Are we such a garbage dump of a nation that we must desperately give citizenship to anybody and everybody we can find?
Newsflash: This is the greatest nation God has seen fit to raise up in the history of mankind. We can not only have the cream of the crop from other nations; we can ask them to wait in line, obey our laws, and prove themselves — and the ones worth having will do it because this is the place people all over the world dream of coming one day. American citizenship is a precious thing and it shouldn’t be given to people whose first act upon American soil was to violate our laws.
There are many compelling reasons President Donald Trump is not wrong on the immigration issue.
First, there's our border. The United Nations reported that 97 percent of the illegal immigrants who enter the U.S. clandestinely do so across the nearly 2,000-mile Mexican border, but only 20 percent of those who cross illegally are caught.
And, illegal immigrants do bring crime. Of the 61,529 criminal cases initiated by federal prosecutors in 2013, more than 40 percent were filed in court districts neighboring the border. Nearly 22 percent were drug-related, 19.7 percent were violent crimes, and 10.2 percent involved white-collar offenses.
Immigrants are also killing Americans. Per the Center for Immigration Studies, 57 percent of the 76 fugitive murderers wanted by the FBI in 2009 were foreign-born. The Center also disclosed that in Maricopa County in Arizona, 22 percent of felons are illegal immigrants.
The Pew Research Center estimated that there are nearly 12 million illegal aliens in the nation — and the key word is "estimated." Trump made that point when he said that illegal immigration is "coming from more than Mexico. It's coming from all over Latin America, and it's coming probably from the Middle East. But we don't know. Because we have no protection and we have no competence, we don't know what's happening. And it's got to stop."
The Whole Truth And Nothing But The Truth,
P.S. If you're like over 40 million of us in the United States, you're coming up on Social Security age, and thanks in part to illegal immigrants, there's no money for us.
