As Democrats claim that there is no crisis in the United States, they ignore the facts, and for their own political ends! In fact, just this past week Gallup revealed that 1/5 of El Salvadorian residents, which constitutes 19.1% of their population or 1.1 million out of 5.7 million already reside within the United States, some legally, but many illegally! Most of the El Salvadorian residents live within California, Texas came in second, and Florida, Virginia, and New York came in third.

Even more frightening, is not even who is already here, but who and how many are coming! Gallup revealed that in addition to the one out of five here from El Salvador alone, FIVE MILLION LATIN AMERICANS PLAN TO RELOCATE TO THE UNITED STATES WITHIN THE NEXT YEAR!
Breitbart.com reported that…
Five million Latin Americans plan to migrate to the United States in the next 12 months, and an estimated 42 million more say they want to enter the country.
Those statistics were in a report from Jim Clifton, the chairman and CEO at Gallup:
Forty-two million seekers of citizenship or asylum are watching to determine exactly when and how is the best time to make the move. This suggests that open borders could potentially attract 42 million Latin Americans. A full 5 million who are planning to move in the next 12 months say they are moving to the U.S.

Therefore, while the Department of Homeland Security struggles to have enough detention beds, and are forced to release the illegal aliens into the interior of the United States of America, Democrats are fighting to allow these illegal aliens to be permitted complete access to the United States, with all their needs being taken care of by the American taxpayer, especially if they bring a child! As a result, child kidnapping has become a major problem, as they use other people’s children as props to gain access to America’s ‘Welfare State’, where they are given access to free food, free housing, free healthcare, and where everything else is taken care of. It has caused America’s welfare rolls to skyrocket, food stamps to be bloated, housing assistance and Medicaid to be pillaged, and Emergency Rooms to be overwhelmed! Meanwhile, Americans are asked to hand over money that American families use to pay bills and save for the future to the government in ever-increasing taxes to fund these ever-expanding programs!
A great many Democrats like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are even asking to do away with agencies like ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement), and the DHS (Department of Homeland Security), as they push for open borders, and an end to America as an Independent nation!
Democrats have also called for allowing the migrants to enter the United States, but to put trackers on their ankles. However, that would mean that the welfare rolls, as well as other programs, would skyrocket, in addition to the cost of removing illegals, as each removal would cost an approximate $72,000 per illegal alien!
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) spokeswoman Katie Waldman rejected the Democrats’ proposals, saying in a statement:
Without the necessary detention authority and sufficient funding for family beds to enable ICE to detain family units when they are ordered removed, ICE will still only be able to remove a very small percentage of family units, thereby increasing the pull factors and further contributing to the border crisis. For example last year, only one percent of all removals were on ATD, at a cost of $72,000 per removal.
Meanwhile, Democrats have shut ICE out of the border security negotiations this week, as the radical wing of their party has deemed the officers racist! In fact, ICE had to have a briefer stand outside the closed-door meeting on Wednesday while negotiators working on a homeland-security spending deal heard from border experts, who made their pitch for a border wall. Administration officials said that they ICE officials were NEVER ALLOWED INTO THE ROOM! Reports indicate that…
If he had been allowed to speak, he would have told them that the limits they’re pondering to immigrant detention, proposed by Democrats, would lead to 30,000 people being released back onto the streets, including thousands of migrants with criminal records.
Even Senate Republicans’ ante would mean cuts to ICE’s ability to hold all the illegal immigrants the agency says need to be detained if the government is going to begin to make a dent in the illegal immigration problem.
Therefore, since ICE officials were not allowed in, they had to produce a ‘briefing document’, that they could present to the negotiators! However, in the end, the Democrats still proposed to gut ice funding, leaving fewer beds for the illegals, which means tens of thousands of illegals would have to be released into the interior of the United States! Sadly, that doesn’t even include the fact that the proposals cut funding in countless other border security areas, and if funding a wall was included, it would be less than 1.2 Billion, which isn’t enough to build even 3% of the border wall needed, and no improvements to existing structures that are in need of improvement!
Even more problematic, the Democrat approvals would mean ICE wouldn’t have the funding nor the manpower to remove the criminal illegals from American communities!
Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) said that they are negotiating beds and a wall, but those are both sticking points! He said…
“It’s one of the things that are being negotiated.”
The question is, HOW CAN AMERICAN SECURITY BE A STICKING POINT AT ALL!!!
Immigration experts say that in addition to a wall, detention beds are a critical component in funding if Congress’s goal is to reduce illegal immigration. Mark Krikorian, who is the Executive Director for Immigration Studies stated…
“The border wall’s not unimportant, but we’re going to get more bang for the buck for detention than for extra fencing. I’m not against extra fending, I’m for it, but we put an inordinate emphasis on it, when in fact holding people in detention to make sure they show up [for deportation] is going to be a more effective deterrent to future people.”
Regardless, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) led a rally on Capitol Hill on Thursday where she said ICE…
“does not deserve a dime.”
It is not surprising since she has already called for the abolishment of ICE, and the Department of Homeland Security. After all, she said that Latin Americans have more of a right to be in the United States of America, than the American people! Sadly, she isn’t alone, as Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and a number of others are siding with Ocasio-Cortez!
A Democrat aid admitted that…
“Limiting the number of ICE detention beds is a way of controlling the Trump administration’s cruel immigration policies. ICE is currently detaining recent border crossers who have passed asylum interviews for too long, and they are arresting many people in the interior of the United States who are not criminals or who have minor criminal records, including many with only immigration violations.”
Currently, ICE has around 46,000 people in detention, with almost 21,000 who have committed crimes in the United States! Under all of the Democrat proposals, thousands would have to be released into the American interior of the nation, as ICE says it would force them to re-implement ‘catch and release’ policies! Currently, they are already releasing between 300 to 500 per day due to their inability to detain the massive numbers of illegals!
Meanwhile, Democrats and Immigrant-rights advocates cite that it less expensive to release illegals than detain them, but that doesn’t account for the massive costs that the American taxpayers incur, due to countless other factors! ICE also pointed out that while ankle bracelets are an option, 30% are able to cut them within hours or days! Also, when illegals are released, it costs the American taxpayer more than $75,000 for each deportation, which is much greater than providing detention beds! Democrats also are wanting to spend more money on the quality of detention facilities, rather than the expansion, despite the fact that they are treated with three meals a day, medical treatment, shelter, and better living conditions than they are even remotely used to!
On Sunday, the President voiced his concerns as he said…
Therefore, what is the plan, and why do the Democrats so desperately want the border wide open? Ultimately, Democrats and their Progressive-Socialist and Communist allies are trying every possible means to open the border and remove any remnants of an independent and sovereign American nation. A move that would push America ever-closer to Marxist ideology.
American’s have always been one of the most generous and hospitable people on the earth. However, generosity and hospitality, does not mean that we have to sacrifice our American identity. It does not mean that we have to sacrifice our American values, history, and heritage. It does not mean that we have to sacrifice our children’s safety, and future. In fact, it is quite the opposite. We should continue to allow immigrants to come into our country from all over the world. However, they should be willing to do so through legal means. Immigrants should benefit our society, instead of threatening it, demean it, or try to destroy it. If those are their goals, they are not our friends at all, but an enemy of our constitutional republic’s very fabric. It is high time that we secure our southern border and enforce our constitutional laws. After all, Thomas Jefferson said it best when he said:
“A Country With No Border, Is Not A Country”
Also, former President Ronald Reagan said:
“A nation that cannot control its borders is not a nation.”
Their words could not be truer or have more meaning at any time in our nation than at the present time. Our country is under siege by those who wish to exterminate our Constitutional Republic. Our national sovereignty is under attack, as Fabian’s and Progressives try to fight for the Elitist Political Class, instead of for those who they are elected by to represent. Our Constitutional Republic is under threat, as they try to erase America from the history books, in favor of a One-World Progressive-Socialist and Communist government. It is now up to us, ‘The America People,’ to fight for our right to exist as a nation. To fight for our right to be American. We must fight for not only our future but for the future of generations to come. Then, and only then, will be able to ‘secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity,’ as established by our Founders, so many generations ago.
