The US Already Has Been Invaded [by illegal, criminal aliens]
www.CNSNEWS.com ^ | June 03, 2003 | Alan Caruba

Posted on 06/06/2003 9:17:15 AM PDT by twas

In February, a newspaper article caught my eye. "Illegal immigrant population doubled in NJ during '90s." Doubled! In the most densely populated state in the nation, the number of illegal immigrants had gone from 95,000 to 221,000 between 1990 and 2000. The Immigration and Naturalization Service provided the statistics. The INS noted that, during the same decade, the numbers nationwide went from 2.5 million to 7 million illegal immigrants.

While the Department of Homeland Defense is busy raising and lowering the threat levels to and from yellow to orange and back again, the reality of life in America is that we have seven million illegal immigrants, 69% of whom are Mexicans. Behind them, the flow of others entering illegally come from El Salvador, Guatemala, Colombia, Honduras, Ecuador and China.

The INS and the 2000 Census estimate that, every year, 350,000 illegal immigrants enter the United States. California alone has more the 2.2 million, about 32 percent of the total, residing there. Texas has over a million.

Each and every one of them is breaking the law and should be deported. Instead, countless other laws offer them protection. If caught, most do not show up in court and most cannot be found. In the decade between 1990 and 2000, 200,000 illegal immigrants were given legal status.

I suggest that what this nation needs are jobs for our native-born Americans and the eight million legal immigrant population. What we don't need are seven million illegal immigrants who all need schooling for their children, hospitalization for illness or injuries, and a variety of social services that include welfare, plus the criminal element among them who put demands on law enforcement authorities. All of this is paid for by American taxpayers.

Every single day, the United States of America is invaded along its border to the north with Canada and its border to the south with Mexico. For those using the immigration system, until 9-11, anyone could declare themself a tourist, arrive, and disappear into the nation. In 2002, the National Security Entry-Exist Registration System (NSEERS), activated in 2001, had stopped 330 known foreign criminals and three known terrorists at various official ports of entry.

In January, however, Sen. Teddy Kennedy (D-MA) slipped a provision into the Senate's omnibus appropriations bill that would have cut off funding to the system. Michelle Malkin, an expert on immigration issues, noted that "not a single illegal alien has actually been kicked out yet as the result of being caught through NSEERS."

It need hardly be stated that allowing criminals and/or terrorists into the US is a very bad idea. In reality, as of December 2001, more than 314,000 illegal aliens at large in the nation were under orders to be deported. Finding them is the problem. Last year, the INS managed to find and remove 70,000 criminal aliens. In the first six months of this year, 36,000 have been deported. That's a lot of criminals.

How many of the illegal aliens are terrorists is anyone's guess. Under the new Homeland Security Department, immigration enforcement functions have been separated from immigration service functions. At this point, hoping the INS is going to get the job done is a fool's dream.

This nation is not effectively patrolling its borders. Last month 19 illegal immigrants died. They had been packed into a truck with dozens of others. One of them was only five years old. Trucks coming in from Mexico yesterday, today, and tomorrow, hold more illegal immigrants. They are pouring across our southern border.

And here's the really bad news: They call our Southwestern States of California, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, Nevada, and Texas "Aztlan." This is the territory ceded to the US by Mexico as part of the Treaty of Guadeloupe Hidalgo in 1849. They want it back.

Mexico has launched an effort to reclaim these states and to lay siege to the rest of the nation by encouraging as many Mexicans as possible to come here either legally or illegally; mostly the latter. Mexicans, according to the US Census Bureau, are now the largest minority group in the US, numbering at least 37 million.

So, we not only have a national security issue involving Islamic terrorists, we have an entire nation to the south of us bent on taking over the US by sheer force of numbers.

To the north, Canada's immigration laws are a bad joke, admitting virtually anyone for any reason. It's just a drive across a bridge or down a highway to get here.

America is a point of destination for every illegal immigrant who believes, with good reason, that if they can get in, they will ultimately be granted amnesty and, if they are caught, they can easily move to avoid deportation. They are right.

The United States has to shut its borders for a while. It should consider stationing troops along our southern border to deter a massive invasion. We have troops in Afghanistan, in Iraq, in Kuwait, and for over fifty years we've had them in Europe and South Korea. We need them here! In his State of the Union speech, President Bush devoted exactly eleven words to this problem, saying, "We have intensified security at the borders and ports of entry."

President Ronald Reagan said, "A nation that cannot control its borders is not a nation." By that definition, the US, right now, is not a nation. We need to put the breaks on a massive invasion and, if it continues, there will be so many illegal "citizens" the map of the United States may be re-drawn because we weren't paying attention.

I have to wonder about all the people who claim that immigration is driving our economy.

If unrestricted immigration fueled the '90's as the pro-illegal alien supporters tell us, with every increasing numbers of criminal aliens, shouldn't the economy expand forever?

Clearly, there are other factors that contribute to a strong economy and immigration advocates can not make the claim that unrestricted immigration fuels growth while ignoring a slowing economy. Every day there are more criminal aliens in this country and the economy is not recovering.

Wasn't the election of Fox supposed to revitalize Mexico both socially and economically?

The problem is not our border, per say. The problem lies in the countries whose social and economic problems can only be solved by forcing their surplus population into the United States.

Until Mexico and Latin Amrican nations clean up their acts, (such as stopping their belief in socialist utopias), the torrent will inundate us.

