If the threat of being deported or incarcerated does not stem the tide of illegal immigration, perhaps the threat of completely losing one’s children will do the trick.  While this may sound harsh, it is the consequences of illegal acts perpetrated by the illegal immigrant parents.  The enormous problem I have with this article is that it is titled “After Losing Freedom Some Immigrants Face Loss of Custody of Their Children”  These parents never had freedom. Freedom is only given to the just and the law-abiding citizens in this country.  It is not, and should never, be granted to individuals who were merely able to prolong the consequences of their illegal acts long enough to give birth to children in this nation.

tall-dark-handsomeWomen.  Suppose you’re single and met a man who just pulled at your heart strings.  He was tall, dark, handsome, well off and said everything you had ever hoped to hear.  Remember, he’s pulling on your heart strings big time.  If after you start dating, he informs you that he has every intention of never being faithful to you.  Would you continue dating him?  Come on.  The guy actually told you upfront what he was apt to do.  He was honest with you, right?

 

Ok, let’s try another angle.

 

“If I can just successfully commit this crime, then my kids will have a better life.”  Do you think that such an illogical statement has ever come to the mind of a bank robber, or an extortionist, or a blackmailer?  What about another kind of criminal: One that doesn’t have children yet, but knows that if they can bear children within the border of the United States of America, they not only have a better chance of getting away with their crime by preying on the hearts of American citizens, and also survive on the welfare programs of our nation.  Meet this nation’s most expensive criminal—the illegal immigrant.  In fact, bearing children in the U.S. is such a better life for “profitable” illegal immigrants than where they came from, that the majority of illegal immigrant parents live in circumstances of poverty and thus reap extensive benefits of our welfare programs.  

 

Heartstrings will bankrupt us all, folks.

 

Let’s be perfectly blunt here.  Do you really think it’s fair for law-abiding citizens to wait, dot their “I’s”, cross their “T’s” and pay the proper price to become citizens of the U.S. while others simply circumvent “the system,” sneaking in like a thief in the night, only to be rewarded?  Yes, REWARDED.  And we reward them in a big way here in the U.S. due to the faulty interpretation of the 14th Amendment.  

 

14th-amendment1The Fourteenth Amendment, Section 1 reads: All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside (bold and italics added).  Our government officials have interpreted this Amendment to mean that if a child is born in the U.S. then he/she is automatically adopted as a citizen of the U.S.  But are they truly subject to the jurisdiction of the U.S. under such circumstances?  Now, let’s look at this for a moment.  The consequences of this politically motivated interpretation are dire for our nation.

 

More bluntness here.  Please don’t feel sorry for the illegal immigrants who live in poverty.  They do so because their illegal status makes it difficult to obtain jobs in which they can be gainfully employed.  Statistically speaking, many are very gainfully employed–with a house that’s fully paid for, a car that’s paid for, and tens of thousands of dollars in cash on hand at any given moment.  It’s called drug trafficking work, and apparently it pays very well.  Unfortunately, such “workers” regularly show that they have no income.  (Come on, really.  Would you report your illegal income when you see political leaders who don’t even have to report their legal income?)  As such, these individuals still qualify for much federal and state assistance including medical benefits.  

 

I spoke at length with a senior DEA agent this past weekend.  He gave me a very interesting view on the consequences of this situation. 

 

deaAs a DEA agent he is repeatedly arresting illegal immigrants for drug trafficking (and who are usually guilty of many other crimes as a part of this trafficking).   Unfortunately, he stated that the majority of these traffickers have their wives and their U.S. citizen children as a part of the game.  When the parents get arrested, the children inevitably get placed in our foster care system.  Note that since the income of these drug traffickers is illegal, although quite abundant, many of them make use of our welfare programs such as W.I.C, food stamps and other programs in addition to their ill-gotten gains.  Needless to say, the I.R.S. has no record of a drug trafficker paying taxes on their income either.

