Feds Say Arrests of Illegal Immigrants Are Down, But Problems Still Remain.
They used to catch 50,000 a day now they are only catching 49,000 a day.

There all here, going into Walmart in my hometown of Decatur AL, brings back memories of when I was stationed in Central America.
Maybe it’s because all those that have the means and the will to cross the border illegally are already here? The cross border flood was bound to subside at some point. Now how to we get them to flood back the other way?

Of course arrests of illegals are/is down ...the Feds are not enforcing....as per the orders of idiots Napolitano and Jack Squat POTUS. =.=

Maybe if they arrest MORE of them the magnitude of the problem will go DOWN instead of remaining the same!!!
If they can't find any to arrest they should visit any large vegetable or fruit grower when the crops are in.
Or check out the crowds malingering around the contractor exit at any Home Depot.

True, more time driving the roads a 100 miles away from the Border, and the catch and release programs goes on.
I would say they are lying. Just what would make the number of illegals coming over drop? They didn’t, maybe they aren’t arresting as many but that doesn’t mean the number coming here decreased, it just means the feds aren’t doing their job.

I do think the numbers of crossers is down from past years, but I am only speaking for my area. The issue I see now is many of the crossers we do have are more dangerous- hard core cartel members that are determined to get their goods- be they people or drugs or both across at any cost. Ruthless and very scary. Just using numbers doesn’t give anyone the real picture. I know I have more fear now than I have ever had in the last 40 or so years I have lived on the border.
