Unfettered, Uncontrolled Immigration is a Cancer on the American Republic.

Unfettered, uncontrolled immigration is a cancer on the American Republic. 

The question is, why does it continue unabated?  There are lots of reasons.

One of the big drivers is the pernicious Chamber of Commerce.  Big business in America needs workers.  Illegal immigrants swell the worker pool, doing many of those supposed “jobs American’s won’t do.” You know, those in the construction industry, hotels, farming, etc.  To the degree that big business can employ illegal immigrants at wages below those which would be required to pay Americans to work, illegal immigration is a winning issue for them.

Another is the Catholic Church, which not only solicits funds from parishioners but also generates hundreds of millions of dollars annually for supporting the illegal alien invasion.    

The Chamber and the Vatican are only part of the cabal of businesses, NGOs and government agencies that have built an ecosystem around the illegal immigrant trade. Somebody has to sell the cell phones the government is giving to illegals.  Companies have to facilitate the tens of billions of dollars illegal aliens send home every year. Someone has to provide the gasoline for planes to fly immigrants around the country.   Schools get bigger budgets – to the tune of $59 billion.  Hospitals earn almost $20 billion a year. Even hotels get into the mix, with one upscale Times Square hotel with rooms going for $400 a night completely booked with illegal immigrants some of whom spend their time beating their spouses, doing drugs, drinking, throwing out food and having sex in the stairways. And of course the tens of thousands of bureaucrats across the country at all levels who must be hired to deal with the onslaught.  All of this paid for by government, which means by taxpayers. Beyond all of that, we’re even paying $6 million a day to defense contractors to NOT build a wall on our southern border! 

The amounts involved are simply staggering, well over $100 billion annually (or $200 billion depending on who’s counting) and that’s surely a severe undercount when considering that doesn’t count the “enforcement” of the border element of the equation. Every single year

Needless to say, there are a lot of people in the country making money from the surge in illegal immigrants. While your money goes into the pockets of the illegal alien empowerment cabal, it’s only money.  There are other, far more vicious costs.  Not the least of which was paid by the families of the 100,000 Americans who died of a fentanyl overdose, a drug that almost exclusively comes over the southern border.  Plus there were many times that number of addicts who didn’t succumb and continued to wreak havoc in their homes and communities. And then there are the tens of thousands of women and children who suffer as a result of sex trafficking across the border. And then there’s the price paid in life and treasure by the victims of illegal alien crime.  And Democrats whined when Trump wanted to spend a few billion to build a wall

And exactly how many illegal immigrants are in the country?  Numbers are all over the map.  In 2021 DHS estimated that the number of illegal aliens in 2018 was 11 million.  Not surprisingly that’s essentially the exact same number the government has been claiming there are for decades!  That 11 million is of course a lie.  The same year Yale and MIT estimated the number at 22 million and potentially as high as 29 million.  Way back in 2005 Bear Sterns estimated the number was 20 million with another 3 million coming in annually.  If that assessment was accurate then here 18 years later we’d have another 52 million illegals in the country for a total of 72 million!

The one thing we know is that the government has been telling us the number is 11 million since the 90s. That is a lie.  It is simply impossible.  In just the last 22 months 5.2 million people illegally crossed into the United States, and that doesn’t include the hundreds of thousands if not millions who eluded detection.  The exact number of illegal aliens in our midst is impossible to know for certain, but the most likely number is 35 million or more. 

Given that illegal aliens seem to make up almost 10% of our population, the question is again:  Why doesn’t someone stop this invasion.  The real answer is actually quite simple:  Power.

The reason this is not stopped is because illegal aliens flock to large cities in Democrat strongholds.  It’s not because they vote, although no doubt some of them do illegally.  No, it’s all about numbers.  We’ll start with the proportions reported by Pew Research in 2019 about where illegal aliens live.  As the report parrots the government’s lie of 11 million, we’ll triple their stated numbers.  Doing so gives us 33 million illegal aliens spread over all 50 states. 

