Back in June, many on the left pooh-poohed Trump's deal with Mexico to avoid tariffs in exchange for stronger efforts by Mexico to curb the flow of immigrants through their country into the United States. While the positive impact of that deal became apparent almost immediately, we now have a much clearer picture of the impact of the deal Trump struck with Mexico as border apprehensions have plummeted the past three months.
Immigration officials apprehended just over 64,000 migrants at the southern border in August a dramatic drop that the Trump administration is presenting as a sign its diplomatic engagement with Mexico and other countries is having positive effects on the ground.
The 64,006 migrants apprehended or deemed inadmissible represents a 22 percent drop from July, when 82,055 were apprehended, and a 56 percent drop from the peak of the crisis in May, when more than 144,000 migrants were caught or deemed inadmissible. While the numbers typically drop in the summer, the plummet is steeper than typical seasonal declines.
Meanwhile, the number of caravans has also dropped. In May, 48 caravans of migrants were recorded coming to the U.S. In August, the tally was six. Border Patrol now has fewer than 5,000 migrants in custody, down from 19,000 at the peak in the spring.
I just discussed this with my wife the other day. This is the first report I’ve seen about the huge drop in the caravan issue.
The deal with Mexico is working.
Now we need to ramp up removals.
It’s going to take a long time to restore the rule of law.
Yep, the Rat controlled MSM is very reluctant to report on anything that shows President Trump is doing anything good for our nation.
Trump Rally Arena already packed to rafters for Trump Rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina being held this evening commencing at 7:00 PM (EDT). Arena holds up to 10,000 folks. Mixed crowd, Whites, African-Americans, Hispanics and of course tons of all kinds and ages of women from little kiddies to serious grannies of all stripes. Should be a typical Trump barn burner, blockbuster affair!!! All having a great time. Shucks, folks....Trumpie gets more supporters and rally attendees in one day, then the entire Democrat Party candidates get in one month!!! And.....remember, Trumpie is holding another massive political rally in New Mexico, come September 16th, 2019!!! BE THERE!!!
Am hoping someone posts a live thread on FR...soon!!!
GREAT NEWS!! Dems will be screaming “NO WE NEED THESE PEOPLE IN SO THEY CAN VOTE DEMOCRAT”
I still want to know, has Mex. done anything to discourage Mex. from border jumping?
My money says NO!
We remain Mexico’s single largest source of revenue via “Repatriation” of funds from illegals already here.
That is hundreds of millions removed from our domestic economy annually.
Excellent...Thanks for posting!
Lets keep this FReepathon moving and git 'er done, Folks!
Thank you Trump and thank you Mexico.
Exactly. We already had ~50 million of these unwashed and unwanted infesting our country.
I'm grateful they aren't flooding across the border as before, but we're a loooooooong way off from celebrating.
And I've seen more here in Tulsa than ever. I know freepers were celebrating dumping them in sanctuary cities, but what'd they think was going to happen? They'd stay there?
If only ICE would just show up here and eat some tacos at one of our messycan restaurants, they could get their quotas of crimigrants plus some carne asada tacos in one stop.
Sooooo....seems like Mexico is paying
Illegal aliens are not hard to find anywhere, because they are everywhere.
Apprehensions doesn’t equal crossings.
Every summer the crossing drop due to the hot weather. I’ll not get excited until the numbers come out in cooler weather. Naw, I’ll not get excited until the numbers got to -50. Zero coming in and 50 going out.
Trump Rally...terrific!!! Diamond & Silk blew the house down, followed by Kimberly Guilfoyle who was outstanding and then Donald Trump JR. who was also awesome. What a lead-in to Trumpie!!!
‘’Hundreds of millions removed from our domestic economy annually’’. Try $22 billion a year. That’s how much Mexicans in America take out of this nations economy. Remittance’s sent back to Mexico by Mexicans here legally and illegally is that country’s number one source of operating capital. At least 126 nations in this world do the same. German nationals living and working here send back $2.8 billion. Germany for God’s sake!
Last I heard it was $40 billion per annum.
I did not have my reference handy and did not want to risk overstating the amount.
I think the point remains correct, we are being LOOTED by the invaders!
Since they do not do any comparison on last years or decades I will wait to get my hopes up. It is the summer months and traffic always slows.
