Border at 'breaking point' as more than 76,000 migrants cross in a month


Tamir Kalifa • New York Times

Migrants, including children, were taken into custody by a ­Border Patrol agent near Granjeno, Texas, early last month.

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.
