Over 370 illegal migrants from Central America, including 179 children, were apprehended in Yuma, Arizona by the border patrol after they dug under the barricade to gain entry into the United States. Authorities stated that the migrants had dug small holes in seven different spots along the current barricade allowing them to easily gain entry into the United States. The section in question, about 10 miles east of a border crossing in San Luis, allowed the 376 Central Americans easy access to the United States. The unusually large group, mostly from Guatemala, did not attempt to evade Border Patrol agents when confronted.
According to Fox News in the month of January, just in Texas, Border Patrol agents arrested over 14,000 illegal immigrants and confiscated over 14,000 pounds of marijuana and 800 pounds of cocaine. Among the 14,000 illegal immigrants were over 100 El Salvadorian gang members from MS-13. Border Patrol agents in that area routinely patrol 17,000 square miles in 19 counties, which includes 320 river miles and 250 coastal miles.
Two MS-13 Gang Members were also arrested illegally crossing the border through the same means as the large group in the video below, which was recorded by surveillance cameras near the current standing border barrier.
