(CNN) — Border Patrol arrests on the US-Mexico border continued to drop in September, marking a steady decline since the high earlier this spring when Trump administration officials struggled to stem the flow of migrants attempting to enter the US.
There were nearly 40,000 arrests on the southern border in September, which was the lowest month this fiscal year, according to a source familiar with the data. For comparison, there were nearly 133,000 apprehensions in May.
The article goes on to state the following:
Apprehensions along the southern border were higher in fiscal year 2019 than in any fiscal year since 2007, with slightly more than 850,000 arrests, according to Border Patrol data.
President Donald J. Trump spoke about the decline during a ceremony for the signing of the U.S.-Japan Trade and U.S.-Japan Digital Trade Agreements, thanking Mexico and other countries for their efforts to help stem the flow of immigrants. He also took the opportunity to jab at Democrats, saying the decline was due to establishing policies with other nations without the assistance from the “do-nothinDemocratsts”.
