From the article:
“U.S. border agents made more than 50,000 arrests in May for the third month in a row, the Department of Homeland Security said Wednesday, an indication that escalating enforcement tactics by the Trump administration — including separating migrant parents from their children — has not had an immediate deterrent effect.”
Um, yeah NO SHIT Sherlock, this is WHY the laws and rules are actually being enforced and followed; for too long the illegals have had relative little fear of being caught and actually detained/deported. No more!
“In a statement Wednesday, Homeland Security spokesman Tyler Houlton said the administration’s crackdown needs more time to work. “These numbers show that while the Trump administration is restoring the rule of law, it will take a sustained effort and continuous commitment of resources over many months to disrupt cartels, smugglers, and nefarious actors,” Houlton said.”
Know how to sustain the efforts and keep them baddies out? BUILD. THAT. WALL!
