President Trump is continuing to crack down seriously on illegal immigrants. This is leading to a significant drop in illegal immigration and also is leading some illegals to leave the US. More are certain to follow after a story like this from CNN:
One of the largest tree and brush removal companies in the country pleaded guilty on Thursday to hiring and re-hiring hundreds of undocumented workers.
Asplundh Tree Expert, based in Willow Grove, PA, will pay $95 million to the federal government.
U.S. attorney special assistant Josh Davison says management at the company turned a blind eye for years while illegal immigrants did their work.
Davison says upper management did nothing to stop supervisors who hired illegal workers through word of mouth referrals.
… The $95 million figure is the largest settlement ever in an immigration case…
This is significant because other companies will see this $95 million figure and will be deterred from hiring illegals. This will lead many illegals to go back home when they cannot get jobs here in the US, and this will open up jobs for Americans.
Trump gets tougher. Look at this from Politico:
Trump wants 370 new judges to oversee immigration cases, as well as 1,000 additional attorneys at Immigration and Customs Enforcement and 10,000 more ICE agents to ramp up deportation efforts.
Wow. This is in addition to the border wall.
The illegal immigration problem was supposed to have been “solved” by the Simpson-Mazzoli bill of 1986, signed by president Ronald Reagan, which gave amnesty to more than 3 million illegals. In exchange, we were supposed to seal the border to stop future illegal immigration. Here is how Wikipedia describes it:
The Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA), Pub.L. 99-603, 100 Stat. 3445 enacted November 6, 1986, also known as the Simpson–Mazzoli Act, signed into law by Ronald Reagan on November 6, 1986, is an Act of Congress which reformed United States Immigration law. The Act
• required employers to attest to their employees’ immigration status;
• made it illegal to hire or recruit illegal immigrants knowingly;
• legalized certain seasonal agricultural illegal immigrants, and;
• legalized illegal immigrants who entered the United States before January 1, 1982 and had resided there continuously with the penalty of a fine, back taxes due, and admission of guilt; candidates were required to prove that they were not guilty of crimes, that they were in the country before January 1, 1982, and that they possessed minimal knowledge about U.S. history, government, and the English language.
At the time, the Immigration and Naturalization Service estimated that about four million illegal immigrants would apply for legal status through the act and that roughly half of them would be eligible.
Naturally Democrats promised all of these wonderful things in exchange for amnesty but they never kept their promises, as they never do. Thus illegal immigration has spiked since then, particularly under Obama when it spun totally out of control.
Now president Trump finally is taking action, not only with the border wall and this major fine for Asplundh but other actions too like this from Breitbart News:
U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ Department of Justice (DOJ) said it will file suit against a Colorado corporation accused of hiring foreign workers over Americans. It will be the first-ever lawsuit based on President Trump’s ‘Buy American, Hire American’ executive order.
In a statement by Sessions, the DOJ announced it file a lawsuit against Crop Production Services, Inc. The company is based in Loveland, Colorado. The DOJ will claim the company discriminated against American workers in violation of the Immigration and Nationality Act.
This is a major shift in policy and will continue for as long as president Trump is in office. It will act as a big deterrent to illegal immigration. Here is more good news on another subject entirely about strong border security under president Trump. The Washington Times reports:
A stroll to Quitobaquito Spring, a desert oasis and the crown jewel of Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument in southern Arizona, was forbidden a decade ago, the victim of a border out of control.
Even a few years ago, visitors would be allowed only if accompanied by Park Service rangers armed with military-style rifles. The park’s superintendent at the time, Lee Baiza, wondered whether visitors would ever be able to walk to the oasis alone.
Fast-forward to 2017, and a solitary walk is not only possible, but it’s also a delight. It’s a chance to be alone with a few ducks, turtles and the endangered pupfish that makes its home in the oasis and the spring that feeds it.
Organ Pipe is one of the success stories of the border, where a combination of stiffer enforcement, changing migration patterns and a new spirit of cooperation between federal agencies has produced gains unimaginable just a few years ago.
Indeed we are seeing a restoration of civil order under president Trump that is being manifested in many ways, rather than the chaos of Obama which was intentional like the total trashing and lawlessness on the Mexican border. This is why Trump will be re-elected.
Now here is an excerpt from a website called The Week talking about a muslim named Ali:
Ali is among the refugees to hail from one of the countries affected by Trump’s executive order. Many of them are now seeking to settle in Mexico City. What keeps Ali in Mexico is not the danger of crossing the border, but rather the new administration’s anti-immigrant rhetoric.
Great. There are many countries that these muslims can go to, including other muslim countries. Why do they insist on coming to Christian nations? Particularly when they hate our faith?
How about this from Fox News:
As part of a massive illegal immigration sweep, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced Thursday that officials this week arrested nearly 500 illegal immigrants living in sanctuary cities across the country.
… Illegal immigrants with criminal charges or known gang-affiliations were targeted, the released said, noting that recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program were not.
In Philadelphia, 107 illegal immigrants were arrested, while 101 were arrested in Los Angeles and 45 people were arrested in New York.
The release noted that 18 of the 498 people arrested were gang members or have gang affiliations.
A Mexican illegal immigrant in Los Angeles who was arrested is a member of the Colonia Chiques gang, a group dubbed one of the “largest and deadliest gangs” in southern California’s Ventura County by the FBI.
