ILLEGAL BORDER CROSSINGS PLUMMET—THIS IS ANSWERED PRAYER

Lord, we praise you for a President that keeps his promises. Continue to guide him and use him for Your glory.

Illegal immigration across the southwestern border is down so much that the Department of Homeland Security is deporting more people each month than it captures coming across, officials announced Thursday, meaning they are now able to eat into the backlog of cases that built up during last year’s surge.

Over the past five months, 14,000 more people were removed or returned across the Mexican border than arrived, including 1,170 in February.

Acting Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark A. Morgan said the number of illegal crossings ticked up slightly in February but was still far below the heights of last year’s wave.

He said the nature of the flow looks dramatically different now. Last year, smugglers were recruiting Central American families. Now they are looking at single adult Mexicans, Ecuadorians and Brazilian families.

But he said CBP is in better shape to deal with the situation, thanks to policies put into place and deals struck with Mexico and Central American countries over the past year, which give the government the chance to do something beyond releasing illegal immigrants into U.S. communities.

“We’ve got the tools in place now where we have the capacity to remove more people than we’re actually apprehending,” Mr. Morgan told reporters before announcing the February numbers.

After eight months of declines, the number of people apprehended by Border Patrol agents or encountered by officers at ports of entry ticked up from about 36,650 in January to about 37,100 in February.

Mr. Morgan said President Trump deserves credit for pushing the changes that allowed the U.S. government to get a handle on the situation. The administration suspended aid payments to key Central American countries until they agreed to do more to keep their people at home and to try to stop migrants from other nations from using their territory as a crossing point.

Mr. Trump personally threatened to slap tariffs on Mexico, which brought Mexican officials running to Washington to cut a deal. They agreed to expand their own immigration enforcement efforts and to accommodate people from Central America who crossed Mexican territory en route to the U.S., whom the U.S. then pushed back across the border to wait for their immigration court dates.

That U.S. policy, officially known as the Migrant Protection Protocols but more commonly called “Remain in Mexico,” has been a critical part of cutting the flow of Central Americans.

Immigrant rights activists call the Migrant Protection Protocols an abuse of human rights. They say the policy forces asylum-seekers to suffer dangerous conditions in Mexico and point to reports that have documented kidnappings and other violence perpetrated on migrants.

Homeland Security says those are generally cases in which the migrants, after being returned to Mexico, deal with smuggling cartels again for another attempt to jump the border.

  1. Beautiful prayer points Laura!!! My in-laws also entered this country legally and have worked every day since. They were never given free cell phones, etc…. But the area I live in has been over run by illegals who get hundreds of dollars in free food every WEEK. They get so much free food that they take the food to the flea market and sell it. It absolutely sickens me to go to pharmacies and watch as elderly citizens have to walk away from the pharmacy empty handed (because they cannot afford their medicine) but the illegals get all their meds for free. The illegals are getting free medicine and free food but they have the latest iPhone and they are able to afford fake fingernails, tattoos, name brand clothing, cigarettes, alcohol, and expensive purses, etc…. And, the crime in our area has grown exponentially. There is feces smeared on the walls in public bathrooms because that is how they use the bathroom. Our hospital cannot treat all the diseases the illegals have brought in because they are bringing in diseases the hospital staff have never seen. Over the last few years, many medical staff have quit working for our hospital. We even had 20 physicians walk away from the hospital completely. Our once safe town is a nasty, crime infested, disease infested area that is very antagonist toward American born citizens. The illegals drive around in trucks with their country’s flags flying on them. They refuse to learn English or even try to assimilate. It is just so sad to watch what the illegals have done to our area. I applaud the efforts of people who come to this country legally. And I want people who are fleeing war-torn countries to be able to live in safety. But, what has been allowed to happen in our area since 2006 should never have been allowed.

  2. Thank you Lord for strong moves made by President Trump that are now making a difference to the border crisis.

    Thank you also for the article some weeks ago showing by your word how right it is to defend our borders.

    As a transplant from the UK and having gone through the legal system to become a citizen and not taking any monies out of this country I feel strongly about immigration and the misuse that has come from it.

    I pray for those who are genuinely fleeing for their lives that they will be the ones who will find the refuge they seek, whether in the US or elsewhere.

    I pray that parents in other countries will not allow their children to be used by others in attempts to gain access to the US.

    I pray for ICE that they will now be able to do their jobs swiftly, yet with compassion on those who do enter the country.

    I pray for wisdom for President Trump that will bring more solutions than problems and I pray for the completion of the border walls.
