Illegal crossings in western Arizona have swung sharply before, and there are several reasons for the recent drop. But Anthony Porvaznik, chief of the Border Patrol’s Yuma sector, said the so-called Migration Protection Protocols have been a huge deterrent, based on agents’ interviews with people arrested.

The Trump administration last year ordered that Mexicans who enter the United States illegally should be returned deep into the country’s interior in an effort to solve the ongoing crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border.
In years past, foreigners who illegally entered the United States were simply released into Mexico right at the border — or sometimes released in the United States with an order to appear at court months later (few did).
