Sharyl Attkisson, a writer for The Hill, notes that “criminal aliens” — offenders whose crimes don’t include immigration law violations — “make up a disproportionate number of inmates in our prisons and jails. Seeing the numbers, one might fairly deduce that they commit serious crimes at a significantly higher number than those in the U.S. legally.”

Breitbart News reports that the U.S. House will vote on a resolution this week to condemn voting by illegal aliens in local elections. The resolution, introduced by House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), is in response to actions of several cities, including San Francisco and Boston, to provide this ballot option to illegal aliens. McCarthy observed that “These radical policies weaken the voting power of law-abiding Americans, including naturalized citizens.”
Breitbart notes that “[If] the Democrats oppose this measure en mass, as they are expected to, it will draw a clear contrast with Republicans ahead of the all-important midterm elections.”

A study by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), citing U.S. Census Bureau for 2017, found that almost half of residents of the five largest U.S. cities (48.2 percent) speak a language other than English at home. Among other findings of the study:
“In 2017, a record 66.6 million U.S. residents (native-born, legal immigrants, and illegal immigrants) ages five and older spoke a language other than English at home. The number has more than doubled since 1990, and almost tripled since 1980. As a share of the population, 21.8 percent of U.S. residents speak a foreign language at home — roughly double the 11 percent in 1980.”

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, U.S. foreign-born population (legal and illegal immigrants) reached 44.5 million in July of 2017. This amounts to 13.7 percent of the population, or nearly one out of every seven U.S. residents. As recently as 1980, the ratio of foreign-born to native-born was just one out of sixteen. In recent years, the primary sources of immigration have been from non-Mexico Latin America, Asia, and Africa.

The Dalai Lama, the Tibetan spiritual leader who won the 1989 Nobel Peace Prize, affirmed in Malmo, Sweden, that Europeans have an obligation to help refugees who face “danger against their [lives]” — but with the understanding that “Europe belongs to the Europeans.” He added that those refugees should eventually return home to rebuild their own countries.
The Dali Lama fled Tibet in 1959 following the Chinese takeover of his country. Since that time, the influx of Chinese has threatened to submerge the Tibetan people and their culture.

The number of illegal alien families from Central America arrested on the border sharply increased in August. Illegal alien adults bring children with them because they believe this will incline the government to release them if they are apprehended. Children now can only be held for a limited time. Before that time expires the government may feel inclined release the adults with the promise that they will show up their asylum hearing–a promise often not kept.
The Trump Administration is trying to end this incentive for release by keeping the children in detention with their parents until the parents’ claims for asylum are decided.
