Border agents arrested over 400 illegal immigrants, including children, mainly from Central America, from Tuesday to Wednesday. This, after the agency announced that October apprehensions set a record for this year.
A group of 82 migrants were captured illegally crossing into the United States near the San Luis Port just before midnight on Tuesday. U.S. Customs and Border Protection said in a press release that most represented family units from Guatemala, with the exception of three individuals from El Salvador.
The youngest in the group was 2, the oldest 48.
Almost four hours later, a second group of 83 illegal aliens were seen trying to enter the same port of entry by digging beneath the wall. CBP said this group also consisted mostly of Guatemalans, with 14 people from El Salvador.
