Illegal immigrant families shattered record in October

Washington Times – by Stephen Dinan

Illegal immigrant families shattered the old records and snuck into the country at record rates in October, according to new numbers released Friday.

A staggering 23,121 parents and children traveling as families were caught jumping the border last month. That’s nearly 40 percent higher than any month on record.  

It’s also nearly 400 percent more than the number recorded just a year ago.

The numbers underscore the challenge the Trump administration is facing as it tries to tamp down on what appears to be a run for the border by Central Americans, particularly from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.

  1. That is amazing….

    Mexicans can jump 40% higher over the border than last year.

    I mean do the math…

    If the border wall is 20′.

    That means they can jump at least 15′ feet higher.

    For a total of..35′. + or -.

    I would suggest building the wall to at least 50′.

    Only because I believe in providing viable practical solutions.

    In a world with fkd up answers.

    1. I saw a western once where a cowboy jumped over a 20 foot fence as he was being chased by an Cherokee Indian looking for hair.
