BORDER ARRESTS AT LOWEST LEVEL IN OVER 30 YEARS

Rate this Entry

The Washington Post reports on data released from the Border Patrol. Among the findings:

- The number of Border Patrol agents has more than doubled from 9,000 in 2001 to 20,000 this year
- 626 miles of the border with Mexico are now covered by fencing and vehicle barriers which is about half of the planned coverage on the 2000 mile border.
- Border arrests are down from nearly 1.75 million in 2000 to 723,000 over the past year

While the economy obviously plays a role, the dramatic uptick in enforcement sure is playing a role and Senator Schumer's contention that we can make a credible claim that real enforcement is occurring is truthful .

    Greg,

    I just came across this article in the LA Times:

    They apparently now arrest people in the courtroom and deport them.
