After another year of protecting the Yuma sector, the U.S Customs and Border Protection office has released its 2013 year end review.
Thomas Lines is a Supervisory Border Patrol Agent, and says the number of arrests made last year decreased.
"According to the 2013 fiscal numbers, we arrested about 6100 hundred compared to 20-12, when we arrested around 6500. More or less that’s a six percent decrease," says Lines.
Lines says this is a step forward, as it means less people are trying to cross into the US illegally.

"Marijuana seizures are up, so is the number of non -Mexicans trying to cross into the US in the Yuma sector," says Lines.
