Border apprehensions hit lowest level since March, USCIS credits Trump


BRIAN: PROGRESS AT THE BORDER AS APPREHENSIONS DROP FOR THE SECOND STRAIGHT MONTH. AINSLEY: CUSTOMS AND BORDER PROTECTION IN JULY THEY ENCOUNTERED 82,000 PEOPLE ALONG THE U.S. MEXICO BORDER. THAT’S A DROP FROM 21% FROM THE MONTH BEFORE. THE OFFICIALS ARE CREDITING MEXICO FOR HELPING WITH THE CRACKDOWN ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. PETE: JOINING US NOW ACTING DIRECTOR OF CITIZENSHIP AND IMMIGRATION SERVICES KEN CUCCINELLI. KEN, THANKS FOR BEING HERE THIS MORNING. APPRECIATE YOUR TIME.>>MY PLEASURE. PETE: PUT THOSE NUMBERS IN CONTEXT FOR US. THEY STILL SEEM HIGH FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE. WHAT DO YOU GIVE CREDIT TO THE DROP FOR?>>WELL, FIRST OF ALL, THIS DROP ASK A RESULT OF PRESIDENT TRUMP KEEPING HIS PROMISES ON IMMIGRATION UNFORTUNATELY HE HASN’T GOTTEN HELP FROM CONGRESS IN DOING THAT AS WE HAVE BEEN REQUESTING FOR SOME TIME NOW. HE CONTINUES TO USE EVERY TOOL IN THE TOOLBOX AND YOU MENTION MEXICO. THIS PRESIDENT HAS DEALT WITH MEXICO IN A WAY COMPLETELY DIFFERENT FROM ANY OF HIS PREDECESSORS REPUBLICAN OR DEMOCRAT. AND HE HAS SUCCEEDED. WE ARE GETTING COOPERATION FROM MEXICO THAT WE HAVE NOT GOTTEN BEFORE. THEY ARE PATROLLING THEIR OWN SOUTHERN BORDER MORE VIGOROUSLY THAN BEFORE. WE ALSO HAVE THE REMAIN IN MEXICO PROGRAM WHERE TENS OF THOUSANDS YOU HAVE PEOPLE WHO HAVE COME ACROSS OUR BORDER ILLEGALLY HAVE HAD TO WAIT IN MEXICO FOR THEIR ASYLUM HEARINGS SO THEY DON’T GET RELEASED INTO THE INTERIOR OF THIS COUNTRY. SO PRESIDENT TRUMP’S DIFFERENT PATH OF DEALING WITH THIS IS SUCCEEDING. AND WE ALSO HOPE THAT WITH THE FIRST STEPS IN THE GUATEMALA COOPERATION AGREEMENT, MOVING THAT FORWARD AGAIN BECAUSE THE PRESIDENT HAS DEALT WITH THE NORTHERN TRIANGLE COUNTRIES DIFFERENTLY THAT THAT OFFERS MORE OPPORTUNITY TO KEEP REDUCING THESE NUMBERS. BRIAN: ALL RIGHT. SO THE NUMBERS ARE GOING DOWN BUT THEY ARE STILL EXTRAORDINARILY HIGH. BUT DO YOU NOTICE THE DEMOCRATIC DELEGATION WAS IN GUATEMALA YESTERDAY WHAT DO YOU HOPE THEY SEE OR HEAR? ARE YOU ENCOURAGED OR DISCOURAGED THAT THEY ARE THERE.>>I’M ALWAYS ENCOURAGED WHEN I SEE ATTEMPTS TO FIND FACTS AND TRUTH IN THIS DEBATE. AS YOU ALL KNOW AND HAVE YOU TALKED ABOUT IT ON YOUR SHOW, A LOT OF RHETORIC FLIES AROUND. BUT THERE ARE SOME BASIC FACTS THAT ARE HARD TO ESCAPE. AND YOU MENTIONED JUST WHILE THIS LAST MONTH’S NUMBERS ARE AN IMPROVEMENT, THEY ARE STILL CRISIS LEVEL. 