Nearly 600,000 illegal aliens will successfully enter the United States through the southern border this year, according to projections by Princeton Policy Advisors.
 
In August, Border Patrol agents encountered more than 50,600 border crossers and illegal aliens — a 62 percent drop compared to May’s peak illegal immigration levels when nearly 133,000 border crossers and illegal aliens were apprehended.
 
Researcher Steven Kopits projects that for Calendar Year 2019, about 843,000 border crossers and illegal aliens will have been apprehended by Border Patrol agents, including 309,000 child migrants and nearly 300,000 adult border crossers who arrive alone.
 
This projection indicates that illegal immigration for this year is set to be more than double the level of illegal immigration seen in Fiscal Year 2018 and nearly three times the level of Fiscal Year 2017 totals.
 
Already, illegal immigration at the U.S.-Mexico border this year has reached a level — with more than 811,000 border crossers and illegal aliens being apprehended since October 2018 — that has not been experienced since Fiscal Year 2008 when the Obama administration saw more than 705,000 apprehensions at the border....
