Compared to this time last fiscal year, San Diego Sector Border Patrol (SDC) has experienced a 17% decrease in apprehensions from 8,804 to 7,318. The hardworking agents of San Diego Sector continue to diligently impede and deny illegal entries. Agents also protect our communities from dangerous drugs being smuggled into the country.
The November breakdown of individuals processed in SDC is 170 unaccompanied alien children (UAC), 388 family units (FMU), and 3,119 single adults. UACs and FMUs continue to strain resources in San Diego as these demographics are the most draining in regards to manpower and supplies. However, due to policies that the administration has implemented, there has been an 81% decrease in UACs and FMUs in SDC when compared to November 2018.
In November, there were 42,649 enforcement actions for U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) nationwide. This represents a six percent decrease when compared to October. Of these, 33,510 apprehensions were by Border Patrol agents who operate in-between official ports of entry and 9,139 inadmissible aliens were arrested by CBP officers at ports of entry. This decline includes a six percent decline in inadmissible aliens at ports of entry and a five percent decline in USBP apprehensions.
November decreases are attributed primarily to lower U.S. Border Patrol FMU apprehensions, which have decreased by seven percent since October. However, last fiscal year we saw extremely concerning numbers nationwide with nearly a million apprehensions and inadmissible aliens. Read: Fiscal Year 2019 accomplishments.
The following are the total drug seizures for San Diego Sector during the month of November:
Cocaine: 33 lbs.
Marijuana: 10 lbs.
Meth: 190 lbs.
Heroin: 0 lbs.
Fentanyl: 25 lbs.

Border Patrol Saves Two Lives After Smugglers Leave Migrants for Dead
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), often demonized by the political left, saved two lives Sunday night after human smugglers left two migrants for dead in the Texas heat.
“U.S. Border Patrol agents rescued two subjects suffering severe heat-related illness,” according to a Monday CBP press release. “Last night, agents actively tracking a group of illegal aliens in Brooks County suspended their search after encountering an unresponsive woman and a severely dehydrated man.”
The two migrants were treated on site by a Border Patrol Agent Emergency Medical Technician (BPA/EMT), and after were transported to a local medical facility for further treatment.
Stories like this are common in highly-trafficked human smuggling areas on the U.S. Southern border. During smuggling attempts, migrants who become physically weak are often left for dead, and CBP often treats them for dehydration and other maladies.
Despite its humanitarian work, CBP is derided by far-left media as “Nazis” who run “concentration camps.”
Around the same time that CBP published its press release, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) announced on Twitter that it wants “the dismantling of the Department of Homeland Security” (DHS).
BREAKING: We’re calling for the dismantling of the Department of Homeland Security.
— ACLU (@ACLU) August 10, 2020
Aside from its other critical objectives that keep Americans safe, DHS is the parent organization of CBP.
The ACLU is now actively working to make America less safe, and completely discounting the humanitarian work of organizations like CBP.
CBP Arrests Previously Deported Gang Member With Long Rap Sheet
U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) announced Tuesday that it arrested a foreign gang member who had wreaked havoc across America, committing multiple crimes in multiple states.
“U.S. Border Patrol agents arrested a previously deported Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) gang member east of Lukeville, Arizona, late Saturday evening,” according to a press release.
Carlos Flores-Marquez, 37, was caught attempting to cross into the United States through the desert. He admitted to being a member of the brutal Salvadoran MS-13 gang, known for committing heinous and violent crimes in the United States.
He also told agents he had been deported from the United States.
As it turns out, that deportation occurred earlier this year.
During Flores-Marquez’s processing, CBP found that he had “an extensive criminal history in Arizona, Florida and Virginia, where his 2016 arrest led to convictions for multiple felonies in Abermarle County.”
“Flores-Marquez now faces federal prosecution for immigration violations, as he is a previously deported felon,” the press release said.
CBP also explained the process by which it identified illegal aliens.
“All persons apprehended by the U.S. Border Patrol undergo criminal history checks using biometrics to ensure illegal aliens with criminal histories are positively identified,” according to the release.
CBP has said that the amount of interactions will illegal border crossers has sharply declined during the COVID-19 pandemic, and since President Donald J. Trump closed the borders to non-essential travelers.
Still, more than 4,000 would-be illegal aliens are being intercepted by the federal law enforcement entity each month.