82,000 PEOPLE COMING ACROSS THAT SOUTHERN BORDER EXCEEDS ANY MONTH FOR YEARS EXCEPT FOR THE LAST FOUR MONTHS. AND SO WE STILL HAVE A LOT OF WORK TO DO. THINGS WE HAVE BEEN ASKING CONGRESS TO DO, INCLUDING THE CONGRESSMAN DOWN THERE IN THE NORTHERN TRIANGLE COUNTRIES, INCLUDING THE SPEAKER HERSELF. AND THEY HAVE TAKEN ZERO ACTION ON THIS STUFF. NOTHING. AND WE AREN’T TRULY GOING TO GET OUR ARMS AROUND THIS PROBLEM FOR THE LONG TERM UNTIL CONGRESS CLOSES SOME OF THOSE ASYLUM LOOPHOLES THAT WE HAVE BEEN ALL BUT BEGGING THEM TO DO. AINSLEY: KEN, WHAT ABOUT THIS NASHVILLE MAYOR. HIS NAME IS DAVID BRILEY. AND HE WAS BLASTING THE PRESIDENT FOR IMMIGRATION RAIDS IN HIS AREA. HE RELEASED A VIDEO ONLINE SPANISH LANGUAGE VIDEO HOW TO AVOID ICE. TELLING THEM NOT TO OPEN THE DOORS UNLESS AN AGENT HAS AN ORDER SIGNED BY A JUDGE. DON’T SIGN ANY PAPERS BEFORE SPEAKING TO A LAWYER, AND THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO REMAIN SILENT?>>WELL, WHEN WE HAVE GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS AIDING AND ABETTING PEOPLE IN VIOLATING OUR LAWS WE HAVE FALLEN TO A PRETTY BAD PLACE. IT ISN’T JUST THIS MAYOR. WE HAVE SEEN IT IN LOS ANGELES, IN ONE OF THE BIGGEST CITIES OF THE COUNTRY WE HAVE SEEN THIS SAME SORT OF BEHAVIOR. THE REALITY IS AND A LOT OF AMERICANS DON’T KNOW THIS OVER A MILLION PEOPLE HERE ILLEGALLY HAVE GONE ALL OVER THE DUE PROCESS PIPELINE. BELIEVE ME, WE PROVIDE A LOT OF DUE PROCESS FOR FOLKS AND STILL HAVE FEDERAL ORDERS FOR THEIR REMOVAL, AND THEY REFUSE TO OBEY THEM. SO, IF YOU ARE ICE, IF YOU ARE MATT AL BANS, THE ACTING DIRECTOR OF ICE, YOU HAVE ENORMOUS TASKS IN FRONT OF YOU JUST WITH PEOPLE ALREADY THROUGH THE COURT PROCESS, THE ADJUDICATION TO DETERMINE THEY SHOULDN’T BE HERE ANY LONGER. THERE IS A LOT OF PEOPLE WE NEED TO REMOVE. MAYOR’S LIKE THAT ONE IN TENNESSEE DON’T HELP. PETE: SPEAKING OF ENFORCING THE LAW AND REMOVAL, DOWN IN MISSISSIPPI THERE WAS A SERIES OF RAIDS ON POULTRY PROCESSING PLANTS. ULT MATILY 640 WORKERS DETAINED. WE JUST LEARNED THAT 300 OF WHICH WERE RELEASED. THERE HAS BEEN A LOT OF SPIN AND HYPERBOLE ABOUT THESE ACTIONS. TELL US WHAT THE CONTEXT IS AND WHY THEY HAPPEN.>>WELL, FIRST OF ALL, ICE HAS DRAMATICALLY INCREASED THEIR ENFORCEMENT ACTIONS OVER THE LAST YEAR. THIS YEAR OVER THE LAST YEAR. LITERALLY 2, 3, 4, FIVE TIMES. AND THEN SOME. AND WHAT YOU SAW IN MISSISSIPPI WAS AN OPERATION INVOLVING SEVEN LOCATIONS WITH THREE EMPLOYERS WHO ICE’S INVESTIGATIONS DEMONSTRATED WERE BREAKING THE LAW BY HIRING ILLEGAL ALIENS INSTEAD OF AMERICAN CITIZENS. AND MIND YOU, MISSISSIPPI IS A HIGHER UNEMPLOYMENT RATE THAN THE REST OF THE COUNTRY. THIS IS NOT A SITUATION WHERE THERE IS NO ONE ELSE AVAILABLE. WE ALSO HAVE THE H 2 PROGRAM VISA PROGRAM FOR LEGALLY PRESENT ALIENS TO PARTICIPATE IN EMPLOYMENT. THAT ISN’T WHAT WAS HAPPENING HERE. THAT’S WHY ICE WAS BUSTING THESE FOLKS. AND THEY HAVE LITERALLY WERE USING HUNDREDS OF ILLEGALS TO DO THEIR WORK, TO BEAT OTHER PEOPLE IN THEIR BUSINESS. SO THEY WERE CHEATING HERE. AND THEY ARE BEING HELD ACCOUNTABLE NOW THANKS TO ICE. BRIAN: ALL RIGHT, KEN,

