Over 2 million migrants apprehended at U.S. border since August 2021, officials say ctm magazine

U.S. Customs and Border Protection has apprehended 2.2 million migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border since August of 2021, the agency said. This comes as several Republican governors have been sending thousands of migrants to Democratically-controlled states and cities in protest of current border policies. CBS News immigration reporter Camilo Montoya-Galvez discusses the situation.

    MARTHA'S Vineyard VRBO has hundreds of listings, look it up! The rich white supremist liberals are bigots, class warfare snobs! They weren't there to clean toilets, Democrats: they gotta go

  • Blake S. on September 20, 2022

    I'm sorry, but I am tired of hearing about ILLEGAL immigrants and how hard they have it living on the streets and should be supported by U.S. citizens. What about the millions of homeless U.S. citizens already on our streets? Where is their help? Smh

  • optimaltrain on September 20, 2022

    This story is a lie, vice president Rug Burns said the border is secure.

  • David lee Rendon on September 20, 2022

    But, the places that actually want them and volunteered to help them, only want Texas to have them.

  • Joe on September 20, 2022

    Wish I was a migrant

  • Joe on September 20, 2022

    “Do u think you would die?”
    Cut the tape

  • Michael Nicholson on September 20, 2022

    We already have homeless families, US citizens on waiting lists to live in roach invested government homes. As a taxpayer, I don’t approve.

  • Richard Cabesa on September 20, 2022

    vote out democrats

  • Jay Beezy on September 20, 2022

    They aren't migrants. Illegal immigrants. Call it what it is . Illegal

  • hasinur rahman on September 20, 2022

    Liberal: This is all because of Putin and Trump. Meanwhile Kamala who was supposed to handle the border issue is now in Chicago, talking about abortion. Kamala for President! You can do it US!

    America is pretty much finished and in about 20 years there will be a lot of anger from people realizing they were lied to and their kindness abused. These people coming here “searching for a better life” don’t realize them and everyone like them are the problem. The less of them there are in a country the better it is and once you put too many of them in it it’s over. Eventually the scale tips and it turns into the place they came from. There’s no way around it. Do they think there’s magic soil in America and to do good they just need to set foot on it? It’s not magic soil that makes western countries good, it’s the demographics. It’s white people. Race isn’t skin deep and not everyone are the same and that lie that boomers made up has costs us everything. I hope I’m alive for when people realize they’ve been duped.

    They all get over one way or the other as I see 100s sneak in often.

  • Bill Labrie on September 20, 2022

    It would be nice if we in border states can send you a million of them each year .biden should be there to welcome them and maybe when the huge convoy comes he will be there

  • Ms Something on September 20, 2022

    Oh dear God, how many got through without being "processed"? 8 million??

  • KB on September 20, 2022

    It's pretty simple. The US government has been working for decades, and is finally deconstructing the USA from within. Get ready for whatever is coming.

  • Rory Gay on September 20, 2022

    Ship the immigrants to marolargo; lots of room there.

  • G Diaz on September 20, 2022

    2 million processed but Biden panics when just 50 arrive in Martha's vineyard

  • Den & Dennis on September 20, 2022

    Coming to America 🇺🇸

    Congratulations CBS, you decided to talk about the southern open border.
    "What's driving up these numbers" you asked your guest. The main drive behind this is Biden's open border policy causing this historical migrant invasion. Biden should also be investigated for flying these illegal aliens to cities around the country.

  • Slave on September 20, 2022

    Apprehended and given welfare while we suffer.

  • Apollo Media on September 20, 2022

    If we assume we have 50 states, every state should take 40,000 people. And that is only for illegals from Aug 2021. In reality I think every state should take 100,000. It is not fair for southern states to house them, spend tax money on social services, and infrastructure.

  • Edwin b on September 20, 2022

    How are these Migrants going to go Find Affordable housing when the high cost of renting a One-Bedroom apartment is $2200 or more

  • Edwin b on September 20, 2022

    We have a Homeless and Housing Crisis In This Country that the government can't resolve, but the Biden Administration wants to help Migrants instead of the homeless and poor people who have been waiting for years to receive affordable housing

  • Jordan Romano on September 20, 2022

    Seems the democrats are replacing Americans/Mexicans with more compliant and ignorant people. No offense, they are the kind of yes people that are going to change the USA in a bad way !!!

  • Rubbingisracing on September 20, 2022

    Oh the borders are wide open remember

  • Fat Albert on September 20, 2022

    This is insane. The illegals are given money, food, medicines, clothes, free transportation. Biden and the Democrats are doing nothing to stop this. If a hundred thousand US citizens rushed to the Border then what is the government going to do? Are they going to shoot US citizens? That would instigate a war! But the government is protecting these millions of people. Americans, It's time to literally fight back!

  • J A on September 20, 2022

    Never a news story about our border cities and the crime and the death. Only about how the liberals can fight back and how we can support millions of migrants each yr

  • 15n20 on September 20, 2022

    American citizens: If you don't stop this yourselves then the country is lost. Don't depend on the government.

  • 15n20 on September 20, 2022

    This is precisely why Biden (Democrats) will lose in 2024.

  • Gary P on September 20, 2022

    You can't have thousands of people per day crossing into any country and not have negative consequences as a result. We are already on a verge of an economic disaster, high interest rates, high gas prices, stock market dropping every month, record inflation. And now we have open borders to anyone that wants to come across. America is finished.

  • Lee Smith on September 20, 2022

    What about a democratic president who child trafficked illegal aliens under the cover of darkness to locations not prepared for them? What? CBS? No comment? didn't think so.

  • Hlysnan on September 20, 2022

    Anarchy. No law, no borders, no leadership from Washington.

  • Jan Coley on September 20, 2022

    That Sherriff doesn't speak for the rest of Texas. Possibly the only one. Bet he is a Biden Democrat.

  • Steelflex Jeff on September 20, 2022

    They’re gonna create hundreds of thousands of anchor children as well. RIP america
