Report: Illegal Immigrant Border Crossings Declined By 93 Percent

A new report shows that the number of illegal immigrants caught crossing the border has dropped by a stunning 93 percent since December.

According to new numbers provided by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), around 16,000 people were apprehended illegally crossing the border in December, but only a little more than 1,100 were caught in March.

DHS is crediting President Donald Trump's harsher immigration policies as the primary cause of the significant slow-down in illegal crossings.
