How’s that for progress! A report by Breitbart Texas has informed us that a temporary holding facility has been closed due to a decrease in border crossings.
This is a welcome bit of news and think about how the decrease in border crossings come at a time when ICE is picking up their jobs in rounding up illegal aliens. It’s called LAW and ORDER, my friends. This is great news to begin, but we have a long way to go.
Do not get too settled and don’t push the panic button. We will fight together, pray together and win together; I am 100 percent sure of it.
A decline in border crossings in the Rio Grande Valley Sector allowed officials to shut down one of its temporary holding facilities. Officials opened the facility in December in response to the surge of migrant apprehensions in south Texas.
The facility being closed is located near the Donna-Rio Bravo International Bridge, Breitbart Texas reported in December. “This effort is designed to minimize the impact to border security operations while fulfilling our humanitarian efforts,” Joint Task Force-West South Texas Corridor Commander Manuel Padilla, Jr. said at that time in a written statement. “We will work closely with all our partner agencies to maintain efficient operations.”
Preliminary numbers of border apprehensions following the swearing in of President Donald Trump revealed a sharp drop in Family Unit Aliens (FMUA) and Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC), according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials. FMUA apprehensions decreased in January by 42 percent while UAC apprehensions declined by 39 percent. While the apprehensions decreased from the previous month, they are still significantly ahead of January 2016 numbers.
CBP officials stated they are suspending operation of the temporary holding facility late last week.
