The U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Custom and Border Protection agency has released an interesting annual report on arrests and seizures for fiscal year 2014. DHS released their 'End of Year Statistics on 12/19 and included the CBP Border Security Report in PDF form.

The introduction states "As the agency charged with safeguarding America�s borders, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) plays a vital role in protecting the national security of the United States. This report summarizes CBP�s fiscal year 2014 border enforcement efforts, which reflect CBP�s focus on transparency and building partnerships to secure a 21st Century border against a variety of threats and adversaries."

It continues, "Border Patrol apprehensions totaled 486,651 nationwide in FY 2014, compared to 420,789 in FY 2013. The uptick is largely due to the increase in unaccompanied children and family units who turned themselves in to Border Patrol agents in South Texas this summer. In FY 2013, the Border Patrol apprehended a total of 38,833 unaccompanied children and 15,056 family units nationwide. In FY 2014, those numbers were 68,631 and 68,684, respectively�a 76 percent increase in unaccompanied children and a 356 percent increase in family units over FY 2013. DHS responded aggressively to this spike, and by September the number of unaccompanied children and family units crossing into South Texas were at their lowest levels in almost two years. While Border Patrol apprehensions of Mexican nationals in FY 2014 decreased by 14 percent when compared to FY 2013, apprehensions of individuals from countries other than Mexico�predominately individuals from Central America�increased by 68 percent. Of the 486,651 apprehensions nationwide, 468,407 of those apprehensions were of individuals from Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, and nearly all apprehensions were along the southwest border. In FY 2014, CBP apprehended 66,638 nationals from El Salvador, 81,116 nationals from Guatemala, 91,475 nationals from Honduras, and 229,178 nationals from Mexico."

The report continues "...At ports of entry in FY 2014, CBP officers arrested 8,013 individuals wanted for serious crimes. Officers also stopped 223,712 inadmissible aliens from entering the United States through ports of entry, an increase of 9 percent from FY 2013. Grounds of inadmissibility included immigration violations, criminal and other violations, and national security reasons. Depending on the circumstances, these individuals were arrested, allowed to voluntarily return to their country of origin, or allowed to withdraw their application for admission into the United States...
CBP officers and agents also played a critical counter-narcotics role, seizing more than 3.8 million pounds of narcotics across the country in FY 2014. In addition, the agency seized more than $237 million in unreported currency through targeted enforcement operations. During FY 2014, P-3 aircrews from Corpus Christi, Texas, and Jacksonville, Florida, detected 149 suspected smuggling vessels and aircraft. This resulted in the seizure of 112,224 pounds of cocaine with an estimated street value of more than $8.4 billion.

A breakdown of CBP enforcement actions by state along the southwest border region (including Arizona, Texas, New Mexico and California) netted the following results for fiscal year 2014:
  • Apprehensions 479,371
  • Drug Seizures 2,366,639 pounds
  • Currency Seizures $25,087,159
  • Persons Determined to be Inadmissible 89,887

    The report ads "CBP began testing and evaluating the NightHawk control tire deflation device last January. This device will provide CBP officers and agents with an improved ability to address vehicular threats from a safe distance by deflating the vehicles� tires. The testing concluded in July and the evaluation results identified design changes and shortcomings that CBP is addressing with the manufacturer. CBP will consider the continuation of this program once the design changes and shortcomings are fixed."

    A DHS 'Use of Force Report' admitted that reform was needed because Agent's "shots at suspect vehicles are taken out of frustration" involving "non-violent suspects who posed no threat."

Carpool lanes in Southern California, which were paid for years ago by taxpayers, are now being turned into toll roads to fleece the people. Orange County, CA alone was issuing 15,000 photo citations PER DAY after motorists were confused about the new system.
