Default Americaís Southern Border Isnít Just a Crisis, Itís a Disgrace

Americaís Southern Border Isnít Just a Crisis, Itís a Disgrace

Chris Buskirk



Why have Democrats shut downóor at least partially shut downóthe federal government rather than approve partial funding for a wall along the southern border? President Trumpís $5.7 billion request is a trivial sum, amounting to a bit more than one-tenth of 1 percent of the federal budget. Itís far less than the amount we give to Latin American countries in handouts every year and itís part of a sacred commitment government has to defend our border, uphold our laws, and protect our people.

President Trump described a humanitarian crisis at the border contrived by Democrats with the active complicity of misguided Republicans who think that attracting a helot class from Latin America to clean their houses, mow their lawns, and drive down wages for low-skill jobs is some sort of capitalist charity scheme that signals their virtue. It isnít.

In fact, itís inhumane. How can we describe the human trafficking racket that transports so many of these people here, including many thousands involved in the sex trade or forced into servitude for the cartels, as anything other than a modern slave trade?

And it comes with all of the violence and degradation you would expect. For example, a 2017 report by Doctors Without Borders says that ď1 in 3 women are sexually assaulted on the dangerous trek up through Mexico.Ē And in 2016 over 20,000 children crossed the border alone and were apprehended by ICE. For what purpose are children being sent without their parents across the desert in the custody of gangsters? There is no good answer. The solution is to stop enticing people north with hopes of off-the-books jobs, fake IDs, access to American welfare programs, and a potential future amnesty.

What these virtue signalers are really engaging in is not charity or mercy; it is the strip mining of Latin Americaís most valuable assetsóits peopleóand the break-up of families and traditional cultures and social structures for their own purposes.

To make matters worse, they are creating social and economic crises for their fellow Americans. Not that they see displaced Rust Belt workers, broken working class families, or unemployed and underemployed men across the country as fellow Americans. Theyíre just anonymous economic inputs who can be replaced by a cheaper model or, worse, just losers who can be ignored and vilified as deplorables and bitter clingers. Thatís a violation of the social compact.

Harvard economist George Borjas notes just one example of the economic depredations suffered by Americaís lower and middle classes thanks to illegal migration: ďAccording to census data, immigrants admitted in the past two decades lacking a high school diploma have increased the size of the low-skilled workforce by roughly 25 percent. As a result, the earnings of this particularly vulnerable group dropped by between $800 and $1,500 each year.Ē And then thereís the crime.

In the past two years, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Service arrested 266,000 illegal aliens with criminal records (127,992 in 2017 and 138,177 in 2018). That number included nearly 100,000 violent assaults, 4,000 murders, 30,000 sex crimes. Pause for a moment and think about that. Every one of those crimes was entirely avoidable, unnecessary, and the result of governmentís failure to perform itís most solemn duty: protecting the lives of its citizens.


Worse, our government allowed, even promoted, immigration policies that led to violence upon and death of Americans in the pursuit of money and votes. Remember that every time someone tells you open borders are compassionate.

Many millions of people have entered the United States illegally and remain here openly violating our laws. They work illegally, drive illegally, consume public services, and displace Americans, especially working class Americans, from their jobs. Even thatís not enough for elites and political operators eager to replace natives with a new population more to their liking.

Right now, states and cities across the country are pushing legislation that would give illegal aliens the right to vote (though many already do so illegally), which distorts our elections and deprives Americans of their rightful representation. Gavin Newsom, Californiaís new governor, has called his entire state a ďsanctuary,Ē while New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio is adding the Big Appleís illegal migrants to the cityís Medicaid rolls and sticking citizens with the bill.

At the same time, President Trump said on January 4 that people ďcan apply to come into our country legally, like so many people have done. And we need people. Major. We have to have people. Because we have all these companies coming in. We need great people. But we want them to come in on a merit basis, and they have to come in on a merit basis. They canít come in the way theyíve been coming in for years.Ē Heís right, but thatís not whatís happening.

The much-publicized ďmigrant caravansĒ from Central America are being financed by a coalition of left-wing NGOs with the express purpose of breaking our laws. This is immoral and should be condemned. The people involved in it are bad actors who upend the lives of the people they enroll in these caravans and use as human props in American political battles. And whatís so wrong with Latin America anyway? A more moral and sustainable approach would be to encourage these same people to develop their own countries.

Would someone whose entire way of life in a new country is based upon breaking that countryís laws make a good citizen, a good partner in self-government? Certainly not. There are between 10.5 and 22 million illegal aliens in the United States. That is unsustainable.

