John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Border Apprehensions In 2019 Have Already Surpassed Last Year’s Total

Border Patrol agents, halfway through fiscal year 2019, have already apprehended more migrants nationwide than all of fiscal year 2018.

Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) announced that 418,000 nationwide apprehensions have occurred this fiscal year to date. A total of 404,142 nationwide apprehensions took place in the entirety of fiscal year 2018, a CBP spokeswoman told The Daily Caller News Foundation. The numbers indicate that 2019 is on pace for a stellar year in border apprehensions.

The vast majority of the captures are taking place on the U.S. Southwest border, where 414,000 foreign nationals were nabbed between ports of entry since October — the beginning of the 2019 fiscal year. Compared to the 2018 fiscal year, only 396,579 apprehensions were made on the Southwest border.

The escalating situation is prompting more calls from immigration enforcement leaders to do something.

“We don’t have room to hold [detainees], we don’t have the authority to remove them, and they are not likely to be able to be allowed to remain in the country at the end of their immigration proceedings,” acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan said Wednesday during a press conference in Hidalgo, Texas.

McAleenan — making his first public appearance since President Donald Trump tapped him to lead DHS — blamed weak immigration and asylum laws for attracting Central Americans to come to the U.S.-Mexico border. The acting DHS chief said legislative reform is necessary to alleviate the crisis.

“Without action from Congress, criminals will continue to profit from human misery along our border,” McAleenan continued Wednesday. “It’s clear that all of our resources are being stretched thin. The system is full and we are beyond capacity.”

March, with a total of 103,492 migrants turned back or apprehended at the southern border, marked the highest month in over a decade. Experts predict the numbers to rise as the summer months approach and more migrants decide to take the trek across Mexico.
