March 2017 Border Apprehensions Hit 17 Year Low
|H.S. Sec. John Kelly|
Secretary Kelly also reported that the number of unaccompanied minors (UAC) and family units continued to decline. Less than 1,000 UACs were apprehended and fewer than 1,100 family units were caught crossing the border last month.
Historically, apprehension numbers normally increase 10%-30% from February to March. Yet, these numbers are significantly lower than February, which reached a five-year low.
Secretary Kelly wrote that the decrease was “no accident” and credited the decline to Pres. Trump’s executive orders.
