When one of the new darlings of the Democrat Party, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez can slam half of America with the amazing insult that the Illegals are more American than Trump supporters, it makes me angry. Yes, Angry! I don’t know if its righteous indignation or not, but I confess it is anger that courses through my mind. How dare she!
Of course, she said that in an interview with Rachel (Mad Cow) Maddow and the two leftists enjoyed a night of Trump bashing. Her argument was largely based on her assertion that Illegals commit far fewer crimes at a far lower rate than native-born Americans. I’m not sure how she calculates her statistics but if you consider there are millions more native-born Americans than Illegals you immediately see her argument crumble. Then she went into her diatribe and attempted to spin the spin of the moral issue of ‘women and children’ simply trying to gain refuge from their oppressive lands. She claimed they are acting more American than any person trying to keep them out will ever be. Sorry, ACO you are missing the entire picture not just the big picture.
She then went into her chant and rant that Trump has a long history of being a racist and claimed, without documentation or evidence, that he has a “proven track record of discrimination against anybody who’s really non-white.” She then regurgitated the staple of the Left that Trump is dysfunctional and that causes Americans to feel unsafe. I hate to break it to you ma’am, but I feel safer with him as president than I did under your Star, Barack Obama. He is trying to secure our borders something that the Democrats have claimed to support in the past but resist now.
She didn’t stop there as she continued the Democrat attack on the Border Patrol and ICE. claiming that they were agencies guilty of systematically violating human rights. What about the human rights of American citizens? Oh, I’m sorry, I forgot for the Leftists American citizens, other than them have no human rights. Apparently with her claim that Illegals are more American than many of us, maybe she doesn’t consider us human.
Nancy Pelosi in her attempt to rebut the President’s speech claimed that Trump was ‘manufacturing a crisis’ at the border. But, when her claims are fact-checked we find that she spoke with forked tongue again and got it wrong. If you examine and research the crimes committed at the southern border you find some amazing facts and facts that should alarm you. We have evidence of drug cartel warfare, drug trafficking is epidemic, asylum fraud is being perpetrated at an alarming rate, numerous deaths have occurred and the skyrocketing cost to the American taxpayer is alarming.
The President got it right when he claimed that during the past two years ICE. officers have made 266,000 arrests of aliens with criminal records. Does that disturb you? It does me! Those arrested included people charged or convicted of crimes. There were 100,000 assaults, 30,000 sex crimes, and 4,000 violent murders. Does that not scream – Secure the Border Now? It does to me!
In 2018 alone ICE agents arrested more than 6,600 convicted murderers and sex offenders. But, according to the Democrats, this is a manufactured crisis and not real. Tell that to the people who were victims of those criminals and crimes. Of that number 4,975 were convicted sex offenders. Hey, Nancy, and Ms. Ocasio-Cortez, I’m sure you want to invite them to your homes, right? NO, YOU DO NOT! Let me add, I do not want you to do that either. I don’t want you or any American harmed by Illegals or anyone but preventing harm by Illegals is a fixable problem. The other 1,641 had been convicted of homicides. But, they are just women and children trying to come here for safety and sanctuary, right? Facts don’t lie. There are women and children but there are a significant number of the other kind too and we must deal with everyone and secure the border. There were another 1,913 illegals with pending sex charges against them and 387 with pending murder charges. This is not a bunch of Sunday School children.
Many are sick and bringing in communicable diseases, some of which we eradicated in the United States decades ago. But, alas, we must open the doors and welcome anyone and everyone regardless of their condition or mindset, according to the Democrats. I voted no in 2016, 2018, and vote no now on that position. Drug overdoses in 2017 took the lives of 72,287 American residents, that is almost three times the number killed by global terrorism. The cartels have raked in billions of dollars in the process and they care not one wit about American or any lives. Since 2009 there have been a quarter of a million homicides in Mexico and about 30,000 disappearances. However, we do not know how many others simply disappeared at the hands of the drug lords and gangs, so the real numbers are worse than what I have stated.
Dare we ignore the valid reports that 1-in-3 migrant women or sexually assaulted or raped during their journey to the United States. The increase in applications for asylum is alarming. The rise is rooted in our faulty asylum policies because anyone claiming “credible fear” has about an 88% likelihood to avoid deportation. Therefore, when you get to the border immediately begin claiming ‘fear’ if deported. That is a get out of jail free card that is too freely given and used. The statistics and facts reveal that only about 10% of those claiming “credible fear” have a legitimate claim.
We cannot afford to allow this crisis to continue. We cannot afford with regard to national security, safety, and health of American citizens, or economically. The cost on every front is too high to ignore this crisis and I applaud the President for standing his ground, unlike his Republican predecessors. To all the Democrats and Never Trump advocates who claim this is not a problem, I suggest you honestly examine the facts, not the faux facts presented by the Leftist. Check with those actually dealing with the problem and you will discover it is a problem and one of incredible seriousness.
God bless you and God bless America!