 

When a U.S. child is disabled in our nation, they are given disability and social security benefits, but such benefits are paid to their legal guardians, legal or not.

 

In addition, a study released Tuesday, April 14, 2009 by Pew Hispanic Center reported that children of immigrants are twice as likely to live in poverty, which means that they are also living off of our nation’s welfare programs, education and healthcare.  While many illegal immigrants were not permitted to receive welfare previously, many states have passed laws allowing them to receive benefits which were originally intended for our nation’s citizens.  Nearly one-third of their children live in poverty which is double the rate of legal U.S. citizen children.

 

Seven percent of the children enrolling in your child’s school are children of an illegal immigrant according to this same study.  And yet illegal immigrants are typically not property owners (due to lending regulations), thus they do not pay taxes to support their children in school.

 

heartstrings-amnesty1There are approximately 5.5 million children of illegal immigrants living in the U.S. presently who are recognized as legal citizens.  As such, the parents of such children are able to literally live on your dime without contributing to society in the form of taxes, community activism, or contributing to the law-abiding culture of our society. 

 

In America, education is the largest public cost of caring for these children due in part to the language barriers necessitating special teachers, paid lunch programs, and larger class sizes.  This price tag is estimated today to be above 13 billion dollars, not counting any special education programs according to Donald Huddle of Rice University.  An additional $2 billion goes towards special care programs in our schools.  This number is expected to actually be quite conservative given that the cost for education of these children in California alone was posted at $3 billion in 1993.  The illegal immigration population has nearly doubled since then.  Health care is at least triple that cost for the nation both public and private costs combined.  (For more information, click here)

 

Think of the impression that such parents may have on their children.  They begin their relationship with our nation by defying our laws and are financially rewarded for it.  Hmmmm.  I wonder what message this sends to their children?  Go ahead.  You take a guess.  Are they naturally inclined to obey the laws of our nation or defy them?  

 

Earlier this year, the Department of Homeland Security reported that over 100,000 parents of “legal” U.S. children were deported in 2007, thus prompting them to make alternative considerations prior to deportments.  In other words, the fact that they got away with a crime, but were able to procreate may be reason enough to reward them with amnesty in our nation.  I truly believe that by our government even entertaining the proposal to allow such parents to stay here, they are simply reinforcing criminal acts.  Once you get away with one crime, why not another, and another?

 

How do these children grow up and vote?  Do they vote for the best candidate who promotes honor and virtue?  Or do they vote for the person who’s most likely to keep their parents in the country?  

 

Did you know you’ll now have to work until May 29 of each year JUST to pay your taxes?  You presently pay more in taxes than you spend in housing, food and clothing for your family!  While I’m not one to believe in scarcity, the fact of the matter is our nation is in serious peril.  Contrary to what the Federal Reserve and Congress believe, there is a FINITE amount of money that this nation has at present and that finite amount is in the largest negative balance than ever before.   Millions of legitimate Americans are suffering financially with no “bail out” in the form of food stamps, health benefits, W.I.C. in-state tuition prices, preferential and even mandatory admittance into colleges or FREE education.  Heart strings or not, the crimes of these parents must not be rewarded socially, emotionally, or financially.

Even if we accept the current interpretation of the Fourteenth Amendment, let’s ask ourselves this question.  Was such a law intended to affect the U.S.-born children of a few thousand, or even tens or hundreds of thousands of immigrants who made the difficult journey and entered our country through Ellis Island or other authorized ports of entry?  If our forefathers had known that 1 million to 3 million illegal immigrants (solely from one country) would attempt to illegally enter our country every year, would they have desired to generously grant birthright citizenship to the children of these same immigrants who flagrantly violate our laws?  Will you be as generous at the cost of the well being of your own family?  It becomes even more painful when we realize that countless illegal immigrants intentionally give birth to “anchor babies” for the specific intent of later legalizing their immigration status.

