Report: New Border Patrol Initiative Is Not Keeping Migrants from Re-Entering the U.S.

A strategy to send migrants back to Mexico in areas far from where they entered isn’t working as initially planned, according to a new study that monitored the agency’s efforts, the Associated Press reports.

Lateral repatriations, as the strategy is called, are used to make it tough for migrants to reconnect with smugglers.

But an assessment of the plan has shown that migrants caught crossing the border often get captured again, the AP reported.

The most effective deterrents are criminal prosecutions and formal deportation procedures, the report found.
