Sources told “Reuters” that the US authorities detained about 100 thousand immigrants on the border with Mexico last February, which is considered a record number since 2006.

The sources pointed out that the number of immigrants rose to about 100 thousand people in February than more than 78 thousand people in January.

According to official statistics, 4,500 immigrants were arrested within one day last Wednesday, indicating the possibility of a new record number being recorded this March.

The administration of the new US President, Joe Biden, had announced its intention to abandon previous restrictions imposed by former President Donald Trump on the entry of immigrants to the United States, as limiting immigration and building a wall on the border with Mexico were among Trump’s most prominent pledges in his first election campaign.
