U.S. Border Patrol: Over 3,900 People Rescued Trying to Illegally Cross into U.S., '460+' Have Been Children


Illegal aliens, especially those with children accompanying them, take major risks every time they attempt to illegally cross into the United States. Those risks aren’t just of the legal variety, but crossing the border illegally in some areas can pose risks to someone’s livelihood as well.

According to the United States Border Patrol Chief Twitter page (@USBPChief), nearly 4,000 people who have attempted to cross into the U.S. illegally, and not at a legal port of entry, have had to be rescued by Border Patrol agents — “460+ of them being children.”

Here’s the USBPChief’s tweet:

The tweet makes the excellent point that Border Patrol (USBP) doesn’t just want people to stop crossing the border illegally so that they can cut down on the practice illegal immigration, but it’s a safety issue as well.

The morning after posting the initial tweet with statistics of all the people USBP has had to rescue while illegally crossing the border, another tweet was released with statistics concerning the Del Rio Sector of the border in Texas.

Take a look:

That’s quite the increase in one year (619 percent), and this year still have five months left to go! Although, the numbers shouldn’t be all that surprising considering that there have been over 100,000 apprehensions of people attempting to illegally cross the Southwest border each month since March.

Do things the legal way. Not only will it save the time of an overworked court system, but it just might save people’s lives.
