Troops Border Deployment Helped Catch Illegal Aliens

Washington Times

The deployment of federal troops along the U.S.-Mexico border in October netted a 60 percent increase in apprehensions of illegal aliens by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents, a congressional report says.

The report given this month to the Senate Armed Services Committee says a Texas-based Stryker-armored reconnaissance, surveillance and target acquisition squadron helped CBP agents capture 2,000 illegal border crossers in New Mexico and Arizona.

    It would be a great idea to make the troops deployment a permanent basis.

    You know, if the troops in Iraq saw the pictures of the students protesters degrading the American flag, they would make a b-line for Mexico in a minute.
