Fewer child immigrants attempting to cross the U.S-Mexico border

Posted on Friday, September 5th, 2014 at 8:39 pm    

The Department of Homeland Security reported last Wednesday, September 3 that the number of children attempting to illegally cross into the United States from the U.S.-Mexico border is steadily declining.

In August, the Border Patrol took 3,129 children into custody, those of which were mostly from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras. In July the number was at 5,400, while in June it reached over 10,600.

This wide increase triggered the administration to beef up efforts against human smuggling groups and urgently seek out cooperation from parents in Central America to not send their children to treks to the country via Mexico. The Obama administration declined to comment on why these numbers are declining so significantly, saying different factors could have caused it.

However, one contributing factor could stem from how last month, Mexican officials began pulling Central Americans off of a freight train, dubbed “La Bestia” (The Beast), notorious for taking thousands of migrants toward the U.S. border.

They are always on top of documents that needs to be collected, due dates and also preparing you for anything extra non top of what is required. William and his team are very experienced in working with the local and federal USCIS office. I would highly recommend them.
