I keep hearing that illegal border crossings are down 70+% under this new badministration

Is this true? How is that even measured?

1. I haven't tried to sneak into Ohio since December. Does that count?

2. The Trump administration is trying to take credit for a trend that started

long ago.

3. That number is closer to 40%. The Trump Gang's threat to break up migrant families

appears to have deterred border crossings in the short term.

They won the day with the threat of barbaric behavior.

5. Here's something!

http://www.cnn.com/2017/03/08/politics/border-crossings-huge-drop-trump-tough-talk/index.html


"It will still take months to figure out if the decrease in apprehensions is an indication of a lasting Trump effect on immigration patterns. Numbers tend to decrease seasonally in the winter and increase into the spring months."

8. That's a joke. What the RW calls illegal immigration mostly comes from people who came here

legally and overstayed their visa. All the border security in the world will not change that. Crossing from Mexico has been down for about 10 years due to Mexico's improving economy. So, Fuck Trumpy and his dumbass supporters.

10. So we need walls around all of our airports?



The Trump/Repub immigration plan is designed to engender fear, not stop the movement of people.

The long term anti-immigration plan is to turn the US into a 3rd world hell-hole nobody wants to come to. "Electing" Trump was a big move in that direction.

9. It's measured by the lying Trump administration. The SOB is a damn traitor and needs to be impeached

Nothing they, are anybody else associated with these traitors, say should be taken as the truth of any kind.

11. Because nobody wants to come to Trump's America?

Also, down from what? From three months ago? From three years ago? We know that illegal border crossings were down dramatically already under the Obama administration.
