Every American—rich and poor, black and white, even Republicans and Democrats—we all want to feel safe at night. To enjoy our lives, our families, our work.
But only one party will do what it takes to keep us safe. And you have no idea how dangerous the streets of America really are.
Among the many challenges facing America, one very close to home is the danger of illegal immigration. Though the left conveniently ignores the problem, millions of undocumented aliens live among us. They have no official record, do not pay taxes, and are free to break a litany of laws.
Staggering numbers of criminals shouldn’t even be here.
The government does very little to deport these people, leaving them to run free reign through our towns and cities. While some may argue that these immigrants come to America just for a better life, they cannot argue with the facts that thousands of these aliens commit violent crimes.
The most recent data from Texas is shocking. We are fitting the bill for a staggering number of criminals who shouldn’t even be in this country.
A report recently released by the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) revealed that Texas taxpayers have been forced to foot the expense of over 195,000 criminal aliens who were booked into Texas jails between June 1, 2011 and June 30, 2016. Sixty-six percent of those criminal aliens identified by the DPS were aliens whose Department of Homeland Security (DHS) status was that of being illegally present in the United States at the time of their arrest.
The crimes they committed are the worst kind: homicide, assault, burglary, drug, kidnapping, theft, sexual assault and more. The list goes on and on. These are individuals who snuck into this country, thanks to Obama’s weak and liberal immigration approach. Instead of tightening our borders and ejecting caught illegals, Obama has done nothing. In fact he’s fought to give amnesty to these hardened criminals.
Currently the U.S. government is doing very little to enforce deportation. When they find illegals, they don’t escort them back to the border, they simply let them free. This is why we have so many violent criminals in our jails. They think America is soft on crime. They can sneak in whenever they want and do whatever they want, with little consequences.
Nationally, nearly one million immigrants have ignored orders of deportation, including more than 170,000 criminal aliens, Breitbart Texas reported on Monday. Those numbers are based upon a report published by the Center for Immigration Studies Policy Studies Director Jessica Vaughn.
“The fact that almost 10 percent of the illegal resident population has already been ordered removed and is still here illustrates just how dysfunctional our immigration enforcement system is. It also should be of great concern that 20 percent of them are conviction criminals, and that most of these are at large in our communities,” Vaugh told told the Washington Times’s Stephen Dinan.
It’s a problem the left continues to ignore. It’s easy to see why; the liberal elite live in places untouched by illegal immigration. They have armed guards, they live in gated houses, and they’re not afraid of an increase in violent crime perpetrated by illegals. Let the peons deal with it! So long as they’re safe.
It’s time we got leadership who will fix this problem, once and for all.
