Border Patrol arrests drop sharply in June:
Border Patrol arrests fell sharply in June to the lowest level since February, according to a U.S. official, ending a streak of four straight monthly increases.
The drop may reflect seasonal trends or it could signal that President Donald Trump's "zero-tolerance" policy to criminally prosecute every adult who enters the country illegally is having a deterrent effect.
The agency made 34,057 arrests on the border with Mexico during June, down 16 percent from 40,344 in May, according to the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the numbers are not yet intended for public release. The June tally is preliminary and subject to change.
Arrests were still more than double from 16,077 in June 2017, but the sharp decline from spring could undercut the Trump administration's narrative of a border in crisis.
Customs and Border Protection, which includes the Border Patrol, declined to comment on the numbers, saying it doesn't discuss them as a matter of policy until public release "to ensure consistency and accuracy."
The administration announced in early May that it was prosecuting every illegal entry, including adults who came with their children. The separation of more than 2,000 children from their parent sparked an international outcry and Trump reversed course on June 20, ordering that families should stay together. --->READ MORE HERE

Border Arrests Have Dropped 70% Since Title 42 Ended, Biden Administration Says:
Arrests along the southern border have plummeted by approximately 70% after the expiration of Title 42 and the implementation of a new set of tougher rules for asylum seekers, the Biden administration said on Tuesday.
Title 42, a pandemic-era measure used to expel migrants before they could ask for asylum, expired on May 11. Since May 12, arrests of migrants crossing the border illegally have declined to an average of 3,400 a day, down from more than 10,000 a day in the days leading up to the policy’s expiration, the government said.
The sudden drop in apprehensions at the border has so far defied predictions—made by Republican lawmakers and the Biden administration alike—that lifting the policy would result in an unprecedented surge of migration at the border.
Before May 11, Republicans and some Democrats coalesced around a bill that would have extended Title 42 for an additional two years, and even President Biden told reporters he was expecting the border to be “chaotic for a while.” --->READ MORE HERE
