Some new numbers on illegal immigrant arrests are causing concern in the on-going debate of how to keep our borders safe.

FOX's William LaJeunesse has the story from Los Angeles:

While the Obama Administration claims the U.S.-Mexican border has never been more secure, new numbers show otherwise. Border Patrol statistics claim that illegal immigrant arrests are up, 13% from this time last year; especially in Texas where apprehensions are up more than 50% in the Rio Grande Valley and more than 20% in other regions. The surge is coming not from Mexico, but Central America. We're told word is spreading there that if you want to live in the U.S., get in now before a cut-off date and more security promised in a new immigration bill.
