commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

Arrests at the United States southern Border drop by 23%…drug seizures rise…….

Because of stronger enforcement, and the weaker economy, lessening the need for labor …the Homeland Security Department reports that border apprehensions have dropped to 556,041 from 723,825 in the last 12 months from Sept 30th……the US Border Patrol has expanded it agents from roughly 11,000 to 20,000, making it the second largest uniformed law enforcement agency in the U.S. behind the New York City Police Department ( 31,000 )…..

Drug seizures have increased though…..with port finds up 53% on cocaine, 13% on marijuana…on land the marijuana finds are up 37% and cocaine is up 15% from last year…..

People try to ship drugs over and under water, in the air and in vehicles and by foot…..
