Over 1.9 million people illegally entered Texas in fiscal 2023

As Democratic governors and mayors urge President Joe Biden to do more as several thousand illegal foreign nationals flood their communities from the southern border, none have experienced even a fraction of the nearly two million people who illegally entered Texas in 12 months.

In fiscal 2023, over 1.9 million people illegally entered Texas, according to official U.S. Customs and Border Protection data and preliminary gotaway data exclusively obtained by The Center Square.

Texas’ over 1.9 million crossings accounts for 48.75% of the nearly 4 million illegal border crossers reported nationwide in fiscal 2023.

At least 1,486,178 people were apprehended by federal agents in Texas, according to official CBP data, including Border Patrol and Office of Field Operations (OFO) data.
