Illegal border crossings exceed 500,000 in fiscal 2018 showing the crisis is worsening

Washington Examiner:
Government data released Tuesday show 100,000 more people were caught by federal law enforcement officers while attempting to illegally enter the United States from Mexico in fiscal 2018 than the previous year.

The statistics indicate President Trump's vow to secure the border is proving to be a challenge.

A total of 521,090 people were apprehended between ports of entry as well as denied entry at the ports along the southwest border from Oct. 1, 2017, through Sept. 30, 2018, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

In 2017, that number was 415,517, down from 553,378 in 2016.
...
Democrats appear to oppose any efforts to stop the illegal entry because they see these people as counting in the census which would give them additional House seats they do not deserve.