    Border crossings dip every summer. It's pretty obvious why (why would you cross the desert in the middle of summer?). "Lowest level since March" is a meaningless achievement. I guess you guys are the ones handing out participation trophies now..

  • John Williamson says:

    Its a violation of criminal statute to knowingly hire an undocumented immigrant, its also a felony to conceal and harbor an undocumented immigrant on your premises. donald j trump was one of the largest employers of undocumented immigrants in America

  • Wall is the first line of defense in many countries, and even Pelosi (as well as others) has a wall on THEIR homes. BC it works. …….WINNING!!!! Trump 2020.

  • I live in Mississippi. I can tell you why they hire them. They pay them $40.00 a day to work. I was offered $50 because i am an American. I wouldn't work for $50 a day. They work 8 to 10 hour days, depending on inspections of the facility. That's what I was told when I was offered the job. They believe everyone from here needs the job bad enough, we will take it. If not the Hispanics will for $10 cheaper. We go hungry because we can't find jobs here, but tell the Democrats not to worry. The Hispanics are working.

  • Shoot those little bastards right off the top of the fence with rubber bullets or shotgun bean bags. Climbing will no longer be an issue

  • Illegal immigrations were far lower under Obama. When Trump said we were closing our borders it stoked fear and compelled people to rush in, fear is what stokes people into Whataboutism where they say but why about to every reply as it to distract from the discussion in progress. This is fascinating.

  • Voice Of Reality says:

    Hard to capture invaders when no on is available to man the defenses. Everyone is at Kamp Fun Land feeding and changing diapers. Hell, US Military is being detained on American Soil by Mexican Army. Do you not see the issues America? You deserve the best the Hebrews can import.

  • Once the wall is up and millions are deported I’ll support trump again.

    And no I don’t want LEGAL immigrants either

  • Wait a second! Those factories down in Mississippi are owned by who? Are they Republican /Trump supporters? Most businessmen are! But they were using immigrant labor instead of USA labor!! Dam these factory owners, they are Carpetbaggers!! Is the Republican Party still raping the South?? Shouldn't these factories hire USA workers. But not pay them a living wage to maintain their profit margin??!! USA workers wouldn't put up with that!! American labor is proud and patriotic! But …. perhaps we need a labor wage scale, like with weights and measures. Why are you Southern boys still voting for the Carpetbaggers????

