Even without having a new wall built illegal border crossings have plummeted since Donald Trump took office.
Overall, apprehensions dropped to just 11,129 in April. This marked the lowest number of apprehensions in decades, according to The Washington Times.
This marked a remarkable downward trend in illegal immigration that started when Donald Trump won the election.
A lot of the discussion about changes in our enforcement policy and the way we are going about doing business, we believe that has deterred people, said Homeland Security spokesman David Lapan. When you get here, it is likely you are going to get caught. You are going to be returned to your country.
During the last year of Obama’s term asylum claims were running about 15,000 a month. Since Mr. Trump took office, that number has dropped to under 5,000 a month. Many believe that vast majority of asylum claims are unfounded and nothing more than an attempted scam.
Of course, liberal groups continue to complain about illegal immigrants being treated for what they are…people who illegally attempt to enter our country.