Not that I give merit to the legal actions of other countries as a basis for our behavior, but it’s interesting to note that in November 2004, Denmark rescinded automatic citizenship due to the unforeseen financial crisis it placed upon their country.  Ireland did so a year prior to that.  Most of Europe was being overrun with immigrants from North Africa and the Middle East and thus are considering the same measures at present.

Bottom line, we literally cannot afford to grant legality in the midst of illegality.   It makes for a horrible relationship.

Perhaps our citizens are waiting for the news to flash a headline that we’ve been invaded by a terrorist group and their location is X and their numbers are X and they are armed with X and their intent is X. Unfortunately, as a result of many only willing to recognize such an act as a genuine threat on our freedoms, many will not act in spite of a very real, more subtle, strategic and deadly war brought within our borders.

There are over eight thousand Americans being killed every year by this infiltration.

I believe that some serious education is necessary for American citizens so that they can rationally and logically see this situation for what it is.

illegal-immigrants3For the record, I wholeheartedly embrace any foreign immigrants who come to our nation—legally. I love their input and talents which are so different from the norm. However, tolerance for illegal acts by illegal immigrants is costing our nation everything we hold dear. Consequently, I have no tolerance for the initial and subsequent illegal acts that stem from the vast amount of illegal aliens. Why? Because when they come here illegally, an enormous domino effect occurs which drastically compromises the freedoms and liberties which so many have paid for financially and with their lives.

Here are the facts:
– Illegal aliens have already proven themselves to be unprofitable citizens to our nation as they begin the relationship with the U.S. on a note deception ie: breaking the law to enter our country. Based on conservative studies, over 60% of all violent crimes are committed by illegal immigrants. SIXTY PERCENT! Imagine 60% less rape, murder, assault crimes happening if illegal immigrants were unable to enter this country. Does that chip away at your freedom?

– Many illegal aliens, including terrorists, use the fairness of our justice system to abuse U.S. citizens. Case in point, illegal aliens have successfully sued a rancher in Arizona for “abuse” because he caught them and held them at gun point for illegally crossing the border onto his land.

In addition to that, the property of Casey Nethercott now belongs to illegal aliens. It was SEIZED by the U.S. Government and given to two illegal immigrants from El Salvador and Mr. Nethercott is in JAIL! See this site for additional information: http://www.debbieschlussel.com/archives/2009/02/illegal_alien_l.html
The freedom of American citizens is now being compromised as a result of the dollar signs that legal activists groups seek to gain is using our court system to assist illegal immigrants.

– Illegal aliens are now costing the state of California over $9 billion a year to care for. They continue to cost other key states billions of dollars per year as well. Do you think that your tax costs go up and up simply because of inflation? Think again. They go up because of our non-existence borders and unenforced laws. Do you have a say about how your tax dollars are spent and when they increase and by how much? No. How’s that for freedom and liberty from tyrants?

illegal-drugs2– Over 90% of all illegal drugs are brought into this nation by illegal immigrants! 90%!!!

– Legal immigrants are screened for contagious diseases. Illegal immigrants obviously are not. In spite of many plagues having been eradicated since the 1940’s and 1950’s malaria, dengue, leprosy, hepatitis A-E, chagas disease, and a deadly multi-drug resistance form of tuberculosis cases have been discovered in record numbers in CA, AZ, TX, FL, and NJ and NY! In fact, the majority of these diseases are being found present in illegal aliens. (see more information at http://www.usillegalaliens.com/impacts_of_illegal_immigration_diseases.html)
Not only do these diseases cost lives, but they also increase our health spending in the U.S. to treat those who come in contact with the disease, the cost of uninsured, and the cost to properly staff health practitioners in order to properly take on this infiltration pandemic. It is an absolute MYTH to say that the illegal immigrants take on jobs that American Citizens do not. The jobs are not the problem. The pay is the problem. And why is the pay so low? Because there are so many willing illegal immigrants willing to work for it. It’s a manifestation of supply and demand. So don’t blame this on the American work ethic. Assign appropriate blame and encouragement of terrorism to the companies that willingly engage in such activities. Does this affect the freedom of American Citizens and their right to pursue life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness? Absolutely.

