Large Groups of Migrants Strain Busiest Border Section

Large groups of people who have entered the U.S. illegally are putting a strain on Border Patrol agents, officials say, pointing to two more large groups that crossed into Texas on Thursday.

“The Del Rio Sector is amidst a record-breaking year for illegal crossings. This fiscal year, we have encountered 345 large groups & 20 of those have already come this month. These large groups put a huge strain not only on our agents & resources, but on our communities as well,” Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Jason D. Owens tweeted on Thursday along with photos of the groups.

The Del Rio Sector sees more than 60% of large migrant group crossings, according to a Labor Day weekend recap report by Gerardo Inocencio, Eagle Pass South acting patrol agent in charge, according to Breitbart News. According to the report, 10 large groups of 2,395 migrants crossed the border during the long holiday weekend.
