WATCH: 376 Migrants Cross Border into Arizona, Nearly Half of Them Children

A group of 376 Central American migrants illegally entered into the U.S. into Yuma, Ariz., on Monday, reportedly the largest group of migrants to ever tunnel into the country. The migrants burrowed through to the U.S. via seven passages dug under border fencing and then turned themselves in to U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

CBP Arizona tweeted the arrival of the migrants on Thursday.

ABC News reported that 179 of the migrants were children, including more than 30 who were unaccompanied by a relative.
