#THREAD CBP Releases Fiscal Year 2019 Migration Stats

"28 days in Feb we had over 66,000 apprehensions. During this fiscal year, so far today since October we have had over 268,000 apprehensions so far, as compared to the same timeframe last fiscal year, that's a 97% increase."
CBP:"It is well known at this time that adults with children will not be detained during immigration proceedings for illegal entry. The word of mouth & social media quickly gets back to those in the northern triangle countries that if you bring a child you will be successful." 2/
CBP on Border Fraud: "From April 2018 thru February of 2019 we've had almost 2400 fraudulent claims of families. Of those fraudulent claims some are folks who have claimed that they're under 18 and are not. Others have been fraudulent familial claims." 3/
CBP: "Another trend that we are seeing are the large groups. This is a dangerous trend for us...we've seen 70 of those groups. They've totaled over 12,000 apprehensions...if you look back historically, last fiscal year we had 13 of those groups, the year before that, 2." 4/
Probably the most disturbing part of this CBP press conference:

"The drug trafficking organizations are utilizing these groups as cover and diversion to divert our agents away from the National Security Border Mission, and use them as a diversion to cross drug loads." 5/
CBP:"Each and every day border patrol is putting approximately 25-40% of our man power is being dedicated to the care, transportation, and the humanitarian mission. They're pulled from the National Security Mission to do these things... the current situation is unsustainable." 6/
CBP: "We're on track to refer approximately 31,000 individuals for medical treatment this year, as compared to 12,000 last fiscal year."

"Between 2014-2018 MEDPAR data has shown that we have spent $98 million on medical services for individuals in CBP custody." 7/
