It’s no secret that Trump’s “America First” approach to foreign policy and illegal immigration is controversial with the main stream media. It turns out his policies have been keeping the United States safer.
Because of the zero-tolerance approach to illegal immigration, taken by the Trump Administration, actual illegal crossings of the southern border have decreased.
And that’s without Trump’s border wall being built yet!
“Following the implementation of the Administration’s zero-tolerance policy, the June 2018 Southwest Border Migration numbers declined by 18 percent when compared to the previous month,” Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Press Secretary Tyler Q. Houlton said in a written statement obtained by Breitbart Texas.
“DHS will continue to enforce the rule of law and uphold our nation’s immigration laws as passed by Congress,” Houlton continued. “As we have said before, the journey north is dangerous and puts individuals in the hands of smugglers and traffickers.
Border Patrol agents arrested 34,114 illegal immigrants between the southwestern border ports of entry, officials stated in the June Southwest Border Migration Report. This number represents a decrease of 6,224 migrants arrested (18 percent). The decline marks the first time since January 2108 that the number of total apprehensions declined.”
Thankfully we have a President in the White House who is looking out for the American public and wants our borders secure!
