The crisis on the southern border

Epoch Times“Generally we want to see our custody numbers around 4,500 across the southwest border,” said Brian Hastings, chief law enforcement operations directorate of Border Patrol. “However, two weeks ago we saw our in-custody numbers up to critical levels of 13,500 in custody.”

Hastings said that since March 19, Border Patrol has released over 11,000 non-criminal family members. He said biometrics are taken on the adults, a criminal background check is performed, and, if clean, they are provided with a travel document and served with a Notice to Appear in immigration court.

Don't think that the ability to overwhelm the border patrol isn't noticed and planned for. Don't think the outcome -- "provided with a travel document and served with a Notice to Appear" -- is considered failure. On the contrary, that's success. They have "permission" to stay in the country. The little bit about a court date? Who cares?
