Despite Democrats alleging their is no crisis on the southern border, illegal aliens are still attempting to pour into America from Mexico.
Customs and Border Protection are demonstrating that point this week as the agency reports it nabbed over 400 illegals in just five minutes near El Paso, Texas.
“U.S. Border Patrol agents working in El Paso apprehended two large groups of illegal immigrants consisting of over 400 people within five minutes,” the agency reports. “These groups, like many others before, are comprised primarily of Central American families and unaccompanied juveniles.”
A photo tweeted by CBP shows a large mass of people detained and awaiting processing in the middle of the night.
“In the early morning hours of March 19, agents encountered the first group of 194 illegal crossers at approximately 2:45 a.m. The group was encountered by agents at the border wall just west of Bowie High School,” according to CBP.
“Just five minutes later at 2:50 a.m., agents working farther west encountered a second group of 252 people who crossed illegally near Downtown El Paso. 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.”
CPB says the El Paso sector is averaging 570 apprehensions a day.
Meanwhile, the Yuma Sector “group of 171 illegal aliens from Central America who dug underneath an outdated portion of infrastructure on Sunday after suspected smugglers in Mexico coordinated their entry.”

Farther west, smugglers dropped two girls over the border to distract agents so a larger group could cross illegally.
Last night, a human smuggler dropped two young Salvadoran girls, 6 and 9, from the aging border barrier behind concertina wire. As agents vacated their patrol positions in response, 10 people crossed illegally nearby. They eluded capture. #USBP #CBP #BORDER #BORDERSECURITY pic.twitter.com/t2QNmQLpoK