Importantly however, 80% of those 33 million are located in large metropolitan areas of in just 15 states:  AZ, CA, FL, GA, IL, MD, MA, NJ, NY, NC, TX, VA & WA.  That’s approximately 24 million people, with 14.5 living in Democrat states and 9.1 living in GOP states.  The fact that they are people and but not citizens is critical, because Congressional representation is based on population, not citizens.  The number of people each Congressional district represents is approximately 735,000.

Of the 15 states listed above, 8 have majority Democrat Congressional delegations (CA, IL, MD, MA, NJ, NY, VA, WA) 4 have majority Republican delegations (AZ, FL, GA, TX) and one (NC) is even.  California, with its estimated 6.6 million illegal aliens, has between 8 & 9 more seats than it would without illegal aliens. New York with its 2.1 million approximately 3 more Congressmen while Texas, with its 4.8 million has 6 or 7.  When you do the math those 24 million illegal aliens living in those 15 states result in a net positive of 6 Congressional seats for Democrats. 

If six seats doesn’t sound like much, think again.  In 4 of the last 13 Congressional elections had the minority party had just six more seats they would have been the majority party. And with that majority comes power.  As the government has accumulated more power, as Washington has increased its control over the everyday lives of the American people, and as the leviathan of the bureaucracy has grown, the value of each and every illegal alien increases. 

Money and power.  Probably not news, but there it is. Those are the driving forces behind why this invasion of illegals is not being stopped, but why it’s being actively encouraged.  It’s interesting too that the cabal who are abetting this invasion are the familiar faces pushing the policies behind much of the dystopian chaos that our biggest cities are suffering through today:  Activist NGOs, big business, bureaucrats and of course the Democrat party. 

Hiding their avarice behind the fig leaves of “compassion” and “empathy” the members of this cabal increase their bank accounts and their power with little regard for the good or the desires of the citizens of the United States.  But the truth is, why should they?  They are all but declaring war on the United States and the American people, yet somehow they keep “winning” elections.  Who says insurrection doesn’t pay?

“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.”

In March of 1962 JFK observed that “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.”  Sixty years later his words resonate. 

We are seeing the foundations laid for a revolution.  Whether that revolution is peaceful or violent remains to be seen.  With virtually every society over time power becomes accumulated into the hands of the few elites.  Those elites in turn run the nation as their personal fiefdoms where they utilize the machinery of the state to enrich themselves, accumulate power and use trifles to appease the exponentially larger population of serfs they rule over. 

This reality applies to monarchies, to Communist tyrannies, to “democracies”, theocracies and even, as we’re coming to discover, republics.  It doesn’t have anything to do with economics either as it occurs in capitalist states, socialist states, Communist states and mercantile states.  The only difference is how long it takes for the structure to collapse. It took the Roman Republic 500 years to collapse, the French monarchy 1,000 years, the Soviet Union 70 years and the EU is shaky after just 30 years.  The American Republic finds itself on a precipice of collapse after less than 250 years. 

Here, we’re seeing it unfold right in front of us.

There is perhaps no better example of the disconnect between the ruling elites that last month’s utterance from the clown who runs the GOP in the Senate, Mitch McConnell.  He said of America sending another $45 billion to the Ukraine…. “Providing assistance for Ukrainians to defeat the Russians is the number one priority for the United States right now according to most Republicans.” That may be the biggest lie in American politics since Bill Clinton told the American people “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.”  Ukraine is not and has not been even close to the top of the list of important things to either the American people or Republicans.  According to data published by Statista the day before the election in November, of the 15 top priorities for Americans, foreign policy came in at #15 with only 37% of finding it “very important” while #1 was inflation with 69%, followed by healthcare and jobs at 62% and 61% respectively.  National security came in #4 with 60%, but most Republicans feel like the invasion on our southern border is far more threatening to the Republic than anything going on between Russia and Ukraine.  Democrats, not so much.

