along southern border, only 49% from Mexico:

Fewer than half of those nabbed at the border are from Mexico | SanDiegoUnionTribune.com

Apprehended in six months. Imagine how many get in total.

Imagine how many of those that are apprehended are... simply released on our streets.

Obama to his credit has deported many. However Obama and Clinton has not taken real measures o enforce our borders. Once Obama leaves and Clinton is not in the White House we will see direct actions with National Guard Units to Shore up the Gaps. Those that knowingly here Illegal may self deport.
The Frustration of the BP is there and those brave men and women need more support and a fast deportation plan. No Vis, No Pass Port, No Work Permit, Gone in 2 weeks at the expense of the country of origin.

Your link is broken. According to your title 264,000 apprehended, only 49% from Mexico. What do you mean by imagine how many get in total? There's no "get in" presented here, just a number of those apprehended and the percentage of those who are from Mexico vs anywhere else. Those apprehended did not "get in".

The others than the half from Mexico are from Honduras, followed by Guatemala.

The Border is essentially open now, it is terrible. Obama and his administration did this. We need a new policy and soon!
The Border and U.S. are no longer Sovereign. Only hope is Trump/Pence win in November or the country will be ruined.

If these refugees from Central,Latin America and Mexico can ride atop of trains like a bunch of Indian-Pakistani's to our southern border to cross over yes we have a problem...where is the law enforcement below our southern border to stop this deadly cargo of humanity riding in a unsafe manner atop of trains?
These counties are in this together to rid themselves of their problems and to unload them on US and then to create new socialist DemocRat voters...

Not entirely... Reagan reluctantly made a deal with Democrats... He would grant the amnesty the Dems wanted and in return the Dems would fund more border security to prevent more illegals from crossing the border.

Reagan lived up to his end of the bargain. Democrats did not.

"Not everyone who gets apprehended at the U.S.-Mexico border is from Mexico.

In the first six months of the year, 264,185 people were apprehended somewhere along the Southwest border, and 49.6 percent of them were from Mexico, according to data from the U.S. Border Patrol.

The map below shows the number of people apprehended, by country. Use the search bar for specific countries, or hover and zoom over the map."

Reagan started the disaster that is today. His legalizing of almost 3 million illegals in 1986 was one of, if not the most, debacles in the last 60 years.

The 1965 immigration act is up there as well. Stupid idiot Kennedy brothers
