Zero Tolerance Border Policy WORKING
 
The media has been relentless in attacking President Trump's zero tolerance border policy. The goal was to deter potential illegal crossers and it seems to be doing just that.

According to Town Hall:

The Trump administration’s “zero-tolerance policy” toward illegal immigrant border crossers has resulted in a drop in apprehensions, according to the Department of Homeland Security.

"Following the implementation of the administration’s zero-tolerance policy, the June 2018 Southwest Border Migration numbers declined by 18 percent when compared to the previous month,” DHS press secretary Tyler Q. Houlton said in a statement. 

June’s numbers, in which 34,114 people were detained, were lower than both May (40,338) and April’s (38,243) figures.

“DHS will continue to enforce the rule of law and uphold our nation’s immigration laws as passed by Congress,” Houlton said. “As we have said before, the journey north is dangerous and puts individuals in the hands of smugglers and traffickers. We continue to call on Congress to address the crisis at the border by closing legal loopholes that drive illegal immigration.”


Border security is a major issue for Trump and his administration. He has faced incredible resistance from the left, who seem to want open borders. Despite all of the pushback, it looks like President Trump is seeing success in securing America's southern border.
