U.S. Border Patrol agents apprehended more than 220,000 migrants who crossed the southwest border in December. The number of apprehended migrants sets a record for December and is the second-largest month since the Clinton administration. This brings the total apprehensions for the first quarter of FY23 to more than 631,000.

Border Patrol agents assigned to the nine southwest border sectors apprehended well over 220,000 migrants in December, according to unofficial numbers in a Border Patrol report reviewed by Breitbart Texas. This represents an increase of nearly 30 percent over the more than 170,000 migrants apprehended in December 2021. It also represents a 210 percent increase over December 2020, President Donald Trump’s last full month in office. . . .
