Border Apprehension Record set in Rio Grande Valley
Border apprehensions in the Rio Grande Valley have broken the annual record with two months left to go.

According to Conservative Review:

With two months still left in this fiscal year, the Rio Grande Valley (RGV) border sector has already set an all-time annual record for apprehensions at the border. According to a source in Border Patrol, this week, the total apprehensions in the RGV passed 301,000. That is an all-time record for this sector since Border Patrol began collecting records. The previous record was in 2014 during the first Central American migration, mainly of unaccompanied minors. 256K were apprehended in 2014 and 244k in 1997, the previous records for this sector.

Where is Congress? On vacation.

Earlier today, Rep. Chip Roy tweeted out this fact:


Why is Roy the only Texas official who actually feels a sense of urgency with record illegal immigration pouring into his state? Where are the state’s two senators? Why are they not holding up the budget deal for a better agreement on border wall funding and ICE detention and removal funding?

The border in the Rio Grande Valley makes up around 320 miles of the border.
