A Ready.News Staffer was watching this briefing, and was surprised to learn that in the first quarter of this year, 619 individuals from the People’s Republic of China were arrested crossing the U.S. Border. Last year, over 1600 were arrested. That’s a sharp increase over last year. Arrests of Pakistani and Afghan citizens were also markedly up this quarter.
