How Many More?

"They're Coming to America" - Neil Diamond

The numbers are staggering. Should we call them invaders instead of migrants, since that word better describes the hordes of humanity coming across what used to be our southern border, a border that has been effectively erased? In March, the COVID positivity rate for those breaching our border was about 6 percent. Many of these people cannot speak English and have few job skills other than manual labor. Recently, a convicted sex offender was one of 35 migrants arrested in Texas for entering the country illegally. An Afghan evacuee has been charged with raping a woman in Missoula, Montana. We are beyond a crisis and are now experiencing a disaster.

The overwhelmed Border Patrol reports nearly 200,000 encounters with migrants in July, alone. It was the highest monthly total in more than two decades. This doesn't include the "gotaways," which some estimate are as high as 400,000. According to the Brookings Institute, the number of undocumented immigrants living in the U.S. as of 2019, ranged from 10.5 to 12 million, or about 3.2 percent to 3.6 percent of the population. The numbers have grown considerably since then.

They are not finished coming. Why should they stop when coyotes and other traffickers promise free stuff courtesy of the U.S. taxpayer? Last Saturday morning, as many as 4,000 migrants broke through a clearly ineffective Mexican National Guard roadblock in Tapachula, Mexico. They were on their way to Mexico City. The U.S. was their final destination. I'd like to know who is paying for their transportation, food, and signs written in both Spanish and English for the TV cameras? Some signs praise resident Biden. No longer limited to Latin countries, the latest wave includes Haitians.

We have heard promises by former President 0bama and resident Biden about their pledge to "fundamentally transform America." Is this what they mean? Why don't they tell us what their new America will look like and then put it to voters in the next two elections to see if they agree?

The image of migrants recently flown in the dead of night from Texas to Westchester, New York, and Jacksonville, Florida, does not speak well of the administration's motivation. It reminded me of the Baltimore Colts football team sneaking out of that city for Indianapolis some years ago because they wanted to avoid the bad publicity some apparently thought the move would bring to management. As the Scripture says, "Men love darkness rather than light because their deeds are evil." (John 3:19)

If those tearing down statues, re-writing or spinning history to fit contemporary political goals, and treating parents of children in public schools as the enemy have the ruining of the America most of us love as their objective – even with flaws we have worked hard to fix – they are well on their way to a nefarious victory.

None of this would likely have occurred if the Biden administration were not so spiteful about Donald Trump that it refused to finish the border wall so that we could slow the migrant flow and direct migrants to areas where their asylum claims could be properly assessed.

America is fragile. Its values must be renewed in every generation, or we risk losing them. What is happening at what used to be our southern border is a scandal and a disgrace. Administration officials need to enforce the laws they took an oath to uphold.

The next election cannot come soon enough, but if the flow continues at the current, or a greater pace, it may be too late to reverse the harm being done.

Why would all of these people want to come to a systemic racist country? It makes no sense.

Cal Thomas is one of the signees of the “Against Trump” National Review issue.

He got what he wanted, the destruction of the USA.

This is pure chaos coming to our country. The president is totally remiss in his duty to protect us from invasion, and this is a real invasion force. The GOP is complicit in this disaster with only token verbal opposition. Thousands of unvetted migrants enter every day and huge caravans of mostly young men continue on their inexorable march to our border.

Cloward/Piven is working just fine, and the Great Reset and New World Order is waiting in the wings to make its debut. I can’t believe what is happening to our beloved nation.

Cal Thomas is a restrained man of faith. He is not a hothead. When Cal Thomas is scared and dumbfounded, you know a major corner has been turned.

That magical 11 million number has been used for a decade at least. Reality is probably three times that. 30 million? Add 2 million so far this year, probably 3 million by the end of the year.

Sooner or later, there will be a mostly empty country in Ctrl/South America we can go take over.

Can those who write so well on the subject... can they instead, get people out in the streets and in washington dc to protest what all is going on, unstopped or even tried to stop!

Get this ship turned around before it hits the rocks of communism and seeing our great United States sink into the ocean of global control!

from my home page

___________________________________________________________________

Whenever an illegal alien kills someone in a drunk driving accident or something similar, here’s what I recommend:
What can we do about it? Here’s my standard post.

RICO —Citizen Recourse

Private persons and entities may initiate civil suits to obtain injunctions and treble damages against enterprises that conspire to or actually violate federal alien smuggling, harboring, or document fraud statutes, under the Racketeer-Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO). The pattern of racketeering activity is defined as commission of two or more of the listed crimes. A RICO enterprise can be any individual legal entity, or a group of individuals who are not a legal entity but are associated in fact, and can include nonprofit associations.

Here’s what I’ve been pushing: it’s time to file Racketeering, Influencing, and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) lawsuits.

RICO lawyers could turn it around in a few years and MAKE MONEY at the same time. I’m surprised they haven’t done it already.

In the absence of enforcement, we can get the word out in the meantime that there is money to be made in filing RICO lawsuits against employers who hire illegal aliens like this jerk.

Employers would have no trouble shutting down the border if they could get sued by someone under the RICO statutes for hiring these people in the first place. The next time an illegal alien kills someone in a drunk driving accident or somesuch thing, I’m going to point out that the victim’s family might be able to seek compensation from the employer under these statutes in the hopes that it would catch on. If this did catch on, would see such a swift backlash against illegal immigration that no employer would go near these people and they’ll all simply want to go back home.

Not to worry, once they get here they will have the initiative to start demanding their free stuff, demand that whitey stop their racism against them because whitey has oppressed them.

“30 million?”

We’re well past that number. Try 40-50 million. If they all had uniforms on, we’d look like an occupied country.
