U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson revealed that there were an estimated 480,000 illegal immigrants apprehended along the Southwest border in fiscal 2014, with more than half arrested in Texas.

During an October 9 discussion sponsored by the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), Johnson added that President Obama is “very committed” to taking executive action on immigration reform between the midterm elections and the end of the year.

Preliminary DHS estimates made public by Johnson show that there were 479,377 undocumented immigrants arrested along the U.S.-Mexico border in fiscal 2014 (Oct. 1, 2013 thru Sept. 30, 2014).

Of those arrests, “about 53 percent” occurred in the U.S. Border Patrol Rio Grande Valley sector in Texas, said Johnson.
