The border wall has taken over most of the news.
We’ve seen many stories that follow immigration news. Protests of O’Rourke to defend his fellow Texans. Ted Cruz championing for El Chapo to pay for the wall. And even W magazine doing a photoshoot with Roma actress Yalitza Aparicio at the border. However, a new CMS study has shown that the number of undocumented migrants has declined and visa overstays far surpass illegal border crossings for those numbers of undocumented.
