By PAUL BEDARD, Washington Examiner
A damning new report on the Obama administration's immigration policies and actions shows that about half of illegal immigrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border are actually caught, and demands for asylum have exploded 900 percent.
What's more, despite claims that up to 81 percent of all illegals are apprehended crossing the border, just 54 percent actually are, according to the report from Institute for Defense Analyses. The report, done for DHS, is titled "Assessing Southern Border Security."
