Border Security Is Getting Better Because Of Trump's Moves

How Trump Exceeded Predictions

 for Border Security

3 2 1  8
President Trump gave his weekly address Friday, and he talked about 
how he exeeded "even the most bullish predictions" on border security progress.

Here's the video and the transcript:

My Fellow Americans,

We're only 11 weeks in, but already my administration has achieved historic

progress for the American people – in fact, 93% of our domestic

manufacturers have expressed optimism in the future, a record.

The confidence we are seeing in our Nation is about jobs and opportunity –

but it's also about safety and security.

Security begins at the border – as a candidate, I pledged to take swift and

decisive action to secure the border, and that is exactly what I have done. 

We inherited a full-fledged border crisis – it was a disaster.  Yet, with quick

and bold steps, we have so far exceeded even the most bullish predictions

for the progress we could make in so short a period of time.  Last month, we

saw a 64% reduction in illegal immigration on our southern border.

At the same time, we are conducting enforcement actions across the country

to remove dangerous criminal aliens from our society – and they’ll be gone. 

In just the last few days our Nation's ICE officers have arrested 153 criminal

aliens in south Texas, 84 criminal aliens in the Pacific Northwest, and 31

criminal aliens in Long Island, New York – these arrests include aliens

convicted of robbery, burglary, aggravated assault, sexual assault against a

child, smuggling, drug dealing, and many more.

Much work needs to be done to reverse decades of harm caused by open

border policies from Washington – but, with time, dedication, and effort, we

will get the job done, and save countless lives in the process.

Providing security for the American People also means restoring America's

standing in the world.

From the very start of my Presidency, I have worked to strengthen our alliances

and improve our relationships all around the globe.

This week, I was honored to welcome the President of Egypt and the King of

Jordan to the White House. Now, I am hosting a summit with President Xi of

China at the Southern White House to address the many critical issues affecting

our two peoples.

In our dealings with other nations, our conversations have been candid,

open, and grounded in mutual respect.

I have been clear about advocating for the national interests of the United

States, something so important to me, and so important to our people – one

of the reasons, certainly, that I got elected. And I want to ensure that the

decisions we make truly serve the safety and security of our citizens.

In matters both economic and military, we understand that a strong America

is in the best interests of the world – that is why it is so important that as we

strengthen international partnerships, we ensure these partnerships deliver

real results for Americans and the American people.

Our decisions will be guided by our values and our goals – and we will

reject the path of inflexible ideology that too often leads to unintended


A future of peace, safety, and prosperity – that is our guiding light, and always

will be.

Together, we will bring about this future for the land we love, and for the

people who call it home.

We love our country, and we love the American people. Thank you.
