Illegal Immigration Down, Border Violence Up

The Washington Times reports today that Carla Provost, the acting chief of the U.S. Border Patrol, told congress that even though illegal immigration is down, violence along the border is up, with assaults on U.S. Border Patrol agents nearly doubling so far in 2017. Agents have reported more than 550 assaults through June 1, up from 300 assaults at the same time last year. She recounted the statistics as a warning during testimony on gang activity among the illegal immigrant population.
