Border Patrol leader says ‘caravan-equivalent numbers of migrants’ reach southwest border ‘every seven days’

Rodolfo Karisch, the U.S. Border Patrol chief of the Rio Grande Valley Sector, says every week he witnesses migrants reaching the U.S.-Mexico border in numbers similar to high-profile caravans of asylum-seekers from Central America.

 “In my thirty years as an agent, I have never witnessed the conditions we are currently facing on the southwest border,” Karisch testified Tuesday during a hearing before the Senate Homeland Security Committee.

“The fact is RGV is receiving caravan-equivalent numbers of migrants every seven days,” Karisch added, referencing his Rio Grande Valley sector.
