Trump Effect: Experts Say Border Crossings Already Down

According to law enforcement at the Texas border, there has been a noticeable drop in the number of border crossings since late January, signaling recognition that newly inaugurated President Trump’s crackdown on illegal immigration had already begun.

In January, the President announced a series of executive orders providing the Department of Homeland Security “with additional resources, tools and personnel to carry out the critical work of securing our borders, enforcing our immigration laws, and ensuring that individuals who pose a threat to national security or public safety cannot enter or remain in our country.”

And it appears to be working.

Deputies noticed the decrease in border crossings along the Rio Grande in locations that are considered illegal immigration “hot spots.”

Via KRGV:

Local law enforcement said the number of people crossing the border illegally is on the decline.

We met with Hidalgo County Precinct 3 deputy constable Joel Contreras for a ride along in Anzalduas Park on Tuesday. They patrol the area on their overtime shifts.

Contreras said the area is commonly used for human trafficking. He said it’s been years since the last time drugs were found on the trek of land.

He added the area is not what it used to be. Deputies noticed a decrease in people crossing towards the end of January. He said the drop in numbers won’t take their boots off the ground.

 

President Trump’s executive orders, designed to “protect the American people” as “the highest priority of our government and this Department,” have been effective already, according to these reports.

  1. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog
    and was wondering what all is required to get setup? I’m assuming
    having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% sure.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Many thanks

  2. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it
    to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  3. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?

    one of the best in its niche. Fantastic blog!

    my opinion, it would make your website a little bit more interesting.