We would never see this if Hillary were president. Thus it is plain to see that Trump is serious and is now sending agents right into “sanctuary cities” and there is nothing that the liberals can do since the raids are done by surprise. This is good news. And as Nikitas3.com predicted, Trump is just starting to act and he is starting with the bad people. It is going to take years just to root them out. Meanwhile The Daily Caller reports:
Illegal immigrants and their children eat up $135 billion in public funds every year, according to a report that examines the fiscal impact of unauthorized immigration in the U.S.
The study, released Wednesday by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), is one of the most comprehensive analyses of the costs of illegal immigration to date. It concludes that illegal immigration is a “staggering and crippling” drain on the public treasury.
Governments at the federal, state and local levels spent a total of $134.86 billion on illegal aliens in 2016, according to FAIR estimates.
At the same time, tax contributions by illegal immigrants did not come close to offsetting expenditures. Governments at all levels collected just $18.97 billion in taxes from illegal aliens, meaning that illegal immigration was responsible for a net fiscal drain of $115.89 billion last year.
… FAIR estimates the U.S. is home to 12.5 million illegal aliens, plus their 4.2 million U.S. citizen children. Each one of those individuals accounts for $8,075 in taxpayer spending, FAIR says.
While illegal immigration and its costs are largely thought to be a federal problem, states and cities spend far more on illegal immigrants than Washington, according to the FAIR report. Illegal immigration costs state and local governments about $89 billion in 2016, almost twice the $45.8 billion in federal expenditures.
So now we have an actual dollar estimate from a conservative group, which means that it is based on fact and not emotion. The Daily Caller also reports:
… At the federal level, the lion’s share of spending on illegal immigrants came from health care expenses, including billions spent on Medicaid uncompensated hospital visits. Illegal immigration cost the U.S. government $17.1 billion in medical expenses in 2016, or about 37 percent of all federal outlays to illegal immigrants.
Now here is The Daily Caller reporting about money being sent from the US to Mexico:
Mexico, which takes in more remittances than any other Latin American country by a wide margin, will likely receive $30.5 billion from the Mexican diaspora living abroad — 6.5 percent more than it did in 2016. About 95 percent of Mexico’s annual remittance haul comes from the U.S., according to Mexican bank BBVA Bancomer.
Remittances to Mexico from the U.S. have been rising in recent years due to improved labor market conditions for immigrants in America and the falling cost of sending money abroad, says the World Bank-sponsored Global Knowledge Partnership on Migration and Development (KNOMAD).
Since Mexico has about a $1 trillion annual economy (the US has $20 trillion), those remittances to Mexico would be like $600 BILLION being sent to the US from abroad.
And not only are we taking in millions of poor Mexicans, but we are supplying the Mexican economy with a lot of money. Isn’t America great?
Now here is an editorial about crime:
Violent Crime Surges in US
Charles Fain Lehman reported recently on the Washington Free Beacon (WFB) website:
A new FBI report on crime in the United States released Monday revealed that the violent crime rate increased in 38 out of 50 states in 2016.
Analysis of the FBI;s Uniform Crime Report (UCR) showed increases in violent crime ranging from under one to more than thirty percent across the United States. Vermont led in terms of increase in the violent crime rate—a 34 percent spike between 2015 and 2016. Following it was Hawaii, with a 24 percent increase. The next five highest states—Arizona, Illinois, Alabama, Wyoming, and Alaska—saw an increase of between 10 and 14 percent.
This is the culmination of the policies of Obama and the pro-criminal and pro-illegal-immigration Democrats. As Obama stirs up the militants in America, like blacks against whites and police; as illegal aliens become more vicious and brazen, including muslims and MS-13; with drugs flooding over our porous border; and with destruction of the economy leading to more poverty and hopelessness, there is going to be an increase in crime.
Vermont, a state that is 1% black, led the increase?
Yes, because blacks from New York City have been bringing heroin into Vermont for years now just as they have been ferrying drugs into my town in Massachusetts. WFB reports:
… those (crime rate) increases are largely localized to certain major cities…
Indeed the increase is largely in cities, where liberals live including small cities like mine. Look at the massive homicide rate in Chicago, Obama’s hometown and one of the most corrupt cities in the US that is controlled with an iron grip by Democrats. WFB also reports:
The (study) also shows an increase in violent crime not only in cities, but also suburban and rural areas. While violent crime rose more in cities in 2016 by 4.3 percent, it is also up in suburban areas by 2.2 percent and “nonmetropolitan counties” by 1.6 percent.
Yes, and the blacks have moved into suburbs and rural areas too. Over the last 10 years, they have moved into my town by the thousands and brought murder, violence, shootings, stabbings, arson, armed robbery, drugs, illegitimacy and assault. WFB reports:
“The Department of Justice is committed to working with our state, local, and tribal partners across the country to deter violent crime, dismantle criminal organizations and gangs, stop the scourge of drug trafficking, and send a strong message to criminals that we will not surrender our communities to lawlessness and violence,” Sessions said.
Notice “dismantle criminal organizations and gangs, stop the scourge of drug trafficking”…
Black and illegal-immigrant gangs are the main drug traffickers all over our nation. An MS-13 gang member was recently arrested in my once-peaceful city. MS-13 came in during the last decade through Obama’s open borders.