– Over $155 billion a year is spent on the care, (there are well over 11 million uninsured illegal aliens in our nation) education, safety, public services, such as libraries, etc.) and welfare of illegal immigrants or their family members here in the U.S. Over $45 billion a year is NOT in circulation in the U.S. because it is sent to the homelands of the illegal immigrants. And finally, it is estimated that over $2 billion in tax dollars are not collected due to cash paid day laborers and other tax avoidance issues practiced by illegal immigrants and their aids.

deportation2– The fact that illegal migrant families may be split up due to deportation is not a reason NOT to enforce the law. If my father had robbed a bank and then used that money to support and sustain me, is that reason enough not to deport him? NO. Just because he’s my father? NO. And yet we hear this excuse repeatedly as reasons why less deportation is utilized against illegals.

– California is just one example, but it recently announced that it was going to release as many as 57,000 prisoners over the next 3 years. How many of the CA inmates do you think are illegal immigrants? Overcrowding in prisons is a problem in every single one of our states. Your tax dollars pay for the incarcerations of prisoners. And now California is setting the precedence that your neighborhoods will now be less safe because illegal immigrants are overcrowding the prisons! Let’s be mindful as well that some of those who will be released are indeed illegal immigrants. So now we have them scorning our laws in the first place, being found guilty of scorning them yet again, and now we’re not going to deport them. We’re going to let them go freely.

overcrowded-schools1Our schools are overcrowded, not only with illegal immigrants themselves, but also with children of illegal immigrants. As a result the education of your children is being compromised. States are not able to pay teachers what they are worth because they instead struggle with the overcrowding problems, costs of free school lunches, having to accommodate the language pediment which may be a impediment, etc.

– We are not being “un-Christian” in deporting these citizens. The scriptures are replete with examples of consequences which will always follow actions of error. And the scriptures likewise promise dire consequences to us if we fritter away this wonderful land we’ve been given as a result of ignoring the value of the freedoms we have. How can we show we value our freedoms if we’re willing to let others trample on them so abundantly?

war-in-iraq1Finally, we are losing too many lives to the lawlessness of illegal aliens. We went to war because 2,998 people were killed in the 9/11 attacks. As a result we’ve lost over 4,000 soldiers in our war on Iraq. And yet there are 12 U.S. Citizens dying every day at the hands of an illegal alien! That’s over 4,300 murders EVERY YEAR (no other violent crimes) and fruitful lives of our citizens are lost every day as a result of the blind eye we have towards enforcing illegal immigration! 13 people are killed every day at the hand of illegal alien drivers. That’s over 4,700 American killed EVERY YEAR. Yet no war has been declared against this terrorist act! 8 American children are victims of sexual crimes committed by illegal immigrants EVERY DAY! That’s over 2,900 annually! Of the illegal aliens that have been the subject of incarceration studies it was discovered that illegal immigrants who were in jail had been arrested an average of EIGHT TIMES with an average of THIRTEEN offenses each!

It’s one thing to look at this problem in on small portion at a time. But when you see the big picture, perhaps you can better realize just how serious of a problem it is. Let’s open our borders widely to legal, contributing citizens. The cost otherwise is just too great!

veterans-day1Please, please, please take this seriously. Please have your voice heard by your public officials at all levels. We don’t need to resort to a Boston Tea Party kind of act or violence of any kind. We simply need to pummel the lawmakers with what’s on our minds in this regard. They truly think we are apathetic, that we aren’t paying attention or that we won’t ever notice or organize ourselves to make a difference.

No, I’m not going to give you some kind of a electronic petition to sign and to forward on. You’ve got to take this country back with your own heart and mind. Blood has been spilt for the freedoms we still enjoy. Taking some time to communicate sincere thoughts is the least we can do in their honor and in honor of our generations to come. This is too great of a country for us to just give away in this manner.
