About 650,000 illegal immigrants have entered the United States to stay.

The attack on America’s southern border has reached a level never before seen, according to a new report.

Customs and Border Protection data obtained by The Washington Post shows that 1.7 million people were detained along the border during the federal 2021 fiscal year, which ended Sept. 30, meaning arrests by Border Patrol agents hit their highest level ever recorded, according to the report.

This data includes the final 3.5 months of the Trump administration.

Since President Joe Biden took office, 1.3 million illegal immigrants were detained, the report said.

According to Border Patrol data, that would mean that in the first 8.5 months of the Biden administration, more illegal immigrants were detained than in the final two full years of the Trump administration.

In the final full year when former President Donald Trump was in office, 405,036 illegal immigrants were arrested.

The Post noted that President Joe Biden had said one of his goals as president was to avoid having “2 million people on our border.”

Although Biden gave Vice President Kamala Harris the job of dealing with root causes of illegal immigration from Central American countries, the data implies that any effort Harris makes would miss the real target.

The 2021 data, according to the Post, shows that of those detained, 608,000 were Mexican nationals.

A catch-all group that included “Haitians, Venezuelans, Ecuadorans, Cubans, Brazilians” and others made up 367,000 of the total arrests.

Then came Honduras, 309,000; Guatemala, 279,000; and El Salvador, 96,000.

The report said that 61 percent of those entering illegally were expelled, which would mean about 650,000 illegal immigrants have entered the country to stay.

On Tuesday, Chris Magnus, the police chief from Tucson, Arizona, who has been nominated to run Customs and Border Protection, said the numbers represented a “significant challenge” and “the numbers are very high.”
