Donald Trump said he was going to STOP illegal immigration, and it looks like his Executive Order has done exactly that!
According to a new statistic delivered by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), illegal border crossings have dropped 40% in Trump’s first month in office.
This is all thanks to him allowing ICE to do their jobs and enforce the immigration laws already on the books.
The flow of illegal border crossings – measured by apprehensions and the prevention of ‘inadmissible persons’ apprehended at the southern border by U.S. Customs and Border Protection – dropped to 18,762 in February from 31,578 in January, DHS Secretary John Kelly said in a statement.
To make it an even bigger deal, Kelly revealed that normally in January-February the US border experiences a 10% RISE in illegal border crossings. This means that it’s effectively a 50% drop from Obama’s illegal crossing rate.
According to Kelly, the conclusion to draw from this is simple and clear,
“Early results show that enforcement matters, deterrence matters, and that comprehensive immigration enforcement can make an impact.”
So, way to go, Donald Trump! Apparently, we COULD have been stopping them this whole time just by enforcing the laws our elected officials wrote but the Democrats would not let us. SHAME ON THEM!!
