WE DO NOT HAVE A BORDER: A Report From Del Rio, Texas

Del Rio is located within Val Verde County which consists of approximately 3,200 square miles of mostly ranch land surrounding the man-made Amistad Reservoir, and across from the Mexican city of Acuna.

I arrived in Del Rio on June 3rd, with a fact-finding delegation organized by the Texas Public Policy Foundation’s Border Security Coalition of which the Center is a member. The Border Patrol’s processing capacity is around 120 people – the day before 800 people were apprehended.

The total numbers are staggering.
