NYT: What’s The Mystery Behind The Sharp Drop Of Arrivals On The Southern Border?

Excerpt:

Well, here’s a clever whodunit from the Paper of Record. Whatever might be the cause of a sudden drop in border crossings? What could it possibly be?

Here’s the NYT headline:

A Drastic Drop in Migrant Arrivals on the Border: What’s Happening?

And here’s the lead:

In the sleeping quarters, green cots that were once occupied by hundreds of parents and children on a single night were stacked against the wall. For dinner on Tuesday, just two tables were set for the handful of families staying at the large shelter near the California border that takes in migrant families arriving from Mexico.

At its peak, the facility run by Jewish Family Service of San Diego held more than 300 migrants dropped off by United States immigration authorities. Some days this spring were so busy that new arrivals had to be sent to overflow sites.

Now, the shelter is almost eerily empty. The number of people arriving there has plunged in recent weeks amid a precipitous decline in arrivals along the southern border, where the Department of Homeland Security said that apprehensions dropped 28 percent in June.

Customs and Border Protection authorities encountered 104,344 people crossing from Mexico last month, compared with 144,278 in May, which had marked a 13-year monthly high. At the nonprofit shelter here in San Diego, the effects have been dramatic. On Friday of last week, not a single migrant arrived at the facility, the first time this had occurred since it opened in October.

So … what’s happening? For my money, it’s either one of two answers. The betting fave has to be Beto O’Rourke in the parlor with the “white supremacy” mallet. If not that, maybe Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ tantrum at Border Patrol facility scared them off.

To get the real answer, readers need to scroll down eight more paragraphs before the big reveal:

“The United States policy to return people to Mexico and the pressure on Mexico to stop the migration are having a big impact,” said Daniel Bribiescas, an immigration lawyer in Tijuana.

In other words, Donald Trump’s get-tough policies have had their desired impact. No wonder the Gray Lady waited until the twelfth paragraph to mention it.
