In testimony today before Congress, it was revealed that illegal border crossings are down by TWO THIRDS through March, an incredible accomplishment.
Illegal immigration across the U.S.-Mexico border has continued to fall under President Trump, dropping 67 percent through the end of March, the former border commissioner told Congress on Tuesday.
That’s even bigger than the drop reported for February, when the number of illegal immigrants caught — a yardstick for the overall flow — dropped by 40 percent.
“It’s actually up to 67 percent drop compared to last year,” David V. Aguilar, a former chief of the Border Patrol and former acting commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, told the Senate Homeland Security Committee.
This makes total sense. Obama bragged about amnesty over and over to the point that people in Mexico and other countries were spreading rumors that all you had to do was cross over and Obama would give you legal status. Whatever else Trump’s loud mouth has done, he’s done wonders by making it clear that illegal immigration would not be tolerated under his presidency.
They haven’t released the official numbers yet, but..
But a drop anywhere close to the 67 percent figure Mr. Aguilar cited would be stunning, and suggests the early steps the president has taken to free up agents to enforce immigration laws at the interior and the border, and his plans to build a border wall, have deterred tens of thousands of would-be crossers.
Keep deporting, and a border wall may not even be necessary!!
Even as a critic of this administration, I have to applaud Trump for this great success.
