How Trump turned tide of illegal immigration in first year: Border crossing hits 45-year low


llegal border crossing plunged to a 45-year low and arrests of illegal immigrants inside the U.S. surged in the first year of the Trump administration, according to year-end enforcement numbers that the Department of Homeland Security released Tuesday.
The figures reflected a stunning turnaround in immigration enforcement under President Trump, who made combating illegal immigration a cornerstone of his campaign for the White House.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection reported 310,531 apprehensions nationwide in fiscal 2017 that ended Sept. 30, a decline of 25 percent from a year earlier and the lowest level since 1971.

A total of 303,916 of Border Patrol arrests were along the Southwest border, which the agency said underscored the need for a border wall that Mr. Trump wants to build.
At the same time, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents arrested 143,470 illegal immigrants living in America, a 25 percent increase from the previous year.
Acting Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke credits Mr. Trump with reversing the policies of the Obama administration to unleash enforcement of immigration laws.

This is excellent. Sometimes, just sending a prevailing message of "You're not wanted here, Paco Taco" can help.

If increased enforcement is the answer, then why do we need to spend billions on a wall (where some taking of private property is going to be required to build it)?

I'm on record as preferring military patrols along the border rather than a wall.

I also would want to remove any kind of benefit for illegals in this country: medical care, education, finances, housing, etc.

The objective would be to send them a strong message that illegals are *NOT WANTED* here, and they won't benefit whatsoever from coming here illegally.

I wouldn't.

1) Neither South America nor Africa are countries.

2) In a comparative phrase it's "than", not "then".

Other than that, you make almost no sense at all.

It's like Yogi Berra allegedly once said about ball parks.  "Nobody goes to ball games any more.  It's too crowded."

Enforcing existing laws can do wonders.
