The U.S. official in charge of the troubled effort to seal the U.S.-Mexico border said Wednesday that the recent wave of deadly violence in the region is a sign that his efforts are bearing fruit.
"I would not say it is a sign of success," said Mark Borkowski, executive director of the Secure Border Initiative (SBI) at the Department of Homeland Security. "The increase in violence is a symptom that the border is more secure, because it is a reaction to it."
