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.

Additionally, as the ongoing government shutdown closes in on a month, the Trump administration is warning of an incoming caravan of 1,300 people traveling from El Salvador.
