Border agents down south have had their hands full. While reporting on 328 Chinese immigrants who have been caught so far this year, the Washington Times has also revealed that over 1,000 migrants are caught, each day, trying to get into America from Mexico, illegally.
This news comes during an article that discusses the Chinese migrants and how some people are worried about coronavirus coming to the United States as a result of the attempted illegal entry into America.
They focused the article on the 328 Chinese immigrants that were caught trying to cross the border of Mexico this year, all in an illegal way, and the data comes from Homeland Security, and the fears of an outbreak happening because of the illegal immigrants.
The Washington Times also reports that people from South Korea and Dominican Republic were arrested, with stress on the Dominican because of coronavirus being found there.
Three other people from South Korea — another country with rapidly spreading cases — have also been arrested at the border, as have 122 people from the Dominican Republican, where the coronavirus has now been detected.
All told, more than 1,000 migrants a day are caught attempting to sneak in illegally from Mexico, which detected its first case last week, and since has identified five others.
So not only are the border agents busy fighting against illegal immigration, they're also potentially at risk of coronavirus.
Being in or around that many people at a time where some of the country is in fear of an outbreak must be mind-bending for the agents.
