President Trump has made illegal immigration the keystone of both his election message and his presidency and it appears that his efforts are already taking affect.
The wall hasn’t even been built and the illegal immigration numbers are way down!
The border patrol released that normally they see a 10% – 20% decrease in illegal immigration in the months of January and February but those numbers don’t mean anything.
Illegal immigration is down 40% since President Trump took office!
U.S. Customs and Border Patrol reported that the number of illegal border crossings dropped from 31,578 to 18,762 persons. Kelly said border agents usually see a 10 to 20 percent increase in illegal immigrant apprehensions from January to February.
“The drop in apprehensions shows a marked change in trends,” Kelly said. “Since the administration’s implementation of executive orders to enforce immigration laws, apprehensions and inadmissible activity is trending toward the lowest monthly total in at least the last five years.”
People are now thinking twice before they are jumping the border and it’s all because of President Trump.
