Latest Border Patrol numbers show massive spike in border encounters in March

Per Jamie Dupree:

Latest Border Patrol numbers show the very large spike in March along the border with Mexico. ‘Border encounters’ were running in the 70,000 range in October-January, then jumped in February, and went way up in March.

Here are the Border Patrol stats for unaccompanied minors. Same kind of numbers. About the same in Oct-Jan, then up February, and doubled in March.

The 172,000+ border encounters in March for Biden eclipses the most active month on the border during the Trump Administration, which came in April and May of 2019, going over 144,000.
