More than 200,000 migrants were detained in July in an attempt to enter the States illegally from Mexico, the U.S. Border Patrol said.
– We are facing an unprecedented number of migrants at the border crossings on our southern border. The border situation is one of the most complex challenges we face. It is complex, changing and addressing vulnerable people in the midst of a global pandemic, said US Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Majorcas.
In July , the number of unaccompanied children increased by 24 percent compared to the previous month, ie 18,962 children were detained.
The number of migrants seeking to enter the United States declined at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic and then began to rise again in 2020 to “explode” after Joe Biden took office.
