Young ILLEGALS On Border Quadrupled In May

Associated Press
The number of illegal immigrant children surging the border quadrupled in May compared to a year ago at the same time, and the number of people traveling as families is up six-fold, according to new Homeland Security statistics released Wednesday.
Border Patrol agents caught 6,405 children trying to jump the border last month, and nabbed another 9,485 “family units.” A year ago in May those numbers were just 1,493 Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) and another 1,577 family units.
Officers at the ports of entry encountered an additional 830 Unaccompanied UAC and 4,718 family members traveling together. That number includes people who plan to seek asylum.
The number of people caught is considered a rough yardstick for the overall flow of people crossing, so the surge suggests that more people are also making it through undetected.
