In a DHS report released on Tuesday, . Customs and Border Protection officials announced that only 11,000 individuals were apprehended along the southwest border in April. This decrease in apprehensions is likely not a fluke: Indeed, every month that Trump has been in the Oval Office, the number of apprehensions along the southwest border has declined. In February, Trump’s first full month in office, there were 18,000 apprehensions; one month later, there were 12,000. These numbers sit in stark contrast to those in November and December (when President Obama was still in office but Trump’s presidential transition was underway), which saw 47,000 and 43,000 apprehensions, respectively.
