New Technology Leads To 90% Drop In Apprehensions Of Undocumented Immigrants Along Texas-Mexico Border

A new fence, more agents and updated technology have resulted in a 90 percent drop over a five-year span in the apprehensions of undocumented immigrants along the divide between El Paso, Texas, and Mexico, the U.S. Border Patrol says.
"[The new fence] gives us the opportunity to do our jobs a lot better," said Jake Núñez, a public affairs officer for the U.S. Border Patrol. "It gives us time, if someone tries to climb over it or go through the fence."
