Border Agent: 60% of Illegals Getting Into U.S. Uncaught

By  MRCTV, Special for  USDR

U.S. Border Patrol Agent Chris Cabrera told members of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Wednesday he estimates that U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is catching only about 40 percent of the illegal aliens that cross the Southwest U.S. border illegally each year.

Cabrera’s estimate would put the total number of unaccompanied children and family units that crossed the border illegally in the first 11 months of FY2015 at more than 175,000. And that’s not including single adult aliens and the fact that there are multiple family members in each “family unit.”

If Cabrera’s estimates are correct, this would put the actual number of UACs who came to the United States illegally at about 89,000 as of Aug. 31. Similarly, Cabrera’s approximation means roughly 86,500 family units have also crossed the border unlawfully in the first 11 months of FY2015 — more than twice the 34,565 apprehensions CBP reported as of Aug. 31.
