The recent apprehension numbers released from U.S. Customs and Border Protection show that President Trump’s tough border security policy is effective.

Acting Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection Mark Morgan reported, “During the month of August, CBP apprehended or deemed inadmissible a total of 64,006 people. For July, that number was 82,055. This represents a decline of approximately 22%. Moreover, the August number reflects a decline of 56% since the May peak, which was a staggering 144,255.”

Morgan released the numbers, but pointed out that while the tough border policy is working, there is still a crisis at the border.

Last month, DHS secretary Kevin McAleenan said there was a 43 percent decline in border crossings since May. DHS is working with Central American countries to protect migrants needing asylum as well as conducting an “aggressive effort against human smugglers,” which is a project that McAleenan says “could really change the game.”
