The Border Patrol said that it caught more than 400 illegal immigrants trying to break into the U.S. in El Paso, Texas, during one five-minute span Tuesday morning.

The migrants came in two separate mini-caravans. One, with 194 people, was found at 2:45 a.m. after they came across the border wall near a local high school. Five minutes later a group of 252 people was nabbed in downtown El Paso.


President Trump’s United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) not only replaces and modernizes the decades-old NAFTA—it’s “chock full of provisions that will help American small businesses boost exports and safeguard their intellectual property,” writes Karen Kerrigan, president of the Small Business & Entrepreneurship Council, in the Press and Journal. “Congress needs to approve USMCA as soon as possible.”
