CBP has reported over 900,000 illegal immigrant encounters at the southern border since January. Nearly 190,000 migrants were encountered in June alone.
In late June, three undocumented migrants were arrested after breaking into a Texas ranch house in Sierra Blanca and stealing firearms, ammunition food and clothing, U.S. Customs and Border Protection said. Local law enforcement took the three men into custody without incident.
June’s numbers also take the number of encounters in Fiscal Year 2021 to more than 1 million, with three months left to go. That’s in comparison to just over 458,000 in all of FY 2020 and 977,509 in all of FY 2019.
