Cited by the newspaper El Mundo, the figures indicate that since June, the registration of Salvadoran families began to increase.
CBP stated that in June they found 72,733 families at the borders while they were trying to enter the United States irregularly, but by August, the figure increased to 136,674.
The forecasts of U.S. authorities indicate that by the end of fiscal year 2023 there were more than 141,000, but as of July 2023, there was an increase from 4,068 to 7,747 in September, despite the fact that the government here maintains there is a reduction in the number of immigrants and that more and more Salvadorans want to return to the country.
According to El Mundo, this change in the migratory flow was confirmed by the head of the Border Patrol for the Rio Grande Valley sector, Gloria Chavez, who last week confirmed the increase in the number of families crossing into the United States irregularly.
“Last year it was adults that we were detaining, adult men, women, and not so many families. Later, when Title 42 was lifted, the migration of adults was significantly reduced and families began to increase here,” Chavez explained in a press conference for Central American journalists.
