U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) published statistics showing what the agency's typical day looked like in 2019, and it's insane.

Every day, CBP disrupted or seized an average of 3,707 pounds of narcotics, seized $207,356 in undeclared or illicit currency, and seized $4.3 million in products violating intellectual property rights.

The agency made an average of 2,354 apprehensions between U.S. ports of entry, 23 arrests of wanted criminals, and 790 inadmissible-person refusals at ports of entry every day in the previous year. The agency also discovered 314 pests and quarantined an average of nearly 4700 agricultural items -- plants, meats, animal byproducts, and soil -- at ports of entry each day of 2019.

The numbers are staggering but pale in comparison to the average number of people and items the agency processed throughout the year. On their typical day, CBP processed 1,124,075 passengers and pedestrians, 273,338 incoming privately owned vehicles, 78,703 truck, rail and sea containers, and $7.3 billion worth of imported goods.

CBP employed 61,506 men and women in 2019, including 19,648 Border Patrol agents and 24,511 CBP officers. The agency also employed some 2,465 agricultural specialists, 597 pilots, 339 marine agents, 296 aviation enforcement agents, and 979 trade personnel.
