Trump’s Controversial Border Policies are Working

November 30, 2019   |   by James G. Dalton

The media had a meltdown over the conditions at the southern border over the summer and were just as quick to condemn the policies enacted by Trump to fix the problem.

The proof is all in the results and the results show that President Trump’s policies worked.

According to Fox News:

DONNA, Texas — As the migrant crisis at the southern border hit its peak over the summer, media outlets were filled with stories of overcrowded detention centers, adults and children living in squalid conditions, and overworked and exhausted border agents.

Amid a series of sweeping actions from the Trump administration — including the expansion of the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) that return migrants to Mexico to await their immigration hearings, increased cooperation with countries south of the border like Guatemala, and new border wall — apprehensions have declined dramatically by more than 70 percent since May.

Rio Grande Valley Sector Chief Rodolfo Karisch told Fox News at the facility that the difference from the summer is dramatic. While agents had been apprehending 12,000 migrants per week in the sector at one point, now that rate is about 2,000 per week.

What has also helped agents, specifically in terms of supplies, is the $4.6 billion emergency funding supplemental for the border that was passed in June and provided humanitarian aid for dealing with the migrant crisis.

Democrats continue to claim that President Trump’s policies are too harsh and are not working properly but the Trump administration has promised a balanced approach by being tough on immigration while also caring for the migrants that are in custody.

    Even 2000 per month is 2000 too many. We need to work harder to drop that number significantly. As a law abiding citizen and Vietnam Era Veteran, I for one am not a believer that we should provide free education, free health care and free room and board. My tax dollars need to go to fixing infrastructure, securing the electrical grid and caring for American Citizens before providing illegal immigrants with anything. Just MHO.

      Amen ! Stop illegal immigration!.! One is too many and I totally agree that they should not receive the benefit that we as taxpayers have paid for with our blood sweat and tears!

      I am not opposed to legal immigration so that we can vet who comes to our country and they can support themselves and become an asset instead of millions of liabilities which is what we have now in most cases!

      Well, Gary Lambert, it may be YourHumbleOpinion, but it is also MyHumbleOpinion also. GMTA! We do not have room for moochers who want to live for free off of what others have done & are doing. We have room only for legitimate Americans who are willing to WORK for their living & EARN every penny of it. Wonder if the mexicans have ever thought or heard of the word SAVE? That is a wonderful thing we practice here in the US & even if you only can put away in your savings a penny a day, still it adds up. After a while you’ll be surprised at how much you have saved. Then when either you are broke & need to pay a bill or an unexpected occassion arises, VIOLA, you have the money because you did not squander it away on piddley things you REALLY didn’t need. While saving, one also needs to learn not to squader away their money on unnecessary things like candy, popcorn, snack foods, potato chips, things that sparkle, things that turn you on the instant you see them but after having them at home for awhile you loose interest in them, etc. Also, don’t pay to have OTHERS do things for you. Lern to do them yourself. Another way to save money. Same goes for grocery coupons. Use them!
      Well, I guess I’ve had my say. IE, this was my IMHO 🙂

    Great job. We still need more media coverage at the border and build the rest of the wall. Send these migrants as far south as possible. Stop translateing so much spanish language in the USA

    Yes, If we translate everything to Spanish for them, there is no need to learn English. If we give them FREE housing, food clothes, shoes, education, all paid for by American taxpayers, there is no need for them to work–just get on our Welfare system (they all get instructions how to do that). Yes, America–Land of the FREE stuff. I’m sick and tired of supporting them so they can come here and vote. Our town just passed a Billion dollar school tax assessment we have to pay for , so they can build more schools to educate all the illegals flooding into our Sanctuary city. We need to stop this Mess. If you want to live in America, before you come–Learn English, Come with a Skill and APPLY LEGALLY like everyone else has to do. This ‘Free-for-all’ has to STOP!

      Many people probably don’t even know this but, The Social Security Administration has a rule that if you do not speak English then you are entitled to Social Security Disability Insurance. This is because our government says if you can not speak English it inhibits you from finding gainful employment. The Social Security Administration has been trying to get this changed but the Democratic Congress blocks them every time they try and get this rule removed. I am 100% disabled Veteran and can not work yet it took me 5 years and three court hearings before I finally got approved for Social Security Disability, Yet if you do not speak English then you already qualify for this benefit and you do not have to be a citizen to get it. How backwards is that?

