Border Patrol in the El Paso area has continued to work diligently to solve the illegal migration problem. Over 104,000 family unit apprehensions have been made since January. This is a staggering number considering the number for the same period in 2018 was only 4,733 apprehensions. This is a rise of over 2,100 percent.
This is a problem for the El Paso community and the hardworking men and women of the United States Border Patrol. This number is also indicative of greater issues across the entire Mexican border. This border crisis has continued for far too long and we need to support the effort to take back our security. This security is second to none as it will allow us to live prosperous and with extreme safety.
“The border security threats remain. In addition to the family unit aliens and unaccompanied children we’re catching, we continue to catch criminals, pedophiles, people with contagious diseases,”-Aaron Hull, Chief Border Patrol Agent
Hull went on to explain how children are not able to stay with their families and the danger that surrounds migrant children is immense. The amount of criminals, pedophiles and diseased that are entering our country illegally is continuing to rise and posing as a major threat to our culture. We are in danger of being overtaken by people that are cheating the system to enter our amazing nation.
The border crisis has gone on too long and we must stand for our values and support the people that protect our nation! We must keep working to secure the southern border and fight against illegal immigration!
