Border Patrol officials told KVIA Memorial Day was “the busiest recent day of enforcement activity for the El Paso Sector Border Patrol agents during the ongoing influx” that’s expected to reach 1 million illegals across the border into the U.S. in fiscal year 2019.

More than 2,200 illegal immigrants were apprehended in that sector alone, which included several large groups of hundreds crossing at a time. About 1,850 of the apprehensions involved illegal immigrants who wandered across in the “geographic area between Executive Boulevard and Midway Street in El Paso,” officials told the news site.


“This fiscal year to date, the El Paso Sector has arrested over 130,000 illegal aliens, compared to over 16,000 during the same time last fiscal year,” Border Patrol said in a statement.


“All of the illegal aliens were taken into custody for processing to include initial medical screenings. They will remain in U.S. Border Patrol custody until they are processed accordingly.”...

In total, federal agents have apprehended or processed for asylum 628,194 illegal immigrants from October 1 through April 30, nearly matching the total of 683,178 in all of fiscal year 2018, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection statistics.

With five months still to go in fiscal year 2019, officials are not optimistic things will improve any time soon....
