crimes, yet they were released without being deported, so i appreciate ms. vaughn mentioning the case where an unfortunate 21-year-old clerk had been brutally shot and killed for failing to deliver a pack of cigarettes to a criminally violent illegal alien who had been convicted and yet was on the streets of maricopa county. that's why i introduced grant's law here in congress, which should pass. it is a no-brainer, and it requires the very accelerated due process requirements ms. vaughn has mentioned. i wanted to talk specifically with regard to you, ms. vaughn, with regard to the apprehension rates reported. if we were to look at the apprehension rates, historically we'd see there were consistently over a million people, sometimes more than 1.5 million people apprehended at the border and that began to slow down in 2006 -- 2007 was the first time reported apprehension was beginning to decline below 1 million, but all experts talked about apprehension, border apprehensions, and this is the southern border. first is the multiplier, people who actually cross and remain in the country.
