Border apprehensions keep rising in Yuma

YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - Border Patrol agents in Yuma continue to apprehend more people at the border.

Agents say they apprehended 74 undocumented immigrants early Monday morning. Another group of 51 people was also found earlier. In April, they have found 13 groups of more than 50 undocumented immigrants in Yuma.

This year, Yuma Sector agents have apprehended 1,460 unaccompanied children. Agents say processing children take on the role of a parent, especially to those who cross the border alone.
