Just 2% of illegal alien ‘family members’ are apprehended in California – yet CA judges control border policy

The entire current border crisis was spawned last July when a series of California judicial decisions upended the statutory requirement (8 U.S.C. § 1225(b)(1)(A)(i)) to detain all illegal aliens and ordered Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to release children and their parents after 20 days. This, along with a number of other decisions made exclusively by judges either in the southern, central, or northern districts of California, led to the global phenomenon of coming to our border with a single child, real or rented, to obtain judicial catch-and-release.
Why should our entire border suffer from an egregious series of court rulings out of California, especially when very few illegal aliens are now caught in California?
A quick glance at the May border apprehension numbers from CBP reveals that just 7 percent of overall border apprehensions took place in California. California’s border consists of two sectors – San Diego and El Centro. Between the two sectors, just 9,371 illegal aliens were caught, a mere 7.05 percent of the 132,887 illegal aliens caught between ports of entry throughout the entire border in May.
But here’s the kicker: The driving force behind the border surge is the family units, because of Judge Sabraw’s and Judge Dolly Gee’s rulings about releasing parents together with children. If you isolate family unit apprehensions, just 1,942 of the 84,542 individuals apprehended in family units came in through California. That is only 2.3 percent!
