Border Patrol is experiencing an increase in the number of migrants being detained at the Mexico border.

In March, the number of people detained crossing the border reached 33,335, a 28% increase over February, the Los Angeles Times reports. 

Compared to this time last year, the number of family members captured crossing the border has nearly tripled.

Unaccompanied youth all are increasingly getting caught at the border. From October through March of this year, agents captured nearly 28,000 unaccompanied youth at the border, a 78% increased compared to the same time last year.

“The Department of Homeland Security continues to closely monitor current migration trends and is working aggressively to address underlying causes and deter future increases in unauthorized migration, while ensuring that those with legitimate humanitarian claims are afforded the opportunity to seek protection,” officials said in a statement. “We also continue to support broader regional efforts to address the humanitarian situation in Central America.”
