Border Patrol Crisis: “We’re only catching 50% of the people who cross the border illegally”

Every time someone tells me the U.S. border down south is safe, I always ask if they’ve ever spoken to a U.S. Border Patrol Agent. I get the same usual look of “I’m not gonna answer that”.

Recently, National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd gave an interview(full interview here)  and sounded the alarm on border patrol agents apprehensions:

Judd told LifeZette that border agents estimate one person makes it across for every one caught.

Here’s some more snippets from the article:

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents are currently holding more than 40,000 foreigners, sending the Department of Homeland Security scrambling to find additional detention space.

Obama administration refuses to tell Americans how many of the 408,870 illegal immigrants remain in the country, according to Sessions. Nor will it provide information on the current location of the 331,333 it apprehended in fiscal year 2015.

The release issued by Sessions pointed to other lapses in the U.S. immigration system, including estimates that 527,127 people admitted legally for business or pleasure in fiscal year 2015 failed to return home after their visas expired.
