El Paso Border Patrol Agents apprehend over 400 migrants in Five Minutes

Early Tuesday morning, U.S. Border Patrol agents apprehended two large groups of immigrants who entered the U.S. illegally.

These groups, like many others before, both groups are comprised primarily of Central American families and unaccompanied juveniles.   

According to Border Patrol officials, agents encountered the first group of 194 migrants at approximately 2:45 a.mThe group was encountered by agents at the border wall just west of Bowie High School

Just five minutes later at 2:50 A.M., agents working farther west encountered a second group of 252 people, who crossed illegally near Downtown El Paso

In all, agents had already taken over 430 people into custody within the first three hours of March 19th.

“In the last 30 days, the U.S. Border Patrol El Paso Sector is averaging 570 apprehensions a day, with 90 percent of those being in the El Paso Metropolitan Area,” Fidel O. Baca, with the Border Patrol shared.

These numbers continue to stretch the resources available to the U.S. Border Patrol to deal with this influx and the challenges that come with it.”

  1. Has anyone investigated the extreme cases of illness in our community? Do you think perhaps it had something to do with the massive influx of people coming in that may be carrying illnesses we aren’t used to. I find it concerning how many children are getting extreme fevers and cannot be identified.

  2. And the lunatic leftist fringe says that it is a manufactured crisis!
