Thousands of Africans are are now reportedly flying to Central America with the intention of illegally entering the United States through the southern frontier.
President Joe Biden has presided over an unprecedented influx of unauthorized immigrants into the United States over the past year.
58,462 Africans were apprehended at the southern border in fiscal year 2023, according to government data cited by The Times on Friday.
This represents an increase from the 13,406 reported in 2022.
In addition to over 4,000 from Angola and Guinea, the 2023 figures comprise 15,263 from Mauritania and 13,526 from Senegal.
A considerable number of these Africans are commencing their journey from Nicaragua to Central America via Mexico, where they arrive by air.
Reportedly, some European nations have increased their border security measures, which has contributed to the migration of Africans.
Numerous migrants are attempting to evade destitution; therefore, it is unclear how precisely each of them finances their transatlantic journeys.
Others, however, assert that they have sold small enterprises rather than borrowing money from friends.
A significant number of unauthorized immigrants are granted entry into the United States upon reaching the southern border.
