Remember how just last week, I reported that a record 10,000 illegal aliens had been apprehended in the past 24 hours alone? Yeah, that benchmark's already been smashed to bits.

On Monday, border agents confirmed that 11,000 illegal aliens - a new high, again - had been nabbed in the past day, as video from the border shows a seemingly never-ending stream of migrants - most of them young men - risking the river and swarming into the United States in droves.

This month is set to shatter previous records for migrants caught coming across the Southwest U.S. border illegally. In response to the overwhelming number of migrants flooding into his town, Eagle Pass Mayor Rolando Salinas, who is a Democrat, declared a state of emergency last week, saying his town can’t sustain this continued surge.

On top of logistical strains and a massive financial burden, the deluge of migrants has also brought tragedy, a side effect of open borers that doesn’t appear to be going away anytime soon. According to local reports, border agents last Wednesday recovered the body of a 3-year-old boy who drowned trying to cross the river with his family, just north of the floating barriers near Eagle Pass. One day later, the corpse of a middle-aged man was pulled from the river in the same area. Fox News’ Bill Melugin reports that the body of a 10-year-old child who’d drowned in the river was recovered in the same place the week before.

Meanwhile, President Joe Biden has reportedly sent another 800 National Guardsmen to the border - not to turn back migrants, but to help process them so border agents can go back to directing traffic and fishing bodies out of the river.
