Yuma, Arizona saw an astonishing increase of 2,404.9% increase in migrants during the first two months of the fiscal year 2022 that began last October, compared to the same period last year.
That's according to government figures recently made public by the watchdog group, Judicial Watch.
Yuma is just one of many American border cities that has dealt with an historic influx of illegal aliens in the fiscal year 2021. Yuma is located in southwestern Arizona, and is situated around 10 miles from Mexico on the banks of the Colorado River.
By the end of the fiscal year in 2021, Yuma had also seen the largest increase in apprehensions compared to other border cities: 1,200.4%.
Judicial Watch also revealed that in 2021 eight of nine crossing stations along the border saw triple digit percentage increases in illegal immigrants, compared to the previous year.
So far, the 2022 fiscal year does not appear to be showing any improvement, as Yuma's mayor declared a local emergency in early December due to the humanitarian crisis created by the illegal border traffic.
