For the fourth time in five months, the number of migrant families crossing the southwest border has broken records, border enforcement authorities said Tuesday, warning that government facilities are full and agents are overwhelmed.
More than 76,000 migrants crossed the border without authorization in February, more than double the levels from the same period last year and approaching the largest numbers seen in any February in the last 12 years.
The system is well beyond capacity, and remains at the breaking point, Kevin K. McAleenan, commissioner of Customs and Border Protection, told reporters in announcing the new data.
Diverted by new restrictions at many of the leading ports of entry, migrant families continue to arrive in ever-larger groups in remote parts of Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. At least 70 such groups of 100 or more people have turned themselves in at Border Patrol stations that typically are staffed by only a handful of agents, often hours away from civilization. By comparison, only 13 such groups arrived in the last fiscal year, and two in the year before.
More than 90 percent of the new arrivals were from Guatemala, officials said, with a significant change in the dynamics of the migration: While Central American migrants once took weeks to journey through Mexico to the United States, many Guatemalan families are now boarding buses and reaching the southwest border in as little as four to seven days on a very consistent basis, Mr. McAleenan said.
Mr. McAleenan also declared sweeping changes to the agencys procedures for guaranteeing adequate medical care for migrants an overhaul brought on by the deaths of two migrant children in the agencys custody in December.

But there’s no emergency.
Just ask the RINO gang and their Rat compatriots.
Trump needs to close the border and deploy troops to enforce the closure. It is a national emergency, time to treat it as one.
I’m surprised the NYT is actually reporting this.
But but but... SanFranNan said there was no crisis!!
Yes, and they're rubbing their hands in glee that the Cloward-Piven strategy is working so well on the border.
While Central American migrants once took weeks to journey through Mexico to the United States, many Guatemalan families are now boarding buses and reaching the southwest border in as little as four to seven days on a very consistent basis,
Who is providing the buses?

For the Socialist lurkers:
Gee, that almost sounds like....
While Central American migrants once took weeks to journey through Mexico to the United States, many Guatemalan families are now boarding buses and reaching the southwest border in as little as four to seven days on a very consistent basis, Mr. McAleenan said.
The organizations that are creating and transporting these caravans need to be labeled a terrorist organization bent on causing the destabilisation of our country.
But you have to note, the SLIMES, in their report, are blaming this on President Trump..........NOT the fact that liberal/socialist organizations are building/financing these organized invasions, to hurt the US.
I think the corrupt individuals, at the SLIMES, know that the problem is getting so bad, that they can't keep it covered up from the public anymore, so they have to propagandize that it's a direct result of Trump being in office.
I really can't stand these people............
Jim Acosta said so, so it must be true.
But no emergency.
The Deep State / Uniparty really sucks.
Trump must stay the course. I expect he will.
And thanks to that traitor Roberts we have to let them in.
I did a double-take too.
Maybe our POTUS will reference the NYT and make some more heads explode.
But, like, sanctuary cities and stuff.
NYT..!!?? Has to be some other motive besides simply blaming Trump that they’d report something like this..
