Biden breaks border history with the highest EVER crossings in a month: ... trends now

More than 300,000 migrants attempted to cross into the United States in August, surpassing the national record, as the White House says border number ebb and flow.

Last month 304,162 were apprehended by U.S. Border Patrol, exceeding the previous record of 302,412 in December. 

The figure is shocking because numbers usually drop during summertime months because of the excessive heat. 

The numbers give Republican 2024 hopeful further ammunition to hit President Joe Biden with, as he runs for reelection and the administration downplays the problem. 

The Washington Examiner first reported the total weeks ago, citing CBP sources. 

Shocking overnight footage showed dozens of migrants pouring into Eagle Pass, Texas - a town of just 29,000 people that has seen over 11,500 refugees flood through in the last 10 days

This month the issue appears to be just as bad as shocking footage shows hundreds more migrants flooding over the southern border after leaving a cross-country cargo train known as 'The Beast.'

Border officials have been left scrambling after being overwhelmed by refugees in recent weeks, with the small town of Eagle Pass, Texas becoming an epicenter of the crisis as over 11,500 people have flocked through in the last 10 days.

Many have traveled to the border on Mexico's largest railroad network, known as 'The Beast', which has sparked further controversy after a number of deaths and injuries were reported from asylum seekers filling the vessel to the brim.

On Friday, footage shared to X - formerly Twitter - by journalist Juan Mendoza Diaz showed hundreds of people marching into Eagle Pass in the early hours of the morning under torchlight.

As the camera panned over the migrants, many smiled and waved - and Diaz said they told him they arrived by the train despite Mexico officials announcing the partial halting of 'The Beast' this week due to the spate of problems.  

The crisis escalated overnight Friday as at least three cases of tuberculosis were reported among migrants in El Paso, Texas - almost 500 miles away from Eagle Pass.

The reported admission from the migrants that they made their way to Texas on a train comes after 'The Beast' was supposedly partially shut down after half-a-dozen people dead or were injured on the freight. 

Stunning images show the huge train crammed full of migrants in recent weeks. Hundreds were seen cheering as they clung to the sides of the train this week as they departed the Mexican city of Zacatecas as it made its way north on the 750-mile journey to the border. 

Many of the refugees smiled and waved as the camera panned over them in the early hours of Friday morning, as they joined tens of thousands pouring over the border in recent weeks

On Monday, at least 8,000 illegal migrants were apprehended on the border.  

As the relentless wave of migrants continue to pour into the US, a tense back and forth has erupted between the Biden administration and Texas officials criticizing the president for a lack of action. 

Rolando Salinas, the mayor of Eagle Pass, slammed Biden on Thursday after the influx devasted his town of just 29,000, seeing a surge in 'robberies and violence' since the refugees hit the community. 

Over 11,500 migrants have flooded the town in the last 10 days, a number that is set to continue soaring as the crisis shows no signs of slowing down. 

The worsening situation has led to stunning images of migrants lined up waiting to be processed, while Texas border agents resorted to using razor wire to bring the surge down. 

Families were seen in eyebrow-raising images being helped through the razor wire in recent days, with many having traversed difficult terrain and waded through the Rio Grande River in hopes of making their way to the US.
