"These groups, like many others before, are comprised primarily of Central American families and unaccompanied juveniles", said an official statement from US Customs and Border Protection.

In the past three months, ICE has released 107,000 migrant family members, Asher said.

In February, U.S. authorities detained more than 76,000 unauthorized border-crossers, and Homeland Security Security Kirstjen Nielsen said she expects almost 100,000 migrants will attempt to enter the country this month.

"Our interior arrests have been affected because I've had to redirect to the priority, as a nation, in addressing what has been occurring and continues to occur at an alarming rate at the border", she added.

Yet deportations actually increased, from 60,572 to 66,549. At about the same time agents working further east were processing a group of 252 aliens apprehended at the border just west of Bowie High School.

And those agencies are in the middle of an unprecedented surge as children and families flock to the US from Central America.

Border Patrol agents of the Laredo Sector foiled an alleged human smuggling attempt near Hebbronville. "There is a real-life humanitarian and security catastrophe", Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said Monday during a speech at George Washington University.

ICE and CBP aren't prepared for those kinds of numbers.

On Tuesday, the CBP released a statement saying that a 40-year-old Mexican man had died while in its custody, the fourth death under the agency's watch in recent months.

Central American immigrant families. Of those caught in 2017, 98 percent are still in the US, officials say.

Annunciation House said it already has received more than 600 migrants each day this week from USA immigration authorities.

Total arrests are down 12% compared with past year, according to data released by ICE on Thursday. "They're murderers, and you, as a club, should be more conscious of the rest of the students on this campus".

USA immigration authorities detained and processed Padilla and her son for three days and released them to Annunciation House.

President Trump and other immigration hard-liners argue that migrants who are released into the populace nearly universally skip their court dates.

Yet officials at the National ICE Council, the labor union for ICE officers, warned in a letter to Mr. Trump this month that they're being forced to oversee a massive "catch-and-release" operation at the border.

The declining arrest numbers are a major change from the initial phase of the Trump presidency, when interior arrests rose by more than 20 percent and ICE officials said immigration violators "should look over your shoulder" in fear of arrest.

The agency said Border Patrol agents had apprehended the man near the Bridge of the Americas in El Paso "for illegal re-entry" after a prior deportation in the predawn hours of March 17.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the 50 immigrants released Tuesday were sent to Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley, and the 200 immigrants set to be released Wednesday will also be sent to Catholic Charities' local respite center.
