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.
