Shortly after Democratic New York City Mayor Eric Adams complained he could not handle 10,000 migrants a month, a reporter showed him that the situation is much worse at the southern border.

“NYC Mayor Eric Adams says NYC cannot handle 10,000 migrants per month,” FOX News national correspondent Bill Melugin wrote on X (formerly known as Twitter) Monday.

“Border Patrol’s Tucson, AZ sector just had almost 11,000 in one *week*,” Melugin continued. “And that’s just one of nine sectors along the southern border. Sanctuary cities get a tiny fraction of what’s coming across border.”

The journalist cited official statistics from Chief Patrol Agent of the U.S. Border Patrol’s Tucson Sector John R. Modlin.

In addition to 10,700 apprehensions, the border patrol chief also recorded 526 Rescues, nine human smuggling events, 5 narcotics events and 5 firearms seized for the week ending September 8.

Modlin’s X bio says he is responsible for “leading 3,600 agents and professional staff.”
