Thousands of Migrants Enter San Diego Sector in One Day

Two thousand illegal immigrants were apprehended in the San Diego sector of the Southern border on April 24.

Of the 2,000 migrants, 206 were Chinese.

The San Diego sector also had the most illegal crossings throughout April, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

According to Fox News’ Bill Melugin, the top four nationalities crossing into the San Diego sector were those from Ecuador, Colombia, Peru, and China.

San Diego County Supervisor Jim Desmond recently told The New York Post that a “minimum” of 125,000 migrants have entered San Diego in the last seven months.

The migrants were released onto the city’s streets “without proper vetting,” he said.

“That’s just the minimum we know about and doesn’t include families, boat arrivals, or elderly people who are processed differently,” Desmond explained. “The numbers have gone through the roof.”

Desmond added that Customs and Border Protection (CBP) does not have enough resources to vet illegal immigrants.

“It’s a national issue, as most people are released from detention within 24-48 hrs and [then] going elsewhere in the country – many to the East Coast,” he said.

The vetting process often takes 72 hours.
