Over 172,000 migrants, most in nearly 2 decades, stopped at southern border in March
Immigration authorities arrested or detained more than 172,000 migrants across the southwest border last month, according to administration officials.

And yet, we are still being told that there simply is no crisis at the border.

Weird, huh?

Immigration authorities arrested or detained more than 172,000 migrants at the southwest border last month, according to administration officials.

The total number of Border Patrol apprehensions was the largest in a month since the early 2000s. The vast majority were taken into custody between U.S. ports of entry, while about 4,000 were stopped by port officials.

A growing majority of family members were allowed to stay in the U.S. for longer during processing while about a third were quickly "expelled" under Trump administration-era public health regulations known as Title 42, according to officials. Sixty percent of those encountered -- or about 103,000 people -- were rapidly removed under Title 42.

As the rapid expulsions continue for older families, Customs and Border Protection has seen some cases of "self separation," according to the officials, where some families who are removed are sending their children on their own.

The number of unaccompanied children taken into custody roughly doubled from February to March, accounting for about 18,890 individuals, according to officials.

The numbers have continued to rise in early April. There was a significant spike in the number of unaccompanied minors taken into CBP custody on Tuesday, according to the latest Homeland Security stats. The number of kids in CBP custody stayed virtually the same from the day before while the number placed in HHS facilities grew by about 1,000.

There are now more than 20,200 unaccompanied minors in U.S. custody, according to the two agencies.

While the administration remains strained by the high numbers, it's also becoming more capable of handling them as the Department of Health and Human Services brings a growing number of large, temporary shelters online. The average number of children transferred out of CBP custody each day has nearly doubled from 276 at the end of February to 507 at the end of March.

There's broad consensus among immigration enforcement authorities that Border Patrol stations, which often resemble small-town jails, are not fit nor equipped to handle children.

HHS has also worked with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to increase shelter space in existing facilities by about 1,500 by modifying COVID-19 mitigation measures to free up space that was previously left empty for social distancing. The administration has also brought in refugee resettlement and citizenship and immigration services staff to initiate the case management process of interviewing children and locating sponsors more quickly.

One official underscored the initial lack of preparedness at HHS and again laid blame on the prior administration.

"We are continuing to dig out of a hole that was left by the previous administration," the official said.

Additionally, the officials supported several requests from Congress, including more authority to crack down on smugglers and criminal trafficking organizations, more technology at the border, infrastructure at ports of entry to hold asylum seekers and more asylum officers and immigration judges. They also implemented methods to speed up legal immigration.

"Nobody should have the expectation this is going to be solved overnight after four years of sort of potentially undermining the system," one official said.

Ha...not a single word about ‘terrorists’ in your seeded article.

So okay to interject a speculative conflation while issuing a ‘warning’ in response. 

Duly noted and duly dismissed.

Not a thing speculative, they have caught some people on the border who are on the list. Your journey to Jan 6 is something totally different, of course.

Those are the ones they caught. How many more thousands made it in to the country that they didn't catch?

If you're observing that please tell the CBP where those 344,000 are crossing. That would be super helpful !

According to Canada's version of RWNJs, those 344,000 are using Roxham Road. Canada's RWNJ press The Rebel even sent a news crew complete with a vivacious news lady to document the kerfuffle ... alas all they managed to film was an elderly farm lady fretting about her sheep and a hole in the fence caused by ambitious news patriots.

Read all of your words, but to be honest, I don't put a lot of stock into someone's words when they don't seem capable of even acknowledging there is a problem.

CBP and local Sheriffs believe that number is approximately 1000 daily, in one sector.

So Trump is responsible for Biden and the Democrats ringing the dinner bell since the Democratic primaries and not being prepared for the influx of illegal immigrants? Sounds like a government employee has rampant TDS. Time for China Joe and the Democrats to take responsibility for the disaster of their making. It is up to them to fix the problem they caused; and no, open borders is not the answer.

And Biden hasn't even nominated anyone for CBP Commissioner, or anyone to head up the Department of Health and Human Services’ Administration for Children and Families, or permanent leaders for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

Old Joe is really on top of things!

It's not a crises, but the Biden admin can invoke emergency powers to bypass bidding and award a no bid 87 million contract to a company run by a Biden backer to house migrant families.

but there's no crises.

I suspect that the localities and local law enforcement trying to deal with the continual influx of illegal aliens will call it a crisis.   Even going so far as to have a Texas Democrat congressman having to publicly post pictures of the abhorrent conditions the Biden administration is using to house and abuse the children.   

If anyone here abused children as thew Biden administration is currently doing, they would have the children removed and they would be prosecuted for child abuse.  Where is the United States Attorney General Merrick B. Garland?
