Unfettered, Uncontrolled Immigration is a Cancer on the American Republic
Flopping Aces ^ | 02-01-23 | Vince

The question is, why does it continue unabated?  There are lots of reasons.

One of the big drivers is the pernicious Chamber of Commerce.  Big business in America needs workers.  Illegal immigrants swell the worker pool, doing many of those supposed “jobs Americans won’t do.” You know, those in the construction industry, hotels, farming, etc.  To the degree that big business can employ illegal immigrants at wages below those which would be required to pay Americans to work, illegal immigration is a winning issue for them.

Another is the Catholic Church, which not only solicits funds from parishioners but also generates hundreds of millions of dollars annually for supporting the illegal alien invasion.

The Chamber and the Vatican are only part of the cabal of businesses, NGOs and government agencies that have built an ecosystem around the illegal immigrant trade. Somebody has to sell the cell phones the government is giving to illegals.  Companies have to facilitate the tens of billions of dollars illegal aliens send home every year. Someone has to provide the gasoline for planes to fly immigrants around the country.   Schools get bigger budgets – to the tune of $59 billion.  Hospitals earn almost $20 billion a year. Even hotels get into the mix, with one upscale Times Square hotel with rooms going for $400 a night completely booked with illegal immigrants some of whom spend their time beating their spouses, doing drugs, drinking, throwing out food and having sex in the stairways. And of course the tens of thousands of bureaucrats across the country at all levels who must be hired to deal with the onslaught.  All of this is paid for by the government, which means by taxpayers. Beyond all of that, we’re even paying $6 million a day to defense contractors to NOT build a wall on our southern border!

The amounts involved are simply staggering, well over $100 billion annually (or $200 billion depending on who’s counting) and that’s surely a severe undercount when considering that doesn’t count the “enforcement” of the border element of the equation. Every single year

Needless to say, there are a lot of people in the country making money from the surge in illegal immigrants. While your money goes into the pockets of the illegal alien empowerment cabal, it’s only money.  There are other, far more vicious costs.  Not the least of which was paid by the families of the 100,000 Americans who died of a fentanyl overdose, a drug that almost exclusively comes over the southern border.  Plus there were many times that number of addicts who didn’t succumb and continued to wreak havoc in their homes and communities. And then there are the tens of thousands of women and children who suffer as a result of sex trafficking across the border. And then there’s the price paid in life and treasure by the victims of illegal alien crime.  And Democrats whined when Trump wanted to spend a few billion to build a wall

And exactly how many illegal immigrants are in the country?  Numbers are all over the map.  In 2021 DHS estimated that the number of illegal aliens in 2018 was 11 million.  Not surprisingly that’s essentially the exact same number the government has been claiming there are for decades!  That 11 million is of course a lie.  The same year Yale and MIT estimated the number at 22 million and potentially as high as 29 million.  Way back in 2005 Bear Sterns estimated the number was 20 million with another 3 million coming in annually.  If that assessment was accurate then here 18 years later we’d have another 52 million illegals in the country for a total of 72 million!

The one thing we know is that the government has been telling us the number is 11 million since the 90s. That is a lie.  It is simply impossible.  In just the last 22 months 5.2 million people illegally crossed into the United States, and that doesn’t include the hundreds of thousands if not millions who eluded detection.  The exact number of illegal aliens in our midst is impossible to know for certain, but the most likely number is 35 million or more.

Given that illegal aliens seem to make up almost 10% of our population, the question is again:  Why doesn’t someone stop this invasion?  The real answer is actually quite simple:  Power.

Draggin America’s ass into the third world one “caravan” at a time. Illegal aliens will outnumber Americans in a couple more years at the rate FJB is going. FJB will be giving illegals million dollar bonuses to come to America.

“The real answer is actually quite simple: Power.”

No, the answer is MONEY! As the author says in the article. Sure money begets power, but there are hundreds of thousands of people and companies getting rich off of the government paying out huge sums — OUR tax money. Or, more properly, fake, printed fiat money that drives inflation that costs all of us. We either write a direct income tax check or pay more for everything we buy.

Either way, we are royally screwed.

I am SO sick and tired of hearing “Para español, por favor presione 1” on the phone on every call to a company.

“Unfettered, Uncontrolled Immigration is a Cancer on the American Republic”

Yes, yes it is.

Into any system, uncontrolled introduction of foreign matter is more than simply disruptive.
It can manifets in unalterable changes.
It can also result in catastrophic system failure.

Just as intended by Soros, Klaus Schwab, and American Marxists.

For most of our history, until the middle of the 20th century, most immigrants to America had to say goodbye to everyone and everything that they had ever known, to take a long journey to somewhere they had never been before, just for the opportunity to work for the rest of their lives and make better lives for their children.

It was almost Darwinian. Normal, average people don’t do that. Only exceptionally driven people do. IMHO, the quality of our immigrants is a big reason why we were so successful as a nation. Now with cheap air travel and open borders, anyone and everyone can come on in.

There are 8 billion people in the world. Half of them would come to the U.S. tomorrow if they could. That is not nationalistic bravado, but the simple acknowledgement of the fact that over half of the world lives in conditions that would be considered worse than the worse abject poverty in the U.S., living on a few dollars a day and struggling every day to find food and clean water.

I ask liberals how many of the 8 billion people in the world should we admit into the U.S. tomorrow? None of them say all of them. Instead, they all argue that it is a false argument, because most of the starving population of the world would be happy simply going to another country, not the U.S., ignoring the fact that most of the illegal immigrants currently streaming across our borders cross several other countries to get here.

Just last week an illegal immigrant of a very ethnic persuasion pulled into a Dollar Tree Store in Upper Sandusky Ohio . Got his machete out , went in and hacked to death a precious 22 year old bride just married a week ago prior. She was a very devoted Christian little girl and once you went through her register you would always remember her . Warm smile and kindness . The local news media is burying the story as well as announcing that it was a local upper Sandusky man that murdered her . Nope ! Inner City Columbus near the Somali Muslim enclave . It is a darned shame I wasn’t sitting outside while that Cherokee woman of mine was shopping . The machete would never had made it in the store . I always carry 45 rounds in spare magazines for the old Ruger P90 . 45 rounds of .45 caliber would have probably done the job . If only I could have been there . My little brother Phil lives just around the corner from that store .

Exactly what economist Milton Friedman said. He said you can’t allow unfettered immigration legal or illegal into a welfare nation. He said the system will eventually collapse. The larger the system he said, the greater the collapse.
