    Border Patrol caught 110,000 illegal immigrants in Southern California in 2011

    Nearly 110,000 people were caught trying to cross the border illegally through Southern California this year, U.S. Customs and Border Patrol said Monday.

    That’s a 23 percent drop from last year.
    The federal agency also seized more than 158 tons of narcotics, according to the year-end statistics released Monday.
    That’s a 48 percent increase over last year.
    The Southern California data is consistent with national data that drug seizures are climbing and arrests of illegal immigrants is dropping, said Border Patrol’s San Diego Sector Chief Patrol Agent Paul Beeson.
    The Southern California data looks at the Office of Field Operations in San Diego as well as the Border Patrol’s El Sentro and San Diego sectors.
    “These numbers tell the story of the impressive job that our officers, agents, and others in San Diego accomplish everyday,” said Chris Maston, Director of Field Operations for CBP in San Diego.
    “Part of how we accomplish this is by using layered systems to identify high-risk passengers and cargo for examination, compressing the amount of questionable passengers and cargo which allows officers to focus on those deemed high-risk.”
    The El Centro-based sector covers Riverside and Imperial counties and is one of two sectors that protect the U.S.-Mexico border.
    The agents there — who are among 1,260 employees — went on eight rescue missions this year, rescuing 28 people. That’s down from 20 missions last year.
