Should we roll out the red carpet and allow millions upon millions of thieves, rapists, gang members and drug dealers to come waltzing into this country any time they would like?
Should we broadcast a message to the rest of the world that anyone that can find a way to enter this country and somehow get to a “sanctuary city” can sign up for a plethora of welfare benefits and live a life of leisure at the expense of hard working American citizens? Yes, those questions sound absurd, but what I have just described will essentially be official U.S. government policy if the immigration bill going through Congress becomes law. And unfortunately, Democrats now say that they have the Republican votes that they need to get “immigration reform” through the House of Representatives. If this amnesty bill becomes law, it will encourage even more illegal immigration and it will be one more step toward making the U.S. border essentially meaningless.
Right now, we desperately need the American people to contact their representatives in Congress and demand that they vote against this bill. Sadly, this is not likely to happen because most Americans have absolutely no idea how negatively illegal immigration is affecting this nation.
The following are 19 very disturbing facts about illegal immigration that every American should know…
#1 57 percent of all households that are led by an immigrant (legal or illegal) are enrolled in at least one welfare program.
#2 According to one study, the cost to U.S. taxpayers of legalizing current illegal immigrants would be approximately 6.3 trillion dollars over the next 50 years.
#4 The Department of Homeland Security says that it has lost track of a million people that have entered this country but that appear never to have left.
#5 One out of every five children living in Los Angeles County has a parent that is in the country illegally.
#6 In one recent year, taxpayers in Los Angeles County spent 600 million dollars on welfare for children of illegal immigrants.
#7 Thanks to illegal immigration, California’s overstretched health care system is on the verge of collapse. Dozens of California hospitals and emergency rooms have shut down over the past decade because they could not afford to stay open after being endlessly swamped by illegal immigrants who were simply not able to pay for the services that they were receiving. As a result, the remainder of the health care system in the state of California is now beyond overloaded. This had led to brutally long waits, diverted ambulances and even unnecessary patient deaths. At this point, the state of California now ranks dead last out of all 50 states in the number of emergency rooms per million people.
#9 It is estimated that illegal aliens make up approximately 30 percent of the population in federal, state and local prisons and that the total cost of incarcerating them is more than $1.6 billion annually.
#10 The federal government actually has a website that teaches immigrantshow to sign up for welfare programs once they arrive in the United States.
#11 The Obama administration recently introduced the very first “unmanned” border station along the Texas-Mexico border.
#12 The Obama administration has sued individual states such as Arizona that have tried to crack down on illegal immigration.
#13 According to the FBI, there are approximately 1.4 million gang members living in our cities. Illegal immigration has been one of the primary factors that has fueled the growth of these gangs.
#15 Mexican drug cartels make approximately 6.6 billion dollars a year“exporting” illegal drugs to the United States.
#16 It is an open secret that Mexican drug cartels are openly conducting military operations inside the United States. The handful of border patrol agents that we have guarding the border are massively outgunned and outmanned.
#17 According to the Justice Department’s National Drug Intelligence Center, Mexican drug cartels were actively operating in 50 different U.S. cities in 2006. By 2010, that number had skyrocketed to 1,286.
#18 Overall, more than 55,000 people have been killed in drug-related violence in Mexico since 2006. That same level of violence will eventually show up in major U.S. cities unless something dramatic is done about illegal immigration.
#19 It is being projected that the Senate immigration bill will bring 33 million more people to the United States over the next decade.
One of the very few things that the federal government is actually required to do by the U.S. Constitution is to defend our borders, and unfortunately the Obama administration has willingly chosen to leave our borders completely wide open. In fact, you can go down to the Texas border right now and watch illegal immigrants hop right across the Rio Grande.
Several retired Border Patrol agents recently drafted an open letter to the American people on the subject of illegal immigration, and what they had to say was quite startling. The following is an excerpt from that letter that was in a recent Breitbart article…
“Transnational criminal enterprises have annually invested millions of dollars to create and staff international drug and human smuggling networks inside the United States; thus it is no surprise that they continue to accelerate their efforts to get trusted representatives in place as a means to guarantee continued success,” the Border Patrol agents wrote.
“We must never lose sight of the fact that the United States is the market place for the bulk of transnational criminal businesses engaged in human trafficking and the smuggling, distribution and sale of illegal drugs. Organized crime on this scale we are speaking about cannot exist without political protection.”
