Illegal border crossings plummeted after the Trump administration made more asylum-seekers wait in Mexico for hearings in U.S. court. The drop has been most striking on the western Arizona border, according to the Associated Press.

Illegal border crossings in Arizona “plunged” in December of 2019, according to the Associated Press, dropping a staggering 90% year-over-year following a Trump administration change in policy that has asylum seekers waiting for their adjudication hearings in Mexico and not in the United States.
“50,753 people were arrested for trespassing from Mexico in December. It marks the third month in a row that more than 50,000 people have illegally crossed into to the U.S. Another 10,000 people who tried to enter through ports were told they lacked the documents to do so,” according to the Examiner. “Illegal immigration apprehensions at the southern border have skyrocketed since Trump’s first few months in office, when 15,000 to 20,000 people were reported being apprehended per month.” More
President Trump’s policies are working but you wouldn’t know it by the MSM. This was the biggest fear of the Democrats. They said they opposed the wall because it was “immoral.” The truth is, they opposed the wall because they knew it would work.
This is one of the best successes of the President’s Campaign promises, Border Security, if Hillary Clinton had won the elections, we would have two more millions of illegal immigrants in the country

This does not mean that we can become complacent on illegal immigration only that it is time to double our efforts to get the message out to those that wish to come here that there is a correct way to do it.Don't forget to Like Godfather Politics on Facebook and Twitter, and visit our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
