Savannah Hernandez spoke to the Deputy Constable of Eagle Pass who shared that apprehensions at his section of the border have reached almost a million since January of this year.
Overall 2.1 million people illegally crossed last year. In this specific sector the numbers have already surpassed last year’s high by nearly double.
In Eagle Pass we watched as illegal immigrants crossed from Mexico into the US. After they are picked up and processed by Border Patrol, a non-governmental organization will give the migrants food, phones and other supplies before taking them to the bus station.
