The majority of recent border apprehensions are taking place in Texas according to a report by Daniel Friend and Hayden Sparks of The Texan. Since Joe Biden was installed as president, immigration has picked back up as many illegal aliens anticipate lax border enforcement policies coming from the current administration.
According to figures from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) there has been a steady rise in the number of apprehensions at the southwestern border. In particular, there has been a notable increase in the Del Rio border patrol sector.
In the month of January, the number of apprehensions at the border was 75,000, a slight increase from the 71,000 witnessed in December. The last year that border apprehensions were north of 70,000 was 2007, according to the data from the CBP.
Moreover, arrests in Texas sectors have increased significantly over the last decade and a half, which went from 20,000 in 2007 to 50,000 in January. Single
