Hundreds of Migrants Surrender to Border Patrol in Arizona
More than 200 migrants surrendered to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) in Arizona Sunday morning, according to the agency.
“Early this morning another large group of 200+ illegal border crossers surrendered to Tucson Sector
#USBP agents west of Lukeville,” according to the law enforcement group’s Arizona Twitter account.

The bust comes as immigration authorities are overloaded with migrants, and seeking placement solutions. A group of migrants that crossed the border illegally in the Rio Grande Valley will be moved to San Diego Monday afternoon. California is notoriously a “sanctuary state” for illegal aliens.
Thousands of migrants have trampled America’s borders in past months, while Democrats and elite politicians in Washington, D.C. insist there is no crisis at the border.
Big League Politics reported on one such incident in April:
Hundreds of migrants rushed the US-Mexico border at 1 AM Tuesday morning.
Citizen border watcher Jim Benvie’s Facebook Live in the wee hours of Tuesday morning shows hundreds of migrants from Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras who crossed the US-Mexico border in the El Paso sector on the New Mexico-Texas line in the middle of the night. Border Patrol was originally nowhere to be found, as law enforcement is stretched thin.
Several hundred migrants showed up at “Camp Liberty,” where WeBuildTheWall is going up and down the southern border evaluating many locations for private construction. Benvie is a correspondent whose videos have appeared in many news sites.
“Whoever got in last night is going to be here for a while” Benvie told Big League Politics in an interview, though the Tuesday morning invaders were not violent. Even though only less than ten percent of them will qualify for amnesty, the migrants will still get court dates and will be able to stick around in the United States with EBT cards and other benefits.
Benvie told Big League Politics that terrorists are coming in, and the situation is dire.
“Basically we have to do things that are non-violent. We are not allowed to put them in cuffs. We are basically able to stop them using deterrents. Our guys dress with masks on their face. They carry AR-s, so people listen to what they’re telling them to do. If they start running from us, then we chase them but don’t touch them. If they hurt anybody, if they attack a Border Patrol officer, we can jump in and protect the officer,” Benvie told BLP.
