DHS has finally released their report that reveals that only 54% of illegal aliens who cross the southern border are apprehended, this contradicts the Obama administration’s claims that 81% of all illegal border crossers are caught. The report also shows that since Pres. Obama has taken office asylum demands have increased 900% from 17,000 in 2009 to 170,000 in 2014.
The report, conducted by the Institute for Defense Analyses, notes that only 29% of illegal aliens crossing at ports of entry with fake IDs or hidden in vehicles were apprehended in 2014 and 39% in 2015.
The House and Senate Appropriations Committees requested the report as part of the 2016 omnibus bill. Fox News accused DHS from withholding the report during the presidential election, though DHS officials have claimed this to be false.
