    Update: Border Patrol nabs 103,492 immigrants in March

    As the Trump administration has leveled more threats to close the southern border to immigrants, the number of illegal immigrants stopped at the border hit 103,492, the highest in five years, according to just-released U.S. Customs and Border Protection numbers.

    The agency seized more than 92,607 immigrants at the southern border last month, including 53,000 family units and 8,900 unaccompanied immigrant children.

    On individuals, it was an increase of 25,723, or 38% over February. And it was a one-year boost of 55,217, or 148% over March last year, according to a quick analysis by Princeton Policy Advisors.

    An earlier version of this story focused on the 92,607, but Border Patrol and the administration said the fuller accounting was 103,492.
