The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) reported Wednesday it captured or turned away 60,782 people at the southern border in December, almost the same monthly figures as posted in October and November.

The Border Patrol apprehended 50,753 people who crossed the border illegally in December. In November, the Border patrol apprehended 51,856 people, and in October, 51,001 were apprehended.

The article goes on to state the following:

A further 10,029 people were deemed inadmissible at ports of entry in December, compared with 10,600 in November and 9,771 in October.

Those numbers are on the high end of five-year averages, with the exception on 2017, a year that saw a sharp drop in illegal immigration, but much lower than the historical high of 161,973 apprehensions in March 2006.

DHS did not publish the numbers on its usual website because of the partial government shutdown that has been ongoing since Dec. 22.

According to department statistics, more than half of those apprehended or turned away at the border in December — 31,901 — were either unaccompanied minors or migrants traveling in family groups.

    If the Democrats and liberals don’t think that this is an invasion and act of WAR against this country they are Brainless ,and should leave and go to a country where if you invade there are severe consequences.
    This is literally destroying this country and I’m afraid that this is a very dangerous situation for us all.
