Homeland Security officials said President Trump’s crackdown on illegal immigrants is having a positive impact.

Senior officials said suspected illegal immigration declined 43% in the first half of 2017, compared to the same period last year, CNBC reports. 

The comments came ahead of President Trump’s visit to Yuma, Ariz.

According to Homeland Security officials, ICE arrested about 91,000 people during the first seven months of the year.

“Going from 5 miles of fence to 60 miles of fence on the Yuma border made a huge difference,” a senior DHS official said in a conference call with media, speaking on condition of anonymity.

CNBC wrote:

Increased enforcement, including this year’s extension of the fence, resulted in an 83 percent drop in illegal border crossings near Yuma since 2007, the official said. Up to 800 immigrants illegally crossed the border in the area every day in 2005 and 2006, the official said.

The DHS officials said 126,472 apprehensions have been made in the first half of this year, a 46 percent increase from the first half of 2016.

Away from the border, removals in the interior of the country are up 32 percent this year from last year, the officials said.
