Illegals incarcerated at rates far higher than legal residents

If we are to truly address and fix the problem of illegal immigration we need to change the laws.  It is not compassionate, or “the right thing to do”, or any crap like that to give those entering our country illegally and committing violent crimes against our citizens the same due process as anybody else.  Try explaining to the father whose daughter was raped 3 times by an illegal why he’s only being held on a $100,000 bond.  If past experiences are any indicator, it would not be altogether surprising if he were released.

There is a particularly disturbing lie that is constantly thrown around that immigrants commit crimes at a smaller rate than legal residents.  As if that were any reason to let anyone else in.  Newsflash: the aggregate of crimes is what is important, not the rate.  Even so, I posted about this last year debunking this myth.  New data from earlier this month shows that illegal aliens commit crimes up to five times the rate of legal residents.

(February 5, 2019, Washington, D.C.) — Illegal aliens are incarcerated as much as five times the rate of legal residents – and on average three times the rate of legal residents – in states where they are most heavily concentrated, according to a new study published by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR).

The study analyzes the most recent illegal alien incarceration data available from the federal government’s State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP), which reimburses states for a small portion of the costs of incarcerating criminal illegal aliens. The report looks at SCAAP payments to states with large illegal alien populations and compares it to the public records of state and local prisons. The states analyzed include: Arizona, California, Florida, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Texas and Washington which, together, comprise the majority – 65 percent – of the nation’s illegal alien population. Importantly, the report does not include illegal aliens who have been convicted of federal criminal charges and are serving time in a Federal Bureau of Prison facility.

“This study should put to rest, once and for all, the notion that illegal aliens commit crimes at a lower rate than legal residents,” said FAIR President Dan Stein. “By focusing on states with significant illegal alien populations and that consistently report to the SCAAP program, FAIR’s study refutes this erroneous claim,” he said. “Contrary to the popular myth, this analysis shows that when applied nationally, SCAAP data from key states suggest that illegal aliens are incarcerated at three times the rate of legal residents, on average.”

You can read the full report in the link.  The problem of illegal immigration could be stopped very quickly if we really, truly, wanted to stop the problem once and for all.  One, a border wall.  Two, shoot to kill at the border anyone crossing illegally.  Three, accelerated trials for illegals.  If they are proven to be in the country illegally, then they should be deported immediately for minor offenses and punished swiftly and harshly for violent crimes like rape and murder.  I would probably prefer the death penalty over life imprisonment.

It is very simple.  If you come into this country illegally, and commit violent crimes against legal residents, you will be punished severely.  Plain and simple.  How many people do you think would need to be punished before people got the message and stopped abusing our laughable laws?  It would not be surprising at all to see illegals self-deport once the program got underway.  American citizens deserve better than what they currently receive.  The fact that we essentially shelter these monsters is horrific.

DACA extension for wall offer

Well, it looks like the Axios report regarding the offer President Trump was going to make at his presser today was correct.  Essentially he offered a three year DACA extension for the $5.7 billion.  Whatever happened to negotiating for $25 billion?  Or building a wall across the entire border, not just certain areas?  Why are we negotiating at all for people who are here illegally anyways?  Are we really so stupid to think that rewarding lawlessness will lead to anything other than encouragement of more lawlessness?

President Trump deserves the benefit of the doubt, for now.  This all could be part of a bigger play.  He may know they won’t take it and he will then have the upper hand over more people in the court of public opinion.  God I hope this is the play.

The more one hears though the more one thinks the country is probably already doomed.  Yes, stopping illegal immigration is a top priority.  But even legal immigration needs a complete makeover.  If we continue to allow any and all people in even legally the demographic complexion of the country will change to something unrecognizable.  We’re already going that way.  I have nothing against Hispanics, or Africans, or anyone else, but I also don’t want to live in a country that’s predominantly Hispanic.  I just don’t.  But that’s the trajectory we are on.  Birth rates and legal and illegal immigration trends point that way.  Do you want to live in a new version of Mexico?  Is it really so racist to bring this up?  To want to live in a country going forward with the same demographic makeup as we had when we were younger?  Would we shame an African for saying he didn’t want to live amongst white people if his country were all of a sudden majority white in his homeland?

It’s probably already too late.  President Trump, for all the good he has done, hasn’t gone far enough and won’t go far enough.  He’s a civic nationalist.  And his ideas, while idealistic, are a bit naive.  Unless legal immigration is brought to a trickle or halted altogether America as we know it will have exactly zero shot of surviving in its current form.  And the result of increased diversity and multiculturalism will inevitably lead to war.  It always does.

If the story doesn’t fit the narrative…bury it

CNN requested a local perspective in San Diego regarding the border.  Of course, when the reporter reported that the barrier actually has been working…they no longer wanted the report:

We believe CNN declined a report from KUSI because we informed them that most Border Patrol Agents we have spoken to told us the barrier does in fact work.

We have continuously been told by Border Patrol Agents that the barrier along the Southern border helps prevent illegal entries, drugs, and weapons from entering the United States, and the numbers prove it.

