12 illegal aliens have joined in a legal action suing Pres. Trump for denying them their “rights” to claim asylum in the United States
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) substantiates the most recent apprehension of 654 illegal aliens from Guatemala surging across the U.S. border near Yuma in just two days this week. According to this press release, these aliens are not believed to be associated with the large caravan being monitored traveling through Mexico to the United States.
The groups illegally entered on both sides of the San Luis Port of Entry where there is outdated border wall infrastructure. Larger numbers have started to illegally cross shallow portions of the Colorado River near Yuma.
Yet in a display of unmitigated gall, a dozen illegals, aided by accommodating pro-invasion legal teams — even asking for “an awarding of costs and attorneys’ fees” — are suing President Trump, (legal document linked) citing his “shockingly unconstitutional“ actions in not swinging our door wide open to accommodate and provide taxpayer-funded benefits to the hordes of invaders.
This CBP chart details the realities in raw numbers dating back to Fiscal Year 2012. Apprehensions have increased under President Trump’s administration, which has prioritized border security.
Year to date apprehensions in the Yuma Sector are up over 150% compared to this date in Fiscal Year 2018. Total Fiscal Year 2018 apprehensions were more than double total Fiscal Year 2017 numbers. According to CBP statistics, 60,745 invaders were apprehended or were deemed inadmissible while attempting to enter the U.S. illegally via the southern border in October, the first month of the fiscal year 2019.
A total of 521,090 foreign nationals were apprehended at the southern border in fiscal year 2018 – up from 451,514 in fiscal year 2017. In Yuma alone, more than 26,000 were apprehended in fiscal year 2018.
Additional information regarding unaccompanied minors and others entering along other southwest border sectors including El Paso and Laredo Texas, Tucson, Arizona and San Diego, California is reported by CBP.
