While fewer undocumented people were confronted by federal agents along the Southwest border of the United States in June migrants continue to flock to the border in droves, statistics show, with more than a 50% increase in encounters so far this fiscal year compared to the same time last year.

The June statistics released by U.S. Customs and Border Protection, show that between the fiscal year of October 2021 to June 2022, just over 1.6 million undocumented individuals were intercepted at the Southwest border, which stretches from Texas to California. That’s a 51.8% rise compared to the same period last year when federal agents encountered just a little over 1 million migrants at the Southwest border.
