Immigration "By the Numbers"

The Department of Homeland Security released a "By the Numbers" update on their website on September 10th. Here are a few of those numbers...

* 338 miles of border fence built
* 16,873 border patrol agents
* 85,000 employers enrolled in e-Verify
* 6.03 million employees checked using e-Verify
* 1,113 new worksite enforcement investigations
* Nearly 4,500 worksite enforcement administrative arrests

After a few days spent in grape vines earlier this week during an investigation, I have a new appreciation for that box of raisins and the people that have worked hard to bring it to us.
