Many things grow over time, there is nothing unusual about that. But sometimes growth is a bad thing, and when that growth reaches unprecedented proportions there are definitely consequences.
Unfortunately, dangerous growth is exactly what’s happening at the U.S.-Mexico border. Border Patrol officials have now announced that illegal migrant apprehension has gone up 374%, just from last year.
“The Border Patrol is facing an unprecedented humanitarian and border security crisis,” Brian Hastings who is the U.S. Border Patrol Chief Law Enforcement Director shared with reporters. “We’ve arrived at the breaking point.”
Agents report apprehending 189,584 Family Unit Aliens in the first six months of Fiscal Year 2018, monumental more than the 39,975 FMUA’s apprehend the same time last Fiscal Year.
These numbers continue to prove that President Trump has been right all along and that there is an overwhelming national emergency at the border that is being ignored at our peril.
