[Ed. – And keep in mind, the 100,000+ are just the ones they know about. The true count my be twice that or more.]
The Border Patrol has documented more than 100,000 immigrants who they know managed to illegally sneak past them and get into the interior of the country, the agency’s chief told Congress on Thursday, saying it’s the most in five years.
Known as “got aways,” the migrants are ones who agents detect, but know they didn’t manage to stop from crossing the border.
“This high level of ‘got aways’ is a direct result of agents being reassigned away from the frontline to provide humanitarian support to the unprecedented numbers of individuals and families in custody,” Chief Carla Provost told the House Homeland Security Committee.
