BUSTED: Border Patrol Ended October by Arresting 55 Gang Members

Such arrests demonstrate how urgent tackling the matter of border security reform is.
According to a previous BLP report, border apprehensions have actually fallen since the 1990s.
In 1998, U.S. Customs and Border Protection apprehended 1,516,680 immigrants, while in 2018, 398,579 were apprehended.
This is the product of a political class that no longer cares about defending the U.S.’s national sovereignty.
The election of Donald Trump has brought immigration at the forefront of political discussion.
However, establishment Republicans under the congressional leadership of Paul Ryan in the first two years of Trump’s presidency and a corrupt immigration bureaucracy have stymied immigration reform so far.
Further, a divided Congress ensures that Democrats will roadblock any meaningful immigration overhauls in the near future.
A strong Republican performance in 2020 is ultimately needed for President Trump’s nationalist border agenda to be implemented.
