REPORT! Over 1k migrants apprehended crossing U.S border per day

CAMPO, CA - JULY 30: US Border Patrol agents carry out special operations near the US-Mexico border fence following the first fatal shooting of a US Border Patrol agent in more than a decade on July 30, 2009 near the rural town of Campo, some 60 miles east of San Diego, California. 30-year-old agent Robert Rosas was killed on July 23 when he tracked a suspicious group of people alone in remote brushy hills north of the border in this region. Violence has been escalating in Mexico with fights between well-armed drug cartels and the army becoming common since Mexican President Felipe Calderon began his army-backed war on the cartels. Since the conflict began in late 2006, 12,800 people have been killed. Mexican officials charge that guns which are easily smuggled in from the US have flooded into Mexico where gun laws are strict.

Over 1,000 migrants are apprehended every day trying to illegally enter the country.


Border Patrol agents apprehended an average of nearly 1,100 migrants along the U.S-Mexico Border every day in the past fiscal year. During the most recent month, that number jumped to nearly 1,400.

During Fiscal Year 2018 (which ended on September 30), U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the nine southwest border sectors apprehended an average of nearly 1,100 migrants per day. Of those, approximately 430 were listed as unaccompanied minors or family units, according to the Fiscal Year 2018 Southwest Border Migration Report from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

Border Patrol agents apprehended 396,579 illegal immigrants who crossed the border between ports of entry during the most recent fiscal year. This represents an average of 1,087 per day. Included in that number were 50,036 Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) — 137 per day — and 107,212 Family Unit Aliens (FMUA) — 293.73 per day — officials reported.

It is unclear how many aren’t apprehended and enter the country illegally but a recent study found that there are 22 Million illegal aliens currently living in America.
