A four year-old child was caught crossing into the the United States this weekend alone.
Breitbart Texas witnessed the apprehension of 11 unaccompanied minors in the past 24-hours. The apprehensions occurred near ground zero of the current border crisis as the minors turned themselves in to U.S. Border Patrol agents less than a quarter-mile from the Rio Grande River. The minors ranged from about four to 17-years-of-age.
Breitbart Texas came upon the scene of two Border Patrol agents gathering identifying information from the minors who had just entered the United States illegally. The agents were dispatched to the dirt road just east of the Anzalduas International Bridge after cameras detected the children walking on the road.

One of the agents commented that he had been working this sector for many years and has never seen anything like this flood of minors. Another agent said he had recently been assigned temporary duty to this sector from another sector in Texas because of the volume of illegal crossings in the Rio Grande Sector.
There are over 600 Border Patrol agents working in the Rio Grande Sector at this time, according to a Border Patrol agent.
