Illegal immigrants aren’t only infiltrating the United States at the southern border.

Chief Patrol Agent Robert Garcia of the United States Border Patrol’s Swanton Sector indicates his agents have apprehended more than 6,100 persons in the last 11 months.

The apprehensions in the Vermont, New York and New Hampshire border sector are more than those in the last 10 years — combined.

Garcia shared photos of migrant groups traveling through the border region at night.

Garcia issued a memorandum to his superiors seeking a “quick turnaround” of agents to his sector in February, according to the New York Post.

The official described a phenomenon of mostly Mexican nationals entering the United States through Canada.

Border Patrol has resorted to asking for volunteers to report to the swarmed sector — after previously seeking volunteers for the southern border.
