Randy Clark, Breitbart, January 20, 2022

In two separate events in as many days, nearly 800 migrants managed to cross the Rio Grande and surrender to Border Patrol. One group of nearly 400 crossed on Wednesday and another similarly sized came early Thursday.

According to a source within Customs and Border Protection, the groups were mostly Venezuelan family units and single adults. The source says daily apprehensions are on the rise as large groups in excess of 100 are crossing daily. Seven large groups were apprehended within the sector in last five days.

The increase in migrant crossings in the Del Rio Sector, which includes Eagle Pass, has resulted in the sector becoming the busiest in the nation.
