Before former President Obama left office in January, he had succeeded in running the economy into the ground, increasing the unemployment rate, and allowing illegal immigration to skyrocket. How far? To the point that America had come to a critical mass and was ready to implode from the sheer weight of all the foreigners on public assistance.
The election of Donald Trump has put a stop to all of that!
The economy is turning around, people are going back to work and illegal immigration has dropped by a humongous 67% since the inauguration.
According to Right Wing News:
Illegal immigration just keeps dropping under President Trump’s oversight. It has dropped 67% through the end of March. The upholding of the rule of law and the moves to stop illegal immigration are having a pronounced effect. That is wonderful news. The drop in March is even bigger than February… in fact, much bigger. February’s drop was 40%. That’s just stunning. Not only have most quit trying to cross the border, many are self-deporting. That’s what I call real progress.
Illegal immigration hasn’t dropped this much since Reagan. He made the mistake of granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants in exchange for stepped up border enforcement. Reagan kept his word, the left didn’t. For the last 20 years millions have come across the border and this is the first time it has really slowed down. This indicates that ICE and the Border Patrol have now been freed up to do their actual jobs once more now that Barack Obama is gone.
The Washington Times reported:
Illegal immigration across the U.S.-Mexico border has continued to fall under President Trump, dropping 67 percent through the end of March, the former border commissioner told Congress on Tuesday.
That’s even bigger than the drop reported for February, when the number of illegal immigrants caught — a yardstick for the overall flow — dropped by 40 percent.
“It’s actually up to 67 percent drop compared to last year,” David V. Aguilar, a former chief of the Border Patrol and former acting commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, told the Senate Homeland Security Committee.
Customs and Border Protection did not immediately respond to a request for confirmation of the numbers Mr. Aguilar cited.
The agency has been releasing its monthly figures each month, though the March figures have not been released.
But a drop anywhere close to the 67 percent figure Mr. Aguilar cited would be stunning, and suggests the early steps the president has taken to free up agents to enforce immigration laws at the interior and the border, and his plans to build a border wall, have deterred tens of thousands of would-be crossers.
This is indeed good news! Now if only we could get the liberals on board with the idea of limiting the flow of refugees from countries who believe that child rape, female genital mutilation, wife beating and be-headings are normal, every day occurrences!
We might just begin to see some normalcy again!
