Border Patrol agents are apprehending an increasing number of migrant groups that include more than 100 people on the northern side of the U.S.-Mexico border, and recorded two more incidents this week.

The total number of people found in large caravans wandering through southern Arizona in recent weeks now stands at 1,200, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

Agents based at Ajo Station in south-central Arizona found a group of 164 people and another that included about 100 people in the desert just north of Mexican city Sonoyta Tuesday afternoon, a press release issued Thursday stated.

The article goes on to state the following:

Officials say the use of these 100- and 200-person groups has become the newest way smugglers are illegally moving people into the country.

A Border Patrol official based on the southwest border who asked to remain anonymous told the Washington Examiner last week the recent caravan trend is “concerning” because the agency does not see it discontinuing any time soon.

The official does not believe these massive groups were traveling together through Mexico, unlike the 1,000-person caravan of Central Americans that did so this spring. Instead, much smaller groups of migrants have traveled to Mexican border towns, and once there, smugglers formed a large group, then led them into the U.S. where they surrendered to federal law enforcement officers.

Customs and Border Patrol shared the following in a press release:

Agents encountered the first group of 164 persons Tuesday afternoon. The second group of 100 persons was discovered on Wednesday in the same general location where the first group was found.

Both groups consisted of family units and unaccompanied juveniles from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, ranging in age from 11 months to 59 years.

  1. Part of the fee to get smuggled into the US is probably a fee to be coached on exactly what to say to ALL the questions that will be asked either when they are caught or when they surrender themselves. The President HAS got to get tough again and STOP listening to everyone that wants cheap labor and to see him disappear when 2020 rolls around. If ANY of his businesses are using illegal alien cheap labor they need to get rid of the immediately and hire AMERICAN WORKERS!!!
