On Wednesday, the Border Patrol arrested 247 people, mostly from Central America, who turned themselves in to agents in a highly remote part of New Mexico, where authorities have found 25 groups of more than 100 people since October.

"The United States Border Patrol is constantly building intelligence in order to combat these trafficking organizations that are constantly targeting them and gaining intelligence in order to apprehend them in the future", said Jose Garibay, Yuma Sector Border Patrol public information officer.

The largest single group of asylum-seekers to be taken into custody in the US reportedly tunneled beneath a section of the border wall outside Yuma, Arizona. It included 30 so-called unaccompanied minors, or children traveling without their parents.

During Monday's apprehension, only three agents were patrolling a 26-mile stretch of the border.

Deadlock over the demand led to the partial federal government shutdown, which entered its 28th day on Friday and is now the longest in USA history.
US President Donald Trump has said the situation at the US-Mexican border a "humanitarian crisis" and urged Democrats to approve funding for tightening border security.
On Wednesday, almost 250 immigrants were taken into custody at the same crossing after turning themselves in to authorities.
But while there has been a surge in the number of Central Americans seeking asylum in the USA in recent months, the number of arrests remains low by historical standards.
