The number of migrants that Border Patrol agents caught illegally entering the U.S. from Mexico between official ports of entry dropped in June following months of record-high levels since President Trump took office a year and a half ago, according to a report published Sunday evening.
A little more than 34,000 people were arrested at the border by agents during the month of June, down about 6,000 arrests from 40,000 in May, according to information a government official gave the Associated Press. This figure does not include the number of people who arrived at ports of entry.
The article goes on to state the following:
A senior CBP official would not confirm the validity of the numbers.
“As a matter of policy, CBP releases the apprehension and inadmissible numbers between the 6th and 8th of the following month to ensure accuracy and consistency,” U.S. Customs and Border Protection Assistant Commissioner for Public Affairs Andrew Meehan said in an email. “CBP does not comment on unofficial numbers.”
