    Lawmakers looking for solution to immigration issue

    Republicans and Democrats still can't agree on the steps that should be taken to secure the Southern border. It seems the only thing the two parties agree on is that there is a problem, however, what needs to be done, much less how to do it or pay for it is a continuing battle. FOX's Leland Vittert reports.

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - A new report shows federal immigration prosecutions in New Mexico posted the biggest increase of any of the nation's 94 judicial districts during the first 11 months of the federal fiscal year that ended on Oct. 1.

Prosecutions in New Mexico's federal judicial district jumped by 11 percent from the previous year. The state is on pace to post the most prosecutions since tracking began in 1986.

Meanwhile, prosecutions fell in Arizona by 22 percent and by 13 percent in the Southern District of California.

The report was compiled by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University that tracks federal government enforcement activities.

Clearinghouse co-director Sue Long tells the Santa Fe New Mexican prosecutions are up nationally but she was surprised by the big increase in New Mexico.
