Major Win Or Major Loss? Illegal Immigrants Face More Risks

The San Diego Union-Tribune is reporting that arrests of illegal immigrants have more than doubled in their city under President Trump’s immigration orders. New data shows that illegal immigrants in southern California are being arrested at roughly the same rate as before former President Obama relaxed the border policies.
In the period of February to May, almost 550 illegal immigrants were arrested in San Diego alone by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials. You can compare that to the number of illegal immigrants arrested in that same period last year and find that only 242 illegal immigrants were arrested. And in 2015 over those same months, only 267 were arrested.
This is what San Diego officials are saying, “We’re still focusing on criminals, but we’re not confined to them,” ICE’s Assistant Field Director in San Diego, Clinton Johnston told the San Diego Union-Tribune. “It’s the ability for us to enforce the law across the board.” The Field Director for Enforcement and Removal Operations in San Diego, Greg Archambeault, said, “All we’re trying to do is protect the community and remove the threats.”
In a recent study by the Pew Research Center, it was found that at least a million illegal immigrants live in southern California, and they have experienced a decade-long wave of immigration, violence, and foreign cartel issues. Based on 2014 estimates, there are at least 170,000 illegal immigrants living in the San Diego region and 120,000 living in the San Jose area. Most believe that the number is significantly higher than what has been reported because the numbers were taken by the Obama Administration before they decreased enforcement of immigration.
What are your thoughts about the numbers in this region doubling since Trump has been in office? Is this a win or a loss?