Meanwhile, California has spent $5 billion on a bullet train that isn’t anywhere near completed.  I wonder what one could buy with roughly $5 billion right about now…

A Race to the Bottom

As the Government shutdown continues to drag on one thing seems apparent: those opposing the wall are hoping their constituents aren’t paying attention or just don’t care.  Consider a few of the facts presented by President Trump in a letter President Trump sent to Congress earlier this month:

  • In fiscal year (FY) 2018, 17,000 adults at the border with existing criminal records were arrested by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and border agents.
  • In FY2017 and FY2018, ICE officers arrested approximately 235,000 aliens on various criminal charges or convictions within the interior of the United States—including roughly 100,000 for assault, 30,000 for sex crimes, and 4,000 for homicides.
  • We are now averaging 60,000 illegal and inadmissible aliens a month on our Southern Border.
  • Last month alone, more than 20,000 minors were smuggled into the United States.
  • The immigration court backlog is nearly 800,000 cases.
  • There has been a 2,000 percent increase in asylum claims over the last five years, with the largest growth coming from Central America—while around 9 in 10 claims from Central American migrants are ultimately rejected by the immigration courts, the applicant has long since been released into the interior of the United States.
  • In FY2017, roughly 135,000 illegal and inadmissible family units arrived from Central America. Of those, less than 2 percent have been successfully removed from the country due to a shortage of resources and glaring loopholes in our federal laws.
  • So far in FY2019, we have seen a 280 percent increase in family units from FY2018.
  • 300 Americans are killed every week from heroin—90 percent of which floods across our Southern Border.
  • Illegal immigration is a humanitarian crisis: 1 in 3 migrant women is sexually assaulted on the journey northward to the U.S. border; 50 illegal migrants a day are referred for emergency medical care; and CBP rescues 4,300 people a year who are in danger and distress.

That is an airtight case that there is a problem at the border and that a wall is one of many things that needs to be done to help curb the problem.  Then consider that through restructuring NAFTA we are saving billions of dollars (Mexico indirectly paying), or consider the staggering amounts of wasteful government spending that occurs on a daily basis.  Or how about the amount of money we spend on foreign wars that we shouldn’t even be a part of?  Or this; Rand Paul recently tweeted that we give foreign aid to China and borrow money from them to pay them back…

The point being that we waste so much money on so much crap that even if the wall was a complete waste of money, $5.7 billion dollars is less than a drop in the bucket compared to the amount we spend each year and why not give it a shot to see if it does anything?

It gets even worse.  Chuck and Nancy, the two-headed monster that is the mouthpiece of the opposition party, voted for fencing several times, as did then Senators Obama and Clinton.  We even had the money earmarked for it and the fence was simply never built.  So we’re supposed to take Chuck and Nancy on their word that it’s immoral and just bad for *reasons* while they previously voted for it in the past?  And for the cherry on top, why is it okay that we fund a wall in Jordan but cannot do the same for ourselves?  Why is it okay for Israel to have a wall but not for ourselves?  Did you know Chuck Schumer, as well as many other members of Congress have dual citizenship and are Israeli citizens as well?  Why is it okay for them to defend their borders, Chuck, but we aren’t?

It is clear they do not care about Americans and in fact think so little of us that they think we’re stupid enough to listen to them deride the wall without noticing their past track record or their current stances in general.  It is downright insulting and shows the absolute disdain with which they view the American public.

Which leads to the thrust of the idea.  I really believe these people are hoping that they can dumb down the American public faster than they think we can catch onto their lies.  Watch a news broadcast from even 15 years ago compared to today.  You may once in a while actually find a spirited debate where opposing views are actually debated at the same time and both viewpoints being heard.  Take a look at this video of Jared Taylor talking with Donahue about race in America.  This conversation would NEVER occur today.  They would NEVER want you to hear the facts or hear the viewpoint that Jared brings to the table.  No.  Now segments are one-sided and they are so short nothing of substance is ever said before another commercial break or topic change takes place.  The “opponent” in today’s segments are usually controlled opposition (read: approved).  Sometimes someone like Tucker will get someone on where there is genuine pushback but the segments are so short that neither side can really have the time to get their point across and it often ends in a screaming match that Tucker needs to end because they aren’t getting anywhere.

This isn’t a coincidence.  The mainstream media is dumbing down the American public.  They are removing the critical thinking skills that we all once had in much greater abundance.  Couple that with distracting smart phones, shorter video clips, more commercials, and less people reading, and you get a genuinely dumbed down public.  IQ scores are falling worldwide.  Mainstream media will want you to believe that is due to climate change…but it is more likely due to the reasons stated in the Unz article.  Either way, the fact is they really are falling.  People really are getting dumber.  You are not just imagining it.  And Americans are reading less and less every year which cannot help critical thinking skills or holding attention spans.

