Sex offenders, gang members, wanted felons and unaccompanied children as young as 2 years old are among hundreds of illegal immigrants flooding into the United States near El Paso, Texas, where Border Patrol agents arrested about 800 in the last 24 hours alone.
A group of 112 migrants were taken into custody after approaching the border wall near downtown around midnight, about the same time another 252 were apprehended near a local high school, CBS4 reports.
Within 24-hours about 800 migrants presented themselves at the border in El Paso. Border Patrol agents say some criminals used the cover of the large group to try and sneak into the U.S.

The rush continued through Wednesday with smaller groups scuttling through neighborhoods, jumping highways, and turning themselves in at the border wall. Most of the migrants are coming from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador and arrive at the U.S. border exhausted, with little food or water, many with young children.
“It has been a constant flow of people,” supervisory U.S. Border Patrol agent Joe Romero said. “So far it’s been a really busy day.”
