The U.S. Border Patrol on Tuesday unveiled its first national strategy in eight years, a period in which illegal immigration over the Mexican border to America has dropped dramatically.
And as migration has slowed the number of agents has more than doubled as apprehensions of people entering illegally from Mexico dropped to a 40-year low.
The new approach – outlined in a 32-page document that took more than two years to develop – uses buzzwords like ‘risk-based’ and ‘intelligence-driven’ to describe a more nuanced, targeted response to constantly evolving threats.
