Unaccompanied Alien Children Apprehensions Fiscal Year 2016

Rate this Entry
Last month border patrol apprehended 4,240 unaccompanied children and 4,452 members of family units.

Via Customs and Border Protection:



March 2016 apprehensions by the U.S. Border Patrol were generally in line with seasonal trends we have observed in prior years. While these March apprehension numbers are higher than those from March 2015, they are significantly lower than those from March 2014. Of the overall 33,335 total Border Patrol apprehensions on the southwest border reported in March, 4,201 were unaccompanied children and 4,448 were members of family units traveling together. Total apprehensions in March 2016 increased by 28 percent compared to February 2016.

The Department of Homeland Security continues to closely monitor current migration trends and is working aggressively to address underlying causes and deter future increases in unauthorized migration, while ensuring that those with legitimate humanitarian claims are afforded the opportunity to seek protection. We also continue to support broader regional efforts to address the humanitarian situation in Central America.


As Secretary Johnson has said repeatedly, our borders are not open to illegal migration, and we will continue to enforce the immigration laws and secure our borders consistent with our priorities and values. At the same time, we will offer vulnerable populations in Central America an alternate and legal path to safety in the United States.
