We may be getting the crisis under some control... thanks to Mexicans doing the job that (Democrat) Americans won't do - enforce our border laws.

July migrant apprehensions plummeting 25%, Mexico’s help credited

Federal immigration officials, citing Mexico’s help and new Trump administration initiatives, are seeing far fewer illegal immigrants at the southern border than expected and now believe that those seized this month will be 25% fewer than in June, far more than the historic average drop.

What’s more, said Ken Cuccinelli, acting director of the Citizenship and Immigration Services, the number of migrants encountered at the border should continue to plummet as Mexico stretches its cooperation with the U.S. further across the southern border and changes to the asylum process kick in.

“If Mexico continues to cooperate I think the numbers are going to keep going down because part of what’s happening is we are still not all the way across the border with MPP. That’s what’s coming on-line now in the southern part of Texas, for instance, including the Rio Grande Valley, which is the No. 1 corridor. The effect that we’ve had so far is without hitting the No. 1 corridor. And that’s just now starting up and we’re very enthusiastic about that and the potential that has to stem the tide,” said the acting director, a former Virginia attorney general.

As more migrants are sent home without winning a ticket into the United States, he said that it will likely discourage the flow more from Central American nations.
