The release of border crossers and illegal aliens into the United States interior by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has been cut by 85 percent in the four weeks since President Trump announced a migration deal with Mexico. Between July 2 and July 9, DHS released about 1,500 border crossers and illegal aliens into American communities, federal data confirms. This indicates that DHS is releasing about 188 border crossers and illegal aliens every day into the country. This is a significant drop in the catch and release of border crossers and illegal aliens in just four weeks, since Trump announced a deal with Mexico that mandates foreign nationals seeking asylum wait in Mexico while their claims are processed. Four weeks ago, for example, about 1,214 border crossers and illegal aliens were being released every day into the interior of the U.S. From June 4 to June 11, about 8,500 border crossers and illegal aliens were released into the country. The data indicates an 85 percent reduction of catch and release of border crossers and illegal aliens into the country since Trump announced the Mexico migration deal. As Breitbart News has chronicled, the release of illegal aliens into the country has steadily dropped over the last three weeks.
