Illegal immigrant encounters reach almost 190,000 in June: - The federal government counted almost 190,000

Posted: Jul 20th, 2021 - 5:05 am

people trying to illegally cross the southwest border into the United States in June, as border patrol agency figures project one million unauthorized crossings in 2021, newly released figures show.

That represents a five percent increase from May, according to federal figures.

The Customs and Border Protection said it is receiving an increase in “distress calls” from migrants, who battle tough conditions to make their journey.

“We are in the hottest part of the summer, and we are seeing a high number of distress calls to CBP from migrants abandoned in treacherous terrain by smugglers with no regard for human life,” said CBP Acting Commissioner Troy Miller in a statement Friday.

“Although CBP does everything it can to locate and rescue individuals who are lost or distressed, the bottom line is this: the terrain along the border is extreme, the summer heat is severe, and the miles of desert migrants must hike after crossing the border in many areas are unforgiving.”

In June, CBP counted 188,829 people attempting to cross the southwestern border, figures released Friday show.
