Conservative Review - New data: The border surge is increasing AGAIN

What happens when we allow courts to countermand our immigration policy and unilaterally grant asylum to invaders at our border? What happens when every political and cultural institution sheds crocodile tears for illegal invaders rather than helping Americans harmed by their crime, drugs, gangs, and the fiscal burden? The laws of supply and demand dictate that more invaders will come. And indeed, that is what has happened in August.

That is a record for the month of August. The number of unaccompanied alien children (UACs) rose by 11.5 percent.
