WALL: Invasion blocker

Print Article

Once an Illegal Immigrant crosses the border, several things occur. Apprehended or not they remain in our country. Only known felons if caught are deported. Even felons are allowed to stay if accompanied by a minor.

Adding insult to injury, illegal immigrants are counted in our population census. These census figures are used to determine each states representation in Congress, as well as apportionment of Federal Tax dollars to each state.

Sanctuary states like California, New Jersey, New York, etc., directly benefit financially and politically from illegal immigration. Liberal politicians receive more money to spend and have greater representation in our government.

A Federal Judge recently ruled that asking immigration status was illegal for the 2020 Census. Neither Democrats nor Republicans really want border security. Businesses like cheap labor and liberal politicians like the money and power from illegal immigration.

Without a Border Wall to keep the illegals from entering, I fear our country will be destroyed by this uncontrolled invasion.
