Brian Hastings said last month he was worried about cartel tactics of crossing huge groups of migrants in remote areas.

But shortly after, another group of 360 migrants was spotted near the Mount Cristo Rey in Sunland Park, New Mexico.

Meanwhile another group 130 migrants at about 11:45 p.m.

But the total of migrants apprehended came to 1,800 with at least half entering in the El Paso Metropolitan area, according to officials.

El Paso Sector agents apprehended less than 11,000 illegal migrants during the first six months of Fiscal Year 2018.

But so far in this fiscal year, that number has soared to over 71,000.

“It is very clear that the cartels and their smugglers know the weaknesses in our laws,” Acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan said.

“They know that family units and unaccompanied children will be released with no consequences for their illegal entry.”

U.S. Border Patrol Chief Law Enforcement Operations Director Brian Hastings said last month he was worried about cartel tactics of crossing huge groups of migrants in remote areas.

“The resources that we’re pulling away from national security have a negative effect on law enforcement mission,” the operations director explained.

“Currently each day we’re pulling approximately 40 percent of our agents on the Southwest border, and diverting them specifically for the humanitarian need, that is to care for, transport and process family units and UACs.”

“Not only does this divert our resources, but as we’ve seen recently, smuggling organizations are utilizing these large groups as a diversion to enable the movement of smuggling of narcotics,” Hastings stated.

“Approximately 60 large groups so far this year have been encountered in remote locations which causes us particular concern because they’re generally the furthest away from our processing centers, medical services, contract transportation, and even our stations.”

In March, Border agents in Texas managed to capture over 430 illegal immigrants with the space of five minutes on Tuesday as two large groups of migrants flooded unsecured areas of the Southern Border.

Agents near the wall just west of Bowie High School in El Paso apprehended a group of 194 illegals around 2:45 a.m, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

Just five minutes later, agents snagged a second group of 245 illegal aliens near downtown El Paso.
