The Costs of Immigration, Legal and Illegal, and The Role and Rise of Donald Trump
Stalin is reputed to have said: “The death of one man is a tragedy; the death of millions is a statistic.”
Leaving aside how illegal (and legal) immigrants reduce wages and increase unemployment for American workers, and leaving aside how they burden American taxpayers, ($25 Billion per year in California) let’s look at the cost of illegal immigration to one American family.
[BTW, there is a record number of working age Americans not working, real wages for American workers have fallen, and all net employment gains since 2000 have gone to legal and illegal immigrants, while the Dems and Reps allow 1 Million plus mostly low skill, low education, non English speaking legal immigrants and 2.5 million illegal immigrants under Obama. In 2015, the Census Bureau estimates there will be 1.24 MILLION new legal immigrants. Please see links below.]
For this article, I am not going to get into the debate about how much illegal alien crime there is. First, the proper and acceptable amount of crime against Americans by illegal immigrants is ZERO. Second, the government and MSM do everything they can to conceal illegal immigrant crime and do not keep reliable statistics. Third, despite the government’s and MSM’s best efforts, there are continuing stories in conservative media about heinous crimes against Americans by illegal immigrants. [To learn more about crime against Americans by illegal and legal immigrants, I heartedly recommend Ann Coulter’s book “Adios America!” I also include links at the end of this post if you want to read more.]
Laura Wilkerson testified on July 20 before the Senate regarding murder of her son, Joshua, by illegal immigrant, “DREAMER,” Hermilo Moralez, who qualified for Obama’s first unconstitutional executive amnesty in 2012 (which triggered the deluge of illegal immigrants last summer that is still continuing albeit with less publicity).
Mrs. Wilkerson testified:
Mrs. Wilkerson’s testimony
“Instead of getting Joshua home that day from school, we got an autopsy report.”
Reading from the autopsy: “‘This body is received in a grey body bag. There’s a tag on his toe that bears the name, Joshua Wilkerson. This is a white male weighing a hundred pounds. He is tied up with braided rope — 13 loops around his neck in a slipknot. It goes behind his back through his back belt loop. It goes to his hands and his feet, behind his body. He has multiple fractures in his face and nasal cavity. His throat and his voicebox are crushed.’”
“He was kicked so hard in the stomach that it sent his spleen into his spine, and sliced it in two… The medical examiner said it was torture.”
“‘This body has significant skin loss on his buttocks, his abdomen, his penis, his hands, and his face. He has one stick of gum and a tardy slip in his pocket.”
“This was our family’s 9/11 terrorist attack by a foreign invader, whether you want to recognize it or whether you do not. This government continues to fail or even recognize that we have an issue. Americans are dying daily at the hands of criminals that we don’t even know are here.”
“I will not give up another one of my children so that a foreign person can have a nicer life. I’m not going to do it. You don’t understand the pain. It’s so deep in the soul — in the place you don’t even recognize you have. There aren’t words to describe the pain to someone who has not gone through it. I’m not giving up another kid.”
“Sanctuary city policies scream to the criminal element of illegals in this country: ‘Come to our town USA, we’ll protect you from our terrible policemen. We’ll protect you from these tough American laws, that you — because you had a hard life — are not able to go through the same motion that an American is. It is going to take another life lost by a Senator, a Congressman, the President, even another of today’s heroes, someone from Hollywood before someone in a position moves on this. I urge you: you are in a position to do something about this for Americans.”
“I want you to know that our family is broken, forever. We are forever broken. I don’t want the sympathy. I want you to do something about it. Every one of you sitting here is in a position to do something. Just throw your hat into the ring for Americans. Quit sitting silent because it’s going to help you get a vote. Throw your hat in the ring and take care of American families.”
Every Federal Dem and Rep politician that refuses to enforce America’s immigration laws is partially responsible for the torture murder of Joshua Wilkerson, the murder of Kate Steinle, and so many others. Every state and local Dem and Rep politician , every business, every chamber of commerce, every labor union, every liberal foundation, every open border illegal immigration advocacy group, and every MSM outlet, editor and reporter, who aid and abet illegal immigration is partially responsible for the torture murder of Joshua Wilkerson, the murder of Kate Steinle, and so many others.
Mrs. Wilkerson testified:
“I thank you to Mr. Trump for getting a message out about the nation in two minutes… that countless families like my own have been trying to say for five to six years. It feels good to be heard whether you love him, or whether you don’t, I felt heard.”
Politicians often use people for props at press conferences or meet with them in front of cameras to show how much the politician “cares.”
Recently Donald Trump met privately in Beverly Hills with families who had someone in their family killed by an illegal immigrant before holding a press conference with them to publicize their stories and the problem of illegal immigrant crime against Americans. Donald Trump took time to listen to their stories with no TV camera present. Here is a link to pictures from the meeting. http://us4.campaign-archive1.com/?u=03c427bceddf31727d1b5026d&id=e5c2f4d1e5&e=6f1dc8a01d
What other candidate is willing to meet with families who had someone killed by an illegal immigrant?
What other candidate is willing to speak for Mrs. Wilkerson, her murdered son, Joshua, and the thousands and thousands of Americans and their families who were, are and will be killed, raped and robbed by illegal immigrants?
That is in part why Donald Trump, with all of his flaws, is leading the race for the Rep nomination for president.
Donald Trump can’t be bought and won’t back down.
Again, the proper and acceptable amount of crime by illegal immigrants against American is ZERO!!!
That the fact Trump is leading causes fear, consternation, annoyance and puzzlement to the Establishment Reps, MSM, and the vast coalition of Dems, Establishment Reps, big business, the Chamber of Commerce i.e. Crony Capitalism, labor unions, MSM, and leftist political groups supporting illegal immigration, 1 Million plus per of legal immigration and open borders, is icing on the cake.
That coalition is doing everything possible to stop Donald Trump because he is willing to put Americans, American workers and American taxpayers ahead of illegal immigrants. While they claim “compassion” and “sympathy” for illegal immigrants, that coalition puts their selfish political and economic interests, ahead of America, American workers and American taxpayers. Even if their compassion is genuine, they are putting the interests of foreigners ahead of Americans. The last thing they want is anyone blowing the whistle of their immigration scam and scheme.
For that coalition, Joshua Wilkerson, Kate Steinle and so many others are unfortunate but necessary casualties to achieve their political and economic ends.
Is their “compassion” and “sympathy” for illegal immigrants genuine? Ask yourself a question. If immigrants, legal and illegal when the can vote or vote illegally, voted 70% for Reps, how much support would there be for illegal immigration and massive legal immigration?
As Mrs. Wilkerson said: “Quit sitting silent because it’s going to help you get a vote. Throw your hat in the ring and take care of American families.”
At this point, only Donald Trump is demonstrating his willingness to do so.
