Relative data hides scope of problem

I continuously read Democrats’ opinions that we do not need to worry about border security as the number of illegal border crossings are at their lowest level in years. Is that four or five per day?

They never mention the low number is just short of 396,000 people who were apprehended in 2018 plus 124,000 who turned themselves in, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection data.
