The southern border is so wide open that the number of illegal alien families entering the U.S. so far this fiscal year has already topped all of 2015, according to Homeland Security statistics released Friday.
A total of 6,788 people traveling as family units (at least one child and one adult) were caught on the southwest border in May 2016, representing a more than 20% increase over April, and putting the total for the first eight months of the fiscal year at nearly 45,000, according to the Washington Times. In 2015, the number was fewer than 40,000.
