The report, linked on the Judicial Watch website, includes these highlights:
  • The largest increase in assaults on U.S. agents and officers was in the San Diego district, where attacks rose 48 percent from 2007 to 2008.
  • There were 147 incursions at or between ports of entry for Customs and Border Protection components in 2008, up from 32 in 2007, an explosive rise of 359 percent.
  • There were 1,325 incidents of violence occurring at or between the Ports of Entry against CBP agents and officers, resulting in a 23 percent increase from 1,073 in FY 2007.
  • Ninety-seven percent of all incidents of violence against CBP agents and officers occurred on the southwest border.
  • There were 227 assaults against CBP officers at the Ports of Entry in FY 2008 as compared to 85 in FY 2007, an increase of 167 percent.
The Obama administration also rejected an appeal from Texas Gov. Rick Perry and Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer to deploy 1,000 National Guard troops to help quell border violence, the organization reported.
Border incursions rocket 359%


I'm really angered that the Obama administration actually rejected not one appeal but TWO appeals from different state governors. I just can't believe that. Someone needs to directly call the administration out on those refusals.
