El Paso, Texas  Illegal crossings along the U.S.-Mexico border in May are down by more than 50% compared to the record highs reported in December, giving the Biden administration an unexpected reprieve during a time when migration has historically surged, according to internal government data obtained by CBS News.

During the first 21 days of May, U.S. Border Patrol agents recorded a daily average of approximately 3,700 apprehensions of migrants between official ports of entry. That represents a 54% decrease from the 8,000 daily average in December, when illegal entries soared to a quarter of a million, an all-time high.

May is also on track to see the third consecutive month-over-month drop in unlawful border crossings, the preliminary U.S. Department of Homeland Security statistics show. In March and April, illegal crossings along the southern border dropped to 137,000 and 129,000, respectively, according to public government data. If the trend continues, Border Patrol is on pace to record between 110,000 and 120,000 apprehensions in May.

While still elevated compared to pre-pandemic levels, the drop in migration this year has been unusual, bucking the trend in recent years of migrant crossings soaring in the spring. Senior U.S. officials have partially attributed the lower-than-expected levels of unlawful crossings to an aggressive crackdown on U.S.-bound migrants by the Mexican government.

Well, those Mexicans aren't as bad as many people often make them out to be. First they paid for the border wall-- and now they are cracking down on migrants wanting to enter the U.S.

Viva Mexico!  jrSmiley_28_smiley_image.gif

Biden never should have ended Trump's Stay in Mexico policy. 

Then Mexico would have been doing what they should have been this entire time; and millions of illegal immigrants wouldn't be in the US sucking down resources that are supposed to be used on poor US citizens and Vets.

So, Greg Abbott's policies to crackdown on illegal entry are working?  

Alejandro Mayorkas certainly hasn't made any attempt to deter illegal entry.  Increasing the ranks of welcoming border agents won't lessen the number of encounters.   And Mayorkas' program to fly immigrants into the country only cherry picks the more affluent.  Naturally Biden will take credit for a result that his plan didn't create.

The reporting confirms that Abbott was right and Biden was clueless.  But the unbiased liberal press will gaslight the country into thinking otherwise.

Please explain how Abbotts policies are working in Arizona, California, and New Mexico.

Do you think his recent pardoning of a white racist murderer might discourage non whites from entering the US regardless of the state they surrender to?

Silly me, the crossings dropped by half over 4 months ago and the cretin Abbott pardoned the cretin Daniel Perry yesterday.

Easy...he has shifted the illegal crossings from Texas to those states.

"Do you think his recent pardoning of a white racist murderer might discourage non whites from entering the US regardless of the state they surrender to?"

I think you meant the guy that defended himself from the BLM rioter

"the crossings dropped by half over 4 months ago "

Still far higher than most months before that.

"pardoned the cretin Daniel Perry yesterday."

Should have never been prosecuted.

Sorry, the crossing are down by half all across the border, thanks...

What riot, there was no riot, they were in a parade...

Should have never been prosecuted.

Sure, let a Muslim or a non white individual, write racist threats on Facebook or privately texting to friends,

Who seeks out a white parade, runs a red light to drive into the parade participants and then shoots from

inside his car at the first open carry white person he sees,  try to do what Daniel Perry did.

In Texas they wouldn't give him 25 years, they would give him the death penalty in about 5 minutes.

A jury of Daniel Perry's peers declared him guilty.  A Texas judge gave him 25 years.

None of them did that because they thought Abbott would pardon the guy asap.

They acted in good faith based on the evidence.

Like I said...still higher than many months before them.

"What riot, there was no riot, they were in a parade..."

Yes because every parade features someone blocking through traffic by holding a firearm in front of cars. Daniel Perry was afraid for his life and took appropriate action.

Pretty bigoted statement.

Even CNN never calls this a "parade".

Perry dropped a passenger off near the rally, which he did not know was taking place, Broden added.

Several people then began beating on Perry’s car and a man carrying an assault-style rifle approached the car and motioned with the rifle for Perry to lower his window, according to Broden.

“Foster, the individual with the assault rifle, began to raise the AK-47 toward Sgt. Perry. It was only then that Sgt. Perry, who carried a handgun in his car for his own protection, fired on Foster because he believed his life to be in jeopardy,” Broden has said.

"A jury of Daniel Perry's peers declared him guilty.  A Texas judge gave him 25 years."

Not surprising since this happened in far left Austin.

He spent over 4 years in jail until Abbott pardoned him. Good Americans applaud this decision.

We are an open carry state, don't understand that?  Best not to visit TX.

Pretty bigoted statement.

Nah, reality on the ground in TX and maybe Florida too considering the Forsten murder.

Who cares?

No link?  That's a violation.

Quoting the defense lawyer as if it was factual?  That's priceless.

Not surprising since this happened in far left Austin.

That's generally what "a jury of your peers" means.  Murder an Austin resident (an Air Force vet) in Austin

then you will be detained, arrested & tried in Austin. Simple justice.

Abbott, wasn't there, didn't attend the trial and was promising this before the trial.  He's specializing in incompetence in many different ways, but this takes the cake.

The jury came to their decision without ever seeing or hearing about the 76 page collection of racist, Islamophobic and white nationalist memes and messages Perry posted and texted over the last few years including specific comments about hunting down BLM protesters.

Then he does it and he claims self defense?  Sorry, not buying it.

I spend almost half the year in texas and I am tickled pink about this pardon. I wonder if abbott would pardon a non-supporter of trump if a trumpster got dropped for doing the same thing. I think I'm pretty good at provoking goober morons...
