The official numbers have come in and it looks like President Trump is doing a terrific job! Since the President took the oath of office on that cold day in January, there has been significant progress made rolling back the disastrous Obama policies of the previous eight years.
The Department of Homeland Security reports that Trump’s immigration overhaul efforts have drastically affected both border security and arrest numbers.
Check it out, per Daily Caller:
The Border Patrol made 310,531 arrests during the fiscal year that ended Sept. 30, a decline of 25 percent from 415,816 a year earlier, according to Customs and Border Protection (CBP). Typically used as a proxy measure for illegal immigration, border arrests fell to their lowest level since 1971.
In the interior of the country, immigration agents carried out 143,470 arrests, an increase of 25 percent from 114,434 a year earlier, according to figures from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
These dramatically improved numbers are the clear result of an administration that takes immigration and border security very seriously. Unlike the Obama administration, Trump’s policies are directed towards stopping illegal immigration, not encouraging it.
Fewer arrests at the border translated into a 6 percent drop in overall deportations from the previous year. That decline stems from fewer people being caught illegally crossing the border and was offset by an increase in interior removals.
The number of people deported after being arrested in the interior of the country climbed 25 percent to 81,603. Those numbers are up from 65,332 the previous year.
In the period between Trump’s inauguration and the end of the fiscal year, interior removals jumped a whopping 37 percent compared to the same period a year ago!
It’s about time that the American public had a president who is serious about putting law-abiding, hard-working citizens first. Former President Barack Obama would rather give an illegal immigrant a place to stay, thousands of dollars in social services, and the right to vote before he would give a natural citizen a job!
Well, thankfully, those days are over and we have a man of faith sitting behind the Resolute Desk at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue!
