In January there is a massive slowdown in the number of migrants who were caught at the US-Mexico borders. The implementation of new restrictions imposed by US President Biden is one factor that has led to a decrease in the number of arrests at the borders.

In the month of January, there were an average of 4000 people arrested by the US Patrol team. This is confirmed by the 3 US officials. But at the same time, they said that it is very low compared to the week before Christmas. At that time the average is 7,400 per day.

This number of people who got arrested at the border could be the lowest since February 2021. But it is hard to predict whether this trend will continue throughout the month! However this month the decline followed another record month of speculation.
