The many non-Mexican migrants apprehended throughout the exact same 10-month duration a year previously had to do with 16,000.
Rosendo Hinojosa, Rio Grande Valley Border Patrol Sector chief, said Friday the non-Mexican migrants are coming primarily from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. Hinojosa states the figures are not unprecedented, as his sector typically has been an entry point for unlawful immigrants from Central America.
Professionals say rising violence in addition to economic conditions in different Central American countries is most likely sustaining the boost.
