The Department of Homeland Security announced on Tuesday that concerns about the Southwest border had declined in June after the Mexican government agreed earlier this month on pain of punitive US tariffs, drastically reducing their own efforts to enforce immigration regulations to reinforce.  US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data showed a 28-percent decline in fears over May, when 144,278 people were detained. Although some analysts blamed the "summer heat" for part of the new decline, the Trump administration stated in a statement that the decline in fears exceeded the year-ago decline by 11 percent over the same period.

The reduction in concern is due to a decline in all sections of the population, including unaccompanied minors, family members and single adult migrants from all parts of the Northern Triangle, in particular from Guatemala, "a statement by the DHS states
Decreasing Worrying numbers provide the DHS with greater opportunities to address capacity issues for detained persons and accelerate the entry of unaccompanied children. "Health and Human Services (HHS) Care said in the statement," Ush for the deal with Mexico had made the difference. Deputy Commissioner for US Customs and Border Patrol, Robert Perez said Tuesday to Fox News & # 39; s "America's Newsroom" that morale among law enforcement officials at the border has risen to EMERGENCY, " AS THE CIVIC OFFICE SAYS, THE DESPITE HAS COME SET "
" I think it's a combination of a few things, "Perez said. "I think it is certainly an unprecedented agreement we met with Mexico that the President reached about a month ago and we definitely see the steps that Mexico has taken and are encouraged to do so."
Some Republicans, however, were not pleaded with Mexico's efforts. Texan GOP MP Dan Crenshaw wrote on Twitter that it was "unacceptable" to see the fourth consecutive month of more than 100,000 border arrests, though he praised the decline in monthly fears as a "good" sign.
"The President It was right to demand more from Mexico," Crenshaw wrote. "Now some actions of the congress would be nice."
At the beginning of June, Mexico committed to deploy thousands of National Guard troops throughout Mexico, including at the northern and southern country borders, to step up action to reduce human trafficking operations and take additional steps to coordinate with the US government, to exchange information and "better protect and secure our common border," a statement by the State Department.
Trump had taken a tough position against Mexico shortly before this breakthrough. Tweet: "If we are unable to reach an agreement, Mexico will begin paying tariffs of 5% [sic] …!"
"On June 10, the United States will levy a 5% tariff [sic] on all goods that come from Mexico to our country, except for illegal immigrants coming to Mexico through our country, STOP," warned Trump May 30 "Customs will be gradually increased until the problem of illegal immigration is resolved, at which point customs tariffs will be canceled and details from the White House will follow."
Shortly after Trump's threat, but before the deal was reached, Mexico's Financial Intelligence Service announced it had frozen bank accounts of 26 people allegedly "involved in the smuggling of migrants and the organization of illegal caravans".
