Eagle Pass, Texas — As the federal government begins a new fiscal year, migrant border crossings and apprehensions immediately began to climb. As Breitbart Texas watched, border crossings in the nation’s busiest sector continued unabated. Within a few short hours Saturday morning, nearly 300 migrants had already been apprehended near Eagle Pass, Texas.
Shortly after midnight on Saturday, a single migrant group of nearly 200 migrants managed to safely ford the Rio Grande and surrender to authorities in Texas, according to a source within CBP. The group of migrants, mostly Venezuelan, Nicaraguan, and Cuban nationals were among the first to cross into the United States in the brand new Fiscal Year 23. The unabated crossings are a continuation of back-to-back record-breaking years for migrant apprehensions under the Biden administration.
