Regardless of what the bleeding heart liberal sites may tell you, illegal immigration is a growing threat to our society.
It is always staggering to see the left swept it under the carpet as a non-issue, but the fact remains that undocumented immigrants weaken our economy and national security.
The discussion over the last year has focused largely on the Mexican-American border. Trailblazers like Donald Trump have made bold plans to correct this gaping hole in our security, but suggesting a wall should be built. Critics have branded him a racist bigot for suggesting the sound plan, trying to make him out to be against Mexican Americans.
But they conveniently ignore the fact that the open border allows more than just Mexicans across. It is essentially a revolving door for anyone–from anywhere in the world–to waltz into the United States. Despite the hard work of our border patrol police, they still make it through.
And the numbers are simply astounding.
From The San Diego Tribune:
Not everyone who gets apprehended at the U.S.-Mexico border is from Mexico.
In the first six months of the year, 264,185 people were apprehended somewhere along the Southwest border, and 49.6 percent of them were from Mexico, according to data from the U.S. Border Patrol.
Because of how porous the border is, it has allowed a vast number of illegals to sneak into America. The article goes on to list the many nations of origin of these illegals. Among the obvious South American nations, it includes India, Romania, even China. The numbers are in the thousands.
Does the left really expect us to believe these people are simply hard-working folk just looking for an opportunity? We are under constant threat of terrorism and espionage. One of our chief threats comes in the form of Chinese hackers and infiltrators, who regularly compromise our networks (private and government) and national security. Many of these hacks originated within the United States.
Hmm, how did those spies get through? Perhaps an open, unregulated border along the south of the United States?
