mexico border: Families accounted for more than one-third of people who were stopped at the border, according to CTV. Commissioner Kevin McAleenan called the increase a direct response to gaps in the legal framework, adding, we're not surprised by it, but it's been a very stark trend. The number of families arriving at the Mexico border reached 15,955, up from 12,274 in July, according to Customs and Protection. The numbers offer a glimpse into the impact of the Trump administration's zero tolerance policy on illegal crossings introduced in April, which resulted in the separation of more than 2,500 children from their parents. The statistics also come as the midterm elections are approaching and immigration remains a key issue in campaigns across the country. President Donald Trump effectively ended the practice of separating families in June amid heavy criticism. (www.immigrantscanada.com). As reported in the news.
