The federal government spends tens of billions of dollars per year to crack down on illegal immigration, William La Jeunesse reported on Tucker Carlson Tonight.

"Border security doesn't begin at the border, it begins in Washington where policy is set," he said.

According to recent statistics, 52 percent of all federal prosecutions relate to immigration.

La Jeunesse also reported that much of the problem is not necessarily coming directly from Mexico, but from people fleeing Central America.

About 250 unaccompanied children are caught every day by law enforcement along our southern border--and that figure does not include families and other people.

While a single conviction of immigrating illegally can bar a person from applying for admittance into the United States for 10 years, the problem that often arises is that those charged don't always show up for their court date.
