Border Crisis Worsened in May, and the Worst May Be Yet to Come May continued this disturbing trend, as the Border Patrol apprehended 180,034 people entering along the southern border– the highest total recorded for any month in more than 20 years. The May 2021 apprehension numbers represent a 700 percent increase over May 2020, when the Border Patrol nabbed 23,237 at the southern border.
Unanimous rulings by the U.S. Supreme Court are exceedingly rare these days. But twice, in June, the high court handed down 9-0 decisions giving the government clear leeway to remove aliens who are in violation of our laws.
