This article is good news in the sense that things are improving. It’s also proof that we shouldn’t get too giddy just yet because, while there’s been significant improvement, there’s still plenty of need for improvement in the coming months.
According to CBS’s reporting, “U.S. authorities apprehended more than 94,000 migrants in between ports of entry along the southern border, a precipitous drop from May, when more than 132,000 people, including about 84,000 families and over 11,000 unaccompanied minors, were apprehended.
