How Trump's Immigration Policies Ended the Mass Migration Crisis on Mexico's Southern Border
- Published on: 1/20/2020
- In late 2018, President Donald Trump set in motion a cocktail of diplomatic and illegal immigration-control policies designed to end what had quickly become an epic flood of hundreds of economic migrants from Central America that was crashing crashed the American southern border. Nearly a million successfully entered the United States.
It should now be openly declared, based on reporting among the migrants in Mexico and Guatemala, that President Trump can be credited with ending the mass illegal migration crisis of 2018-2019 on his volition and without the currently irascible, divided U.S. Congress. But the victory declaration comes with a caveat.
