The border crisis continues to get worse by the day.
U.S.Border Patrol officials set a new record for single-day apprehensions on Thursday with the arrest of over 1,000 illegal immigrants at the Del Rio Sector in one day.
Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Austin Skero tweeted the news of a record-setting apprehension of more than 1,000 migrants in a single day.
The chief said his agents also interdicted 27 human smuggling attempts and arrested three convicted sex offenders during the past 48 hours.
One day earlier, Skero tweeted images of a large group of migrants being apprehended near the Rio Grande. Border Patrol defines a “large group” as more than 100 migrants in a single crossing incident.
He said Del Rio Station agents see the bulk of the large group apprehensions and apprehended approximately 230 every day for the past 60 days.
So far this fiscal year, which began on October 1, 2020, Del Rio Sector agents apprehended 90,392 migrants — a 337 percent increase over the previous year’s 18,936.

Data released last month by CBP indicated that border agents have seen a 233 percent increase in the amount of fentanyl seized at the southern border compared to last year, Fox News reported over the first three months of the year.
According to CBP, 639 pounds of fentanyl were seized in March, up from 245 pounds in March 2020.
If drug seizures at the US-Mexico border maintain their pace for the remaining 5 months of fiscal 2021, by September 30:
* Fentanyl would increase 130% over 2020
* Cocaine would increase 57%
* Heroin would increase 2%
* Meth would stay the same
* Marijuana would decline 45% pic.twitter.com/ZbK2G3bRS3

Through the first three months of the year, CBP reported that it had seized more than a ton of the drug, snaring 2,098 pounds of fentanyl. In the first quarter of 2020, 629 pounds were seized.
According to newly released data, a whopping 178,622 was stopped by federal law enforcement at the U.S.-Mexico border trying to illegally enter the country.
That number is the highest amount in more than two decades.
The April total is up 3% from 172,331 in March, a 20-year high for the number of people who tried to get into the United States by sneaking over between land crossings or were denied entry at the border checkpoints.
Here’s the most terrifying stat of all: In 2020, only 459,000 migrants were apprehended trying to illegally enter the U.S.
In the 2021 fiscal year alone, nearly 750,000 people have been encountered trying to enter the U.S. from Mexico.
Texas Republican Attorney General Ken Paxton is always suing Biden’s administration for allegedly releasing Covid-infected illegal aliens into the United States.
According to Breitbart, Immigration and Customs Enforcement have carried out 75% fewer “priority” arrests, and arrests the Biden administration deems “non-priority” cut by over 80% to the same time frame in 2020.