All of this adds up to people like Chuck and Nancy thinking they can somehow justify their current position on the wall and not think anyone will notice how patently absurd it is.  Or worse, maybe they do know and just don’t think anyone will care.  Entertainment has been the opiate of the masses.  So long as people are comfortable and distracted many simply will not care about a wall or the hypocrisies of these people.  I fear a majority of the population will be in for a rude awakening when civilization as we know it begins to break down because we never addressed these problems and let them fester and metastasize to the point that they become uncontrollable.  Perhaps we have already passed the point of no return.  The trend certainly seems to be pointing that way.  But maybe it has not.  And I’m thankful we have a President who is standing his ground and genuinely fighting to reverse this trend.

Do Not Give An Inch

President Trump has been on a tear the past few days lambasting the Democrats about the wall.  A small snippet of his tweet storm:

This is a winning issue and thank God President Trump isn’t backing down from the wall funding.  This is only going to make the Democrats look worse, especially when he puts it into perspective the money that we’re giving other countries in aid or the money we SPEND to protect other countries.

It will get more interesting the longer this shutdown drags out.  Food stamp money will run out at the end of January which really could go either way.  The MSM peddling their lies and putting the shutdown on Trump won’t look good for him.  But Trump has an entire month of nonstop tweeting he can do to get his message out and rightly pin this on the Democrats.  Remember, a bill passed through the House to fund $5.7B towards the wall.  There is a majority of the Senate who would approve it.  If only Chuck Schumer would allow it they would be able to get the votes to push the funding through.

President Trump needs to stand firm at this point until the Democrats cave or unless he has another trick up his sleeve to fund the wall a different way.  He shouldn’t worry about the optics.  Caving now or in the near future will only make him look bad on both sides.  His supporters desperately want the wall.  They will not falter.  The left hates him already anyways so there’s really nothing to lose by continuing to hold out.  And when more and more on the left realize that it’s such a paltry amount of money compared to the money we waste on a daily basis it will only make their leaders look that much worse as they remain petulant children and prevent the funding from going through.  Especially when President Trump continues to hammer home the point that Obama, Hillary, Chuck, Nancy, and many others all voted for fence/wall funding in the not so distant past.

In 2018 we only saw the degradation of the law and of principles in general.  How many politicians were shown and proven with evidence to have lied or broken the law and had nothing happen?  How many citizens of a preferred race, religion, or gender have gotten away with breaking the law because they are part of a privileged class that is given a free pass?  The more the fabric of our society frays with inaction and no punishment when punishment is due the worse things will get.  People will no longer respect the rule of law, and nobody wants to go down that road.  Things will get ugly quickly.

President Trump is right to hold out for the wall funding on principle alone.  The fact that it is entirely justified and desperately needed only strengthens his position.  It says all you need to know about our ersatz “leaders” when they berate President Trump for pulling out of an illegal war that cost us billions of dollars but will lambast him incessantly for wanting to spend a small sum to protect our own borders.  Their allegiances do not lie with the United States of America.  Never forget that.

California looking to blacklist companies working on border wall

Don’t the Democrats like to preach that they are the party of tolerance and inclusion?  Of course we know this is a lie.  They’re tolerant so long as you agree with exactly everything they say.  Toe the party line or suffer the consequences.  Via The Washington Free Beacon:

As President Donald Trump renews his battle with Congress to fund his multi-billion-dollar border wall with Mexico, Democratic lawmakers and liberal groups in California have stepped up their campaigns to blacklist businesses involved in building the border wall.

San Diego is the latest city poised to join the list of California municipalities demonstrating their opposition to Trump’s promised border wall by punishing businesses involved in working or even bidding on the wall prototypes or other border-wall projects.

The majority Democratic San Diego City Council, in a 3 to 1 vote last week, directed city officials to draft an ordinance requiring contractors competing for city projects to disclose any past and present work, as well as planned bids, on parts of Trump’s planned border wall.

“Trump’s border wall does nothing to promote San Diego’s robust economy and our positive international ties with Mexico,” Council President Pro Tem Barbara Bry, a Democrat, said in a statement. “Our region is stronger because of our cross-border exchange with our neighbors to the south.”

I’m all for freedom of choice for consumers to choose who they support and buy products from.  But this is not that.  As the left pushes further to the extreme left and outright Communism, they will continue to ramp up government intervention and control.  Centralized planning is a core tenet of Communism.  And again none of their policies respect a diversity of opinions.  If you do not agree with them they will black ball you and try and ruin your life.  Is it really fair to the construction workers of these countries who are trying to put food on their tables for their families to suffer because the feral left want to take their toys and walk away?  How tolerant!

Nearly 100 out of the estimated 600 companies who have competed for border-wall contracts so far are reportedly based in California, and 10 percent of those firms are Hispanic-owned, according to the Guardian.

I think it’s funny how much they’re willing to hurt their fellow Californians in this blatant attempt to railroad and delay essential infrastructure for border security.  Remember also how much we’re told how racist the wall is.  Sorry, but many legal Hispanics also agree with better border security and lower levels of even legal immigration.  You cannot have a country if you have porous borders that allow in drugs, human trafficking, and a multitude of future welfare recipients on the public dole with zero skin in the game.  As much as Ms Bry wants to obfuscate the truth about our relationship with Mexico, it is possible to control your border and still maintain friendly relations.
