We are all immigrants

January 23, 2019

I don’t know if you are as concerned as I am, but when 2,000 to 7,000 men, women and children make it known that they are coming to the USA illegally, I am very concerned.

I was always told that fences make good neighbors and I support a fence on our southern border, especially in places where there have been thousands of illegals crossing. I have heard every reason from it is immoral, to we cannot separate children from parents, etc. We were shown pictures of children in cages and later found out they were from the Obama days.

Did you know that $11 billion to $22 billion is spend on welfare to illegals annually, that $22 billion on food assistance, $2.5 billion on Medicaid for illegals annually, $12 billion on primary and secondary school for illegals annually who do not speak English, $17 billion for educating anchor babies annually, $3 million a day is spent to incarcerate illegals, 30 percent of all federal prison inmates are illegals? Ninety billion dollars is spent on welfare and social services annually, $200 billion annually in suppressed wages for legal Americans. In 2006 illegals sent home $45 billion to their country of origin. Illegal immigration costs $228.3 billion a year. That’s a lot more than $5 billion to extend the wall or build a fence in critical areas. We are not asking for a wall/fence on the entire border as that is not possible and actually not necessary in certain areas.

Do we want to stop immigration? Of course not if it is legal. We have to have responsible immigration and immigration law. Both parties must come together and pass immigration laws that complement America, and do away with laws that make it almost impossible to deport anyone who steps on our soil or comes here only to have a baby who becomes an American child, etc.

The news as reported by ABC, CBS, NBC, and CNN is completely negative and does not answer true reporting to American and the world.

The Democratic leadership is a failure in coming to grips with a plan that will lead to legal immigration. When I read and listen to our Democratic leaders I cannot believe that they do not have an agenda to support legal immigration. Stop fighting, accept your president. Stop fake news, unite together for the good of all Americans.

God bless America.
