Border Patrol in Tucson Sector Reports Record 18,900 Apprehensions of Illegal Aliens in One Week

In the latest news from the southern border, the Tucson sector of the Border Patrol has reported a startling number of illegal immigrant apprehensions. According to official figures, a staggering 18,900 individuals were apprehended in just one week, marking the highest weekly total ever recorded for the sector. This new record surpasses the previous week’s total of 17,500 by a significant margin, as the crisis at the border continues to escalate. These numbers serve as a testament to the challenges faced by border security officials in dealing with the influx of illegal crossings.

Fox News reporter Bill Melugin shared the shocking statistics, highlighting the unprecedented scale of the situation. The majority of the crossings were concentrated in Lukeville, a hotspot for illegal incursions across the border. This particular area has been a focal point of media attention due to numerous reports of border wall breaches and mass illegal crossings. It’s crucial to note that the Tucson sector is just one of nine Border Patrol sectors along the southern border, raising concerns about the broader implications of this ongoing crisis.

Earlier this week, The Gateway Pundit had already reported on the alarming surge of illegal aliens at the southern border, with more than 12,000 individuals flooding in a single day. Images of a border wall breach and mass incursion in Lukeville, Arizona further underscored the severity of the situation, as illegal aliens from Africa openly celebrated their unauthorized entry into the United States. In one particularly jarring incident, a group of single, military-age men from northern Africa chanted “America! America!” as they jubilantly crossed the border, capturing the attention of the media and highlighting the brazen nature of these crossings.

The chaos and disorder at the border were further exemplified by scenes of hordes of illegals walking down the middle of the highway in Lukeville, Arizona. These visuals provided a stark reminder of the widespread impact of the border crisis, with individuals from various countries, including Mexico, Ecuador, and Africa, contributing to the overwhelming numbers of illegal immigrants entering the US. It’s estimated that more than 10 million illegal aliens, predominantly military-age men, have flooded into the US since Joe Biden assumed office in January 2021, creating an unprecedented and unsustainable situation for authorities to manage.
