Border Patrol Agents Make About 420,000 Arrests Last Budget Year – a 15% Increase

Border Patrol agents arrested more than 420,000 people – a 15% increase – in the past budget year that ended in September, the Associated Press reports.

This is the second consecutive year for an uptick in arrests following a 40-year low in apprehensions in 2011, the AP wrote.

The arrests represent about 320,000 different people.

Largely to blame for the increase are arrests from people in countries other than Mexico, the AP reported.
