Second Wave of Illegal Alien Minors Now Crossing Border

Despite past claims by the administration that it has resolved the crisis of unaccompanied alien minors (UACs) streaming across the border, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) records show that a second surge of minors crossing the border is now underway. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) records indicate that the Border Patrol has seized over 12,000 UACs so far in fiscal year 2015 (Oct. 1, 2014- Feb. 28, 2015) and over 10,000 aliens traveling in family units. The Border Patrol is transferring these aliens to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) at an average of 2,000 UACs a month, meaning that the Border Patrol is returning only one in six of these apprehended minors to their home countries.
