Mark Morgan, the acting Commissioner of the Customs and Border Protection Agency (CBP) is laudatory over the Mexican government’s actions and partnership. Over the weekend, “a caravan of around 2,000 migrants” headed for the U.S. border were intercepted and turned around by “hundreds of national guardsmen and military police.”
Speaking to “Fox and Friends” this morning, Morgan said, “this is an example where Mexico has stepped up. I mean, they really are acting as true partners, seeing this as a regional crisis.” He also praised Mexico for “stepping up and doing exactly as they promised they would.”
In an impressive shift that can be numerically identified, Morgan said the border crisis was at its peak in May, when 40 to 50 “large groups” of migrants were attempting to cross the border each month. In September, Morgan said they only experienced one, and it was the direct result of Mexico’s actions towards cracking down on illegal immigration.
In addition, “Mexico has also agreed to hold thousands of asylum seekers who are waiting for the claims to be processed in the U.S. immigration court system. The program, known as Migrant Protection Protocols, has sent more than 51,000 asylum seekers back over the southern border” reported The Daily Caller.
Morgan concluded, “we are absolutely making progress. Again, the last 120 days, the last four months, we’ve reduced apprehensions by 65%.” Looks like Mexico’s “stepping up to the plate” and “acting as true partners” means President Trump is undeniably doing something right.
