It’s been a week of wins for President Donald J. Trump on securing America’s porous borders.
Earlier in the week, the Supreme Court upheld a Tump administration decree ending asylum protections for most migrants crossing the U.S./Mexico border, a system that has long been abused by illegal aliens who do not have legitimate asylum claims. The order that was backed by the nation’s highest court is described as “the president’s most forceful attempt yet to block asylum claims and slash the number of people seeking refuge in America.”
Further, data has emerged showing a vast decline in illegal aliens staying in the United States after crossing the border illegally. Trump has long been pushing for reform of our immigration court system, which foolishly allows illegal aliens to remain in the United States while they await an immigration hearing. Some hearings are dated years in the future, and many illegal border crossers never show up. They simply disappear into America, never to be heard from again.
Here’s a graph showing that decline from May to September:

Finally, there was some fantastic news out of the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) station Eagle Pass, Texas.
According to a CBP press release, the law enforcement entity arrested a convicted child sex offender attempting to re-cross the border illegally, and a confirmed MS-13 gang member – the violent Salvadoran group known for committing brutal crimes in the United States and Central America.
“Agents apprehended Jesus Contreras-Covarrubias, 55, a citizen of Mexico, after he entered the United States illegally. During processing, records checks revealed that he was convicted in 1992 of felony sexual abuse, in Polk County, Oregon,” the release said. “Agents also apprehended a previously deported confirmed MS-13 gang member, a national of El Salvador, shortly after he entered the United States illegally.”
