President Donald Trump has received a lot of backlash for both his comments and actions directed at putting an end to illegal immigration in America. While the President promised to build a wall along the Mexican border, its construction is still at least a year away. Still, somehow patrol arrests have dropped to a 45-year low, according to a report released on Tuesday.
Data suggests that the drop in border arrests is correlated to the increase in deportations and the consequential fear immigrants have in regards to entering the United States illegally.
According to sources,”detentions for people arrested away from the border jumped 25 percent. Those are made by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which arrested more than 143,000 during the 2017 fiscal year that ended on Sept. 30, according to the Department of Homeland Security.
Customs and Border Protection made more than 310,000 arrests during the 2017 fiscal year, including nearly 304,000 arrests along the Mexican border, the Department of Homeland Security said.
The statistic reflects a 25 percent decline from the previous fiscal year and the lowest level since 1971.”
To all the democrats who call President Donald Trump racist, the numbers don’t lie. Perception is reality and when a President is strong about foreign policy and illegal immigration, it trickles down, effecting the actions of our foes both foreign and domestic.
