Nearly 1,500 Illegal Aliens Caught Each Day Crossing the Border – New Facility Opened to Detain Them

The numbers of illegal immigrants continuing to surge across our Southern border is threatening to swamp our immigration enforcement capabilities.

MRC TV reports that in October alone, almost 50,000 illegal aliens were caught sneaking into the USA illegally (which doesn’t account for the tens of thousands more who weren’t caught).

In October alone, Customs and Border Protection apprehended 46,197 illegal aliens crossing into the United States unlawfully via the Southwest U.S. border, including 13,124 members of family units and another 6,754 unaccompanied children. In fact, the number of family unit members apprehended in the first month of FY2017 is already 118 percent higher than those who were caught in October of last year.

Averaged out, border patrol caught about 1,490 illegal aliens per day in October.

Immigration officials said they’re currently housing about 41,000 illegal aliens in detention centers that typically accommodate between 31,000 and 34,000 people.

The problem has become so acute that it has forced the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency to open a new facility in Texas to house detained illegal immigrants. The facility is only a stopgap measure put in place in an effort to treat the immigrants humanely while also preparing to deport them back to their home nations.

“In addition to securing our borders and enforcing our immigration laws, CBP is committed to treating all people in our facilities humanely,” said the El Paso Field Office Director Hector Mancha. “CBP’s officers and agents are rising to this challenge with professionalism while maintaining efficient border operations.”

The CPB also asked the media to deliver a message to the immigrants seeking to come to the USA – don’t.

“Our message to people thinking about crossing our borders illegally remains: Don’t risk your lives,” said El Paso Sector Chief Jeffrey Self. “Smugglers are not your friends. Don’t put your lives in their hands.”

Expect the flood of illegals to continue through January as many who have been considering sneaking in to the USA move to do so before President-elect Donald Trump takes office.

  1. If all Western countries would put their money into efforts to rehab the countries these people are coming from there would be no immigant crisis. Europe is under attack and cannot handle all the requests for asylum. Even if a migrant is denied asylum they have the right to appeal and the process can take up to 8 years to complete. Merkel really did a number on her EU compatriots. They’re fed up and ready to lynch her.

  2. Just how many more poor and illegal non English speakers can we absorb? If you look at our highways, our schools, our housing, our job situation, we have reached the limit and exceeded it. The democrats seem to think (as do the bleeding heart religionists) that this country is so big and wealthy that everybody in the world who makes their way here can stay. This is NOT FAIR to our job seekers, and our young graduates who want a career in this country. Citizens BORN here should have top priority and if there is anything left over then maybe some LEGAL immigrants can participate. No other country in the world accepts illegal entry and lets them stay like we do. STOP IT.

  3. These are not illegal aliens, They are invaders and we must ship them back wherever the hell they came from. Along with every member of their families. Babies born of illegals are themselves illegal and should be citizens of the mother so they get shipped back also. All this bleeding heart crap must stop. GOD PROTECT AMERICA AND DONALD TRUMP ALSO BECAUSE HE MAY BE OUR ONLY HOPE OF REMAINING AMERICA THE gREAT!
