Mapping Where Migrants Were Apprehended At The Border The Most

Last week, U.S. Border Patrol agents fired tear gas on migrants approaching the San Diego section of the Southwest border in Tijuana.President Trump has vowed not to let the thousands of migrants currently at the border apply for asylum in the United States, forcing Mexico to deal with how to shelter the asylum seekers creating a potential humanitarian crisis.

As Statista’s Sarah Feldman points out, Mexican President-López Obrador takes office with tensions at the U.S. Mexico border being one of the first crises that he will.

According to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency, over 300,000 migrants were apprehended at the Southwest border during the fiscal year 2018.
