Why it is a severe economic and national security threat.
We cannot, if we value national security and our economic outlook, continue to leave our borders unprotected.
According to Breitbart – illegals accounted for 30% of murders in some states. In 2008-2014, 40% of murders in Florida were committed by illegals. In New York it was 34% and 17.8% in Arizona.
During 08-14, illegals accounted for 38% of all murders in California, Texas, Arizona, Florida, and New York despite equating to just 5.6% of the total population in those states.
The 38% number is 7,085 out of a total 18,643.
Those statistics, reported by Breitbart, were exposed using the Department of Justice data on our correctional system. The numbers were discussed at a New Hamshire press conference which you can view here.
The Texas Department of Public Safety reported that between 08-14, 35% of all murders were committed by illegals – an average of 472 per year from 04 to 08. You can see an annual report on the number of incarcerated illegal immigrants by clicking here.
In addition, a large portion of undocumented aliens eventually participate in gang activity, which is responsible for 80% of violent crimes committed. The center for immigration studies says “Gang investigators in Virginia estimate that 90% of the members of MS-13, the most notorious immigrant gang, are illegal immigrants.”
The reality is, they take jobs away from Americans as evidenced by documented citizens regularly losing jobs while illegals gained them at a steady rate during the same time period.
Consider this quote, “The number of immigrants added to the labor force every year is of a magnitude not seen in this country for over a century, if this huge influx of mostly low-skill workers provides some benefits to the economy as a whole—especially by keeping our workforce young, in contrast to an increasingly geriatric Europe and Japan—it also threatens to depress further the wages of blue-collar Americans and put strains on an already overburdened safety net.” (source)
Believe it or not, our very own puppet president Mr. Barack H. Obama said that in his 2006 autobiography.
He continued, “when I see Mexican flags waved at pro-immigration demonstrations, I sometimes feel a flush of patriotic resentment. When I’m forced to use a translator to communicate with the guy fixing my car, I feel a certain frustration.”
We’re in trouble economically. As top experts such as Dr. Ron Paul predict an upcoming “Day of Reckoning”, China liquidates US treasuries, and respected economists warn the general public, it becomes increasingly obvious that an economic reset is inevitable. Based on this information, are we really in a position to import millions of poverty stricken immigrants at this time?
When I say these things, I do it because there is a preponderance of evidence to support my assertions. I do it because I want to wake people up. It is impossible to run an economy based on infinite debt. As it stands, our country will be unable to remain fiscally sustainable for much longer while spending billions on social programs. As an American who supports free market, private property, small federal government, and our constitution – I believe it is prudent for us to stand up against illegal immigration. My conclusion is not based on the often sensationalized left/right paradigm – it comes from the harsh truth that we are dealing with a subsidiary of globalization and a serious threat to our national sovereignty.
