Customs and Border Protection (CBP) on Friday said it had seen a “substantial increase” in fentanyl seizures at the southern border in January, just as it confirmed that there were 153,941 migrant encounters last month.

CBP’s monthly operational update confirmed Fox News’ reporting on Wednesday that there had been 153,941 encounters in what is typically a slow month for border crossers. The number is nearly double the 78,414 migrant encounters in Jan 2021, and more than quadruple the 36,585 in Jan 2020.

Of those encountered last month, 73% were single adults, and 51% of the total number of migrants were expelled via Title 42 public health protections put in place by the Trump administration and continued to an extent by the Biden administration. Of those, 62% of single adults were expelled under Title 42 and 26% of family units were returned.
