750 Illegal Aliens Caught In Yuma Over ONE Weekend As Family Group Crossings Surge 230%

Border agents in the Yuma sector of the U.S.-Mexico border – that’s just one sector, by the way, not the whole Southwest border by a long shot – apprehended nearly 750 illegal aliens last weekend alone, including more than 130 who needed medical attention for pregnancies and illnesses including scabies and chicken pox.

Border agents reported the vast majority of the aliens they caught were members of family groups who’d crossed the border in places where there are no pedestrian walls, only vehicle barriers that can be easily walked through on foot.  About 87 percent were from Guatemala, with the rest hailing from Honduras, El Salvador, Ecuador and Mexico.

CBP also reported having to treat 137 of the migrants for medical conditions including “pregnancy complications, lacerations, blisters, respiratory issues, chicken pox, lice and scabies.” Some were treated on-site by medically certified agents while others had to be transported to local hospitals, courtesy of the American taxpayer.

While it certainly marks a busy weekend for the Yuma border agents, the swarm of illegal alien families crossing in droves comes as no surprise. In December, a top CBP official told Congress that border agents have caught more than 3,000 illegal aliens per day coming across the Southwest U.S. border between ports of entry, most of whom were members of family groups or unaccompanied minors.

CBP reports that since the start of the fiscal year on Oct.1, the Yuma Sector alone has seen a 230 percent increase in family unit apprehensions and a 36 percent increase in unaccompanied alien children apprehensions compared to the same time frame last year.
