U.S. Border Patrol says that a whole lot fewer illegals are crossing our southern border these days; down by 60% from a couple of months ago. For one thing, Mexico's clamped down - they're arresting and deporting a lot more of them as they've recently established a dozen or so interior checkpoints, stopping buses and vans and checking identification. Another aspect of relevance: prolonged drought across the Southwest (particularly in California) has killed water supplies; farms are drilling deeper and literally sucking the water out of private and municipal wells, and entire towns have dried up.
But in the past couple of months, Mexico's arrested and deported thousands of Central Americans before they ever reach our southern border. They've also stopped the illegals from riding atop the freight trains heading north, and many have given up on trying to get here.
Sure, Barry and his buddies will try to claim credit, but the slowdown is due to the Mexican clampdown and the Southwestern drought.
