Border apprehensions spike in February

The Hill


The southwest border saw a significant jump last month in apprehensions and denials of people attempting to enter the United States, according to data released Tuesday.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data shows that 66,450 people were apprehended after crossing the border between ports of entry in February, compared to 47,986 the previous month.

A further 9,653 people were turned away at ports by U.S. border agents last month, a slight decrease from the 10,309 turned away in January.

The sharp increase in apprehensions was led by a continuing upward trend in crossings by family units, according to figures released by the administration.

Of the 66,450 people apprehended in February, 36,174 were traveling as family units composed of adults and children traveling together and 6,825 were unaccompanied children.

In January, border authorities apprehended 24,189 people in family units and 5,119 unaccompanied children.

CBP officials said in a statement that the family units and unaccompanied children apprehended at the border are predominantly Central American.
