Over 171,000 migrants were apprehended at the southern border in March, up from 78,442 in January, according to preliminary U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data reviewed by The Washington Post.

It is the highest monthly total since 2006, signifying the sheer amount of people mostly fleeing Central America, especially unaccompanied minors.

In March, according to The Post‘s Friday report, CBP detained over 18,800 unaccompanied minors—a mind-boggling 99% increase from February. This easily surpasses the previous one-month high record of 11,861 in May 2019, as the newspaper noted.

The surge in the amount of migrants arriving as part of family groups last month skyrocketed to over 53,000, a massive uptick from 19,246 in February and 7,294 in January, according to the preliminary figures.

Sara Carter joined Steve Hilton on Fox News Sunday night to describe something so terrifying, it ‘even frightens the Democratic Party.”

People from all over the world are crossing our borders and they are not being vetted. People from “over 150 nations have already crossed this border.”

Violence is escalating on the border and Carter does not expect it to slow down. Carter adds 1.7 million migrants entered the U.S. in the last fiscal year “and being apprehended. So we expect a lot more people coming in this year.”

This is “just the first year of the Biden administration. What can happen in the next three years literally frightens me.” Carter concludes it’s so drastic, “it even frightens the Democratic Party.”
