REPORT: Family Arrivals at US-Mexico Border Surge in August
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by KNAU.ORG:
More than 16,000 families were apprehended at the border in August, authorities said Wednesday, a dramatic increase from previous months that the Trump administration blamed on legal loopholes and a reversal of a widely denounced policy that separated parents and children at the border.
The number of family arrivals reached 15,955, a sharp increase from July that Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan said was one of the highest on record. Families accounted for more than one-third people who were stopped at the border.
The article goes on to state the following:
He called the increase “a direct response to gaps in the legal framework,” adding, “we’re not surprised by it, but it’s been a very stark trend.”
The arrest tally is also the latest reminder of how border crossings have shifted over the last decade from predominantly Mexican men to Central American families and children.

The number of family arrivals reached nearly 16,000 in August, a sharp increase from July.
