    Arrest numbers signal 9 percent jump in illegal immigration in 2012

    By Stephen Dinan

    Tuesday, January 29, 2013

    Mr. Obama is expected to use his Las Vegas speech to embrace much of the bipartisan framework announced Monday by eight senators that would grant immediate legal status to all illegal immigrants, but withhold green cards until the border is secured. Green cards, signifying legal permanent residency, are the key interim step before getting citizenship.

    Politico reported Tuesday that Mr. Obama will agree with most of the framework, but will balk at waiting for border security to be guaranteed before issuing green cards.

    Border security has been among the thorniest issues of the immigration debate.

    In 2007, the Senate’s last effort to pass a legalization bill failed after voters flooded the Capitol switchboard with calls insisting that Congress first work to secure the borders.

    President Bush and Congress boosted manpower and technology on the border, and the number of apprehensions — and, presumably, illegal crossings — dropped dramatically.

    In fiscal year 2005 the Border Patrol made 1,1717,396 arrests along the southwest border; it made 1,071,972 arrests in 2006; 858,638 arrests in 2007; 705,005 arrests in 2008; 540,865 in 2009; 447,731 in 2010; and 327,577 in 2011.

    A Government Accountability Office report earlier this month detailed some of the Border Patrol’s internal calculations about how many illegal crossers it misses, and the report said about 40 percent of would-be illegal immigrants get away. That rate has held consistent over time.

    But Glenn Spencer, head of American Border Patrol, a private citizens group that tracks border crossings, said according to their own estimates, the Border Patrol only catches about 30 percent of illegal crossers.

    If true, that would mean more than 800,000 illegal immigrants crossed without being apprehended last year.

    We have immigration laws that just need to be enforced.

    So this negates the major pro-amnesty talking point that we can have amnesty because illegal immigration is down.

    Tell the DHS to release the FY2012 Border Apprehension Numbers -- which have increased.

    They are three months overdue

    Forums for Justice - government of the people, by the people, for the people - On behalf of, we, the people http://bit.ly/V0P3eQ

    Maybe they just did ... been pushing really hard for two months ..... it has been a long slog ... with literally 1,000's of emails, including multiple emails to all major newspapers, all of Congress, tweets, facebook posts, ad infinitum.

    from the article:

    Even as President Obama travels to Las Vegas Tuesday to call for legalizing illegal immigrants, the latest numbers from the U.S. Border Patrol suggest that the flow across the nation’s southwest border jumped by 9 percent last year.

    The Border Patrol made 356,873 arrests along the U.S.-Mexico border in fiscal year 2012, up from 327,577 in 2011, according to figures obtained by the Associated Press and confirmed by The Washington Times. Border Patrol officials estimate that apprehensions are a good proxy for illegal crossings, so when the numbers go up, it means that the flow of illegal immigrants is going up as well.

    just emailed DHS/CBP asking if they have officially released the end of the fiscal year (FY2012) numbers

    which aren't yet shown on their website

    2012 ... WAY OVERDUE ...When is the DHS going to release the FY2012 Border Apprehension numbers?

    The above numbers reflect all border apprehensions, not just the Southwest border.

    No response yet from the DHS/CBP in Washington DC; their releasing the FY2012 Southwest Border Apprehensions number doesn't at all suffice; wanting to see the spreadsheet of the monthly apprehensions in all national sectors for FY2012, and then the monthly apprehensions in all national sectors for Oct., Nov. Dec., and soon Jan. for FY2013 http://bit.ly/V0P3eQ
