[It seems Trump has done something diplomatic. But its a real bummer about the wall. There was something very cool about the concept. I'm sure he could have done something physical. The problem with diplomatic stuff is that it can be UNDONE. And that's the BAD NEWS. Then in a minute, the problem can be back. Jan]
The Trump Administration’s policy initiatives and international agreements with Mexico has led to a 56 percent decline in the nonwhite invasion of America since May this year, according to statistics released by the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency.

According to an official press release, the CBP’s enforcement actions for August 2019 saw the total number of people apprehended or found to be inadmissible was 64,006; a 22 percent decline from 82,055 in July and a 56 percent decline since the May peak of 144,255.
“Under President Trump’s leadership, we’ve been able to utilize a number of tools to help begin to mitigate, but not end, the national security and humanitarian crisis at the southern border,” said Acting CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan.
“The continued drop in enforcement actions is encouraging, but make no mistake, we’re still in a crisis and more must be done. Until Congress makes targeted changes to immigration laws, we will continue to see stark challenges.”
The CBP statement added that “recent domestic policy initiatives and international agreements to address legal and illegal immigration have contributed to the decline, including: agreements with Guatemala to address irregular migration, the Migrant Protection Protocols with Mexico, the final rule regarding non-Mexican asylum seekers at the southern border, interior enforcement operations, and international cooperation between the United States and Central American countries, particularly efforts to disrupt and dismantle alien smuggling organizations.”
