“A proposed substitute amendment for the comprehensive immigration bill under consideration in the Senate that would increase border security funding by $38 billion and deploy an additional 20,000 Border Patrol agents to the southwestern border has livened prospects for bill passage in the Senate–although critics from left and right have been quick to criticize it.”
When border security gets tight on land, where do you think illegal immigration will spike?
An additional 20,000 agents is equal to half the size of the Coast Guard to perform only one mission, Alien Migrant Interdiction Operations (AMIO).
If no attempt is made to tighten the maritime borders, it is not to difficult to foresee what will happen.
