Customs and Border Protection said Wednesday that agents arrested the woman November 26 after she entered the country illegally near Imperial Beach, California, across the border from Tijuana, Mexico. More than 3,600 people were apprehended in the month of October.

This problem, according to McAleenan, stems from weak immigration laws in the US leading migrant families to believe that they cross the border when they don't have valid asylum claims.
