In the first month of Donald Trump’s presidency, illegal immigration is down by almost one-third, according to U.S. Customs.
Illegal immigration across the southwest border plummeted in January, compared to December, as the flow of both illegal immigrant families and children traveling alone dried up, according to numbers released by Customs and Border Protection.
The numbers are still high compared to past years — indeed, it’s the worst January in records dating back to 2012.
But total apprehensions of migrants trying to sneak across the border fell 27 percent on a month-to-month basis, to 31,575. And the number of inadmissible migrants who showed up at the southwest’s ports of entry fell 28 percent, to 10,899.
Fear is a tremendous motivator, and illegals are scared at the prospect of the rule of law returning to the United States of America.
