    Illegal immigrant crossings fall 78% and once overcrowded cells are empty

    Illegal immigrant crossings fall 78% and once overcrowded cells are empty

    There are a lot of statistics Mark A. Morgan, acting U.S. Customs and Border Protection commissioner, uses to show how Trump policies have helped to cut illegal immigration into the United States.

    But there are two that he feels really make clear the victory his agency has had in the past year, and he highlighted them in a small meeting Tuesday.

    First is daily apprehensions, a number that hit 4,600 at the height of the latest crisis in May. That has now dropped to 1,300.

    What’s more, he said, the 21-daily average is below 1,000, a 78% cut. “That’s a dramatic reduction,” he said, in updating the numbers released last week.

    Then there are the numbers of illegal immigrants “in custody.” That was a horrific 20,000 in May for an agency that has just 4,000 beds.

    Now a quarter of those beds are unused.

    “We were having those conversations back then about how the system was overwhelmed, there was overcrowding. We’re just not experiencing that now,” Morgan said.

    “Currently, right now, what we’re seeing is our in-custody numbers right now are actually below 3,000, and it has been steady for the past few weeks,” he said.

    He added that some 731 Border Protection officers pulled off the border to handle the housing crisis last year have also been put back on the border. “They are all back,” he said.

    While he stressed that the crisis is far from over, especially as Mexican cartels turn to drugs to replace moving people across the border as their money source, he said that President Trump’s policies get the credit for the change.

    Winter. The river is too cold to swim.
    Too cold on the tops of trains.
    Lets see the statistics for the emergency kid-droppings in border hospitals.

    No. It's something else.

    One would hope that Mexico is doing more on their end both economically and in terms of enforcement but that's probably not it.

    Sadly.

    Maybe it's just taken this long for word of the "horrific" conditions to get back to the little villages in Central America.

    Either way, it's a good situation. The BP should be patrolling the border, not dealing with overcrowded detention centers.

    I'm pretty much across the water from Matamoros on this map.

    As I write it's 80° and sunny. Not even Floridians are wearing sweaters today, LM. Not many, anyway.

    Once again. Myself would like to see the statistics on how many illegals give birth to an anchor baby in an American hospital. Rising or falling numbers?

    "Anchor babies" are human beings. They're often given birth to long after the undocumented person has been there. It's not always a case of just crossing the border and bam. Baby.

    You want proof that they're human beings?
