China News Service, March 31. According to the "Central News Agency" report, on the 30th local time, US border officials said that in 2021, more than 1 million immigrants are expected to arrive at the US-Mexico border.

U.S. Border Patrol Deputy Director Ortiz said that the Border Patrol arrested about 100,000 immigrants in February, the highest record in a single month since mid-2019.
Usually between April and June, more migrants will try to cross the border.
Ortiz said: "We are beginning to see more people on some days, with more than 6,000 arrests. So I predict that our border patrol agents will encounter more than 1 million people in 2021."

The number of children that the facility currently accommodates has far exceeded the normal capacity. During the epidemic, the facility was only able to accommodate 250 people, and there are currently more than 4,100 children.Keywords:
