Border agents arrested over 400 illegal immigrants, including children, mainly from Central America, from Tuesday to Wednesday. This, after the agency announced that October apprehensions set a record for this year.
A group of 82 migrants were captured illegally crossing into the United States near the San Luis Port just before midnight on Tuesday. U.S. Customs and Border Protection said in a press release that most represented family units from Guatemala, with the exception of three individuals from El Salvador.
The youngest in the group was 2, the oldest 48.
Almost four hours later, a second group of 83 illegal aliens were seen trying to enter the same port of entry by digging beneath the wall. CBP said this group also consisted mostly of Guatemalans, with 14 people from El Salvador.
In total, Border Patrol agents with the Yuma Station apprehended 449 illegal immigrants by the end of Wednesday.
The large number of arrests comes just as the agency announced Friday that October apprehensions surpassed 50,000 – a new high this year.
The report stated that 50,975 people were apprehended on the southwest border in October, double the number from October last year and the highest monthly figure since 2014.
That figure included almost 5,000 unaccompanied minors.
President Trump issued an executive order Friday declaring that anyone entering the U.S. illegally from Mexico outside established posts would be ineligible for asylum – a measure that was almost immediately challenged with a lawsuit by the American Civil Liberties Union.
They’re pouring in like a plague of locusts that strip the land barren. Almost 500 in one day at one of our many ports, and that’s not counting the other crossing points or the caravans that are still headed in our direction.
In another Fox report, William La Jeunesse stated that after resting a couple of days in Mexico City, about 900 of them split off toward Tijuana and the rest are headed to Queretaro about 135 miles north of Mexico City. Many of them have chosen to stay in Mexico, but the others are still determined to keep moving north. There are more coming behind them and there’s so many that it’s been dubbed an exodus instead of mere caravans.
Meanwhile, President Trump is trying to uphold our laws, but has to fight with lefty judges and liberal organizations pushing to let them all in. We owe them nothing and if we keep allowing them into our country, it won’t be long until the US looks like the very countries they’re leaving.
