America is facing a security and humanitarian crisis at the southern border even though apprehensions are down compared to 20 years ago, President Trump’s top border official insisted to Congress Tuesday.
“There is an ongoing debate as to whether this constitutes a border security crisis or a humanitarian crisis. Let me be clear, it is both,” Border Patrol Chief Carla Provost testified in the House Judiciary Committee.
The article goes on to state the following:
“I’ve been asked many times how the current situation can be a crisis compared to years when we surpassed 1 million apprehensions. To understand the numbers, you have to look at what’s happening on the ground.”
Her testimony backs up the view of Trump, who has said a crisis exists that requires him to claim billions of unused federal dollars to build a border wall between the U.S. and Mexico. Provost said the lower numbers of apprehensions only tell part of the story.
