This means nothing. Those crimigrants specifically come here wanting to be apprehended by our joke of border agents, just so they can utter the magic word "asylum." Then they get entered into our system of freebies.
Whomever is publicizing these numbers of "apprehensions" is doing so, so that we are lulled into a false sense of security. "Oh, look, something is actually being done!" No. We're being told something is being done so that we think our votes weren't wasted.
As posted above. We're being played. Rome is burning. Nero is playing the fiddle.
Im sure those loopoles just magically appeared in the US Code of law over the last 75 years or so.
POTUS needs to secure our borders with military troops with guns and bullets. The bullshit has gone on long enough.
