    President Trump pleaded with Congress to do something as illegal immigration across the southwestern border soared this spring.

    Republicans seemed willing, but it was a nonstarter for Democrats. Party leaders even accused Mr. Trump of manufacturing the crisis.

    So the president turned to Mexico with a combination of negotiations, controls, threats and even an explicit quid pro quo: Do something to stop 4,000 people from crossing Mexican territory each day en route to the U.S. or face crippling tariffs.

    Mexican negotiators ran to Washington to make a deal. Mr. Trump didn’t get everything he wanted, but he got enough.

    By July, the numbers were dropping. By September, they were in manageable territory and falling.

    With additional help from El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala — the countries of most of the children and families that made up the surge — the president effectively outsourced the border problem to Mexico and got the Mexicans to do what Congress wouldn’t.

    “It is painfully ironic that Mexico has done more than Congress to stem the tide of illegal immigration to our southern border since May,” Ken Cuccinelli, acting deputy Homeland Security secretary, told The Washington Times. “Mexico is not perfect by any means, but they’re doing more now than any time in your adult lifetime to partner with us actively to drive the numbers down.”

    What changed, analysts say, is the incentive structure.

    Exactly, there's a bit of a labor shortage.

    Mexican illegals fill a void by doing jobs that many Americans don't want.

    Republicans bound to Capitalism are truly talking out of their butts, when they say they want to tackle Illegal Immigration, while touting of the Capitalist system which empowers Illegals for cheap labor.

    You truly don't get rid of Illegals until you tackle Capitalism too.

    I'm sure the Dim Dems and Loony Libs HATE this news because it drastically cuts the possible illegal voters they'll have.
