The numbers show the escalating increase in immigrants arriving at the southwestern border, as US President Joe Biden seeks to reverse some of former President Donald Trump’s policies that imposed restrictions on immigration.
The number of migrants detained at the US-Mexico border in February represented a significant increase compared to the number of migrants detained in January, to 78,000.
