Trump sent fewer Mexicans home from US in 2017 than Obama in 2016 | TheHill
"President Trump sent roughly a quarter fewer Mexicans back to their home country between January and December this year than former President Barack Obama did during the same period in 2016, according to Mexican government data.
Trump's administration sent about 152,000 Mexican nationals back to their home country, compared to roughly 205,000 in the first 11 months of 2016...."
Anti-Trump derangement nuts (many of whom are radical crackpot one world open borders socialists) are insanely interpreting the above data as Obama trumping Trump on border security - as statistically proving that Obama richly deserves the title "Deporter in Chief" with Trump lagging far behind; that Obama was tougher in cracking down on illegal immigration from Mexico than is Trump despite his 70 point plan for immigration enforcement, promises about wall building, attempt to defund sanctuary cities and pardoning of Sheriff Arpaio.
But the hard truth is Obama virtually destroyed President Bush's immigration enforcement program which Trump is quickly and vigorously restoring - with many new tools such as expedited removals that put added teeth in enforcing existing laws.
The number of border patrol arrests that soared exponentially during the failed sanctuary nation Obama years is now dramatically, precipitously dropping.
Obama's well deserved image as a weak border security/ law and order, pro-illegal alien, anti-cop president (wanting blanket amnesty and sanctuary cities) emboldened and fueled criminal border crossings. Whereas Trump's reverse image as a tough border security, law and order, anti-illegal alien, anti-amnesty, pro-cop president is discouraging criminal crossings.
This ICE report of data through early October shows that while removal of illegal Mexican aliens were down, as The Hill reports, administrative arrests of all illegal aliens were up 30% in fiscal year 2017. It concludes that the decrease in removal numbers overall compared to fiscal year 2016 (which Trump haters are hailing as a victory for Obama) was primarily due to about 17% fewer illegals captured at the border.
