CBP Del Rio Sector: Over 1,100 From Africa Arrested Since May 30th

As America continues to face a national sovereignty and humanitarian crisis at its southern boundary, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has reported that Border Patrol agents in the Del Rio sector arrested more than 1,100 individuals from African nations in less than two months—the arrests all occurred just since May 30th according to CBP.

“The apprehension of people from African countries illegally crossing our borders continues to increase,” Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Raul L. Ortiz stated. “Our agents this year have encountered people from 51 countries other than Mexico including 19 countries from the continent of Africa.”

The press release also notes that the Del Rio sector has seen a steep increase in illegal alien apprehensions: 

“For fiscal year 2019 to date, Del Rio Sector’s total apprehensions are in excess of 44,000 illegal immigrants, already more than double the total number of arrests made during the previous fiscal year.”

An earlier CBP press release dated June 5th indicated that over 500 individuals from Africa were arrested in the Del Rio Sector during the short span since May 30th:

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.

At that time Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Ortiz pointed out that this generated new complications: 

“The introduction of this new population places additional burdens on processing stations, to include language and cultural differences,” he explained. “Our agents continue to meet each new challenge as the ongoing humanitarian crisis evolves.”
