The flood of illegal immigrants trying to beat Inauguration Day has turned into a tsunami.
According to a story at eHeadlines:
— Family unit arrests have spiked 130 percent over 2015, to 28,691.
— Overall arrests of illegals surged 42 percent, to 93,405.
According to Pew Research Center analysis, the apprehensions follow an already record-breaking fiscal year, which ended in September, when 408,870 were apprehended at the Southwest border.
Another detail found by Pew:
Also in fiscal 2016, apprehensions of Central Americans exceeded that of Mexicans for just the second time. This first occurred in 2014, when there was a record surge in apprehensions of unaccompanied children and families, mostly from El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala. Apprehensions dropped in 2015 due in part to increased immigration enforcement by the Mexican government at its southern border and internally, which made it more difficult for Central Americans to travel through Mexico to reach the U.S.
