California Border District Reverses Course on a Key Component of Operation Streamline
By Max Rivlin-Nadler

According to the latest data obtained by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, prosecutions for misdemeanor illegal entry in the Southern District of California skyrocketed to 928 cases in July, an 889 percent increase over the same month the previous year. Between April, when “zero tolerance” was announced, and June, the last full month before Operation Streamline was implemented, however, the number of monthly prosecutions had already risen from 153 to 882. So while Operation Streamline might now be seriously curtailed, as long as “zero tolerance” remains in full effect, prosecutions will most likely continue to reach record levels.
