SAN ANTONIO — Acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Ronald Vitiello on Tuesday said federal law enforcement on the southern border has in recent months been overwhelmed processing families — and that strain in resources may be allowing other people to sneak into the U.S.
Vitiello said families are “distracting” border and immigration cops from “other parts of the mission.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Last Saturday, Border Patrol agents working at an immigration checkpoint on a highway 70 miles north of McAllen, Texas, found 15 Chinese citizens in the back of a tractor trailer.
“These Chinese nationals may have been apprehended at the border itself,” Vitiello told reporters at the Border Security Expo.
CBP estimates its agents spent more than 49,000 hours facilitating medical trips and watching patients while they are in hospitals from late December through late February. The loss of agents working in law enforcement roles was equivalent to losing 25 Border Patrol agents for an entire year.
