CBP said an uninjured passenger was released by Mexican authorities and the officer who shot the driver wasn't injured.
Authorities closed the DeConcini Port of Entry near Nogales after a man was shot attempting to run over a border patrol agent on Thursday night.
The Border Patrol has encountered groups of at least 100 people 60 times since October 1, compared to 13 during the entire 2018 fiscal year and two in the 2017 fiscal year, officials said. It was the second straight monthly decline, though arrests typically fall from December to January.More news: 'The Walking Dead': Danai Gurira Leaving as Michonne in Season 10

CBP officers and Mexican law enforcement and military personnel continue to make large seizures of methamphetamine, and according to Breitbart News law enforcement sources, these drugs come from Mexican drug cartels who deployed super-drug labs enabling mass-production of product for the US market and ever-expanding local Mexico market distribution market.
Families and children traveling alone accounted for about 6 of every 10 stopped, mostly from Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras.
The group illegally entered the country through an area where there is a vehicle barrier created to prevent such crossings. "They don't have them all the time and they only do that for that reason so nobody takes any weapons into Mexico or money".
