Trump Administration Captures Nearly 1 Million Migrants in FY 2019, Up 88 Percent From Year Before

Trump is cracking down on illegal immigration.

Customs and Border Protection commissioner Mark Morgan said to reporters at the White House earlier today that nearly one million migrants were apprehended at the border during Fiscal Year 2019.

This number is 88 percent higher than the apprehensions that were conducted over the previous fiscal year. This comes despite a September that has marked the lowest total for apprehensions in the past year with 52,000 migrants being arrested.

“This is an unprecedented achievement,” Morgan said, noting that President Trump’s deal with Mexico has resulted in that country taking more responsibility in keeping the migrants from reaching the U.S. southern border.

The Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) have required asylum seekers to wait on the side of the Mexican border while handling their proceedings in the U.S. courts. This has stopped tens of thousands of migrants, who are known to miss court appearances once in the U.S., from flooding into the country.

“The majority of them know they’re economic migrants and they’re not going to qualify for asylum,” Morgan said. “Now that the message is getting out, that we are, through this administration’s efforts, we’re closing those loopholes.”

“Mexico’s continued support of MPP and enhanced border security efforts along their southern border, in the interior and along the U.S.-Mexico border is something really for the history books,” he added.

The total number of migrants apprehended during the fiscal year ending last week was 977,000. Morgan pointed to the numbers to show the legitimacy of the national emergency the border crisis has caused.

“These are numbers [that] no immigration system in the world is designed to handle,” Morgan said during the briefing.

The administration is also getting ready to implement a regulation that would declare the majority of migrants who travel to a third country before arriving in the U.S. to be ineligible for asylum. A recent Supreme Court ruling affirmed the constitutionality of this policy, and they are expected to put it into effect shortly.

President Trump also points to the wall being built on the U.S. southern border as a testament to the progress his administration has made in curbing illegal immigration:

President Donald Trump has been given the green light by the Supreme Court to use military funding to build the United States-Mexico border wall along the southern border.

In what President Trump describes as a “win” for both border security and the rule of law in the United States, the Supreme Court has sided against a lower court and with the administration in their decision to allow military funding to be used to build the famous border wall…

Still, four of the court’s liberal judges dissented against the majority’s decision, showing the importance of President Trump’s election. Without Supreme Court Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch, it is likely the border wall funding would remain locked behind congressional approval…

President Trump is celebrating the victory on Twitter, writing that “The United States Supreme Court overturns lower court injunction, allows Southern Border Wall to proceed.” The president added, “Big WIN for Border Security and the Rule of Law!”

With the border wall going up and the flow of third-world migrants being choked off, Trump is giving his supporters much to be excited about heading into next year’s crucial re-election campaign.

Greyhound Gives Amnesty to Illegal Immigrant Riders, Bans Immigration Checks on Their Buses

They have caved to the leftists.

Published

on

Greyhound has announced that they will not permit immigration checks on their buses any longer, effectively giving amnesty for illegals who are using their services to evade ICE and federal enforcement.

“Our primary concern is the safety of our customers and team members, and we are confident these changes will lead to an improved experience for all parties involved,” the company said. “We plan to begin the implementation of these changes immediately.”

Previously, Greyhound had allowed U.S. Customs and Border Protection to come aboard their buses and perform immigration checks. Far-left groups like the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) had criticized their policy, saying it harmed the constitutional rights of the individuals in the country illegally.

“We are pleased to see Greyhound clearly communicate that it does not consent to racial profiling and harassment on its buses,” said Andrea Flores, who works as the deputy director of policy for the ACLU’s Equality Division, to the AP. “By protecting its customers and employees, Greyhound is sending a message that it prioritizes the communities it serves.”

Liberal state attorney generals had threatened Greyhound with lawsuits if they kept allowing immigration enforcement on their buses. Far-left Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson is thrilled that his threats made the company capitulate.

“Today’s announcement from Greyhound confirms what should have been obvious to the company since I contacted them a year ago – it has both the power and the responsibility to stand up for its customers, who suffered for far too long from Greyhound’s indifference to CBP’s suspicion-less bus raids and harassment,” Ferguson said in his statement responding to the change in Greyhound’s policy.

President Trump had changed a policy from the Obama administration that relaxed enforcement of immigration law due to concerns over “racial profiling.” Under Obama, agents were forced to stay away from train and bus stations, which are common hubs for illegals, unless they found “actionable intelligence” about an alien, and their actions had to be directly approved from Border Patrol headquarters in Washington, D.C.

Trump gave immigration officers more discretion to enforce the law in order to remedy the national emergency that has resulted from the border being flooded by waves of third-world migrants.

“The U.S. Border Patrol conducts regular outreach with transportation companies to foster good working relationships,” the Border Patrol said in a statement earlier this month.

Left-wing groups will stop at nothing to replace Americans with third-world foreigners who will vote Democrat and usher in a new era of socialism. It may be time for these subversive, anti-American entities to lose their tax-exempt status, or be ejected from the country, like Hungary Prime Minister Viktor Orban did with the Soros network in his nation.