  • So Nancy Pelosi I guess walls do work but now that stops the flow of drugs so you can't make any money off them like you did off of El Chapo

  • Sounds all good but remember that its the hottest months of the year.
    Just wait till the temperature drops. The illegal wave will increase again.

  • Oh Ken you lovable idiot, this had nothing at all to do with Trump.. and besides, it's the apprehensions that are down, not the crossings, but nice try.

  • It will not be acceptable to Americans until all border crossings are stopped completely otherwise quit wasting our time with your phony try to make you feel good stories we see right through you

  • Trump and Mexico. Not congress. How long before congress realizes no body is buying the story they got rich by saving story?

  • Hey Democrats… Guess what… Walls work assholes….😎…. now we just need to build them around Democratic districts !!!! …. some walls were made to keep assholes in and some walls were made to keep assholes out dot-dot-dot all walls were made for Democrats😎

  • Those numbers are still high but I bet if Trump wins the next election that will change…especially if Congress will stop sabotaging him and our country just to make Trump look bad.
    *Trump 2020*

  • Border wall helps deter the massive influx of illegal immigrants from illegally crossing our border, but Dem and liberTurbs are still living in denial.

  • Dark Technology Joe Ramirez says:

    Adding and abeding ?Knowledge of your rights? This is a international rite by treaty we signed .European signatures have no value. Look at the peace treaties broken with the different nations if the first settlers of the Amricas.

  • 82 000 every Month, that are 82 000 that get support for Healthcare, Food, Clothing and what have you, from OUR Tax Money every Month, that Money could be used for our own Homeless, People in Poverty, Infrastructure and so on…..
    i dont mind Folks coming here LEGALLY to make and get a better life, BUT sneaking in and then "demand" that we take care of you……just doesn't fly

  • DON'T TRUST THE MEXICAN PRESIDENT! HE IS A GLOBALIST'SOCIALIST'COMMUNIST! HIS TROOPS ARE WEAPONIZED BY THE UNITED NATIONS, READY TO INVADE WHEN GIVEN THE GLOBALIST ORDER! LOPEZ OBRADOR CANNOT BE TRUSTED1

  • If only the dems and mainstream media could hide the facts of this “manufactured crisis.” I can’t imagine why news organizations are referred to as “fake news”

  • Germericana youreallywanna? says:

    Aloud to comment here but never on videos about the joo who had an island such bull being spewed about it like trey gowdy lies…. " he would have never implicated anyone" lol! Their ALL satan worshipping pedophiles! Americans Wake up!!!!!!! Badges are to protect the Satanic elite baby killers!!!!!!! Ask God search your heart you know im telling the truth!!!!!!!

  • They have to leave their house at some point. So my note to ICE … just wait outside longer or drive up in a UPS truck and knock on the door with a package in your hand. They will answer it.

  • This is still an alarming amount of people, apparently some people have no idea how many 80,000 people is, thats nearly 3000 a day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Isn't 'aiding and abetting' illegal? If so, why aren't these politicians being prosecuted? Is this because of a multi-tiered justice system in this country?

  • look the problem is there's a difference between migration and criminals actual criminals who do harm now yes there should be a process and order but definitely not treat the immigrants like felon criminals all need a chance make it a little easier for them to migrate but on probation because we don't need anymore criminals here so for actual criminals get rid of them but as to "migrater's" yes they need to be processed properly now for the immigrants that been and have proof they been here and without a criminal background need a chance 1 they been here before this new law the new law Trump is trying to put out should be for actual and active criminals all… but then the ones that been here need a chance with no crazy criminal history and i don't mean no traffic ticket i mean 10 commandments type of crimes…

  • Excellent news but they still must post the number for I.C.E. on a billboard so the public can do their part in reporting these illegal alien criminals!

  • William Wallace says:

    Even at its "lowest" it's still too much. ZERO tolerance on the border!!! DEPORT DEPORT DEPORT RAPIDO! Before they make illegal families and whine about "getting split up" later. Dont let them get comfortable in the first place. Is our gubment stupido?

