When they hear that maybe there’s an obstacle between free stuff and them.
For the first time this year, the monthly number of invaders raping the American border has decreased.
How could this be?
The number of people taken into custody along the U.S. southern border fell 28 percent in June, a drop that U.S. authorities say reflects the early impact of Mexico’s crackdown on Central American migration.
Border crossings typically rise in the spring and slump during the scorching summer months, but the drop registered from May to June was significantly larger than in previous years, according to Homeland Security statistics released Tuesday. U.S. authorities detained 104,344 people along the border last month, down from 144,278 in May.
June was the fourth month in a row in which border arrests exceeded 100,000, and the total was more than twice the 43,180 people taken into custody in June 2018 and a nearly fivefold increase over June 2017, when authorities detained 21,673.
President Trump has treated the monthly U.S. Customs and Border Protection arrest totals like a stock index for the success of his immigration policies, periodically erupting at Homeland Security officials as the numbers soared to a 13-year high.
In late May, with holding cells along the border overflowing and Central American migrants streaming across in groups of as large as 1,000, Trump forced emergency negotiations with Mexico by threatening to impose potentially crippling tariffs — a political gambit aimed at shifting responsibility for the border crisis to a foreign government.
The move spurred immediate action: Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s administration persuaded Trump to delay the economic penalty by promising that Mexico would dramatically increase enforcement efforts and work with the United States to overhaul regional asylum policies.
Mexico has since deployed thousands of national guard troops to patrol its borders and stop migrants traveling along railways and roads, at times grabbing families just steps from U.S. soil along the banks of the Rio Grande. Mexico said it has increased deportations 33 percent since the deal.
In other words, doing something about this invasion is better than not doing anything about it.
America has been doing nothing significant to stop the incoming flow of hell-world hordes so far. On the contrary, so-called humanitarian policies like not shooting the invaders and providing food, clothing and shelter for them provide incentives for more of them to come here.
The first action that has any significant effect on this problem doesn’t really change that.
While it probably will take months to see whether Mexico’s enforcement efforts have a sustained effect on migration, U.S. officials said the June numbers appear to be a first step toward controlling what is widely considered a humanitarian crisis that has been overwhelming the U.S. immigration system.
“The southern border is being policed very well by Mexico,” Trump told reporters Friday. “You’ll see the numbers starting to come in very well.”
See? Mexico is policing the southern border, not America. America is still the Home of the Freebies.
The whole thing just tells the world that Trump had to force Mexico to do his job for him because America is a dysfunctional country with no self-preservation instinct, and which has a government full of people that hate it so much that they want to see it radically changed to the opposite of what it was intended to be when founded.
Anything not being directly done by America is a half-measure at best.
Half-measures won’t fix this mess.
Nearly 700,000 migrants have been detained along the U.S. border during the first nine months of the 2019 fiscal year, a total not seen since 2007, when the majority of those arrested were Mexican adults who could be quickly processed and deported.
Those arriving today are far more likely to seek out U.S. agents and claim fear of persecution, the first step toward initiating the process of seeking asylum. Because of court restrictions on the amount of time that minors can be held in immigration jails, parents who arrive with a child are typically issued a court appointment and released into the interior of the United States.
Don’t forget those numbers and don’t forget the actual numbers are likely much higher.
This truly is a “humanitarian crisis,” not for the freeloaders coming in but for the American people.
