These numbers show Democrats’ calls to “abolish ICE” are backfiring on them in a big way
Democrats are doing everything they can to stop President Trump from enforcing our immigration laws and securing the border.
When the Trump-haters attacked him on the campaign trail for his plan to build the wall, Donald Trump famously said, “The wall just got 10 feet higher.”
And now these numbers show Democrats’ calls to “abolish ICE” are backfiring on them in a big way.
Under the Obama administration, illegal immigrants were allowed to invade our country at an unprecedented level.
President Trump is now deporting a jaw-dropping number of illegal immigrants.
The Washington Examiner reports:
The National Guard’s deployment to the southwest border in mid-April has led to 10,805 “deportable alien arrests” of people who illegally entered the United States from Mexico, a U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokeswoman said Monday.
Because guardsmen are military personnel and not law enforcement officers, they cannot apprehend illegal immigrants. But CBP officers and Border Patrol agents apprehended thousands of people that guardsmen helped point out.
The National Guard’s presence also helped lead to the interception of more than 3,300 others who were turned back before they crossed into the U.S., CBP press secretary Corry Schiermeyer said in an email to the Washington Examiner. The Guard’s deployment has also led to an additional 11,686 pounds of marijuana being seized as a result of their work.
When Donald Trump ran for president he exposed the border crisis to millions of Americans and promised to turn it around.
The Department of Homeland Security has also reported an 18 percent drop of illegals who were either turned away or apprehended while crossing the border illegally between May and June, when Trump’s zero tolerance policy went into effect.
The “bad hombres” now know they can’t get away scot free like they did under Barack Obama’s catch-and-release policy or use children as human shields so they have stopped trying to cross illegally.
Taking 11,686 pounds of drugs away from the Mexican drug cartel and off American streets is also an accomplishment that the media is refusing to report on.
The Democrats have been a roadblock, preventing President Trump from building the wall so far into his first term in office.
But that has not stopped the President from doing what he can to solve the illegal immigration crisis.
The more Trump wins on the border, the worse Democrats chances look to retake Congress in the 2018 Midterm elections.
