NYT forced to admit Trump's immigration policies are working

Thanks to President Trump, foreigners are hesitant to break U.S. laws and come here as illegal aliens, the New York Times was forced to admit today.

Hallelujah.



The United States has some of the most relaxed immigration laws in the world.

We are less strict than Canada -- and Mexico.

What is our thanks?

Eleven million illegal aliens -- many if not most living on our welfare system.

The capitalist United States is the welfare department of the socialist Mexican government -- just as our capitalist health system is the back-up system for Canada's single-payer health system.

President Trump is changing the former. Even before he laid the first brick in the wall, people finally are afraid to break our laws.

From the New York Times:
While some of Mr. Trump’s most ambitious plans to tighten the border are still a long way off, particularly his campaign pledge to build a massive wall, his hard-line approach to immigration already seems to have led to sharp declines in the flow of migrants from Central America bound for the United States.
From February through May, the number of undocumented immigrants stopped or caught along the southwest border of the United States fell 60 percent from the same period last year, according to United States Customs and Border Protection — evidence that far fewer migrants are heading north, officials on both sides of the border say.
In other words, Mexicans and Central Americans finally respect our laws -- and our border.

Human traffickers are hardest hit.
Migrant smugglers in Honduras say their business has dried up since Mr. Trump took office. Fewer buses have been leaving the northern Honduran city of San Pedro Sula bound for the border with Guatemala, the usual route for Honduran migrants heading overland to the United States. In hotels and shelters along the migrant trail, once-occupied beds go empty night after night.
Marcos, a migrant smuggler based near San Pedro Sula, said that last year he had taken one or two groups each month from Honduras to the United States border. Since Mr. Trump’s inauguration, however, he has had only one client. He blames Mr. Trump.
“People think he’s going to kick everyone out of the country,” Marcos said, asking that his full name not be published because of the illegal nature of his work. “Almost nobody’s going.”
That is the whole idea.
Mr. Trump is also proposing to cut American assistance for the sorts of economic and social development programs that seek to alleviate the poverty and violence that have compelled so many people to flee their homes.
The president’s proposed budget for the 2018 fiscal year would slash economic assistance to Central America by 42 percent from 2016 levels, according to an analysis by the Washington Office on Latin America, a research group.
“The effect on judicial reform, job creation and violence prevention efforts would be severe,” the organization said.
That money could be spent beefing up the number of our deportation judges. The backlog is measured in years.

If illegal aliens are so important to an economy, why are they not building the economy in their homeland?

By the way, we have the largest legal immigrant population in the world.

  1. Omg,
    Central Americans might have to hire lawyers instead of human smugglers.
    The horror.

  2. It's time to put the financial and diplomatic squeeze on Central American governments that refuse to deal with the human smuggling problems that start in their countries. Cut them off from access to trade and the international banking system until it hurts them more to ignore us than to clamp down on the smugglers. Start by reducing the number of visas to uncooperative countries to zero. Disallow any investments by US firms in their countries. Body-slam them so hard they squeal in pain.

  3. Orrrrrrrrrrrrrrr, we could change our immigration laws to be as tough as Mexico's. Wouldn't that get our media in a mega-MAGA-snit?

  4. "By the way, we have the largest legal immigrant population in the world."

    Germany will surely pass us within the next 10 years.

  5. When will the NYT and other lefties acknowledge that we are not a nation of immigrants, but rather a nation of laws? Sad.

    Happy 4th!!
