Real Facts from Our Border

In Front Page, Illegal immigration by Allen West

“Chuck and Nancy” are not giving the American public all the facts when it comes to the issue of securing our southern border. It is sad, tragic, that a seven-year-old little girl lost her life — likely due to journey-related causes — but how many American citizens have lost their lives at the hands of illegal immigrants? Why is it that we do not see the same fervor from the liberal progressive media and progressive socialists when American lives are lost? Kate Steinle and Mollie Tibbetts immediately come to mind.

Thanks to our friends over at Breitbart, we have some very interesting statistics to share with y’all on the issue of criminal illegal immigration.

“The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency arrested more than 6,500 illegal aliens who have been convicted of homicide and sexual offenses in Fiscal Year 2018. 

Between September 2017 and October 2018, ICE agents arrested a little more than 6,600 convicted murderers and convicted sex offenders who were in the United States illegally.

Of that total, 4,975 of the illegal aliens arrested were convicted sex offenders. The other 1,641 illegal aliens had been convicted of homicide. Another 1,913 illegal aliens that were arrested by ICE had pending sex offense charges against them, while 387 illegal aliens had pending murder charges against them. 

As Breitbart News reported, ICE agents arrested 158,581 illegal aliens, surpassing the more than 140,000 illegal alien arrests made last year and the 110,100 illegal alien arrests in the last year of President Obama’s tenure. 

The nearly 160,000 illegal alien arrests for this Fiscal Year mark the highest number of arrests by ICE since Fiscal Year 2014. Of the almost 160,000 illegal aliens, 66 percent were convicted criminals or those with pending criminal charges which translates to about 140,000 of those arrested.

The more than 105,000 convicted criminal illegal aliens arrested by ICE this year also include:

54,630 illegal aliens convicted of drunk driving
29,987 illegal aliens convicted of assault
9,834 illegal aliens convicted of burglary
4,423 illegal aliens convicted of robbery
3,740 illegal aliens convicted of sexual assault
1,294 illegal aliens convicted of kidnapping”

Now, what was all that chatter from the progressive socialist left about abolishing ICE? Of course, what I would like to know is how many of these criminal illegal immigrants were found in sanctuary cities or states?

Are people like Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi not concerned about the safety and security of American women? We should be asking them why they would want to see more criminal illegal immigrants in our America that are sex offenders? Why do we have criminal illegal immigrants in our country that are convicted murderers?

Why is it that the liberal progressive media is not asking these progressive socialists why don’t support ICE? Why is the left willing to allow more single military-age males into the United States illegally? I mean, seriously, is anyone paying attention to what Angela Merkel’s open borders policy has meant not just for Germany but for all of Europe?

These numbers are astronomical and very disconcerting, hardly to be revealed on ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC, MSNBC, or PBS. It is imperative that we have border security. It is a priority function of our federal government to keep the citizens of this Constitutional Republic safe.

What these numbers represent is not a failure by our ICE agents, and law enforcement. It represents a failure of those elected officials who are playing a very dangerous game with our lives. Now, combine this with the fact that the progressive socialist left seeks to undermine and erode our second amendment right, and you have a recipe for disaster.

These so-called mayors of “sanctuary cities” need to be held criminally liable as they are complicit in these statistics. They are allowing the real deplorables — criminal illegal immigrants — to take our lives, harm our children, and destroy our nation.

Yes, this is certifiably FUBAR.
