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

In the first six months of the year, 264,165 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.

    We could show countries how to run a country correctly, creating jobs, security, good services, electing the right politicians, and then charge them for it, then the illegals and even legals would not want to come to the United States because they would have their own. I would be equally concerned about illegal irish, russians and eastern block imigrants also. The irsh look just like, named John O’Connor or any white United States citizen on the block, Sein Fein kind of terrorists plenty of them.

    Not to create a fuss but this was based on apprehensions at the Border …

    There are lots of “Regular” Euro and East Euro types as well who have managed to get here and remained illegally … Irish, French, Ukraine, Polish & Others among them and I know LOTS of these people have taken good, high paying jobs.

    Keep ’em migrants moving, Rawhide.
    Don’t try to understand ’em.
    Just rope, throw, and brand ’em.
    Drive ’em to the border, Rawhide!

    Too bad Mexico’s economy is in the tank. If NAFTA had worked as Slick Willie and his cronies said it would, at least 50% of our illegal immigrant problem would be resolved. And now we “trust” this same crew when they tell us TPP is good for us. Please, I’ll need a lot more “kool-aid” before I can believe that.
