“5-year-old boy from Guatemala abandoned by a human smuggler in Mexicali after his mom paid the smuggler. The boy had 2 numbers written on each of his arms and was taken to Yuma by 2 migrants who found him on the … way to cross illegally into Yuma,” Ventura reported.

Migrants continue to swarm the southern border, with large groups of women, children, unaccompanied minors and “single males running drugs” have been arriving at the Yuma sector, Ventura reported. Migrants have arrived from Cuba, Columbia, Peru and Venezuela, and even as far away as Russia, India and Afghanistan.

Agents have encountered a record breaking 239,416 migrants at the southern border in May, according to CBP. There was a 21% increase in unaccompanied children in May.
