U.S. Customs and Border Protection logged nearly 112,000 migrant encounters in January. Biden’s broken border policies continue to push agents to their limits —especially in the Del Rio Sector, one of the border’s busiest areas for illegal crossings.
According to a tweet over the weekend from Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Jason D. Owens, “Yesterday, agents from the Carrizo Springs Station, in coordination with our law enforcement partners, interdicted 5 smuggling attempts in less than 6 hours. The result: 10 criminal smugglers are in custody and more than 50 smuggled subjects will be identified and processed!
“This places a major operational strain on our resources due to the increased humanitarian needs, but our agents quickly adjust to meet the challenge,” the chief stated in another tweet earlier last week.
“In January, the last month of available numbers, the Del Rio Sector became the number one sector for apprehensions. Agents arrested 30,773 migrants in January — an increase of 176 percent over the previous year, according to information obtained from U.S. Customs and Border Protection,” Breitbart reports.
