Final Numbers: CBP Catches 40K Illegal Alien Kids At Mexico Border in FY2015

By  MRCTV, Special for  USDR

The end-of-Fiscal Year 2015 illegal immigration numbers are in. According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection data updated Wednesday, CBP apprehended a grand total of 39,970 unaccompanied alien minors crossing the Southwest U.S. border in FY2015. That’s a 42 percent decrease from the 68,541 UACs they caught at the border in FY2014.

The year-end numbers ended on a surge, as the number of illegal alien kids being caught at the border steadily increased as the months ticked by. August proved to be the month with the highest apprehension numbers at 4,632 UACs – or about 149 per day. September wasn’t too far behind at 4,476 UACs (also about 149 per day).

CBP’s most recent numbers come on the same day that U.S. Border Patrol Agent Chris Cabrera told a congressional committee he estimates border agents only catch about 40 percent of all illegal immigrants coming into the United States unlawfully.
