Border Patrol Chief: In My Sector, We Are Apprehending 1,000-Plus A Day

U.S. Border Patrol Rio Grande Valley Sector Chief Rodolfo Karisch says “in my 30-years as an agent, I have never witnessed the conditions we are currently facing on the southwest border”.

He says last year, agent in the Rio Grande Valley (RGV) Sector made 162,000 apprehensions.This year they are already at 147,000, at this pace he says they’ll finish the year with more than 260,000 apprehensions.

On average the Rio Grande Valley Sector apprehends more than 1,000 illegally crossing the border a day, “roughly the capacity of 17-commercial buses.”

Karisch says “much media attention has focused on caravans from Central America but the fact is that RGV is receiving caravan-equivalent numbers of migrants every 7-days”.
