DALLAS, TX(TIP): In the last two months, the Trump administration
 has mobilized the National Guard to all four Southern border states, 
implemented a “zero tolerance” policy mandating prosecutions for 
unauthorized crossings and begun systematically separating mothers from 
their children when they are caught crossing illegally.

None of that has stopped the migrants from coming.

The number of illegal crossings 
increased slightly in May, to nearly 52,000, according to figures 
released Wednesday by the Customs and Border Protection agency. That 
total includes 11,568 people who came through legal ports of entry, some
 of whom were asking for asylum or other humanitarian protections under 
U.S. law.

Tyler Houlton, press secretary for the 
Department of Homeland Security, painted a bleak picture about the 
situation at the border in an accompanying statement.

“These numbers show that while the Trump
 administration is restoring the rule of law, it will take a sustained 
effort and continuous commitment of resources over many months to 
disrupt cartels, smugglers, and nefarious actors,” Houlton wrote. He 
highlighted that border arrests had jumped 160 percent over May of last 

The truth is those numbers remain low by
 historical standards. Border Patrol arrests stand at roughly 252,000 so
 far for the fiscal year, which began in October. That would put them on
 track to exceed last year’s exceptionally low number of 304,000 
arrests, but the predicted yearly total would still represent only a 
quarter of the 1.6 million arrests recorded in 2000. And an increase in 
illegal crossings during the spring months is typical ― the weather is 

For the last few years, border arrests 
have hovered at their lowest levels since the early 1970s. Since 2014, 
people seeking humanitarian protections ― particularly from the 
violence-plagued Central American countries of El Salvador, Guatemala 
and Honduras ― have made up a large percentage of all unauthorized 


Nonetheless, the numbers are sure to infuriate President Donald Trump,
 who has made cracking down on immigration a signature issue. Most of 
the measures his administration implemented over the last two months 
aimed to deter asylum seekers, whom the White House accuses of 
exploiting legal “loopholes” in order to gain lawful entry to the 
country or avoid getting locked up indefinitely in immigrant detention.
