Border Patrol Chief: Caravan-like Numbers Hitting Border Every Week From 50 Different Countries (Video)

On Tuesday, Chief of the Rio Grande Valley (RGV) Sector of Customs and Border Protection, Rodolfo Karisch, testified to Congress that a caravan-size influx of migrants is flooding across the border each week in just a single sector.

Karish said that in his sector alone, his agents apprehend, on average, 1,000 people a day. Karisch said that based on the current rate, they will have more than 260,000 apprehensions in his sector by the end of fiscal year 2019.

Karisch said his sector has apprehended people from 50 different countries, including China, Bangladesh, Turkey, Egypt and Romania.

“People are traveling across hemispheres to attempt to illegally enter the U.S., using the same pathways as the Central Americans,” he said.

Karisch said that in 30 years as an agent, “I have never witnessed the conditions we are currently facing on the southwest border.”

“This is not a manufactured crisis created by those of us who live and work in the border area. Border Patrol continues to apprehend record numbers of people who purposely violate U.S. immigration laws, we are taken advantage of by gaps in our legal frameworks and that undermine the rule of laws.”

“Criminal organizations along the border capitalize on these issues and make tremendous profits at the expense of both migrants and the American people.”

Frighteningly, Breitbart.com reported, the Department of Homeland Security has loosed 108,500 illegals upon unsuspecting Americans in the last three months. DHS released 24,000 between March 5 and March 20 alone.

“DHS is releasing more than 36,000 border crossers and illegal aliens into the country every single month,” the Breitbart.com reported. “For the year, DHS is on pace to release more than 430,000 border crossers and illegal aliens into the country.”

Another figure: 1.7 million illegal aliens have deportation orders or pending deportation orders. But they remain in the United States, with no real fear of being removed.

The CBP also continue to stop hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of illegal drugs and violent criminals like MS-13 members at the border.
