- “At the federal, state, and local levels, taxpayers shell out approximately $134.9 billion to cover the costs incurred by the presence of more than 12.5 million illegal aliens, and about 4.2 million citizen children of illegal aliens.” — Matt O’Brien and Spencer Raley.
- It is also rather more than the single payment of $25 billion that it will cost to build a wall — five and a half times more, and every year.
- “Undocumented immigrants are at least 142% more likely to be convicted of a crime than other Arizonans. They also tend to commit more serious crimes…” — John R. Lott.
- In 2015, included in the DEA’s drug-threat assessment was the fact that drug overdoses killed more people in the United States than car accidents or guns. Many of these drugs [were] smuggled in large volumes by drug cartels.”
In his State of the Union address on January 30, US President Donald J. Trump referred to the brutal murder of two 16-year-old girls from Long Island in December 2016 by members of the “savage MS-13 gang,” responsible for a spate of other gruesome killings in the area, as well.
Many of these gang members, he explained, had entered the United States illegally. “For decades, open borders have allowed drugs and gangs to pour into our most vulnerable communities,” he said.
Calling on Congress “to finally close the deadly loopholes that have allowed… criminal gangs to break into our country,” he listed the four pillars of his immigration-reform proposal:
- A path to citizenship for 1.8 million illegal immigrants who were brought to America by their parents.
- The construction of a “great wall on the southern border” and enforcement by agents patrolling and securing the border.
- Ending the visa lottery, “a program that randomly plans out green cards without regard for skill, merit, for the safety of American people.”
- Ending the “current, broken system” of chain migration of distant relatives, and limiting sponsorships to spouses and minor children.
Although he did not specify this in his speech, Trump reportedly is seeking $25 billion from Congress to fund the wall. Opponents of the wall have been arguing that illegal immigrants do not commit crimes at a higher rate than legal immigrants or native-born Americans; that illegal immigration has been a boon to the economy, rather than a drain on it; and that the cost both of deportation and a wall far exceeds the benefits of both. These claims are repeatedly voiced by the Trump administration’s detractors, as part of their campaign to accuse the president of racism; but what are the facts?
To set the record straight, let us take a look at a number of those that have been obscured or ignored by the media….
You don’t have to be a xenophobe to see the game plan here. All these refugees are running away from their families, homes and communities for a reason: corporate, military and covert intervention in their countries have turned them into plantations and vassal states of the empire. They have been evicted by the same forces which evicted “the deplorables” from washington years ago. That’s one side of the coin. The other side is that US immigration policy is broken by design. The idea is wholesale domestic economic and social destabilization to usher us into the same nightmare from which the immigrants are fleeing. Whenever you see a democratic operative taking trump to task for not caring about brown skinned children, picture a hormed demon with blood dripping from its fangs. That’s closer to reality. Some of them eat babies, and many of the rest of them know it. I’m not kidding.
Trump is no saint, he’s totally under siege, he’s not subtle and he may be completely out to lunch for all I know. But he’s the constitutionally elected president, he and the constitution are all that stands between us and the NWO, and he deserves the chance that the warmongering corporate DNC still resolutely refuses to give him.
When the latin american economies completely collapse as a result of federal reserve and wall street/london policies, the plan is to funnel them into the USA for processing along with the rest of us.
This is what a license to print money can buy: satanic evil.
