Illegal border crossings at lowest level in 17 years
Jeff Sessions appeared on Howie Carr’s radio show earlier this week and he had some interesting numbers to share with the Boston talk icon and his listeners about the progress which has already been made at our Southern border.
Here is some of what he had to say:
“I’ve been excited about progress at the border … March was the lowest level of illegal entrants to the country in 17 years. It was 72% below the last month of the Obama Administration,” Sessions relayed to Carr. Building on his statements on Fox News’s Hannity, he added:
I thought if we had clear leadership by the President, by our officers, and tell people please don’t come illegally, if you want to come to America wait your turn. If we do that we’d see a decline, and so far it’s exceeded my expectation.
If these numbers are correct this is pretty impressive in a short period of time and it has been accomplished without building a wall but simply with the threat of actually enforcing the immigration laws which are already on the books.
It would appear as if potential illegal immigrants are not crossing the border in the same numbers simply because they are afraid the President will actually enforce the laws.
We know the Democrats oppose building a wall on the Southern border, and we also know the establishment Republicans oppose building a wall but if these numbers remain consistent we might not have to build the wall after all. Isn’t it interesting what can be accomplished simply by enforcing the law?
