Eagle Pass, Texas — Del Rio Sector Border Patrol agents apprehended 1,772 migrants after they crossed the Rio Grande in a single day in Eagle Pass. The steady stream of migrants apprehended after crossing the river included one group numbering more than 500. On Thursday, the number of apprehensions exceeded any other single day total for the city according to the source.
A source operating under the umbrella of U.S. Customs and Border Protection told Breitbart Texas that Del Rio Sector agents lead the nation of late in apprehensions. The source said the increase in apprehensions is forcing the agency to deal with constant overcrowding at processing facilities. More than 2,000 migrants were arrested on Thursday throughout the Del Rio Sector — most chose to enter the United States in Eagle Pass.
The task of transporting the migrants from the apprehension point near the Rio Grande to a soft-sided processing center is stretching transportation resources to the breaking point. In addition, the source says the need to provide medical and humanitarian care along with processing the migrants mean most Border Patrol agents are not on routine field patrol, leaving the border wide open.
The CBP source, who is not authorized to speak to the media, told Breitbart Texas most of the encounters on Thursday were single adult migrants. In the largest group of migrants arrested, more than 400 of the 528 members of the migrant group were single adult males and females. The group was comprised of migrants from 14 different countries.
Nearly half of the group consisted of Venezuelan nationals. More than 150 migrants were from Cuba. More than 100 members of the groups were from Colombia, Peru, Nicaragua, Iran, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Chile, Honduras, Guatemala, Panama, and Mexico.
The source says the Border Patrol is seeing a flow of migrants from all parts of the world and has apprehended migrants in Eagle Pass from more than 100 unique countries this year. Arresting migrants from dozens of different countries each day has been the norm for the agency, according to the source.

Source Denies Report on Warriors 21-Year-Old Restricted Free Agent
Getty Nico Mannion, Warriors 2020 draftee
What’s next for Warriors restricted free agent Nico Mannion, the point guard who played at Arizona, was drafted by Golden State in the second round of the 2020 NBA draft and signed on to play in Italy last year? A report in BasketNews on Tuesday suggested that Mannion would be looking to sign an extension with his current team, Virtus Bologna, through 2025, but a source with knowledge of the situation tells Heavy Sports that is not happening.
“Not looking at an extension for Nico at this time,” the source said.
Mannion is signed with Virtus through this season, having agreed to a deal with the team last August. That deal has a clause that allows Mannion to leave for the NBA if he has an offer. The Warriors still have his rights, though it appears the team has moved on from having Mannion as part of its future—for now, at least.
NBA teams are able to make offers to Mannion, but the Warriors retain the right to match any deal.Tough Year for Mannion
Mannion has had a difficult year, after averaging 12.2 points in four games for the Italian national team in the Tokyo Olympics. He signed with some fanfare in Bologna, after turning down an opportunity to stick with the Warriors on a two-way deal. The opportunity in Italy appeared to be better for his long-term development.
But Mannion was ill with a developing intestinal infection upon his arrival with Virtus. Initially, it was thought he would be out for a short while but that turned into weeks as his condition got worse, and he suffered severe weight loss. Mannion missed training camp and had to build himself back up physically.
When he did, he was not able to play the role for Virtus that had been envisioned, and he
When he did, he was not able to play the role for Virtus that had been envisioned, and he averaged 9.4 points and 4.6 assists in 17 games, per ProBallers.com.NBA Teams Still Monitoring Mannion
Still, NBA personnel have been keeping their eye on Mannion and there is a strong chance he could wind up back in the league in the coming year—if not during the season, then perhaps next summer.
“He looked better playing in Italy than his numbers showed. There were some good reports on him. He will get another chance in the league but it is not going to be with Golden State, or it’s unlikely that happens soon,” one NBA GM told Heavy Sports.
The GM points out that the Warriors just drafted guard Ryan Rollins in the second round, after he averaged 18.9 points and 3.6 assists for Toledo as a sophomore. The Warriors also have interest in developing Mac McClung, the G League Rookie of the Year last season, as a point guard prospect. He averaged 13.4 points and 4.8 assists for the Warriors during the Las Vegas Summer League.
Should the Dubs be willing to part with Mannion, there could be suitors, especially among teams looking to start over with youth.
“If you’re a rebuilding team in the NBA though, he’s worth a look,” the GM said. “If you’re Houston or Indiana or Utah, he makes some sense to at least keep track of, maybe bring him in during the season.”
