Illegal Families, Minors BUSTED Crossing Border in Dramatic Numbers

on

The summer heat didn’t stop thousands of illegal minors and families risking their lives to illegally cross the U.S.-Mexico border.

This week, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials reported apprehensions of Family Unit Aliens (FMUA) and Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) rose by 37 and 20 percent respectively, showing the fourth straight month of dramatic increases for two categories of illegal immigration.

In August, Border Patrol agents arrested 2,994 UACs, which is up from 2,481 in July –an increase of 20 percent. In that same period, agents 4,645 FMUAs were arrested, up from 3,389 in July — an increase of 37 percent.

Leading the nine sectors that make up the southwest U.S./Mexico border is the Rio Grande Valley in South Texas, where agents in that sector alone arrested 1,296 UACs in August — up from 1,194 in July. Also in the same area, FMUA arrests increased from 2,098 in July to 2,815 in August — an increase of 34.18 percent increase.

Border patrol officials didn’t offer an explanation for the increases in arrests in a month, where normally during the summer months, arrests go on the decline.

Once President Donald Trump took office in January, the arrests of FMUAs fell from 9,300 in January to a low point of 1,118 in April. Since that time, the number of FMUA arrests rose by 315-percent to 4,645.

The apprehension of UACs fell from January’s 4,406 to 996 in April. Since that low point, the numbers steadily increased to 2,994, an increase of 201 percent.

So where are these illegals coming from?

The largest number of FMUAs arrests this year came from from El Salvador (23,439), home of the violent MS-13 criminal gang. Closely behind was Guatemala (22,750), Honduras (20,990), and Mexico (2,107).

FMUA arrests this fiscal year increased by five percent (71,445); however, UAC arrests fell by 29 percent. (53,993 in FY 2016, 38,495 in FY 2017).

The El Centro, El Paso, Rio Grande Valley, and San Diego Sectors all saw increases in the numbers of FMUA arrests, but only the El Centro and El Paso Sectors saw increases in UAC apprehensions in year-to-date comparisons.
