Illegal Immigration Shrinks Under Trump!

The Trump Administration hasn’t even started a wall but already illegal immigration shrinks because fewer people try to sneak in.

Everyone should be happy when illegal immigration shrinks, right? People who morally object to deporting illegal immigrants should be especially happy. When illegal immigration shrinks that means the Department of Homeland Security will have less work to do in the future, enforcing immigration law.

But I suspect that won’t be the reaction on the Left.

The Washington Examiner reports, “Border Patrol union chief praises ‘miraculous’ drop in illegal immigration under Trump.

“As far as the Trump administration’s efforts on immigration, this is something they campaigned heavily on,” he said. “At six months, where we are on meeting those promises, we are seeing nothing short of miraculous. If you look at the rhetoric that President Trump has given, it has caused a number of illegal border crossings to go down. We have never seen such a drop that we currently have.”
