Other Than The 91 Illegal Immigrants Captured Today, The Arizona Border is Totally Secure

Irony pointed out by Papa Todd
Day in and day out, we are told that the border is more secure than any time since the Battle of Thermopylae.  Except for today that is…
Border Patrol agents apprehended an unusually large group of illegal immigrants Tuesday night 15 miles south of Ajo, authorities said.
Agents using a radar-based surveillance system found 90 men and a woman in the Arizona desert, said Agent Colleen Agle, a spokeswoman for Border Patrol Tucson sector.
“We don’t typically see groups this size,” Agle said. “Our technology is so advanced it’s hard to go undetected, especially a group that big.”
The group was found walking north about 7:45 p.m. Tuesday, Agle said. All 91 illegal immigrants were from Mexico, according to Border Patrol.
The group was found with the help of members of Operation Trident, which uses resources from the National Park Service and U.S. Fish and Wildlife on joint patrols, the agency said.
This story then begs then question, if 91 illegals is an “unusually large group”, then what would be considered an “average” round-up on the typical Border Patrol day?  25 a day?  40 a day?
