The release of border crossers and illegal aliens into the United States interior by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has been cut by 85 percent in the four weeks since President Trump announced a migration deal with Mexico.
Between July 2 and July 9, DHS released about 1,500 border crossers and illegal aliens into American communities, federal data confirms. This indicates that DHS is releasing about 188 border crossers and illegal aliens every day into the country.
This is a significant drop in the catch and release of border crossers and illegal aliens in just four weeks, since Trump announced a deal with Mexico that mandates foreign nationals seeking asylum wait in Mexico while their claims are processed.
Four weeks ago, for example, about 1,214 border crossers and illegal aliens were being released every day into the interior of the U.S. From June 4 to June 11, about 8,500 border crossers and illegal aliens were released into the country.

Agreed; why, honesty would we let ANY of them in after they have broken our laws? I keep waiting to wake up back on the planet I came from.
Until outflows exceed influx, we are not winning.
A million people have already had their day and court and been ordered to be removed and are still here.
Then there is the 30+ million others.
If the border was secure because of our actions, the immigrants would start to pile up in Mexico, and they'd naturally enforce their southern border.
Pres. Trump gets things done.
This is significant progress.
“Getting them to enforce it thru economic pressure is a really perverse run-around.”
One thing I really like about Trump is he knows the end result he wants and finds every avenue possible to get there. About 10 years before I retired I had a revelation and came to realize that. After that my ability to get things done increased dramatically.
It’s called vision, baby...
“Until outflows exceed influx, we are not winning.”
Absolutely right. Well said.
A Drastic Drop in Migrant Arrivals on the Border: Whats Happening?
In the sleeping quarters, green cots that were once occupied by hundreds of parents and children on a single night were stacked against the wall. For dinner on Tuesday, just two tables were set for the handful of families staying at the large shelter near the California border that takes in migrant families arriving from Mexico.
At its peak, the facility run by Jewish Family Service of San Diego held more than 300 migrants dropped off by United States immigration authorities. Some days this spring were so busy that new arrivals had to be sent to overflow sites.
Now, the shelter is almost eerily empty. The number of people arriving there has plunged in recent weeks amid a precipitous decline in arrivals along the southern border, where the Department of Homeland Security said that apprehensions dropped 28 percent in June.
Customs and Border Protection authorities encountered 104,344 people crossing from Mexico last month, compared with 144,278 in May, which had marked a 13-year monthly high. At the nonprofit shelter here in San Diego, the effects have been dramatic. On Friday of last week, not a single migrant arrived at the facility, the first time this had occurred since it opened in October.
So whats happening? For my money, its either one of two answers. The betting fave has to be Beto ORourke in the parlor with the white supremacy mallet. If not that, maybe Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tantrum at Border Patrol facility scared them off.
To get the real answer, readers need to scroll down eight more paragraphs before the big reveal:
The United States policy to return people to Mexico and the pressure on Mexico to stop the migration are having a big impact, said Daniel Bribiescas, an immigration lawyer in Tijuana.
In other words, Donald Trumps get-tough policies have had their desired impact. No wonder the Gray Lady waited until the twelfth paragraph to mention it. In fact, eighteen thousands asylum seekers were sent back into Mexico last month, which might have sent a clear message to others not to bother with the trip for just economic reasons. At the moment, they wont even have court dates until October to resolve asylum applications, and historically less than ten percent of those will qualify anyway.
Along with the tariff threat, Trump also demanded that Mexico adopt the safe third country protocol while securing its own southern border. After brief but tense negotiations, Mexico avoided that demand, but only if it could show that they could end the wholesale deluge of migrants flocking to the southern border. And guess what? Readers have to scroll down considerably further to learn that incentives work:
Mexicos own heightened border security is also having an effect. To make good on a deal struck with President Trump last month to avert trade tariffs, more than 20,000 Mexican security forces, including members Mexicos newly-formed National Guard, have been deployed throughout Mexicos southern and northern border states.
At well-traveled but typically unguarded crossing points, the Mexican authorities have been intercepting buses traveling along major migrant corridors. In Tijuana, Mexican officers have been stopping and arresting migrants who do not have papers to prove that they can legally remain in the country.
For a whodunit story, the Times report is remarkable subtle. They only mention the perpetrator once (in the above excerpt), although there is one other mention of the Trump administration. Why, its akin to the end of Murder on the Orient Express, except if no one did it.
How difficult is it to admit that Trump got this one right? Or at least to report the facts absent a narrative to distract from it?
I have to give President Trump credit for working around both parties’ refusal to fix the asylum laws.
The GOP controlled both houses for the first two years and refused to secure the border or fix the laws.
We have to elect better Republicans.
I don’t fault Trump for taking the long road to get at least some of what’s needed done, even if its a convoluted way to go.
I’m just saying it would be better if he didn’t have to; if politics stopped at the border, so to speak. As it used to.
Throwing them out will send a good signal to the rest of them south of the border to not bother spending money on the long-wearing sneakers. Stay home.
Agreed, although to be fair, we didn’t have a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate. Of course if Mitch had stepped up to the plate and changed the rules, it wouldn’t have mattered.
Get rid of every one that is in our country illegally.
After that ex marine was chained to a bed (when Obama was) and
Obama visited Mexico and left him there, just because he wanted to bring an out dated rifle properly into their Country.
Yeah, I hope Trump rounds these Illegals up and puts them as far out to sea as possible!
DEPORT ALL ILLEGAS NOW!
Both parties want the border left open and the laws unenforced, it’s been the centerpiece of their bipartisan plan to fundamentally transform the country for 30 years.
They though they had US in a box, endlessly voting for Amnesty candidate R or Amnesty candidate D.
We MUST get rid of the Amnesty Senators, starting with Flimsey Grahamnesty, he is still working on the amnesty he’s been trying to pass since 2006.
A great start so let’s combine that with ICE raids to return even more to Mexico and where ever they can go outside this country.
FREE-UP OUR ROADS, PRISONS, HOSPITAL BEDS, CROWDED CLASSROOMS, CLOGGED COURTS, DMV's, HOUSING, ETC..: DEPORT ILLEGALS!
The law changes would have required 60 votes, the border funding could have been done under reconciliation with 51 votes.
Only problem is they did not have 51 votes because most of the GOP Senate are Bush League Republicans who have spent their career preventing the citizens from stopping the Bush Plan for North Mexico.
All illegals are criminals! Deportation is too soft a punishment. Break into someones home and you wont be treated in kind.
