The border patrol says they have now arrested over 1,000 African migrants at our southern border.
U.S. Customs and Border Patrol revealed in a press release: “U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the Del Rio Sector have arrested over 1,100 people from countries in Africa since May 30.”
Would someone explain how African migrants ended up in Mexico and at our Southern border?
You don’t say! We need to get behind President Trump and secure our borders. https://t.co/4aYh1rqwdO

U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) provided an update on its recent apprehensions at the southern border, which include over 1,000 migrants from various African countries in less than two months — and that is in just one sector.
“U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the Del Rio Sector have arrested over 1,100 people from countries in Africa since May 30,” CBP revealed in a press release Friday.
“The apprehension of people from African countries illegally crossing our borders continues to increase,” Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Raul L. Ortiz said in a statement included in the release. “Our agents this year have encountered people from 51 countries other than Mexico including 19 countries from the continent of Africa.” More
Can’t get through US Customs with plants and flowers from abroad but we allow unfiltered migration of hundreds of thousands from 51 different countries, including 19 African countries.
U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the Eagle Pass Station have arrested another group of 34 people from Africa. Del Rio Sector has seen a dramatic rise in the number of arrests of illegal immigrants from African countries over the past week.
“The introduction of this new population places additional burdens on processing stations, to include language and cultural differences,” said Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Raul L. Ortiz. “Our agents continue to meet each new challenge as the ongoing humanitarian crisis evolves.”
On June 5, agents assigned to the Eagle Pass Station arrested a group of 34 people from the continent of Africa. Since May 30, more than 500 people from the continent of Africa have been arrested by the U.S. Border Patrol in Del Rio Sector. Agents have encountered immigrants from Africa crossing the Rio Grande River in multiple separate events, including one group of over 100 individuals. These groups are primarily made up of family units from the Republic of the Congo, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Angola.
Del Rio Sector’s total apprehensions to date this year are in excess of 33,000, already more than double the total number of arrests made during the previous fiscal year. More than 27,000 of the individuals arrested this year, over 80 percent, are from approximately 38 countries other than Mexico.
All immigrants arrested are medically evaluated and are referred to medical professionals for more advanced care if needed.
Hey Democrats, if you do not start reaching across the aisle to fix our broken immigration laws and secure our border, you will go down in history as having been complicit in the invasion of America. How can the Democrats be so ignorant and uncaring for the American people?Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
