For the first time on record, Mexicans did not account for the largest single country of origin in fiscal There were more apprehensions of Guatemalans , and Hondurans , than Mexicans , , while El Salvador was fourth on the list with 89, apprehensions. The , apprehensions from these three countries outnumbered the total from Mexico even though their combined population Apprehensions of unaccompanied children ages 17 and younger also reached their highest level on record 76, in fiscal , compared with a previous high of 68, in fiscal In all other recent years, apprehensions of individual adults far outnumbered those of family members or unaccompanied children.
The changing profile of those being apprehended has strained the Border Patrol , which follows different legal protocols for detaining family members and single adults.
People apprehended by Border Patrol may be subject to expedited removal except for unaccompanied children but could also become eligible for asylum if officials determine they meet the definition of a refugee. Asylum applications have increased substantially in recent years, while the acceptance rates have remained constant. That was by far the largest percentage increase of any of the nine southwest Border Patrol sectors. Since , border apprehensions have typically peaked in the spring — most often in March — before declining during the hot summer months, when migration journeys become more perilous.
Stack Overflow for Teams is a private, secure spot for you and your coworkers to find and share information. I have an input field that has a gradient border, but the text inside is too close to it. And I have already tried padding-left , but that made the border on the left bigger, and the text was still close to the border. This is what it does when add padding-left.

General Accounting Office. Natural borders: In areas closest to cities, it has multiple layers.
In others, there is no wall because the terrain already provides a natural barrier, such as the widest parts of the Rio Grande River and at steep, rugged mountain ranges. Species biodiversity: The wall will potentially impact the 89 endangered species, species of migratory bird that call the area home, including numerous wildlife refuges as well as protected wetlands.
Endangered species include jaguar, Mexican gray wolf, ocelot and Sonoran Pronghorn. Geographic variety: The region runs from the California coast to the Texas gulf and crosses national parks, wildlife refuges, wilderness areas, national forests, bureau of land management lands as well as state, private and Native American tribal lands. Impacts: Construction, improvement and maintenance of border patrol roads, camps and facilities, operational noise and removal of vegetation harm wildlife. Its future: On January 25, , President Donald Trump signed an executive order to build and complete the remainder of the border wall on the U.
The Trump administration intends to invoke an anti-terror act, the REAL ID Act, to make that happen without following bedrock, environmental laws. Short-term and long-term consequences of a border wall on wildlife include increased wildlife mortality, disrupted wildlife migrations, reduced wildlife populations and altered waterflows. This unique and ecologically significant region spans desert, mountain and subtropical habitats, supporting thousands of species of plants and animals, dozens of human communities and many sites of remarkable cultural and historic importance.
From seas of saguaro cactus to pine-clad mountains and verdant river corridors, the borderlands harbor spectacular and irreplaceable natural wonders. Among many other habitats, the proposed wall could cut off valuable national wildlife refuge land in the Lower Rio Grande Valley LRGV , blocking access to natural spaces that provide opportunities for learning and outdoor recreation. Take a virtual tour along the border with our interactive map :. Imperiled species living in the borderlands include the jaguar, ocelot, Sonoran pronghorn, Mexican gray wolf, Peninsular bighorn sheep, and several varieties of ferruginous pygmy owl found nowhere else in the United States.
Their survival depends on connected habitat extending southward into Mexico. An extensive network of national parks, monuments, wildlife refuges, forests, wilderness areas and preserves protect essential wildlife habitat and important cultural resources on both sides of the border. In the Shadow of the Wall , a two-part Defenders of Wildlife report, explores these and other conservation consequences of extending the wall along the U.
Part I: Wildlife, Habitat and Collaborative Conservation at Risk provides an overview of how the wall affects wildlife, habitat, human communities, conservation and binational collaboration. Part II: Conservation Hotspots on the Line profiles five hotspots along the border—areas with high biological diversity created and preserved by significant investments in conservation lands and conservation projects. Hotspot by hotspot, Part II gives voice to the scientists, agency and conservation group employees, tribe members and citizens whose stories make a compelling case against the wall.
