Mexican government said on Tuesday that the number of migrants reaching Mexico’s border with the United States has fallen almost 40% since May. They hope to defuse tensions with Trump over a recent surge in migration.
I'm skeptical about that, that's a pretty steep percentage. I hope it's true though, and I hope Mexico does help with job creation in Central America. If more news keeps coming out like this, that will be a huge win for Trump.
But what percentage were they up this year? If the migrant caravans took it up 400% and it's gone down by 40%. That's still 360% higher than it should be.
Mexico didnt pay for the wall. They became the wall.
Illegal immigration tends to drop during the summer months not because of good governance necessarily, but rather how much of the US/Mexico border is a brutally hot and dangerous desert.
I think they mean invasion, not migration.
