For the second time in barely more than a month, Border Patrol agents in the San Diego Sector apprehended a large group of migrants from countries far from Mexico and Central America.

Officials said the group of 100 migrants was apprehended around 2 a.m. on Tuesday attempting to climb over the fence east of Border Field State Park.

The group consisted of 79 single adults, 18 family members and three unaccompanied minors from 12 countries: Somalia, India, Cameroon, Senegal, Mauritania, Afghanistan, Ethiopia, Pakistan, Burkina Faso, Brazil, Guinea and Tobago.

Few of the migrants spoke Spanish, forcing the Border Patrol to seek translation assistance.

In two separate incidents in late July, a total 224 people were detained for crossing into the United States near Imperial Beach. Most migrants in those groups were from Brazil.

Of the 145,618 migrants apprehended in San Diego Sector in the 2022 fiscal year, 44,444 consisted of migrants coming from countries other than Mexico, according to a Customs and Border Protection statement.
