In first 100 days, Trump has a lot to show on immigration

Despite setbacks on executive orders, and without any legislative accomplishment under its belt, statistics show that the Trump’s administration stance on immigration has already had some noticeable effects. Arrests and deportation of undocumented immigrants, including non-criminals, are at an all time high in the first 3 months of the Trump presidency. At the same time, the number of arrests at the border are at their lowest in 17 years, since the Customs and Border Patrol started recording statistics, which implies that the rhetoric of the new administration as well as extended powers granted to border agents, have, at least for the time being, acted as a deterrent for potential immigrants.
