I was listening to The Daily today and I noticed something interesting...

The amount of people crossing the border into the United States is at a peak, the highest amount since 2014. Could there be a relationship between the amount of people crossing and how strict immigration laws are? Like how gun sales went down after Trump entered office because many people were convinced it was the end of the gun control movement?

I think the data is hard to judge, but if you attribute the 04 peak to the new policies implemented after 9/11, and the 2019 peak to the Trump administration’s border enforcement.... well.

This also including the reforms Clinton signed in 1996 which I think were rather conservative? Or maybe it’s more about economics...
