That figure is down under Trump. But think of how many evaded being caught. The Wall is proper as illegals attempt entry from many different countries, not just from Central America.
The Wall will pay for it's self over a lengthy period of time. Pay for itself in many different ways, including less time spent arresting and jailing so many people..Where Mexico fits in paying for it is unclear. but there is no doubt that something will be worked out as Trump is a doer, not just a mouth though he has a pretty good one, too.
The "bleeding hearts" are going to lose more battles than they attempt to win. So glad. I;m sick of them.
