Trump Hard Nut Strategy Brings Down Migrant Numbers

The American dream still allures many more. The fact is proven as the US Border Patrol department shared statistics of December where they arrest more than 30,000 people trying to enter America illegally. Taking credit for having done a lot to control the influx of immigrants, Trump has been boasting as to how this is the seventh consecutive month where his administration has been able to get the figures down.

Sadly, those being detained and arrested in December comprised about 8,600 migrant families and 3,250 unaccompanied children. While seasons and temperatures are a big factor in this cross border movement, Trump administration is taking the credit for its rules to curb immigration and curtail migrant ability to apply for asylum.

Indeed, Trump’s hard nut strategy is going to be appealing to the vote bank states that have trouble with the huge migrant population.

Additionally, Trump had included another clause in immigrants seeking asylum status. The Trump administration had adopted a policy that barred people from qualifying to stay in the U.S. if they passed through another country without first asking for asylum in those nations.

This alteration actually sieves out many miscreants looking at entering America. It willfully disqualifies most applicants from countries other than Mexico. The Supreme Court has allowed the administration to implement the change amid a separate legal challenge.

From October through December 2019, roughly 3,500 Mexicans traveling as families were arrested by border agents. Most of them were claiming asylum. This figure has shrunk if one is to compare it with statistical findings of 6,400 during the entire previous fiscal year (ending Sept. 30).

Most of these families have been released into the U.S. because they are still eligible to apply for asylum and can’t be sent to Mexico to await their hearing. Those awaiting asylum have cases pending in immigration courts and have been staying in despicable conditions in the US for years.
