Border Patrol officials say communities along the border are safer following the completion of 74 miles of improved border wall systems. Those systems include 30-foot bollard walls, new border-access roads, lighting, and electronic surveillance. Construction on an additional 158 miles is underway with 450 miles scheduled to be completed by the end of 2020.Bob Price (breitbart.com)
A study by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology confirms what many already knew; that is, that there are more illegal immigrants in the country then the 11-13,000,000 commonly cited.

The crisis at the southern border is very real – whatever it takes, the United States of America must secure the border to defend her sovereignty…

The United States of America is facing an illegal immigration crisis at our southern border. A country without borders cannot survive – immigration without assimilation is an invasion! Purchase this bumper sticker to show your support for American sovereignty.
Any individual who can chew gum and scratch their head at the same time understands that there is a legitimate crisis at our border. This criterion, however, excludes most democrats; therein, facts are inconvenient and diminish the likelihood of permanency in their policy objectives – a welfare state with open borders.
With a liberal allegiance pervasive in modern media, a campaign of political propaganda to discredit President Trump, using soundbites and misinformation, has been implemented to serve as a smokescreen against the real crisis at our border.
Consider the following:
Apprehensions. February 2019 was the worst month since fiscal year 2008, as 76,325 illegal aliens were apprehended crossing our southern border – and most of these people will get to stay here at US taxpayer expense! This increased influx of illegals has overwhelmed Border Patrol, where needed resources are being diverted from enforcement to the provision of humanitarian care. Furthermore, imagine how many illegals crossed the border but weren’t caught! Source: New, awful data shows that the border invasion is worse than ever
Given these statistics, Homeland Defense Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen stated:
We are on track for this year, for 900,000 apprehensions at the border. We need a barrier. We cannot take operational control of the border without it.
Health. So far this fiscal year, the state of Texas has reported that 186 people have contracted mumps – a highly contagious virus – in migrant detention facilities. Source: 200 Cases of Mumps Confirmed in Texas Migrant Detention Centers
Drug Trafficking. In January 2019, US Customs and Border Protection reported making a record-breaking seizure of fentanyl on the US-Mexico border. Weighing 254 pounds, it’s their biggest seizure to date. Given that the DEA has stated that as little as 2 milligrams can be fatal, the amount seized represents the potential to kill 57,000,000 Americans. Further, for the year 2017, the Centers for Disease Control estimated 28,400 deaths from synthetic opioids. Source – BREAKING: Record Fentanyl Seizure Made At Border, Enough To Kill 57 Million
Sex Trafficking. Though estimates vary, DHS statistics indicate that one in three females are victims of a sexual assault on their journey to the US border. Source: DHS Secretary: Every Migrant Girl Over 10 Gets Pregnancy Test.
Because of the increase in violence, at ICE, when we have families with children, we have to give every girl a pregnancy test over 10. This is not a safe journey.Kirstjen Nielsen, Homeland Defense Secretary
Economic. In addition to the aforementioned examples, economic interests further serve to reinforce the breadth of our border crisis –
The federal government’s cheap labor policy widens wealth gaps, reduces high tech investment, increases state and local tax burdens, hurts kids’ schools and college education, pushes Americans away from high-tech careers, and sidelines millions of marginalized Americans…
Conclusion. Despite concerted efforts on behalf of democrats to subvert the truth, facts are a stubborn thing. The crisis at our southern border is very real, and President Trump’s Emergency Declaration to such ends, entirely appropriate. The left should be ashamed of themselves; that, however, requires honesty and a conscience.

By suggesting that they don’t want enforcement of our nation’s immigration laws, the left is signaling what they really want – the end of America as a nation.
It’s the way countries end and a new dictatorship begins. You call for anarchy, and then you get a dictator.
The United States of America must secure our borders – build the wall, to gain control of illegal immigration and begin to safeguard our citizenry. And, most certainly, we cannot continue to permit the infestation of illegality via sanctuary cities! Visitors can find this design on a variety of different products in my gallery at Society 6 – so, check it out…
According to the the most authoritative report on the issue yet, illegal immigration is costing U.S. taxpayers $116 billion per year ($135 billion, less $19 billion in taxes paid to federal, state and local treasuries). Build the wall!
Immigration without assimilation is invasion.
Absent from most political rhetoric espousing intentions to secure our southern border is the one tangible form of border security necessary as a starting point to create lasting immigration reform: the border fence.
Consider San Diego. In 1996, Congress passed a bill to require construction of a double-layered fence along the coast. Despite completion of only 14 miles of the proposed 60 miles, apprehension of illegal aliens fell by 95%.
Consider Israel. Pursuant to the construction of a double-layer fence with a security zone in the middle – similar to the San Diego fence, “suicide attacks perpetrated by Arab terrorists declined by well over 90%.”
Consider the cost. Despite Israeli expenditures of $1.8 million per mile to construct their border fence, calculating the cost based on $9 million per mile (as estimated by DHS for the cost of the San Diego fence), a 700 mile double-layered fence would cost roughly $6 billion to construct. Given that, over the lifespan of each illegal alien whom is prevented from entering the United States, American taxpayers save $700,000 per individual, the cost to build the fence to ensure American sovereignty is negligible.
Build the border fence!

Despite limited coverage of select cases, the liberal news media generally goes out of its way not to report on crimes committed by illegal aliens against Americans. However, conservative Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) has compiled a useful list which demonstrates that such instances of crime are both common and dangerous – see Illegal Immigration Stories.
“One of the things it points out is the president has claimed, rather absurdly, that the basis of his authority is ‘prosecutorial discretion.’ That he’s simply choosing not to prosecute 4.5 million people here illegally. But what the district court concluded, quite rightly, is they’re doing far more than that. The administration is printing work authorizations. It is affirmatively acting in contravention of federal law. Basically, what its doing is counterfeiting immigration documents, because the work authorizations its printing are directly contrary to the text of federal law. It is dangerous when the president ignores federal law.”
