You remember the “surge” of illegal immigrants that took place in 2014? It was a mass crossing of the border of hundreds of thousands of illegals onto American soil.
It strained all the crisis systems in the country and required America to devote tens of millions of dollars toward humanitarian aid, border security, additional troops, welfare, property damage replacement and repair, and more.
Well, it looks like in 2016, we might actually exceed the number of illegal immigrants crossing the border from 2014.
Texas news agency KVUE reports: [In 2014] some 260,000 people, mostly unaccompanied children from Central America, flooded across the border through the Rio Grande Valley. Congress called for legislation, then-Gov. Rick Perry mobilized a thousand National Guard troops, and the Eighty-fourth Texas Legislature pumped nearly a billion dollars into the Texas Department of Public Safety for border security.
