Here’s how much and how fast apprehensions at the border change

The border wall is at the center of the partial federal government shutdown, now the longest in U.S. history. President Trump is insisting on billions of dollars to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border before he reopens the government. How has the current wall worked to secure the border? How many people has it deterred? Funding and technology for security along the southern border has increased nearly every year for the past 15 and been effective. The number of people listed by the U.S. Borde...

By LISA MASCARO | AP Congressional Correspondent WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama stunned Republicans when he bypassed Congress and — relying on what he called his pen and his phone — used executive powers to enact his agenda, including protecting millions of young immigrants from deportation.

The potential use o...

"Thousands of requests by men to bring in child and adolescent brides to live in the United States were approved over the past decade... In one case, a 49-year-old man applied for admission for a 15-year-old girl."

"The approvals are legal: The Immigration and Nationality Act does not set minimum age requirements. And in weighing petitions for spouses or fiancees, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services goes by whether the marriage is legal in the home country and then whether the marriage would be legal in the state where the petitioner lives.... Some victims of forced marriage say the lure of a U.S. passport combined with lax U.S. marriage laws are partly fueling the petitions. 'My passport ruined my l...