But that’s just one example of the elites pushing the country towards revolution.  Another is the House January 6 Committee that was set up to “investigate” the “insurrection” following the election of November 2020.  From start to finish the Committee was an exercise in gaslighting half the American population, with the ultimate goal being to keep Donald Trump off the ballot in 2024. Lapdog Liz Chaney stated as much:  There’s no question: A man as dangerous as Donald Trump can absolutely never be anywhere near the Oval Office ever again,”

The Committee laughably accused Donald Trump of inciting an insurrection, ignored proof that Nancy Pelosi is responsible for the chaos that took place, barely spoke to Ray Epps, one of the few, if not the only person caught on tape actually encouraging protesters to break into the Capitol, and they are hiding and refusing to release of over 14,000 hours of video from the Capitol during said “insurrection”. 

Another example of the elites putting their thumbs in the eyes of average Americans is the $1.7 trillion budget that Congress passed in December. No Congress in modern history has seen an outgoing House majority pass an omnibus appropriations bill in a lame-duck session. Had Congress articulated their priorities and passed the bill before the election that would have been one thing, but they didn’t, because doing so would have allowed the American people to vote on said priorities.  Nonetheless, even without Democrats showing their anti-American hand voters decided to deliver a GOP majority to the House. Traditionally a short term spending bill would have covered the holidays and given the new GOP majority the ability to influence the remainder of the FY 2023 spending.  But the Democrats would have none of it and shived the American people just before Christmas.

Of course the GOP could have stopped it with a filibuster, but instead of giving the American people a voice 18 treacherous Republicans voted “Yes”., forcing Americans to borrow hundreds of billions of dollars to:

Send $45 billion to Ukraine, on top of the $66 billion already provided.

Ensure that $410 million "remains available" to reimburse Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt, Tunisia and Oman for "enhanced border security."

Spend $11 million is for LGBT-themed projects.

Prohibit any of the $339 for ICE for being used to “acquire, maintain, or extend border security technology and capabilities”.

These are things that most Americans don’t care about or specifically oppose, but the uniparty elites in Washington don’t care.  Why should they? They keep getting sent back…

And it’s not just Congress, it’s the bureaucracy and the states that are undermining the Republic.  Across the country as businesses are finding it increasingly difficult to find employees Washington and state capitals are working hand in hand to undermine a fundamental principal of American freedom, the work ethic, by providing benefits that are impossible for businesses to compete with, particularly small businesses.  In 14 states unemployment, Obamacare and welfare payments combine to generate an annual income equivalent of $80,000, and in three states,  Washington, Massachusetts and New Jersey, over $100,000.  What Bostonian in their rational mind would take a minimum wage job ($15.00) generating $31,200 a year when they can sit back and the government will simply give them $100,000 instead?  The Swamp is training Americans to be dependent on and servile to the government. Is it a surprise that the number of Americans interested in being the taxpaying suckers in this equation is dropping?

And just in case anyone missed the point, Democrats are demonstrating in real time that they can and will steal elections with impunity.  In Arizona Kari Lake’s suit laid bare exactly how the Democrats do it, without even hiding it.  Machines that are programmed to fail when and where the GOP votes are expected to dominate, insecure ballots where chain of custody is mandated and potential judicial manipulation results in a Democrat victory for a candidate who spent more time in her basement than Joe Biden did in 2020.  Maricopa County brazenly showed Americans exactly how the election was stolen in 2020 and how they were bold enough to do the same 2022, knowing they would likely succeed. And they expect us to simply accept it…

All of this, plus the most recent Kennedy assassination files and the Twitter files make it clear that the desires, opinions and votes of the American people are of no consequence to the Swamp.

The uniparty cabal of politicians, bureaucrats, academics and media don’t care about elections, about freedom or about the prosperity of the American people.  They care only about their power and their bank accounts and will do whatever it takes to maintain their control.  Donald Trump upset that apple cart and as such had to be eliminated.  Thankfully they didn’t do to him what was done to JFK, but they removed him from office nonetheless.  He’s said he’s not done. We’ll see. Will Donald Trump 2.0 turn out to be King Leonidas at Thermopylae or King Sobieski at Vienna?  Will the Swamp heed JFK’s admonition?  Only time will tell, and 2024 is fast approaching.