  • There are "apprehensions" because 45 created them. Things aren't any different now than before except we now have a Chicken Little, to yell the sky is falling. Made up stats, to a made up crises. Wouldn't surprise me any if Homeland and ICE aren't doing their job as well as they used to except "someone" wants the citizens to think they are. The Big Corporation tax cut had to hurt budgets throughout the government.

  • Joel Strickland says:

    I live in Georgia on Interstate I-85 at exit 129 Ga. Hgy. Their is a large Flea market Ice needs to bring a convoy of buses and they could load them up. Check out the poultry processing plants in Georgia. The housing construction you could sink a battle ship.

  • Kathleen Weber says:

    BufferRR Yard wide open! Illegal Aliens stroll in to the yard Border Patrol sits there waiting to Uber them to our neighborhoods!

  • yup we only apprehended 180,000 this month – but about another 200,000 just rolled right on by cause we don't have the manpower (oh sorry) wahmanpower.

  • Start busting them! Federal law is above all and holds the higher status ; it is the one thing that bonds the country together. Take these mayors and police chiefs and congresspeople to court.

  • LOL. 1st time in 200 years that Mexico has done anything to help USA. I wonder how much $$$ it's costing us for their cooperation.

  • aiding and abetting illegal aliens is a crime….so why aren't the mayors, police chiefs and governors committing that crimes charged, arrested and kicked out of office?? ENFORCE THE LAW

  • STILL WAY TO HIGH! END "CATCH & RELEASE", VISA LOTTERY & CHAIN MIGRATION! it's An Invasion! The Trogan Horse! The plan of the deep State demon worshipers & child sacrificers!

  • William Schwartz says:

    Make the border wall fully electrified with 100,000 volts dc so they can't try to climb over it let alone touch it without consequences

  • James Mckeraghan says:

    ARREST THE FCKING PEOPLE AIDING AND ABEDDING IS A FREAKING CRIME PUT THEM IN JAIL SPECIALLY WHEN THEY ADMIT TO IT ON MSM WHAT IS WRONG WITH ICE CLICK CLICK BOOM [KID ROCK]

  • James Mckeraghan says:

    [ ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS ] AIDING AND ABEDDING = [ ILLEGAL ILLEGAL MAYORS,SHERRIFFS,GOVERNERS ] ALL UNDER ARREST PERIOD THEY ARE NO DIFFERENT NO WHITE PRIVALEDGE . 5/O 5/O 5/0

  • TeenyStudio Flicks says:

    It does not matter how many years ago these illegal immigrants snuck across the border either, the law is the law.  If a US citizen breaks a law 5,6,7 etc years ago, when the law catches up to them they don't just say "That's alright, it was a long time ago and you've been good while you have been hiding out here".  They bring you up on criminal charges because YOU BROKE THE LAW! You can't just decide which US law should be ignored….

  • 把中共開除國際聯合國.因未屢行國際聯合國約定法案.為國際互流福址造澤國際之義務.處破壞了國際侵害人權.種種為害恐赫威脅.判賠或除意國際聯合國
    川普總統.眾團隊不會作錯誤策略.很棒.真話
    (美國全民應該相信)
    平心而論.無私偏

  • Conservative Joe says:

    Not NEARLY good enough! Liberal Mickey Mouse Club Fox News is pushing this is a good thing? 0 is a good thing…

  • The city I live in in Illinois is overrun with illegal aliens including gangs, and cartels…I was brutally beaten with brass knuckles and chains by nine illegal hipanics for kicking one of them out of my bar for starting trouble, and the police discouraged me from pressing charges…Needless to say nobody was ever charged or found…The fight occurred outside with no cameras filming any of it….

  • Somphoth Siratsamy says:

    America should just invade Mexico and start real socialism in Mexico. Doesn't matter how many Mexicans are in America, we Americans know better.
