Border Patrol In Montana

WASHINGTON D.C. (Worthy News)-- According to a Pew Center Research report, three in four illegal immigrants from Mexico who are apprehended at the border are repeat offenders, 15 percent were juveniles apprehended at least six times.

With the surge in unaccompanied children apprehended at the Southwest border, much has been written about the unusually high numbers of kids arriving from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador. The number of apprehensions of Mexican child migrants rivals those of the other three countries, but many of those caught are ones who tried to cross multiple times — meaning that the total number of child migrants from Mexico is lower compared with the Central American nations.

Out of the more than 11,000 apprehensions of unaccompanied Mexican minors during this fiscal year (October 1 through May 31), only 2,700 children (24% of all the apprehensions) reported being apprehended for the first time in their lives, according to a new Pew Research Center analysis of Mexican government data obtained from the Mexican Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The other three quarters of the apprehensions were of children who reported that they had been apprehended multiple times before — 15% were of children who had been apprehended at least six times. -- Source

One thought on “Pew Report: 75% of Illegals from Mexico Repeat Offenders

  1. What they should to with repeat offenders is put them in an internment camp and make slaves out of them for a year, then send them back. That way their labor would pay for the costs of watching the border and sending them back.
