At the rate it’s going, borders crossings under Trump’s watch are expected to surpass every year of border crossings under former President George W. Bush, according to new projections.
Breitbart reported that more than 92,000 migrants and illegal aliens were caught at the southern border last month. This figure is more than seven times the number of migrant crossings that took place in March 2017.
In the fiscal year of 2019, so far, immigration officials have apprehended more than 385,000 illegal aliens and migrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border. Breitbart also found that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has continued to release more than 1,000 migrants into the interior of the U.S. every day.
Steven Kopits, a Princeton Policy researcher, estimates that illegal immigration in 2019 will skyrocket to more than 1.28 million border crossings and apprehensions. Put in perspective, these levels are three times as much as migration numbers in 2018. This rate of illegal immigration outpaces every year of border arrests under the Bush administration between 2001 and 2008.
Curiously, the only year in the past twenty years to record more than 1.28 million border crossings and apprehensions was 2000, during the final year of Bill Clinton’s second term.
Bush’s highest year was in 2001, when approximately 1.23 million apprehensions were carried out on the southern border.
For April, Kopits estimates that there will be more than 100,000 border apprehensions with border crossings increasing all the way up until June. In the single month of June, over 120,000 apprehensions could likely happen.
These trends concern significant segments of the American population, specifically members of the Republican Party.
BLP covered how immigration is the #1 issue for GOP voters for the upcoming 2020 elections.
Across the West, immigration become a major political issue.
BLP reported on Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini’s successful measures to curtail illegal immigration, which voters are poised to reward during the upcoming European elections.
U.S. voters are taking note and pressing their elected officials for reforms so that they can avoid a similar fate.
With a divided Congress, Trump can’t really pursue bold immigration reforms at the moment.
However, he has been able to secure $1 billion of funding from the Pentagon for his wall project.
The resignation of Kirstjen Nielsen from the Department Homeland Security has made immigration reform advocates happy, given her inability to contain mass migration.
Flashback: Ann Coulter Warns Steve Bannon about Donald Trump’s Hires During 2016
Coulter tells it like it is.
Earlier this week, former White House adviser Steve Bannon reached out to President Donald Trump, in an apparent move to reconcile with the president. Bannon was one of the more renowned advisors in the Trump administration who received a lot of attention for his unconventional views. The former White House adviser is likely looking for Trump to pardon him for several federal criminal charges that he is currently facing.
Bannon was one of the strongest contrarian voices on the right who questioned traditional conservative dogma on free trade and immigration. His rise to prominence represented a raw, populist anger that was building within the Republican Party base. Bannon ended up leaving the Trump administration after the infamous Charlottesville rally. This left a massive void for populist voices within the Trump brain trust, which was never adequately filled with populist figures.
Most of the strong populist voices during the Trump era came from the outside. Conservative commentator Ann Coulter has been one of the leading figures trying to steer populist discourse in America.Although a harsh critic, Coulter did her best to hold President Trump accountable and watch his every move, especially personnel decisions that did not align with his America first vision. To the average pro-Trump individual, Coulter’s criticism may come off as abrasive, but it was and still is necessary to have a viable nationalist movement.
As a reminder to her followers about how she knew that there were subversive elements in the Trump administration who wanted to gut the president’s America First agenda and pursue more traditional Republican policies, she tweeted about email correspondence she had with Bannon dating back to December 2, 2016. In light of the rapprochement between Bannon and Trump, Coulter called attention to how she warned the former White House adviser about some of the latter’s questionable staffing decisions during the early stages of his presidency.
Coulter tweeted, “No, actually, I knew Trump was betraying us pretty early on – and that it would cost him re-election. My December 2, 2016 email to Steve Bannon:”

In an email sent on December 2, 2016 with a subject line titled “ghost of christmas future”, Coulter warned then-White House adviser Bannon about some of Trump’s hiring decisions.
She first noted that “the fact that Trump is even CONSIDERING rep. Mccaul (rubio in the house) for homeland — and is NOT considering kobach— tells me we’re not getting any major deportations, no removal of refugees, no e-verify, no end to end anchor babies… and trump will be dead.
also, “mad dog” isn’t going to build a wall.”
She was referring to Texas Congressman Michael McCaul, a known mass migration booster and a potential nominee for the head of the Department of Homeland Security. United States Marine Corps General James Matthis would be Trump’s first Secretary of Defense, who ended up turning out to be a Deep State hack. On the other hand, Kris Kobach is a nationally recognized immigration hawk, who gained fame for implementing some of the stiffest voter ID standards in the nation during his time as Secretary of State.
The Trump administration was successful in implementing several administrative changes that limited immigration and also did not get involved in any nation-building engagements like previous administrations.
Nevertheless, Coulter’s incisive suggestions still have use for future Republican administrations. The new GOP should follow Coulter’s pro-migration restriction suggestions if it wants to not only remain politically relevant, but also protect the integrity of America’s political system.
