have plans to try and destroy different areas of the country. Being in Texas, I’m not to worried about the terrorists who got through. Since once they get in they run as far from the boarder as they can. I’m sure they will be traveling up to all of those wonderful Democrat states to do their deeds. One morning when I wake up, I’m sure I’ll hear Good morning America Touting that a well known sight has been blown up or destroyed in some way. And old Joe will be lowering the flag once more to half staff, and giving one of his gloom and doom speeches and tell us what his father said in about it. And remind us once again to wash our hands wears 3 masks, and stay away from all people until further notice. Isn’t this a great country now. I have an Idea, where Trump had the button to press to get his diet Coke, they should rewire it to lower the flag to half Staff for Biden. I think that would be a good idea since he has to lower it at least 3 to 4 times a month.

  23. Biden, Harris, Pelosi, Waters (a real nut), Schiff, Nadler, Talib, Omar, Schumer, etc….are all traitors & are & have been exposed for their lies, corruption, deceitfulness, evil, etc…… They all are brainwashed or mind controlled via politics & money, along with dirty secrets they don’t want uncovered. A lot has been going on, behind the scenes by the patriots, to bring the walls to come crumbling down around these insane lunatics once & for all. It’s not only in this country, but globally. Get ready for a ride awakening!!!! Wake up & pay attention!!! God is with “we the people “.

  24. IMPEACH THEM NOW!!!!!!!!!! FOR VIOLATION OF THE OATH OF OFFICE !!!!! BETTER GET WITH IT WHOMEVER,CAUSE AMERICA IS GOIN DOWN THE TOILET FASTER THAN THE SPEED OF LIGHT !!!!!! THESE PEOPLE ARE NOT ANY WHERE NEAR LEADERSHIP QUALITY !!! THEY ARE JUST PLAIN POLITICAL MAFIA AND WHO KNOWS AT OUR LEVEL, WHERE THE HELL THEY ARE GETTING THIS POWER FROM????? THE NEWS MEDIA IS IN BED WITH THEM ALSO !!! SOMEONE WITHPURE POWER HAD BETTER IMPEACH THEM AND PRONTO!!!! WHAT THE HELL ARE THE REPUBS WAITING FOR???? PERHAPS WAITING FOR THE DAY WHEN THE DEMOCRATS HANG THEMSELVES WITH POWER LUST AND OUT RIGHT COMMUNISM / TOTALITARIAN RULE????? IMPEACH NOW AND TIE THEIR HANDS UP, LIKE THEY DID TO PRES. TRUMP!!!! JUST SAYIN….AMERICA IS SCREWED FOR ANYTHING CONSERVATIVE!!!1 THE WISE OLD ROOSTER AND HIS WISE OWL FRIEND

  25. Biden is a very poor example of a president, his vp Harris is not much better, since the administration does not feel it. has to follow the law then they should be impeached, of course I realize this will not happen as long as the democrats control both houses of Congress

  26. Sorry black folk on government benefits. Your benefits just went down so illegal immigrants can get their’s. The government can only take care of so many lazy A$$es.
