A record increase in the number of migrants arrested across the US-Southwest border with Mexico last May, for the fourth month in a row, despite US administration efforts to curb immigration. Number of detainees inclined 44 percent at Mexican border from SPLY, a new US survey showed.

Monthly data released by the US Border Control Agency showed an increase of 84,542 members of cross-border families, up 44 percent from last April, to 58,724 same period last year (SPLY).

The arrests have caused confusion in border control officials to counter this significant increase and take action on them in terms of recording, medically examining and placing them in detention centers.

The US Border Control Agency has normally held between 4,000 and 6,000 people at its southern border posts, but now has more than 19,000 people waiting to open new centers to hold more migrants across the country.

The arrests come as officials from Mexico meet in Washington with members of the US administration, Donald Trump, to negotiate a way out of America’s threats to impose high customs duties on Mexico for failing to stem the flow of Central Americans across its border.

The Mexican foreign minister said at a news conference in Washington that his country was making every effort to increase the number of detainees from Central America and allow more asylum, and Mexico expects to prevent 250,000 immigrants from reaching the United States in 2019.
