YUMA, Ariz. — More than 110 migrants from Central America are in federal custody after Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents say they climbed over a border wall near Yuma on Monday.

According to a tweet from CBP, a smuggler helped them climb over the wall by using a ladder.

Last week, CBP found 376 migrants in San Luis after agents said they dug under a border wall. CBP said 179 of them were children, including 30 unaccompanied minors.
