Americans are signaling to President Joe Biden that they may not be willing again to overlook his border bungling in the next election amid a new report that October saw another record level of illegal crossings.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection late Monday said it stopped 230,678 migrants at the border, up 1.4% from 227,547 in September and the highest since May.
A new Election Day exit poll conducted for the Federation for American Immigration Reform showed that the issue was a vote driver this week, and is likely to become even more of one if the White House continues to let the migrant crisis stand.
“Voters want the border brought under control, the wall built, and our nation’s immigration laws enforced,” said FAIR President Dan Stein.
