Fox News: Trump’s Rhetoric Causes Plunge in Illegal Border Crossings

‘It appears the president’s mere threat of enforcing the law and the media scare around it have turned back thousands’

EXCERPT:

BREAM: "U.S. now seeing a major drop in illegal border crossings out of Central America. It's all coming after three years where you remember the numbers were ballooning hitting roughly 80,000 people annually. William La Jeunesse is reporting live from the border in the city of Mission, Texas, to tell us more. Good morning." 
LA JEUNESSE: "Well Shannon, the question is why, right? The push factors haven’t changed, the violence and poverty in Central America. Border patrol isn’t doing anything different. We still have jobs here. Well experts say it appears the president’s mere threat of enforcing the law and the media scare around it have turned back thousands."
