The number of migrants apprehended illegally entering the United States via the Southwest border continued to rise in November, according to data released Thursday by U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

Last month, Border Patrol apprehended a daily average of nearly 1,574 border crossers — or a total of 47,214 — attempting to enter the country illegally. Since July, the number of attempted illegal border crossings has been on the rise, on top of already elevated numbers. November’s totals were the highest seen at the U.S.-Mexico border since June 2014, when 57,862 migrants were apprehended illegally crossing into the U.S.

Included in the data was a record high 15,573 “family units” (or adults traveling with children) intercepted at the border — 2,455 more than the month prior. November’s family unit levels were also 140.7 percent higher than November of last year, and 544.8 percent higher than November of 2014. Indeed, the total number of family units apprehended during the first two months of this fiscal year 28,691 family units has dwarfed both Fiscal Year 2013 when just 14,855 family units were apprehended over that entire year.
