While you hear border jumpers’ numbers falling since President Donald Trump took office, America still houses anywhere from 15 to 20 million illegal aliens. They jump over the borders or they overstay their visas to melt into the big cities where they find enclaves in their own ethnic groups.
According to Dr. Steve Camarota, at the Center for Immigration Studies (http://www.cis.org/), 500,000 illegal aliens continue invading America’s borders annually.
Once they arrive, very few face ICE officers because internal enforcement remains lax to non-existent.
Why do they keep invading? Simple: our U.S. Congress refuses to pass laws that would deter foreigners from invading America for jobs or birthing their “anchor babies.”
Each year, an estimated 350,000 pregnant women enter with their soon to be newborns to birth them on U.S. soil. They gain instant citizenship for the child and ‘anchor’ themselves to our welfare system for the rest of their lives. The child receives housing, with mother in tow, food stamps, medical care, living expenses and schooling, K-12.
House member Steve King (R-Iowa) presented HR 1968 10 years ago to stop the practice of misinterpreting the 14th Amendment meant for children of slaves back in 1865 to gain citizenship. Instead, the bill languishes in committee because democrats refuse to pass it. Therefore, Americans pay billions in taxes annually to pay for those anchor babies. It’s beyond comprehension why our own elected representatives cheat, lie and betray American taxpayers without pause.
Next, foreigners continue invading America because of powerful lobbying interests paid for by huge corporations to keep the ‘cheap labor’ market, i.e., 21st century slave labor, flowing into America. Those corporations go by the names of Marriott, McDonald’s, Hormel Foods, Tyson Chicken, Hotel-Restaurant chains of every description, roofing companies, AARP even supports endless immigration along with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. They continue making big bucks while you pay the freight for food stamps, babies, medical care, schooling and expenses.
Those employers rig phony identification, Social Security cards, tax IDs and other subterfuge. They pay cash under the table while you pay in taxes for non-citizen welfare.
Note that the simplest method to stop endless illegal immigration remains a mandatory: E-Verify Bill. It would force employers to check legal status of every employee to be a U.S. citizen or immigrant with working papers—or that employer faces prosecution. If illegals can’t work jobs, they can’t support themselves. Ironically, laws on the books cost illegal alien employers $2,000.00 per each illegal hired and up to five years in prison.
But, of course, the federal government, even under Trump, refuses to enforce the laws on the books.
Note that former House Speaker John Boehner never allowed E-Verify to escape committee to be voted upon. Same with Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell! Only one explanation glares out at you: corruption and payoffs by lobbyists from major corporations keep that bill smothered in committee.
Take a look at the two senators and House member of your state. They cheat you daily out of tax dollars, educational dollars, medical care dollars, food stamp dollars and much more because they won’t do squat to pass or enforce laws to stop the invasion of America via all categories of immigration.
Doesn’t it make sense to you, as an American citizen, that if you see something wrong, or you see something that needs to be fixed or changed—that you change it, fix it or replace it?
That’s the problem: most Americans continue voting in the same culprits into Congress that screwed them whether this year or 40 years ago like Senator John McCain, Charles Schumer, Diane Feinstein, Barbara Boxer, Jeff Flake, Corey Gardner, Michael Bennet and virtually the entire majority of Congress.
They sit in their Congressional seats, do nothing to fix our problems, but we keep voting them into office, so they can keep sitting on their duffs, doing nothing for us—but in fact, harm our communities, steal our taxes and fund wars without end—that cost us trillions and trillions to build other nations while ours free-falls into $20 trillion in debts. Don’t get me started on our rotting infrastructure!
Please voters, we need term limits for everyone in public office. We need fresh, new minds and energies. No one may serve more than 10 years. That keeps fresh minds, ideas, and results moving onto the American landscape. Otherwise, we continue to rot, degrade and decay across our country.
How easy would it be to pass E-Verify? Stop anchor babies? Stop drugs from crossing our borders? Stop endless wars? Stop adding to the $20 trillion debt? Answer: very easy when you vote action leaders into Congress who do something rather than fatten their wallets at our expense.
