Illegal immigration along U.S.-Mexico border surged 230 percent in April compared to last year, according to new numbers released Thursday that experts said expose major loopholes in American immigration law...Perhaps 75 percent of all migrants caught by Border Patrol agents are given catch and release, said Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, which represents line agents.

Why hasn’t this been addressed? It was a major campaign issue.
Nothing but talk from Sessions about coming down hard on immigration law violators. No action, no results. The law breakers MUST BE STOPPED...especially in Mexifornia.
Why is catch and release still there!
Did Trump win or not ?
Its been two years .
I am sick of excuses !
Yes, but last April illegal immigration had dropped to very low numbers.
This flow may still be less than normal.
These numbers aren't what we want to see, but the traditional 1 to 2 million crossings per year, are still way over these numbers.
We're looking at roughly half a million people. That's anywhere from 25 to 50% as high as figures were running for years on end.

Mitch! Paul! Get off your GD ass, and get this funded like yesterday!
We’ve surrendered our country to the barbarous horde.
Our descendants will look back and hate us for not having the courage to do what was necessary to stop this invasion while we still had the chance.
Trump needs to nail Mexico for this———
One earlier report indicated some 100 ***hole countries gather at the Mexican/US border to enter illegally.....aiming to ride the lucrative US gravy train.
Dollars to donuts, Mexico is collecting fees for allowing their border to be used.......these federales dont do nothing for nothing.
What’s in it for me? That’s the name of the latino game.
No doubt this is why Trump chewed Nielsen out.
REFERENCE The Federal ID that Pays Illegal Aliens Billions -——November 28, 2011
......a recent analysis entitled, Treasury Department Says Illegal Aliens Collection Billions in Tax Credits, revealed that according to the Department of Treasurys Inspector General, more than $4.2 billion in additional child credits were paid out in 2010 to illegal immigrants. In 2005, the pay outs totaled $924 million. This program allows low income earners to claim a $1,000 per child credit. Some name children they do not have.......that are usually “back home” or borrowing children’s names from a co-conspirator.
EITC claims-—can run up to over $3000 per claim. $20 billion is estimated to have been paid out to these cunning “impoverished” illegals. Most of them are collecting over and over again-——using multiple identities-——falsifying apps-—claiming children they do not have and/or falsely stating kids are back in their homelands.
I don't want to hear it. There are still forty million illegal invaders in this country, who are:
1. Undercutting wages and stealing our jobs.
2. Sucking down welfare benefits meant for Americans,
3. Flooding our hospitals, jails, and schools.
4. Taking housing away from the rightful citizens.
5. Colonizing our country and gaining political power.
Not only should there be a complete halt to illegal immigration, we should be deporting tens of thousands of them per day.
Anything less is national suicide.
I agree with that, and I want the wall built yesterday.
All I am saying, is that this headline is very misleading.
A lot of folks will look at that and think we’re no better off than before Trump.
No, were 50 to 75% better off than before Trump, concerning flow.
This is an attempt to demoralize Trump supporters.
We both know what needs to be done, but we shouldn’t let them game us.
I’m still sticking with 30 million, but I wouldn’t be shocked to find out it’s 40 million or more.
They needn't have bothered. i'm already demoralized by the tepid response of this country to the ongoing invasion and colonization.
We ought to be on a war footing with this problem. It's that serious of a threat. Instead, we're 'managing the decline.'
We're committing national suicide.
I just pointed out to you that we have reduced the flow by 50 to 75%. To this you respond that we have had a tepid response.
Do you think any other president would have done better? We have already seen a massive improvement. We are going to see a lot more.
Under George Bush we had upwards of two million illegals coming over every year. One nine month period alone, they apprehended over 900,000 illegals crossing the border in one sector alone. To put that into perspective that’s about a 1 million a year rate in that on sector.
In addition, the INS agents in those days stated as a matter of record, that they realized they only stopped about 10 to 15% of the illegals crossing the border. If 1 million was 10%, that means nine million were coming across, by their own estimation. I’ve never agreed with that high a rate estimation, but it was very clear we had no idea how many millions were coming across.
We have seen an amazing improvement, and we are seeing inland enforcement and employer actions that will severely impact the ability for illegals to find work here.
The wall is coming. Self-deportations are coming.
This wasn’t going to be ended overnight. It’s taking some time, but we are making headway.
This headline made it sound like there are about 200% plus more illegals coming across the border than traditionally, and that is a bald faced lie, by inference.
It is insane. So 75% are let into the US that are caught. How can we stop this invasion? And can’t we stop them BEFORE getting over the border?
Congress won’t pay for it.
The problem has ALWAYS been that Congress won’t pay.
Dems and RINOs cash their donations from cheap labor and talk about stopping illegal immigration all day= but provide no money.
Horse hockey, Wapo, nuff said.
Good grief. Over 38,000 per month. I like the Israeli way of doing things but I’m prejudiced.
Lol.. chuck n nancy deals equal chuck n nancy funding. Or it was a lie.
Under trump we have a over 200 percent increase? And no wall. Impotence or incompetence, if true. But we got a bumpstock ban, right?
