Let’s be honest: the reasons Democrats are so sympathetic towards illegal immigration isn’t because they believe that it’ll be good for the country – in fact, I’m sure they’re aware that just the opposite is the case. They are aware however, that it’s good for Democrats.
Most illegals pouring into America are from Mexico and other Central American countries, and we know that legal American citizens from those areas vote heavily to the Left. There’s no end to the list of central and Southern American nations that have tried, or currently under socialist rule. People from that region of the world just tend to be further Left than your average person, and Democrats want to exploit that by turning over fifteen million illegal aliens into legal citizens – and thus ensure a Democrat majority in government perpetually.
I think we’ve all complained about government workers not doing their jobs before (especially after a trip to the DMV) but when it comes to those working to protect our southern border, they want to do their jobs, but are constantly thwarted by Obama’s policies. Approximately eight in ten illegals apprehended at the Mexican border is released.… into the US. How does that make any sense at all?
Well, if you want just one hint at why illegals will never stop crossing the border, it’s because they think it’s OK, in part due to our Democrats in office. As the Gateway Pundit reported:
Reporter Dan Plante spent the day on the border and came back with a stunning report that first aired on August 17th. Dan says 9 out of 10 illegals are released back on the streets of San Diego.
Dan told viewers even if thousands of agents were hired and every illegal was captured, the policy from the top is letting them go as fast as they are caught.
Chris Harris from the National Border Patrol Council told Dan when we ask people why they are coming here the answer is invariably the same.
“And it’s not the president, they actually say Obama said it was OK to come. So there’s a belief that they will remain. And the belief is true.”
And what is illegal immigration costing us? According to the Heritage Foundation, in 2010, the average unlawful immigrant household received around $24,721 in government benefits and services while paying some $10,334 in taxes. This means that each illegal household added $14,387 to the national debt. Amnesty would provide unlawful households with access to over eighty welfare programs such as Obamacare, Social Security, and Medicare. The fiscal deficit for each household would soar.
But that’s all ok for the Democrats, because as Nancy Pelosi once said, they never let a crisis go to waste.
