Within five minutes on Tuesday morning Border Patrol agents in Texas to apprehend more than 400 illegal immigrants.
Agents near the wall just west of Bowie High School in El Paso encountered a group of 194 illegals around 2:45 a.m. Just minutes later, agents snagged a second group — this time, it was 245 people — near downtown El Paso. According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).
Fox News reports that the immigrants mainly comprised families and unaccompanied minors from Central America.
Officials said more than 430 people, including those in the two large groups, had been taken in near the El Paso Sector Border Patrol, just three hours into the day.
That specific port of entry averages over 570 apprehensions a day.
