11,000 Illegal Arrests as National Guard Border Deployment

July 18, 2018 | Brainwave Science


In April, the US President Donald Trump ordered a large number of National Guard troops to the southern U.S. border with Mexico, where illegal crossings were skyrocketing. Trump aforesaid the troops combine energies with Border Patrol agents to secure the border.

“The situation at the border has now reached a point of crisis. The lawlessness that continues at our southern border is fundamentally incompatible with the safety, security, and sovereignty of the American people. My Administration has no choice but to act,” Trump’s order said.


The National Guard’s deployment has resulted in 10,805 “deport-able alien arrests,” a Customs and Border Patrol spokesperson said Monday, based on the Washington Examiner. Additionally, the National Guard helped agents intercept significantly more than 3,300 others who were denied entry and turned back.

Overall, the Border Patrol has apprehended more than 250,000 illegal immigrants in the southwestern border sector in fiscal year 2018.

However, as the Examiner noted, National Guard troops aren’t permitted to arrest immigrants who cross the border illegally since they are not sworn law enforcement officers. Instead, guardsmen help Border Patrol agents’ identity and intercept potential illegal border crossers, who the Border Patrol then detain.

Guardsmen primarily help by giving air surveillance, allowing Border Patrol agents stuck at desks to head in to the| field for proactive law enforcement. In addition, they assist with infrastructure projects like clearing debris which makes it easier for immigrants to cover up.


 A lot of multidimensional problems and raising criminal threats are attributed to porous border. Countries experience a wide array of threats at their borders, from terrorists who might carry weapons of mass destruction to transnational organized crime such as trafficking, money laundering or counterfeiting, to unauthorized migrants intending to illegally live and work in a specific country all are possible.

The southern U.S. border with Mexico is one of the major part affected by the immigration, human trafficking and drug operations.  People trying to escape from poverty and bad life with the hope to find better place for living. They have all rights as anybody in this world. But how can authorities identify if the person entering the country is a refugee or a wannabe terrorist or a terrorist sympathizer, a criminal or a drug cartel member?

This is the most challenging part for law enforcement. Advance technologies can change anything these days they just need to look. Is there a technology out there that can help law enforcement with this problem of Immigration and Border Security?



iCognative by Brainwave Science is an ultramodern technology distinctly suited for agencies looking to enhance, upgrade or supplement their traditional investigative practices.

iCognative utilizes advancements made in the field of neuroscience and technology to enable a highly accurate identification of a person by distinguishing what a suspect, witness, or victim truly knows. Furthermore, the technology behind it is easy to use by law enforcement and provides valuable intelligence. Its mission is to relentlessly deliver truth and justice at a global level.

iCognative with its unique ability to conduct specific screening of people, can help border authorities successfully screen and investigate suspects to identify if the immigrant crossing the border is the terrorist or drug dealer.

Approximately 45 minutes test has 99% accuracy and measures brainwaves called P300/P300 MERMER to detect whether information under test is present or absent in a suspect’s brain. The human brain reacts involuntarily, so countermeasures, false positives and false negatives take no effect. The unique intelligence discipline that iCognative offers can help reveal hidden links and connections, which no other technology can provide.

iCognative and its solid technology supporting it can help the US Border Security forces including Border Patrol Agents keep the borders safe.
