Bob Price, Breitbart, March 20, 2024

Swanton Sector Border Patrol agents continue to experience record-shattering levels of migrant apprehensions in the three-state area along the Canadian border with the United States. During the first five months of this fiscal year, Swanton Sector agents apprehended more than 4,000 migrants, up 110 percent over the same period one year ago.

Unofficial Border Patrol reports reviewed by Breitbart Texas revealed that Swanton Sector agents apprehended nearly 900 migrants during the month of February. This is up by more than 105 percent over the prior February. This brings the total for FY24, which began on October 1, 2023, to more than 4,000 migrant apprehensions.

Earlier this month, Swanton Sector Chief Patrol Agent Robert Garcia reported on X that his agents apprehended more migrants in FY23 than in the prior 11 years combined. {snip}
