Customs and Border Protection where nearly overwhelmed when the largest lone group of asylum seekers tunneled into the U.S. at the San Luis, Arizona border.
Video from ABC News shows hundreds of migrants waiting in line to voluntarily turn themselves in to officials.
Allegedly smugglers breached the wall by digging seven holes in succession and filing the migrants through them.
Customs and Border Protection showed that 179 of the 376 people who crossed over were children, with as many as 30 of them being unaccompanied minors.
“That’s our No. 1 challenge that we have here in the Yuma sector, is the humanitarian problem,” stated CBP Yuma Border Sector Chief Anthony Porvaznik. “As I mentioned, 87 percent of the apprehensions here are family units and unaccompanied alien children.”
The migrants took advantage of a section of the border were an out-dated wall sits on soft sand. The section is patrolled by a group of merely three agents, who must also monitor an additional 26 miles of border.
Obsolete fortifications and far too few workers are just some of the symptoms of woefully unprotected border. Here’s hoping Democrats will finally understand that the only way to end the invasion is with a secure and protected border.
