Illegal Border Crossings are Down 50%

Since the media and academia are not that interested in crimes committed by illegal aliens, it is hard to get news out of either one about what is actually happening on our southern border. Fortunately, some people with hard information are interested.

“I was just out with the border patrol, by air and by gunboat on the Rio,” U. S. Senator Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). “They tell me that since Inauguration Day, illegal crossings across the Rio Valley are down 50 percent.”

In a free-flowing discussion with radio talk show host Mark Levin, the senator also shared insights on his colleagues. “Right now, the Democrats are more afraid of their base than they are of all other voters,” Sen Cruz observed. “They think they lost the election because Hillary Clinton was too moderate.”

Yet and still, they might be rueing the day that Harry Reid changed the rules of confirmation down to a simple majority. “Thanks to Harry Reid, we now have the most conservative cabinet in decades,” Senator Cruz said.

Nonetheless, he remains concerned about recent federal judicial decisions, in the 4th and 9th circuits, on gun control and immigration. “I’ve read both of these,” he said. “In neither one is there any reference to the controlling federal law.”
