Trump's Border Patrol Arrests Hundreds Within Minutes
 
United States Border Patrol recently made an arrest that almost seems impossible.

According to The Daily Wire:

Border Patrol agents in El Paso, TX, apprehended more than 400 illegal immigrants in a span of five minutes early Tuesday morning.

The agents, working in Texas, apprehended the first group of 194 illegal immigrants around 2:45 a.m. near Bowie High School in El Paso. Five minutes later – at 2:50 a.m. – another group of agents apprehended a second group of 252 who had just crossed the border near Downtown El Paso, according to a press release from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

“In all, agents had already taken over 430 people into custody within the first three hours in what appears to be only the beginning of another busy day for the El Paso Sector Border Patrol,” the agency wrote.

The group was comprised mostly of Central American families and unaccompanied minors, which Border Patrol says is seen regularly. The agency also said that it has averaged 570 apprehensions a day for the past month – 90% of which occur in the El Paso Metropolitan Area.

  The report indicates that border crossings are down since 2001 but the change in demographics has clogged up the asylum process and stretched the resources of our border agents thin.
