- U.S. border patrol efforts caught 705k would-be immigrants in the year ended Sept. 30, down from 1.7 million/year in the mid-80s
- In addition to building a wall, which was very uncool when Germany did it, border efforts have included increasing staff from 4,000 agents in 1993 to 18,000 currently
What is left out:
- How many are still getting in? How is their batting average?
- How much of the decline is attributable to the economy? Are they staying home because there are fewer jobs?
