CBP has seen an overall increase in the apprehension of unaccompanied immigrant children at the SW border, specifically in the Rio Grande Valley.
…including some with terrorist connections or originating in nations where the current Ebola virus outbreak has occurred.
Gov. Rick Perry today directed TX Adjutant General John Nichols to immediately begin preparations for the deployment of up to 1,000 National Guard troops to the border.
“Our legislation is a common-sense solution that will take immediate steps to stem the tide of this growing crisis.”
Perry: I hate to be conspiratorial, but how do you move [60,000 children] from Central America across Mexico and into the United States without there being a fairly coordinated effort?
