WASHINGTON—Two weeks ago the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced that the numbers of unaccompanied children and adults with children apprehended at the Southwest border had declined significantly in the month of July. At the current rate, the numbers in the month of August will be even lower. However, Secretary Johnson stated then that we must guard against a reversal of this trend, and DHS’s efforts to prevent and deter illegal migration across the Southwest Border continue. As part of this overall campaign, in July Secretary Johnson and the Department of Justice announced Operation Coyote, a surge in personnel to the Rio Grande Valley to target and dismantle human smuggling operations, and to interdict the flow of money to these organizations.
