With thousands of American troops deployed to the United States’ southern border with Mexico in recent weeks, US Border Patrol Agents in Arizona have arrested at least 650 migrants in just two days.

According to Fox News, “Agents in the Yuma Sector said they detained 654 people – most reportedly being family units or unaccompanied minors from Guatemala – on Monday and Tuesday.”

“Larger numbers [of illegal immigrants] have started to illegally cross shallow portions of the Colorado River near Yuma,” said a press release from the Border Patrol Agency.

The arrests come as the initial members of the ‘migrant caravan’ arrived at the US-Mexico border in Tijuana Tuesday; with an estimated 2,000-4,000 additional immigrants slowly making their way north.
