Border Patrol Says Apprehensions in the Rio Grande Valley Have Already Surpassed All of 2018

“Less than seven months into the fiscal year, the number of undocumented immigrants who have been apprehended or turned themselves in to U.S. Border Patrol agents in the Rio Grande Valley has already surpassed last year’s total,” Julian Aguilar reports for The Texas Tribune.

“Speaking at the 2019 Rx Drug Abuse & Heroin Summit at a downtown Atlanta hotel, the first lady said saving Americans from opioid addiction was an issue ‘close to all of our hearts,’” FOX 5 Atlanta reports. “I have seen firsthand the medical and personal results of this crisis,” Mrs. Trump said, highlighting her experiences touring medical facilities as part of her “Be Best” initiative. “Speaking about the damage the epidemic has inflicted on families, the first lady said she and the administration are committed to supporting additional treatment facilities that would help ‘both mothers and babies recover and replace the bond of addiction with the bond of love.’”
