Illegal Border Crossings Surge To 12 Year High

Donald Trump had one job.

More than anything else, he was elected to build the wall and stem the flow of illegal aliens into the United States. In FY 2019, more illegal aliens crossed the border than in any year of the Obama presidency. Those caravans kept coming long after the 2018 midterms were over.

Washington Examiner:

“Border Patrol agents working along the United States-Mexico border took into custody approximately 851,000 people in the U.S. government’s fiscal 2019, marking the highest number of arrests since 2007, according to federal data exclusively obtained by the Washington Examiner.

But the 40,000 people taken into custody in September is less than one-third of the 132,000 arrests made in May at the height of a surge of illegal immigrants. …”

It’s complicated though.

As we recently learned, it is not entirely his fault. The president originally wanted an electrified wall with a moat filled with alligators. He wanted to completely shut down the border and shoot illegal aliens in the legs. He was talked out of it and repeatedly blocked by his staff. They are doing the same thing with his foreign policy this morning.

The sheer number of illegal aliens crossing the border has declined since May. Kirstjen Nielsen was fired and DHS was purged. Blompf has had to deal with sabotage from within his own administration by conservatives, the federal courts, cuckservatives like Jeff Flake in Congress, the Democrats, Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala and the cartels.

There are lots of actors wrestling for control over our immigration policy. They have more power than the president of the United States. So what he has delivered as he heads into the 2020 election is an absolute mess. He has put Jared Kushner in charge of it too.

Am I happy with this result? NO …

Could it be worse? Absolutely …

Is it going to get better? Who knows at this point?

Is this where you want to be heading into the 2020 election? Probably not!

  1. This situation is being monitored CLOSELY and PERSONALLY by THE PRESIDENT!

    If another a couple of million people cross the southern border it’s going to be a BIG problem for Mexico folks, let me tell you. I talk to Mexicans everyday and they tell me Mexico is afraid of our GREAT, HANDSOME AND STRONG PRESIDENT.
