  •  Rio Grande Valley ► 2019 border apprehensions surpass all of 2018
    Posted: 23 Apr 2019 01:05 PM PDT


    DAILYKENN.com --The number of illegal aliens accosted by U.S. Border Patrol agents in the Rio Grande Valley has already surpassed to total number of apprehensions in 2018. 


    Some of the illegal aliens voluntarily turned themselves in to authorities so they may apply for asylum.

    Less than seven months into the fiscal year, the number of undocumented immigrants who have been apprehended or turned themselves in to U.S. Border Patrol agents in the Rio Grande Valley has already surpassed last year’s total, the agency said Monday.

    From October, when the federal government’s fiscal year began, through Sunday, more than 164,000 migrants have been apprehended in the sector, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection. During the entire 2018 fiscal year, the sector reported 162,262 apprehensions.

    The increase is the result of an ongoing surge of migrants, most of them from Central America, who are crossing the border to seek asylum. The 2019 total for the Rio Grande Valley includes 15,310 unaccompanied minors apprehended from October through March — compared to 23,760 during the entire 2018 fiscal year — and 79,000 people who were traveling in families during the same time frame, which has already surpassed the 63,280 family members apprehended in 2018 (April figures were not immediately available).

    The Border Patrol has reported similar increases along the entire southwest border.
