Mexicans have gotten the message: Bring the family!
According to the Washington Examiner:
SAN ANTONIO, Texas — U.S. Border Patrol agents on the Southwest border took more people into custody Monday than in any day in the past 10 years, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
Federal law enforcement agents made more than 3,700 apprehensions across California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas on Monday. A senior Border Patrol official told the Washington Examiner on Tuesday 1,100 of those apprehensions took place in Eagle Pass, Texas, which is part of the Del Rio Sector.
CBP Chief Operating Officer John Sanders told attendees of the Border Security Expo this week a major reason for the recent surge in border apprehensions is due to large numbers of people illegally crossing together, rather than a handful at a time.