Speaking to the nation from the Oval Office, President Trump, explained the moral responsibility of our government to each of us as citizens when he said that people, ďdonít build walls because they hate the people on the outside, but because they love the people on the inside. The only thing that is immoral is for the politicians to do nothing and continue to allow more innocent people to be so horribly victimized.Ē

Likewise, he has repeatedly reminded his detractors that Americans have dreams too, and it is the job of government to create a civic, cultural, and political environment in which they can pursue them. A secure border, sensible immigration rules that are consistently enforced will help build a high trust society in which voluntary associations and individual initiative create rich communities. The current chaos wreaks havoc on our communities and on individual lives. Look no further than police office Ronil Singh who was gunned down in the line of duty. Officer Singh immigrated legally to the United States with his family. He did it the right way and added to his community and to the nation. Gustavo Perez Arriago, an illegal alien and Mexican national, did not and now stands accused of his murder. The choice is clear. Will we stand with Americans like Officer Singh or with those who believe that allowing Arriago into the country is just a cost of doing business. The time to act is now.

Henry Olsen, a scholar at the Ethics and Public Policy Center and a columnist here at American Greatness has explained that illegal migration pushes normal American citizens into economic competitions they cannot win. Thatís fundamentally unfair, especially as those same forces also upend their communities, strain social services, and undermine the basic requirements and expectations of self-government. Meanwhile so-called conservatives defend this insanity in the name of a misunderstood devotion to markets or addiction to cheap, peasant labor. They seem to have forgotten that America is a country with an economy, not the other way around. And losing sight of that basic truth theyíre destroying the basis of our shared liberty and prosperity. That is not just a national crisis, itís a disgrace, and President Trump is right to insist that Congress act to protect the American people.

People are wasting their breath and pen presenting arguments for border security to the left.
Nancy Pelosi issued those marching orders last week when she told DHS Secretary Nielson "I reject your facts."

What must happen now is to crush the life out of the mindless left (figuratively speaking of course).
But, they must be crushed.

So far there is only one man who has shown he has what it takes to crush these evil ************* (now a common profanity).

That would be Donald J Trump.

Conservatives and traditional Dems, who understand the true significance of the sham being foisted on the American citizens, need to ensure they keep the truth square in the face of all the liars who keep trying to ignore the issue. The liars who have demonstrated time and time again they are not about America or their fellow citizens, they are all about trying to regain power in this nation. I believe even the never Trump crowd understands why this issue is so important and why the leftist in this nation cannot be allowed to use illegals to try and steal from the American people.

The leftist and their minions are to blame for the loss of confidence in their political agenda that the American people are demonstrating. People need to remember it is the leftist who attacked the citizens first when the American people did not bow down and conform to their mandates. If you do not agree with their agenda and rejected it for what it is, you were called every name in the book and they tried to shame you for standing firm on your beliefs that did not align with theirs. Now that they have lost a sizable portion of their voting base due to self exposure of who and what they really are, they have abandoned any loyalty to this nation and have went full on rogue.

In nature preserves around the world, rogue animals are put down for the simple reason they are a dangerous threat to everything in the reserve, including the keepers. These rogue animals can no longer be trusted to behave as normal and usually cause mayhem before being taken down. In human society those exact same conditions exist when you have a radical rogue group or individuals, they become a threat to society as a whole. In society we take a more civilized approach than just putting these individual down, we still however take action to minimize or eliminate the threat they present. The American citizens are the keepers of our society and it is all of our responsibilities to ensure the radical rogue leftist groups or individuals, are stripped of power, influence and opportunity to cause mayhem in our society.

NO MORE TOLERANCE AND NO MORE ACCEPTANCE.

Not going to happen. The majority of American's don't want a wall built. Most Americans blame Trump for the shutdown. You're not crushing anybody.

Absolutely 100% false. Check any poll out there. The majority of Americans want border security... but DO NOT support the building of a wall. Trump campaigned almost exclusively on that issue in November and Americans didn't buy it.

When you little girls stop crying about not getting your wall... do your homework. Take a moment to look at virtually every major poll on the topic. You'll find that the majority of Americans are NOT in favor of building it. Even the Conservative websites have polled this question time and time again... and the results are consistent. 57 to 63% of Americans DO NOT support building a wall on the Southern border.

You want to argue this fact on emotion... that's up to you.

The facts don't change just because the President says so. Sorry.

Grow up you moron. The Republican party is being thwarted by THIS!! there are so many running around.
It's a Crisis! The likes of which are scary!
It's burning down California too! It is a Crisis. I repeat, it is a Crisis, and the dems are psychopaths to win.
What's worse is there are largely Quiet really tough people who aren't having this trend.

Indeed we "Americans" do want the wall to help protect our sovereign nation from invading hordes.

Please stick with your resolve on the wall budget Mr. President; let the damn, anti-American, libbie scum in Congress eat it.

It is troubling what has been happening at our southern boarder. Hope that improvements can be made there soon.
