Thumbs up Just on Fox news...

I had to rewing to make sure I heard it correctly. There have been more than 50,000 arrests at the border in October? Is that true? So I google it and find...

Immigrants Traveling as Families Arrested on Mexican Border Increase 38% in October.
The Wall Street Journal. McAllen, Texas. Nearly 51,000 undocumented immigrants were caught crossing the U.S. border with Mexico last month, the Trump administration said Friday.

Among 50,975 people arrested, roughly 23,100 were traveling as families, according to arrest figures posted by U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

The number of people traveling as families arrested last month, mostly from Central America, according to government arrest data is a 38% increase compared to September. During the 12 months from October 2017 through September, or fiscal year 2018, more than 107,000 migrants traveling as families were arrested the border, a record for any fiscal year. Nearly all of those people have or are expected to ask for asylum in the United States, U.S. officials said.

Yeah and they just keep coming. Mexico should have turned them away at their southern border. Nice neighbors we have there.
