US border officials detained about 100,000 immigrants on the border with Mexico in February, according to Reuters, citing two people familiar with the initial numbers, the highest rate of those arrested in February since 2006.
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.
