(Politico) – More non-Mexicans were apprehended at the U.S. southern border than Mexicans this year for the first time since records have been collected, according to a new study.

According to a Pew Research Center study released Wednesday, 229,000 Mexicans were stopped crossing the border in 2104, while 257,000 non-Mexicans were stopped by the Border Patrol. Overall, the total number of people apprehended by the Border Patrol is up 16 percent over the past year.

Compare these numbers to 2007, when 809,000 Mexicans and just 68,000 non-Mexicans crossed the U.S. southern border.
