The CBP said that since the beginning of October, 24 groups of more than 100 migrants have crossed the border near Lordsburg, New Mexico. There were 176 children in the group. They were taken to Yuma after entering the country on Monday. The unusually large group was nearly entirely from Guatemala.
"That's our No. 1 challenge that we have here in the Yuma sector, is the humanitarian problem", he told ABC News.
"The United States Border Patrol is constantly building intelligence in order to combat these trafficking organizations that are constantly targeting them and gaining intelligence in order to apprehend them in the future", said Jose Garibay, Yuma Sector Border Patrol public information officer.
Border Patrol officials said agents would be processing the aforementioned apprehended subjects accordingly, according to the release.
CBP had only three agents patrolling the 26-mile-long section of the border where the crossings took place. "The only reason they're trying to say that they're family units is that they know if they're a family unit, they're going to be released within 20 days".
