The number detained in January was 124,220, on par with the number detained in recent Januaries, but less than half the number detained in December.

January and February have seen the fewest migrants in recent years, but given that December was just nuts, there is plenty of instability in the world, and people may fear that it will get harder based on all the political attention this issue is getting, will it go up in February or down?

It has gotten so much more difficult to cross the border in the last 20 years. But still, people come, feeling the hazards (and the smugglers) are their only hope.

One thing I’ve learned through recent news cycles is that smugglers use the statements of Biden and Trump in their marketing materials.

What I don’t know is how the current rhetoric is played.

Past 20 years yes, but the past 4 it's gotten much easier.
