Border Patrol agents arrest alleged gang member

Border Patrol agents arrest alleged gang member

A Tucson family says U.S. Border Patrol agents detained and separated them Tuesday, sparking immigration advocacy groups to call attention to the incident. He died later that day, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection said.

Mark Morgan, a career Federal Bureau of Investigation official who served as Border Patrol chief for the Obama administration, told FOX Business on Thursday that the U.S. -Mexico border is undeniably in a state of crisis. "It's not a self-proclaimed crisis".

More migrants were apprehended at the border in February than in any month since 2007, and the influx does not seem to be slowing in March. Arrests by ICE agents fell 12 percent between October 1 and December 29 of previous year, while deportations by ICE rose 10 percent. "And I can report today that CBP is forecasting the problem will get even worse this spring as the weather warms up".

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials said on Thursday that enforcement resources were stretched thin in the interior of the country as agents deal with an overflow of Central Americans seeking asylum at the U.S. -Mexico border. During his second detainment, medical personnel at the Border Patrol's processing facility evaluated him near El Paso's Paso Del Norte Port of Entry and then transported him to the medical center.

Still, migrant apprehensions are far below levels seen for decades until the mid-2000s, when they reached more than a million per year - mostly adult Mexican men - before falling dramatically.

The shelter's director, Ruben Garcia, told local media he expected authorities to release more than 1,800 migrants in the coming days and that his organization has spent the "unsustainable amount" of more than $1 million in the past five months on hotel rooms.

Three additional sites were opened to handle overflow.

The large number of illegal crossings has "saturated" authorities and the shelters they are released to, Davis said.

Many turn themselves in to Border Patrol agents and ask for asylum, a legal process.

And they are getting caught up in prolonged court cases with significant backlogs, she said.

In the past three months, ICE has released 107,000 migrant family members, Asher said.

Many more migrants remain in detention awaiting court hearings on asylum claims.

Despite President Donald Trump's campaign-era pledge to arrest and deport "criminal illegal immigrants", once in office he authorized ICE to abandon the Obama administration's priority of arresting undocumented people with serious criminal records, replacing it with an executive order to arrest and deport anyone subject to a deportation order. This applies to immigrants who were released from custody years ago, as well as those who already completed their sentences or paid their fines.

At the turn of the century, the overall apprehension numbers were higher, but they were nearly all adult men from Mexico who could be immediately returned across the border.
