Without a wall to stop illegal crossings, U.S. Customs and Border Protection apprehended 654 illegal aliens in one location in just two days.
Arizona Border Patrol apprehended over 650 illegal immigrants on Monday and Tuesday of this week who illegally crossed from Mexico into the United States by wading through the Colorado River near Yuma, Arizona.

According to the press release written by the federal agency, the immigrants are mostly from the Central American country of Guatemala, and they are not part of the caravan with over 7,000 migrants still making its way to the United States.
Underscoring the importance of President Donald Trump’s border wall, the report notes that the area has become a hotbed for illegal crossings due to its “outdated border wall infrastructure.”
Far from resisting apprehension or attempting to slip into the country unnoticed, the lawbreakers “waded across the river” then immediately walked to the nearest law enforcement and “surrendered to agents after walking around vehicle barriers.”
Government statistics reveal that illegal immigrant apprehension is skyrocketing, likely due to increased numbers of illegal crossings motivated by President Trump’s booming economy. The Department of Homeland Security reports that illegal immigrant apprehensions in the Yuma, Arizona area are up 150 percent over last year’s numbers. Last year saw more than a 200 percent increase over the previous year.
The lack of border security in the Yuma area has made it a popular destination for illegal immigrants to cross to the United States on foot. According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the area only features obstacles that would prevent vehicles from crossing illegally, allowing pedestrians to cross unmolested and then gamble their odds with the court system after they are arrested in the United States.
Hostilities Explode As Armenia, Azerbaijan Fight Over Disputed Nagorno-Karabakh Region
Dozens have been killed.
Intense combat broke out between the military forces of Armenia and Azerbaijan over the weekend, with the two west Asian countries intensifying a conflict over the disputed territory known of Nagorno-Karabakh.
Reports indicate that more than thirty fighters between the two sides were killed over the weekend.
Nagorno-Karabakh’s (also known as Artsakh) pro-Armenian local government claimed that the Armenians had destroyed 20 UAV’s, 3 helicopters, and thirty tanks or fighting vehicles of the Azerbaijani armed forces.

The Armenian ministry of defense has confirmed that more than 200 of its personnel fighting in the conflict have been wounded. It’s possible casualties could explode over the week if Azerbaijan continues its attempt to conquer towns and villages administered by the Artsakh government.

The small territory is inhabited by a majority Armenian population, who wholly support the region’s integration into Armenia. Ethnic warfare over the area first erupted in 1988 as the two nations separated from the collapsing Soviet Union, and has flared up intermittently since then.
The region is largely internationally recognized as part of Azerbaijan, and Azeri attempts to assert sovereignty over the mountainous region have been met with fierce resistance from the local population before. The fighting exploded over the weekend when Azerbaijan attempted to move its military personnel into the area, and it appears that the latest round of fighting has been the most vicious so far.
The warfare escalated when Armenia accused Azerbaijan of deploying artillery and airstrikes against pro-Armenian fighters in the region, with Azerbaijan claiming it only used the weapons in response to Armenian attacks of the same variety.
Armenia is Christian, and Azerbaijan is Muslim. The former has conditional backing from the Russian Federation, while Azerbaijan is staunchly supported by neighboring Turkey. Many Armenians are staunch in their defense of the region as an Armenian territory, citing the legacy of the Ottoman Empire’s genocide of the Armenian population of Anatolia following World War I.
