    Illegal immigration in southwest doubled over past four months

    By Stephen Dinan - The Washington Times - Monday, September 11, 2017

    Illegal immigration across the southwest border has doubled in the last four months, according to new government data that suggests the early gains of President Trump’s tenure are wearing off.

    More than 30,000 illegal immigrants were nabbed in August, up 22 percent compared to July and up nearly 100 percent compared to April, when fewer than 16,000 illegal immigrants were arrested by the Border Patrol or stopped at ports of entry by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers.

    The numbers are still lower than they were a year before under Mr. Obama, but the gains Mr. Trump made in his first months in office are dissipating.

    Officials say the number of people caught is a rough yardstick for the total flow, so more apprehensions means more people are trying — and succeeding — in getting through.

    The spikes were apparent across a number of demographic sectors. Cubans, Haitians, illegal immigrant children traveling alone and families traveling together all posted increases.

    Likewise every sector along the U.S.-Mexico border saw increases in the number of illegal immigrants nabbed by agents.

    Officials took heart in the numbers still trailing the 2016 totals.

    “These numbers represent a 41 percent decrease as compared to August of 2016, and year-to-date totals for FY 2017 are 24 percent lower than the same period in FY 2016,” CBP said in a memo detailing the new numbers.

    The surge could add urgency to Mr. Trump’s call for border security to be attached to any new bill to legalize illegal immigrant Dreamers.

    That still sucks. We want troops on the border, this traffic stopped 100% by all means necessary, whatever it takes. 24% reduction is nothing in the scheme of it all. We want it all stopped. Now.

    This needs to be handed over to our Military and get that WALL built.

    They were given authorization to build the Alaskan Highway due to fear of Japanese invasion and they should be given authorization NOW to get down there and get it done!

    WE ARE BEING INVADED

    Damn right we are. An invasion is exactly what it is, the epitome of the "Trojan Horse".

    President Trump should have put those 4K troops on our border - not sent to Afghanistan.

    Our own country is where our interest and well being should be protected.

    The wall will not stop the loaded with illegals truck traffic; many have been in the news recently (at least the ones that got caught). Believe there is a direct highway route for trucks and apparently they are not checked for contents of trailer.

    Semi's from Mexico should not be allowed to be transported in our country.

    Unload them and load them up on US trucks.

    Was it Bush who allowed them to drive through? Another Globalist.

    gw opened the border wide - never saw a mexican up north till '03 and they continued to come in droves.

    trump dickering with daca & deporting mainly criminal illegals only encourages new crossers. Everify needs to happen asap.

    These growing number may be due to the new recent talks of "comprehensive immigration reform" and DACA (DREAMER) amnesty talk.

    Looks like the illegal aliens and their drug smugglers have figured out Trump was mostly talk about cracking down on illegal immigration and securing the borders. And yes, the new talk of immigration reform Amnesty legislation for DACA and more illegals is signalling the world America is wide open and vulnerable.
