Trump's Border Squad Increases Apprehensions

The apprehension number at the U.S.-Mexico border for August are in, and they are big. Border Patrol apprehended over 40,000 illegal crossers in the month of August.

According to the Washington Examiner:

Apprehensions of people attempting to illegally enter the United States from Mexico spiked in August after a brief downturn earlier this summer, according to government data released Wednesday afternoon.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers and Border Patrol agents arrested or turned back 46,560 people between and at ports of entry on the southwest border last month.

Of that number, 37,544 were people who went around official checkpoints and were caught unlawfully in the U.S. shortly after trespassing.

Slightly more than 40,000 people were either apprehended between or turned away at ports of entry in July, down from springtime totals of more than 50,000 each month.

Border crossings have increased reportedly by 20 percent in 2018, but it looks like border patrol is doing all they can to protect America and provide a safe and secure border.
