It just really gets to me when people decide to pile on the law enforcement officers, federal agents, and military personnel that enforce the laws and execute the missions given to them by others.
If you have a problem with immigration law, the fault doesn’t lie with individual ICE, CPB, TSA, or USCG personnel. It doesn’t even lie with the President. It lies with Congress
Current figures on illegal immigration is that 60-80% of women crossing get raped.
Other information is that coyotes are offering money for children in Mexico so they can pretend to be a "family unit"
Another figure is that border patrol is catching 100,000 illegal immigrants a month.
People die in the desert crossing, especially children.
An illegal immigrant costs money, even if it is just for food, infrastructure to care for these people while detained. Imagine that there are 1 million illegal immigrants every year. Simple maths says that is $3,560,000,000 every year that is NOT going to education, job creation, healthcare, reducing crime or homelessness, etc etc for AMERICANS.
Giving free healthcare to illegal immigrants will just increase that amount. Not to mention that there are already Americans struggling to get healthcare.
Incentivising illegal border crossings is increasing the number of women who get raped BY THE THOUSANDS and increasing the numbers of dead children. I also assume that these women were raped by the men crossing the border with them so it seems likely that more illegal immigrants means more rapists. Why is no-one talking about this rape culture?
Trump asked congress for money and talked about it for years and they denied the problem existed despite every president for the last 16 years saying it was a problem!
America does not need a new immigration policy. It has a very good one that is generous and accepts over a million asylum seekers a year. Each state needs to support the enforcement of it. However it does need to remind other nations that Asylum means the first country a refugee passes through, not the best.
Illegal immigration drives wages down, especially for low skilled labour and drives the cost of housing up as it becomes harder to find. It HAS been shown to increase crime.
Simple maths says for every 1000 people some are going to be criminals. If you change that number to 100, 000 that number is going to be 100x larger. That number is going to be higher in illegal immigrants than the general population because they are people who are already willing to perform an illegal act!
Tl:dr illegal immigration is bad for everyone, especially women and children.
These figures are what I have gleaned from various media sources so may not be completely accurate. Even if you divide all the numbers by 10, a 100,000 illegal immigrants is too many, 6-8% of all women crossing get raped is too much, and any number of people, especially children, dying on the crossing is too many.
