Tucson Sector Apprehends Record 16K Migrant Families in 2019

Published

Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents apprehended a record 16,199 migrant family members during Fiscal Year 2019. This represented an increase of 227 percent over the previous year’s total.
During Fiscal Year 2019, which ended on September 30, Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents set a new record in the apprehension of migrant families. The agents apprehended 16,199 Family Unit Aliens, according to information obtained from Tucson Sector Border Patrol officials. This represents an increase of 227 percent over the previous year’s total of 4,954 FMUAs.

Additionally, agents apprehended 5,105 unaccompanied children. Officials reported the children ranged in age from infant to 17-years-old. The apprehension of Unaccompanied Alien Children jumped two percent from the previous year’s total of 5,023.

Single adult men seeking to avoid apprehension continued to be the largest migrant demographic faced by Tucson Sector agents. The Tucson Sector reported the arrest of 42,186 single adult men. This accounts for 66 percent of all migrant apprehensions in the sector, officials reported.

“Human smugglers continue to put migrants’ lives in danger by abandoning them in the desert,” Tucson Sector officials said in a written statement. “Tucson Sector saved the lives of 924 people from vast desert and wilderness areas, many of whom called 911.”

This accounts for nearly 20 percent of all migrant rescues conducted along the southwest border with Mexico.

In addition to the migrants, Tucson Sector agents also seized large quantities of drugs at inland immigration checkpoints and other locations. The agents seized 2,700 pounds of methamphetamine, 150 pounds of heroin, 13 pounds of fentanyl, and 59,000 pounds of marijuana. Officials report the marijuana seizures were down by 50 percent — a trend noted in all other southwest border sectors.

“Supplemental funding, cooperation with the Government of Mexico, and new agreements made with Central American countries are credited with a decrease in illegal entries along the Southwest border since May 2019,” sector officials reported. “Officials are counting on new border infrastructure to further prevent human smuggling and drug trafficking.”

Officials cited the construction of new border wall segments near Lukeville, Arizona. This is the region where the largest numbers of migrant family units crossed illegally from Mexico. Other segments are being constructed near Douglas, Arizona, officials stated.

“We continue our dedication to border security in 2020,” Tucson Sector Chief Patrol Agent Roy Villareal said in a written statement. “With agents committed to protecting the United States and partnerships with strong and dedicated federal, state, county, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies in Arizona, we’re working on a common goal: to keep our communities safe.”

Yesterday, Fort Brown agents working near Brownsville, Texas, arrested multiple illegal aliens after they illegally entered the United States.

The judge sentenced her to 10 years confinement, which was subsequently reduced to three years probation.

Border Patrol referred PEINADO-Sanchez for criminal prosecution.

OCOTILLO, Calif. – U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the El Centro Sector arrested an illegal alien on Tuesday convicted of a sexual offense.

The incident occurred at around 5:08 p.m., when agents assigned to the Mountain Disrupt Unit working in the Jacumba Wilderness apprehended an illegal alien. The illegal alien was placed under arrest and transported to El Centro Station for further processing.

At the station, agents conducted a criminal background investigation and medical screening. During the investigation, record checks revealed that the man, a 42-year-old illegal alien from Mexico, had a conviction on March 14, 2010, for “Felony Lewdness with a child under 16 years old” out of Nye County in Nevada. The illegal alien was sentenced to 156 months confinement for his conviction.

An update from Foreman Mike. WATCH:

Additionally, an Immigration Judge had previously ordered the illegal alien removed from the United States on September 23, 2005.

The illegal alien was processed criminally for 8 USC 1326 Reentry of Removed Aliens.

In fiscal year 2020, El Centro Sector Border Patrol agents have arrested and removed 41 individuals either convicted or wanted on sexual offense charges after they entered the United States illegally.
