Bill Melugin from FOX News reported on Sunday that the US border partol apprehended over 20,000 illegal aliens at the Del Rio Crossing in Texas in just one week.
That is enough people to fill up the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Chief Border Patrol Agent Brian Hastings tweeted this out Sunday afternoon.
It's the hottest part of the summer and apprehensions are skyrocketing! #USBP Apprehensions surpassed the 1-million milestone in June.

All of these individuals were released inside the US mainland. They were transported across the country and are given money and benefits after they cross into the United States.
This is just at one border crossing that is seeing these numbers!
