“According to a source within U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the constant flow of migrants into the Tucson Border Patrol Sector has quickly depleted CBP resources in the area,” Clark wrote. “The sector, according to the source, is detaining more than 4,000 migrants in holding facilities designed to detain 2,669.”

The Tucson Sector continues to lead the nine southwest border sectors with the apprehension of nearly 119,000 migrants during October and November, Breitbart reported.
