‘Zero Tolerance Policy’ Has Failed At The Border

The “zero tolerance policy” has not been much of a deterrent for illegal immigrants.

According to a new report, the number of families trying to sneak has been “unusually” hIgh, approximately 9,000 to 10,000 per month.

From washingtontimes.com

Illegal immigration across the southwest border appears to have dipped in July — but the number of families trying to sneak in is still stubbornly high, suggesting the administration’s zero-tolerance crackdown failed to dissuade smugglers or would-be migrants contemplating the journey.


U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced Wednesday that fewer than 40,000 unauthorized migrants were nabbed at the southwest border in July. That’s down 7 percent from June and down more than 20 percent compared to the spike in March, April and June that sent the Trump administration scrambling.

Big strides have also been made in cutting the number of children jumping the border unaccompanied by parents.

But parents trying to sneak in with their children — so-called “family units” — have remained unusually high, at between 9,000 and 10,000 per month, for the last four months.

Those are the migrants that President Trump and his top aides were trying to dissuade with the zero-tolerance prosecution policy, figuring that jailing the parents, resulting in them being separated from their children, would cause them to think twice about jumping the border. Officials told them instead to show up at official entry points and ask for asylum.

The numbers show just the opposite has happened, with three out of every four families trying to sneak between the ports of entry as traditional illegal immigrants — up 24 percent compared to before the zero tolerance policy took effect.
