100,000 Illegal Immigrants Arrested At US Mexico Border; Most For February In 15 Years
Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas), whose Congressional district lies near the U.S.-Mexico border, warned that more than 10,000 illegal immigrants have been apprehended in a single border sector in Texas in about a week, with Reuters adding that a stunning 100,000 Illegals were detained at the border in February, the highest arrest total for the month of February since 2006.
“We are weeks, maybe even days, away from a crisis on the southern border. Inaction is simply not an option,” the Texas Democrat said in a news release on Thursday.
“Our country is currently unprepared to handle a surge in migrants in the middle of the pandemic.”
