Del Rio CBP Sector Apprehends Over 1,800 Subjects Illegally Crossing Border From 26 Different Countries

David LeDoux

SPECIAL NOTE: Since Oct. 1, Del Rio Sector has apprehended over 1,800 subjects illegally crossing our borders, from 26 different countries. Citizens of Haiti comprised over 450 of those apprehensions. Due to policies enacted by Title 42, Border Patrol agents rapidly encounter process and expel those illegally entering the U.S. back to their countries of origin for the health and safety of the population.

EDITORIAL NOTE
We understand that a certain segment of the population finds the phrase “illegal alien” offensive. The U.S. Court System uses this term because it is the term used by the Supreme Court in its latest pronouncement pertaining to this area of the law. See Arizona v. U.S., 132 S. Ct. 2492 (2012). EXAMPLE: Federal immigration laws, such as 8 U.S.C. §1365, which deals with a reimbursement program the federal government has for states that are incarcerating illegal aliens, uses the term “illegal aliens” in its title and within the statute itself. An illegal alien is defined as anyone “who is in the United States unlawfully.

TEXAS – Below you will find the latest information available for reported drug smuggling, human smuggling and trafficking, and illegal crossings over the Texas border and ports over the past week.

Most news outlets report snippets of the issues that happen on our southern border and only when it fits within their political ideology, all the while downplaying, exaggerating, misleading, and inconsistent information about our southern border activity.

Our border issues are complex, and they affect all Texans and Americans.

Texas is our home and to most Texans, the border isn’t a political issue or a tool to use against another political party; this is a safety and security issue for our children, families, friends, and local and national law enforcement.

To better comprehend the complex issues of drug smuggling, human and sex trafficking of children and adults, unaccompanied children, and illegal immigrant crossings, including child molesters, convicted criminals, murderers, gang members, where they come from, we need real numbers, facts, and statistics.

The information we provide ONLY encompasses the Texas and Mexico border.

This information has been gathered and compiled directly from information by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), which is under the purview of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

As you read, we hope the information provided will help all Texans and Americans better understand the complexity of our current immigration laws and policies created by our D.C. lawmakers.
