Trump illegal immigration policy working?
The number of people arrested crossing the Mexico border into the US has dropped to the lowest level in 17 years, according to federal figures.Clearly, enforcement of the law is a deterrent to illegal immigration. This is another issue where Democrats have been dead wrong. It is similar to their statements about not being able to drill our way to low priced oil. They just say things that are not so because they do not want to enforce the law or drill for oil.
The Trump administration said there were fewer than 17,000 arrests of undocumented migrants in March.
Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly told Congress the decline was "no accident", crediting President Trump.
The US government began accepting bids on Tuesday from contractors to build a prototype for a border wall.
