Guess it helped that Mexico didnt pay for the wall, but became the wall.

Good, if it continues throughout the rest of the following months I'll give Trump credit.

I am hopeful that this is a trend due to immigration enforcement but it's also possible that it's just the heat. We will have to wait and see.

Good news. Now start going after the businesses hiring illegals. Fine them so hard that they have to close down. Prison terms for those who knowingly hire them.

Here is the issue though. If Trump loses or in four years we get a DNC president, then the numbers will skyrocket. Not just Mexicans or even South Americans mind you, but from everywhere.
