Thanks to Donald Trump ending Obama’s stealth amnesty and letting police enforce the law, the U.S. border with Mexico is more secure than it’s been in decades.
A new report shows that, under Trump, the number of people trying to enter the United States illegally has fallen to the lowest level in 45 years!
Border agents arrested 310,531 illegal aliens coming into the country during the fiscal year, which ended September 30.
Even though that’s way too high, it’s the lowest number of illegals trying to cross the border since 1971.
The highest was at the end of the Clinton administration, in 2000, when the number skyrocketed to an amazing 1.56 million.
The reason illegals aren’t brazenly breaking the law anymore isn’t hard to figure out: There’s a new sheriff in town.
Agents say illegal crossings started falling the day Trump was inaugurated.
Deportations from the interior of the country also rose by 37 percent since January 20, according to figures from the Department of Homeland Security.
What changed? President Trump decided to take the handcuffs off the border patrol and let them do their jobs, according to America’s chief immigration enforcement officer.
“Overall removals are down, because the border’s under better control than it has been in 45 years,” said Tom Homan, who is acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
Obama shackled agents by pretending that Congress had passed the DREAM Act. His offer of mass amnesty to young people spiked the number of illegal aliens beginning in 2011.
That brought waves of MS-13 gang members from Central America to heartland America, committing a rash of violent crimes – even stabbing a Maryland man 100 times, decapitating him, and ripping his heart out.

Trump has made busting these gangs his top priority.
“If you’re in this country illegally, we’re looking for you, and we’re going to look to apprehend you,” Homan said.
This year, officers arrested 83 percent more illegals who belonged to violent street gangs than during the Obama era.
And they’re working to arrest violent criminals before they come to America. “With our Central American partners we have charged 4,000 members of the vicious MS-13,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said last week in Toledo. Only a few hundred of them were already in the U.S.
But Congressional stall tactics from members of both parties may be undoing the progress Trump has made. Illegal border crossings started to rise in May, the DHS reports.
President Trump is calling on Congress to hire 10,000 more ICE agents and 5,000 more Border Patrol officers, and build a wall across the Southern border.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the drop in border crossings shows “the effectiveness of the Trump presidency” and called it “another success story.”
But it’s a success story that most network media anchors have ignored.
