Record number of migrants held


Washington – Apprehensi­ons of undocument­ed immigrants at the US border with Mexico rose to a fresh 15-year high in April, as the Biden administra­tion failed to deter migrants, official data showed.

US Customs and Border Protection reported it had interdicte­d 178 622 people trying to enter the United States without official immigratio­n papers last month, – up more than 5 000 from March’s high numbers.
