Another Record-Breaking Number Of Illegal Immigrants Caught Trying To Cross The Border In April


Another record-breaking number of illegal immigrants were arrested trying to cross the Southwest border last month.

Preliminary data obtained by The Washington Post’s Nick Miroff shows that U.S. Customs and Border Protection made approximately 234,000 arrests of illegal border-crossers in April. That’s up nearly 13,000 from the 221,303 southwest border apprehensions recorded in March, marking back-to-back record-breaking months. Prior to March, the last time southwest border arrests surpassed 220,000 was March of 2000.

Already, border officials have logged at least one million arrests just six months into the 2022 fiscal year, putting them on track to record more than 2 million apprehensions by the end of the fiscal year.