Have a similar solution - dig a moat, build fence in middle of moat, fill moat with water, electrify fence.

The blase', cavalier attitude toward the seive-like borders (Canada's, too) taken by both parties is a recipe for disaster. Makes me heartsick - NOTHING IS BEING DONE!! Doesn't anyone out there realize that if illegals from Mexico can slip across the border so can terrorists. I don't know how much longer this can go on without something frightening happening.

They know all about it. It's just that cheap labor trumps the rare possibilities of terrorist attacks.

As long as people maintain that immigration drives our economy, there will be little incentive for change.

The real number is closer to 10 million.

How can this be? I thought all the illegal aliens were in the southwest?

Shutdown the southern border for 10 years. I mean shut it down. No one and nothing gets in or out. Round up all the illegals and deport them.

Okay, I'll stop dreaming now.

Too many people think the Bill of Rights applies to everyone. WRONG. The Bill of Rights applies to US citizens ONLY.

No wonder those people want more illegal immigration ---the economy isn't in too great a shape --- at least not in California and Texas ---those people must believe more illegals are needed and then the budgets will be balanced.

Well, yeah, he is revitalizing Mexico, at our expense. Send your people here instead of making life better for them. Have them here illegally sending money back home and robbing our tax payers, straining our systems. It's a win-win for Fox.

Sorry, but the two party cartel in DC has no intention of securing our borders and protecting our sovereignty. They have an agenda, be it money, or votes. It doesn't matter a wit what you or the American people want. By their actions, our elected leaders have told us to go to h*ll.

I fear I have to agree with you Joe. And by not securing our borders they will bring the USA to it's knees.

Only thing to do is trust in the Lord, stockpile food, water, and other 'survival gear', watch, vote, and pray.

With the Patriot Act and our governments knee-jerk reaction to 9/11/01 we're headed into some very dark days.

Freedom is under attack from the inside and the outside.

No! The Bill of Rights applies to the U.S. Government, It was designed to restrict the government from interfearing in our lives. Through that restriction it supposedly protects U.S. Citizens. The Bill of Rights is ignored by the government because we don't understand the purpose of the Bill of Rights, until a majority of the people understand, it will continue to be ignored.

Yep, the consensus seems to be that we need more low wage earners to buy the cheap goods imported from China which are manufactured by even lower wage earners. As I see it, it has become our duty to provide the consumers for Chinese goods by allowing mass illegal immigration and providing low paying manual labor jobs.

I stand corrected. The Bill of Rights limits the powers the the US Gov't. I just reread them at this link:

http://www.law.cornell.edu/constitution/constitution.billofrights.html

What I'm saying this that these protections apply to US Citizens only, NOT illegal aliens.

That number is a vast understatement. The 2000 census in NJ was a joke as far as the illegal population. They just claimed 'legality' or failed to comply altogether. I suggest there are that many illegals in Hudson, Essex and Bergen county alone. I lived there...

"""Illegal immigrant population doubled in NJ during '90s"""

Maybe that accounts for why 50% of teens who recently took their state senior exit exam in New Jersey speak English as a second language.

IMHO, we should cut all forgin aid, and then use the surplus to put a bounty on the head of every illigal in the country.[The American public then help clean up our streets!!] As for those who die trying to get here, leave their bodies to rot along the border. Also the border patrol should be tought to shoot to kill first, then ask questions later!
As for Mr. Fox of Mexico, tell him if he wants our money, play by our rules or else.....

Dear Senator -------:

Recently, I shared with you the story of my sister in-law. You may remember she is an illegal alien, in Los Angeles. I am so confident of the complete corruption of our border and cowardice of our elected officials that I can discuss this freely. I have another tale, completely true.

Anyway, my illegal alien sister in-law called last night. She said her friends, also illegal, decided to have a baby. Why? By having a baby they believe they will get citizenship. My sister in-law is now is considering such a tactic.

Oh, but that is not the end of the story... I was told by her the US taxpayers, (those are the fools in this story) paid for the medical bills for this delivery. The illegal simply showed up at the hospital and demanded service. The illegal didn't pay a penny.

Oh, but that is not the end of the story... I just spoke with my neighbor, here in Olathe, they just had a baby. It cost $8000. The taxpayers did pay for her baby! But she is a citizen. (Remember we are the fools in this story).

Thanks again for turning our country into a Kossovo.

Oh, no need to respond. You can witness our national suicide as easily as I can.

I love this country, even if I'm a little bitter about the story above.

Do you know why slow bleeding of America continues?

Because the crew that run the country profit from the gradual beggaring of REAL Americans. Further, well-intentioned real Americans are still faithfully sending their sons off to be cannon fodder for wars that basically have nothing to do with us.

Why fight foreign wars, when we have one to fight here at home....?

Can you tell an illigal mexican from a hispanic American? Can you make sure that the American Public, when finding these illigals, finds illigals and not citizens. What about illigal irishmen in the US? How will you find them?

I guess I should get to the point. You are about as dumb as my shoe.

What kind of ID? Legal residents and citizens already have a Social Security Card. Those that don't have one are illigal. Now, how, and where would you go about asking folks for their SS Cards?

If I had all of the answers, I would run for office. I am still refining my idea. As I have said it is only an idea. It would be shot down in flames before it ever was enacted on. [Too bad I think it would have worked too!]
