While Crazy Uncle Joe and Fauxahontas are tanking and the Democrats move toward nominating a socialist for President there is more good news.  The new numbers are out and they are pretty amazing. Illegal crossings are down for eight months in a row.  In May 2019 illegal crossings were around 144,000 and in January 2020 they were down to around 37,000.  The pressure by the Trump administration on Mexico is working, the wall is working, the enforcement against businesses hiring illegals is working.  And speaking of the wall, the latest update is that 119 miles have been completed, 220 miles are under construction and 237 miles are in pre-construction.

Even more ironic is that in a round about way Mexico is indeed paying for the wall.  You see, every illegal costs American taxpayers around $8,000 per year.  Just since May 2019 they have stopped almost 700,000 illegals from entering the U.S. which saves us $5.6B each year!!  Over ten years that's $56B in savings which more than pays for the wall, CBP and ICE.

So thank you Mexico and thank you President Trump for your steely resolve in reducing illegal immigration!  And imagine how many lives were saved by the criminal illegals and drunk drivers that didn't make it into the country.
