CBP Commissioner To Stress Immigration Dangers

Updated: Wednesday, July 2 2014, 06:37 AM CDT
MISSION, Texas (AP) -- U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Gil Kerlikowske is to highlight the dangers of illegal immigration by visiting a South Texas riverfront park that's a busy crossing point.
 
Kerlikowske's visit to Anzalduas Park in Mission comes two days after Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson delivered a similar message on a visit to McAllen.
 
More than 52,000 unaccompanied children have been detained since October after they entered the United States illegally, so the Obama administration is pressing to spread the word that the children won't be allowed to stay.
 
On Monday, Johnson stressed the dangers of the journey. That same day, Hidalgo County Sheriff Eddie Guerra announced the death of a Guatemalan child found alone in June in brush about a mile from the Rio Grande near La Joya.
