Border Protection Website Doesn't Mention Increasing Border Security from Flood of Illegals

July 16, 2014 - 12:07 PM

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency makes no mention of any efforts to secure the U.S. border from the current flood of illegal aliens - either on its website homepage or in media releases this year.

Not one of the CBP's media releases in 2014 is about securing the border from the surge of illegal alien entries. For example, releases in the past two weeks tout the seizure of snails, birds, and drugs - and saving a man from hanging himself on a border fence:

It seems the last time the CBP issued a media release related to actually increasing border security was back on Dec. 23, 2013:

CBP Homepage 7/16/14

While the CBP homepage currently has a headline titled "Through the Lens: Securing America's Borders," it's not actually about securing the border, but about the CBP commissioner discussing the dangers of crossing the border.