        I agree with you that I do not think it should get them money out of CITIZENS’ pockets. More like it should be REQUIRED of any immigrant who does not know it to LEARN English unless they’re on their death bed & then we don’t want them entering the country to share whatever is killing them! I’m with you. The dumb government should make mandatory for ALL people who come in the country that they must speak English before receiving ANY benefits. People who get them immeadiately are lucky and undeserving to get any since they didn’t work for them as people born here must do, so they really do not deserve them at all & should be thankful to get anything.

    You keep saying that if they commit a crime then they will be deported. Well, the minute they step one foot on US land they have committed a crime. Stop playing with them and send them back, all of them. It’s our tax dollars that are taking care of them, and I don’t like it. I’m with Mike, stop speaking Spanish and learn English.

      The good news is the state of Oklahoma no longer recognizes dual language they passed a law a while back to remove dual language in their state. now if the other states would only follow their example.

    Exactly, Doris, the moment someone crosses the border illegally, they have committed a crime, Send them back, ALL OF THEM, and immediately STOP translating to Spanish or any other language. The official language in USA is English, learn it and speak fluently before even thinking about entering the USA. All other countries, there is ONE language, you learn it or go back to where you cam from. I am fluent in 5 languages and travel all over the world and consider its high time to STOP pandering to illegals.

    I am with the President all the way so far, he may be a little harsh at times but he has put our country at the top, The democrats have done nothing but give our money away. For the last three years they have done little, as you can see, trying to impeach him and who is paying for all this crap, they keep taking and giving to people that are here illegally, just come in the right way and speak English. I will vote for him again.

    It drives me crazy when the Demorats try to put illegals in the same class as legal immigrants like my grandfather who came here legally from Italy and went through the process of becoming a proud American citizen.

    Way back in the time of Reagan when, he got *-*-* by signing off on a ‘we will never let this happen again’ promise from the Democrat and RINOs, the Psychotically Radical Socialist Democrats who were planning on a communist socialist America probably got so excited they pooped.
    They got the first tool for gerrymandering future voting. They knew they would wear out the black American population they had been using for years after they worked them for as much disturbance, discontent and distrust as they could. There were many who warned of just such a thing. But oh no, these politicians at heart are Americans and truly have the good of the country uppermost in mind. Yeah, just not the country of our constitution. You know the story from there, Whimpey presidents, more disguised PRSDs getting in office, scads of laws making allowance and accommodation for all the new people, laws that were not given a popular referendum. I think you know the story.
    We have many places with barriers that it is unlawful to cross or damage. Crossing ones that ones that block off a secure area have very harsh penalties available, damaging them are quite severe as well. So if there is a fence, a wall or other barrier to restrict entry to the US by other than legal means and there is already ample evidence that many crossing those barriers harm citizens of the US then the full power of the security barrier laws should be applied to any crossing and/or damaging the barrier. Maybe make the first 3 or 4 feet on the US side a security zone. The proper wording escapes me but I think it could be derived to be no inconvenience to citizens bordering the area.
    Violate such a barrier and get whisked off to federal prison or detention tried, sentenced, go to prison or just deported immediately with a prison sentence waiting should they return. I kind of like the idea of contracting such a prison, maybe with Turkey, for a Turkish prison in Turkey. Crossing into the US where a physical barrier has not been placed is still a problem, maybe a security strip with warning sign would work. But at least it would tend to be a better funnel to a more effective catch zone.

    If the Democrats would WORK WITH the President and the Republicans can you imagine how much BETTER we would be as a nation and a people? According to the Democrats, they would rather DESTROY America under their Socialistic “democracy,” instead of BUILDING UP America under a Republican president. THAT IS PURE EVIL PRIDE and ARROGANCE. They believe they are far superior to the most of us. Their IMPUDENCE is exceeded only by their OBTUSE ASININE MENTALITY!!!!!!

    They’re just pissed off because they didn’t do it. In a way Mexico is paying for the wall. Now they’re criminals aren’t able to come here. Also the drug cartels have to find other ways to get their illegal drugs to our country!!!
    Thank You President Trump!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Securing ones Borders is not controversial, but is intelligent planning ! A Country without secure borders is not a Country, but is a zoo for criminals and illegals too !!
