Immigration arrests at US-Mexico border plummet to lowest monthly figure in more than 17 years – Thanks to Trump

 

The head of Homeland Security says arrests of people entering the United States illegally across the Mexican border plummeted last month. That’s a signal that fewer people are trying to sneak into the US.
John Kelly says in written testimony submitted to a Senate panel that fewer than 12,500 people were caught crossing the border last month.

That compares with more than 43,000 who were detained in February. It’s the lowest monthly figure in at least 17 years.
Kelly says the decrease is ‘no accident’ and credits President Donald Trump’s approach to illegal immigration. Daily Mail reports.
It is possible that some migrants rushed to the border after the election and before Trump took office.
