President Trump claims the justification for his dreadful warnings about illegal immigration, because the authorities are struggling to cope with the influx of migrants crossing the southern border.
& # 39; Everyone acknowledges that now, from the moment I announced my run up to president, I was 100% right at the border, & # 39; tweeted the president Tuesday.
& # 39; Remember the heat I took?
& # 39; Democrats must disappear now.
& # 39; The boundary is being resolved. Mexico won't let the people through! & # 39;

Trump was probably talking about asylum laws that allow migrants to stay in the country while their claims are being processed.
Earlier on Tuesday, new US customs and border surveillance data indicated that more than 103,000 migrants were arrested or denied in March on the border with Mexico, an increase of 35 percent over the previous month and more than twice as many as the same period last year.
Approximately 92,000 of the 103,000 migrants were detained between the ports of entry, while the remaining 11,000 appeared at the ports of entry to request asylum and were & # 39; inadmissible & # 39; considered.
After the new data were released on Tuesday, the Chief of Law Enforcement Operations, Brian Hastings of the CBP, told reporters: "We have arrived at the breaking point."
& # 39; The current situation is untenable for border controls, & # 39; he added.
Patrol agent Rodolfo Karisch of the Rio Grande Valley sector spoke on Tuesday about the National Security Security Committee of the Senate and said that an influx of migrants is coming through his sector every week.
Patrol agent Rodolfo Karisch, chief of the Rio Grande Valley, spoke to a hearing at the Senate Homeland Security Service on the same day, saying that an influx of caravans from his sector is coming through his sector every week.
& # 39; A lot of media attention has focused on caravans coming from Central America & # 39 ;, said Karisch.
& # 39; But the fact is that RGV receives caravan equivalent numbers every seven days. & # 39;
The official said his sector has arrested people from 50 different countries, including China, Bangladesh, Turkey, Egypt and Romania.
The steady increase in migrant arrivals, which has been built up over the past few months, is driven by a growing number of children and families, especially from Central America.
Children and people traveling as a family made up 67 percent of those arrested who were arrested by border police officers between official ports last month, officials said.
The steady increase in migrant arrivals, which have been built up in recent months, is driven by a growing number of children and families, especially from Central America.
In March 2018, the same category represented one third of the arrests.
Trump has become increasingly frustrated by the increasing number of Central American migrants trying to cross the southern border, and his anger is directed at his own officials, congress and Latin American countries, who, according to him, have not done enough to to stop citizens. travel to the United States.
On Sunday, Trumps top domestic security officer, Kirstjen Nielsen, said she would stop, and a senior official said that other agency leaders had not done enough to counter the increase in immigration.
Immigration experts believe that more migrants are likely to try to cross in the coming months, as the numbers usually peak around May.
