Donald Trump’s 2016 victory was fueled in large part by Americans who wanted a president who would be tough on illegal immigration.
The Left knows if President Trump’s policies succeed, their 2020 election hopes are doomed.
Now, President Trump just scored a major victory when U.S. Customs and Border Protection released these numbers.
Trump has refused to back down when Democrats have tried to stymie his efforts to crack down on illegal immigration.
In addition to finding funding to build the wall, Trump was forced to play hardball with Latin American countries to get them to do something to stop migrant caravans from flooding into the U.S.
And a new report from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shows it’s working.
Fox News reports:
The number of migrants encountered by U.S. authorities at the border with Mexico has dropped below 100,000 for the first time in five months amid increased collaboration by Mexico and Guatemala to crack down on the flow of humanity, according to government data released Thursday.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) encountered 82,049 people in July, down 21 percent from June when there were 104,344 people and down 43 percent from May. The number of families and minors crossing the border also dropped.
To avoid punishing tariffs threatened by the Trump administration, Mexico agreed in June to dramatically expand its border enforcement efforts. The country has employed a variety of tools — including a giant X-ray and Mexican National Guard troops — to uphold its end of the bargain and catch hundreds of migrants.
Guatemalan officials have also played a role, recently agreeing to what’s known as a “safe third country” pact with the U.S., meaning anyone coming through that country from El Salvador or Honduras would not be able to claim asylum in the U.S. The agreement was made even as Guatemalan courts blocked the effort. U.S. officials believe it will be in effect by the end of the month.
While the Left throws a fit over President Trump’s immigration enforcement, the numbers show the policy is successful.
And, in the end, that’s what most Americans care about.
