The Border Patrol made 164,973 apprehensions of undocumented immigrants in February of this year, an increase of 6% compared to the previous month and 73% over February 2021, the Bureau of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reported Tuesday.

The federal agency explained that the large number of removals during the pandemic has contributed to a higher than the usual number of migrants attempting multiple border crossings.

The number of undocumented immigrants apprehended by CBP nationwide in February was 116,678, an increase of 2% over apprehensions in January.

Thirty percent of the apprehensions involved a person who had already been apprehended at least once in the previous 12 months, which compares to an average rate of a 14 percent recapture between fiscal 2014 and 2019.

At least 126,150 apprehensions (76%) involved adults making the crossing unaccompanied, marking an 11% increase over January, CBP added.

And at least 91,500 apprehensions (55% of the total) led to expedited removal proceedings under Title 42.
