(Worthy News) - The number of migrants apprehended at America's southern border skyrocketed last month to levels not seen in over a decade, with U.S. Customs and Border Protection reporting nearly 133,000 arrests in May.
The number surpassed 144,000 when counting migrants deemed inadmissible -- more than a 30 percent increase from the prior month and double the influx recorded at the beginning of the year.
The number of apprehensions was the highest monthly total in more than 13 years. In April, authorities recorded 99,304 arrests. [ Source: Fox News (Read More...) ]
