Record number of undocumented immigrants flooded the southern border in May

Border Patrol officers encountered more than 144,000 undocumented immigrants at the southwest border in May, the largest monthly total in 13 years, officials said Wednesday.

More than 132,000 were stopped while crossing the border illegally; the rest presented themselves at legal ports of entry, Customs and Border Protection officials said.

May marked the third month in a row that more than 100,000 immigrants were taken into custody at the border amid a surge of migrants heading north in large groups from the Northern Triangle countries of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.

This is going to get MUCH WORSE as climate change due to ignored and denied global warming acclerates.

No matter what Mexico or the US does, this will eventually overwhelm all efforts to ‘contain’ or coral climate change refugees.

Desperate people do desperate things, and if you cannot raise food on a farm, and you cannot work, there are very few other options.
