Border Patrol: 900 Alien Families Per Day Detained In Texas In February
Border Patrol officials are sounding the alarm over the rising number of migrant family units trying to illegally cross into the U.S.
According to reports from agents in the El Paso and Rio Grande sectors Monday, roughly 900 migrant families were detained everyday last month. that’s a 579-percent increase from just 132 families per day during the same period last year..
Officials said while some migrant families seek to take advantage of the U.S. immigration system themselves, others are trafficked across the border.
