Chart of the Day: Illegal Immigration Soars Under the Biden Administration

Soaring illegal immigration during Biden’s first year in office drives US foreign-born population to 46.6 million – the largest number EVER recorded, as the country welcomes 1.6m new people in 12 months. Learn more here.

  • Analysis of US census data by the Center for Immigration Studies found there are currently 46.6 million legal and illegal foreign-born immigrants in the nation.
  • The number is up 1.7 million from last year and 2.2 million from 2020.
  • It is the largest ever recorded in any government survey or decennial census.
  • The studies’ authors attributed the increase to policies implemented by Biden that have allowed illegal immigrants to cross the U.S.-Mexico border in droves.
  • The study further warns that the number is set to rise in the coming years if things do not change.

Hispanic immigrants accounted for roughly 70 percent – or 1.1 million – of the increase, suggesting that a large share of the sudden growth was spurred by illegal immigration, with the federal government and experts previously estimating that roughly 75 percent of illegal immigrants are of Hispanic descent.

The chart below shows border crossings each month over the last few years. The newly-released January 2022 figures have yet to be added to the chart and line graph. What we can see is that in 2021 border encounters have soared and for 2022 the rate has increased even more.

Border Encounter 2019 to 2022

Immigration itself is not necessarily a bad thing as long it is legal and limited to ensure the sending and receiving countries are not destabilized. But under the Biden administration, this does not seem to be the case – Biden is promoting a virtually open border policy.

America under Biden is undergoing the biggest mass human migration experiment in its recent history. No doubt that this experiment will have untold results for society and the economy.

Born down on the farm in America's Midwest, my early life was spent climbing the ladder via a long career in information technology. Starting as a technician, and after earning a degree going to night school, I eventually found a place working at ATT Bell Laboratories as a software engineer.

Later moving into management and then a long stint in a major management consulting firm working with major banking, telecommunications, and retail companies. Working in various states in America, I also spent considerable time living and working in several European countries - currently expat in France. As a side career, I was heavily involved in real estate development and an avid futures trader. This experience can give one a unique view of the world.

The storm clouds of dark change are near. Today America is at a crossroads. Will it maintain its prowess as a national leader in the free modern advancing world, or will it backtrack in the abyss of the envy identity politics of tyrannical socialism, and the loss of individual freedoms. The 2020 election may have decided this. Join the Right Wire Report team and make a stand.
