U.S. lawmakers are getting briefed by the Border Patrol agents’ union on the status of the southern border immigrant surge. National Border Patrol Council president Brandon Judd met with members of Congress last week. Judd says the current immigrant surge is the largest he’s seen.

Judd says in March alone, over 170-thousand asylum-seeking immigrants crossed the southern border illegally after which they were apprehended by Border Patrol agents. Eighteen-thousand or so of that number were unaccompanied immigrant minors.
