The Department of Homeland Security reported earlier this month that the number of border arrests dropped about 44 percent from January to February, the lowest monthly tallies since at the least the start of the 2012 budget year.
In the old days, people caught at the border would be given a notice to appear in court, and then released into the US. This was called a “run letter,” because the illegal alien would simply run away and hide. But Attorney General Sessions (wow!!) has made it a priority to end the practice, and simply deport people. Word must be getting around.
