When Donald Trump took office and even years prior to taking office he promised the nation one thing. That promise was to tighten up on homeland security. Trump has had several proposals and ideas on how to make this a reality and not only talk.
Ever since Trump made the statement that he was going to run for the position of the 45th president of the United States of America, he has be strong and unpersuadable on tightening the country’s borders. This includes immigration policies, business policies, and trading policies. Overall playing huge aspects on the social and economic perspectives of this country.
Trumps demands and ideas of innovation of the policies have some Americans very anxious and very upset. Alike all things that occur in politics, not everyone in the end is or will be happy.
Since Donald Trump has taken office the number of people illegally crossing the U.S. borders has dropped 40% Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly said Wednesday. U.S. Customs and Border Patrol reported that the number of illegal border crossings have dropped from 31,578 to 18,762 persons since Trump took office in January.
These new numbers appear as very welcoming news for Donald Trump who spent the past couple of years campaigning on behalf of the illegal immigration crackdown.
During Trumps first few days in office he had signed an executive order increasing border security as well as authorizing the construction plan for his so called promised border wall along the United States southern border.
Kelly says “The early results show that enforcement matters, deterrence matters, and that comprehensive immigration enforcement can make an impact.” Several things have changed since Donald Trump took office. People can argue both sides of whether it’s good or bad change. All we can say is that Mr. Trump is keeping his promises.
