Border Arrests Increase

La Opinion, Eileen Truax Posted: Jan 06, 2010

New laws for those entering the United States by land or sea ports that took effect last June have resulted in increased arrests, reports La Opinin.

Statistics from the federal office of Customs and Border Protection show that between June and August of 2009, there was a 30 percent increase in the number of people who tried to cross the Mexican border and were arrested for giving false information about their citizenship or for using other peoples documents.

The new laws apply to people entering the United States from Mexico, Canada, Bermuda and countries of the Caribbean.
