A record number of undocumented immigrants were arrested by Border Patrol’s Del Rio Sector so far this year.

The sector, which covers 210 miles of land between the Rio Grand River and Lake Amistad in Texas, apprehended migrants from more than 30 countries since Oct. 1, more than twice the number this time last year, The Epoch Times reports.

“The apprehension of migrants from countries such as Brazil, Haiti, China, and countries of Africa have increased significantly this fiscal year,” Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Raul L. Ortiz said.

He added, “We continue to work with our law enforcement partners to combat threats in an effort to protect our country and the community.”

Trump’s CBP Head Violated Ethics Rules While Working for the FBI

President Trump appointed Mark Morgan to head Customs and Border Protection in an effort to clean up the agency.

But it turns out, Morgan violated federal ethics roles while working for the FBI as deputy assistant director of the training division in 2015.

Morgan solicited sponsors to purchase booze and upscale food for FBI happy hours, even though he had been warned it violated federal rules to ask outside entities to pay for social events, the Justice Department’s inspector general found.

Morgan was the acting ICE director in June when Trump appointed him to replace John Sanders as acting head of CBP. Morgan had previously served as chief of Border Patrol before taking over as head of ICE in May.

Morgan became the first person to lead CBP without having served at Border Patrol.

His appointment was intended to bring fresh eyes into an agency that needed cleaned up.
