Flow of Border Immigrants Overwhelming Agencies

"The steep influx of children and families in particular has caused turmoil within the agency, prompting some Homeland Security officials to agitate internally for a shift.  "We're not going to interdict our way out of this problem. More arrests just mean more problems," a Homeland Security official said.  "We need a policy change so we can send these families and children back home instead of turning them loose."  But the argument is not as simple as some politicians or policymakers would make it seem, immigration experts said." -  Susan Carroll and David McCumber, Houston Chronicle, June 1, 2014.
