Each day, I receive thousands of messages and emails. Below are three of them from the past 24 hours, and the response I’ve given to each. NOTE: I do not include the last name of the sender unless they explicitly request that I do so.

1) From Ronald:
Jeff Sessions claims border crossings are down because of Trump, is this true and if so, what’s your take?
DML: Yes, it is true. However, the real test is in the next few months.
In the months leading up to Trump’s inauguration, border crossings were up 120% because illegal aliens felt the need to “get in” before Trump took office. In January and February, the illegal crossings dropped by 40% when compared to the same time last year. You can chalk that up to 3 things: (1) The Trump effect; (2) The winter has been nasty, so travel is too difficult; and (3) As noted, crossings were up by 120% prior to him taking office, so the argument can be that they came early.
With the weather warming, and no measures in place to stop people from working here illegally, the real test is March, April, and May. If the drop stays at 40%, it’s a great start for Trump to work from. However, the 60% is equal to a big number of people so I hope he cuts off the magnet (jobs and welfare). That said, if the numbers are down by just 10%, or so, it’s not a thing to be touting, and here is why…
Trump eliminated the catch and release program, that’s great. But what that does is push illegals to revert to the “old way” of doing things, which is to outrun the Border Patrol. Thus, although apprehensions are down, those who once “walked in” will not try to “sneak in.” Remember, people who sneak in are never accounted for by Border Patrol.
2) From Kris:
I’ve been with you since the Bundy Ranch, when I saw you walk down to where the Blm was, I was shocked that you put your life on the line, and also was scared for you and your family. I’m happy that the Bundys had someone on their side and someone that could clam the tension that was happening between all sides. That day I knew I could trust you! I trust what you say is the truth. I’m excited that I will get the truth in my news. I wish our President would listen to you. I’m excited and can’t wait until Monday,and the day that we can watch it on our tv. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR EDUCATING PEOPLE..
Tell your team hi and thank them too.. DML you’re awesome!!!!
DML: You made my day, but, I must be honest, I was not defending the Bundy family. I was simply trying to be a voice of reason in the situation, as a whole. I didn’t want anyone from either side to be hurt or killed. I had never met the Bundy family or their supporters prior to arriving in NV.
3) From Marie:
Good morning DML. I have read a couple things on Facebook where they are talking about special education in public schools will be defunded under this bill H.R. 610. I went to congress.gov and can not find anything that has to do with public schools being defunded. So I was wondering if you could look into this because this will greatly effect my son and I. He is in the third grade and has an IEP. Though he has came a long way in his short years in school . He will struggle in school without the program. Thank you in advance, Marie
DML: From what I have read in the bill, it does not say your son’s programs will be defunded. That’s the Left trying to scare people, in my opinion.
