Democrats are hysterically trying to prevent President Trump from implementing the immigration policies that voters indicated they want, but potential illegal immigrants seem to have gotten the message:
Arrests of people caught trying to sneak into the United States across the Mexican border plummeted in March to the lowest monthly figure in more than 17 years, the head of the Department of Homeland Security reported.
That’s a likely sign that fewer immigrants are trying to make the trek into the United States.
Secretary John Kelly said the steep decline in arrests is “no accident” and credited President Donald Trump’s approach to illegal immigration.
Though the Trump administration has not yet changed how the border is patrolled, the president’s tough talk on immigration — including plans to build a border wall — and his stepped-up arrests of immigrants living in the country illegally have likely acted as deterrents.
That certainly makes sense. It appears that American citizens already owe President Trump a debt of gratitude.