According to those retired border agents, by refusing to secure our border the Obama administration is openly facilitating the trafficking of drugs into the United States…
“Most heroin, cocaine, meth, and marijuana marketed in the United States is produced outside of our country, and then smuggled into the United States,” they wrote. “The placement of trusted foreign employees inside the United States is imperative to insure success in continuing to supply the demand, and returning the profits to the foreign organization. Members of these vicious transnational crime syndicates are already well established in more than 2,000 American cities and their numbers are increasing as networks expand and demands accelerate. These transnational criminals present a real and present danger to all Americans, and they live among us.”
Sadly, in politically correct America you can’t even talk about the problem of illegal immigration these days without being labeled as a “racist”.
For the record, I believe that all people deserve love and respect no matter what they look like or where they are born. God created us all and He loves us all very much. I have long been a very strong advocate for racial reconciliation in this country, and I will continue to be.
Unfortunately, we have a system of immigration today that greatly rewards lawless behavior. We have made coming into this country through the front door exceedingly difficult, but we have left the back door completely wide open.
So hard working, law-abiding people that want to do things the right way are kept out, but those that want to come here and commit crimes or abuse the system are free to come on over any time that they would like.
What sense does that make?
Our immigration system is completely broken, but these days we cannot even have a rational debate about these issues. In politically correct America, illegal immigrants have become a “favored class” of people that you are never supposed to say anything bad about.
In fact, one activist recently went out and actually got people to sign a petition that said that we should let illegal immigrants out of prison no matter what crimes they have committed…

I don't know how much more proof people need. It is very clear this is a government gone completely out of control. Why is it since bho became president everything is upside down? Our country is being diminished everyday and yet no one seems to care. How is this possible. Look to schools, universities and marxist themed messages spewed everyday. Yet these will be the same morons who will ask What the hell happened?
One of the best compilations I've seen, really! Paints a darker picture of the problems, overall.
Vern how about we paint a real American treasure for all to enjoy and maybe have a prideful smile at the end . .
iT APPEARS THAT MANY PEOPLE DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT IS GOING ON>.......The One World Government will be made up of 5 regions. The North American Union will be made up of Canada, USA, Mexico and I am not sure how far south, if it includes South America. If you are one country how can you have a border limiting access to another part of your country. I forgot where Russia is in the One World Government, Bust the Asian Countries are another Union; the European Union we are very much aware of. The Middle East Union.
How is it that this Government can push us into a One World Government without our consent?
You're right, and the sad thing is those people don't care and are the same ones who keep electing despots like Obama, Reid, pelosi, McCain, and the others. I was talking to one idiot woman in the grocery store and she said that the government pays for welfare, I asked her who do you think the government is, she said the president and Congress, I told her no, we taxpayers pay for all the welfare, she thought that the government, she didn't have any idea where the "government" gets the money, except by the printing press. Thes pople don't care and they vote for whomever promises them the most.
It's all about eventual political supremacy for the Progressives. Absolutely nothing more. In effect, the death of the Republic.
The younger generations are giving away our country to the One World order. Brought to you by the UN. We will loose all our freedoms that are our rights. We need to work on the younger ones and try to get them to see what they are giving away is their freedom. They will be slaves by the people they think will be happy living under them. Our time has ran out. Stand tall Stand strong Stand together.
Now that is what we have been saying since 1987 . . . amnesty first and border control latter . . how did that work out America . .??? Just issue GUEST WORKER CARDS TO ALL OF THEM - no BENEFITS - NO SS TAXES PAID,
All for votes!
Can we please start referring to these folks as "law breakers" instead of "illegal immigrants"?
As someone who comes from a family of "legal" immigrants, I prefer to call it like I see it--they broke the law by coming here!
It's obvious that the powers that be in DC don't understand the definition of the word "illegal" as much of what they do/overlook/allow is just that IMO so I am now using the term "law breakers" as it gets right to the point and even low info voters/politicos can understand what I'm talking about!
Thanks by the way for the list!
And, have you all heard about this--seems they've found a new farce to inflict on the country--asylum!
I can think of many more deserving folks from other countries who genuinely deserve asylum--but not these phony law breakers--JMHO!
The dirt bags running DC are the LAW BREAKERS!
Illegal alien remains the only broad range, universally correct term.
Immigrant means "a person who comes to a country to take up permanent residence ": certainly not always the case, facts not in evidence.
Alien means "Owing political allegiance to another country or government; foreign" Which is true in all cases.
