 More Than 100,000 Tried to Cross Border In March

Posted By Charles Fain Lehman On April 11, 2019 @ 3:00 pm 

U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced Wednesday that it had apprehended more than 100,000 people, many children and parents, illegally crossing the border in March.

In total, CBP apprehended 103,492 people, 92,000 of whom were stopped trying to cross between ports of entry by the U.S. Border Patrol. Sixty-six thousand of the apprehended individuals—64.5 percent of the total—were either unaccompanied children (UACs) or members of families traveling together (each individual is referred to as a "family unit").

March apprehensions represent a 77 percent increase over February, and are in fact the most single-month apprehensions in at least the past ten years. They easily surpass the surge of UACs that qualified as a crisis in 2014. This perhaps explains why Jeh Johson, who served as Secretary of Homeland Security under then-President Barack Obama, said during a Thursday appearance on Fox & Friends that the current situation was a "crisis by any measure."
