Illegal border crossing decline since Trump took office

KRGV:
Local law enforcement said the number of people crossing the border illegally is on the decline.

We met with Hidalgo County Precinct 3 deputy constable Joel Contreras for a ride along in Anzalduas Park on Tuesday. They patrol the area on their overtime shifts.

During the trip, we found a mother and daughter from Honduras and a Chinese national had been detained by another officer, deputy constable Reynaldo Trevino.

Contreras said it isn’t unusual to find Chinese nationals crossing with Central Americans. He said many of them don’t stay in the Rio Grande Valley, let alone Texas.

“Mostly the southern states, and a lot of them (go to) California,” he said.
...
The area is also known for human trafficking.  Enforcing the law appears to be working to stop some illegal crossings and has also been credited with some self-deportations back into Mexico and into Canada.

Growing up in the Lower Rio Grande Valley, I remember watching KRGV.
