Last month, 33,335 people were caught crossing the southern border illegally, 7,259 more than in February, a 28% increase, the Border Patrol said.
Of those, 4,452 were members of families traveling together, 46% more than the month before. Another 4,240 were unaccompanied youth, 37% more than the previous month.
The number of family members caught crossing illegally has nearly tripled compared with this time last year, and the number of unaccompanied children has almost doubled, the figures show.
