Giving amnesty to the illegal aliens covered by President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program would cost American taxpayers $26 billion, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO). The additional costs to taxpayers include Medicaid, food stamps, refundable tax credits, federal college benefits and Obamacare subsidy payments.

Illegal immigration across the Mexican border declined for a number of months after President Trump took office. But recently it has begun to rise again. The Border Patrol apprehended 40,000 illegals along the border in November, a twelve percent increase from October. The recent level is more than twice what it was in March and April.
Many observers contend that the numbers went down because potential border crossers believed that the president’s strong rhetoric against illegal immigration would bring new effective laws to stop it. As that has not happened yet, the watchers south of the border have become emboldened again.

Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski (R) endorsed the Dream Act amnesty which would provide legal status for three million illegal aliens. Once legalized they could petition to bring in their relatives. Without specifying whether she meant legal or illegal, Murkowski stated, “America is a land of immigrants–it is who we are.”
Mark Kirkorian, director of the Center for Immigration Studies replied to her comment: ” ‘America is a land of immigrants — it is who we are.’ This is Obama-lite nonsense–politicians don’t tell us who we are. We just hire [politicians] to look after our interests. If you take Murkowski’ ramblings seriously, she seems to think Americans are pathetic losers who need immigrants to function. This kind of silly blather is so cliched it might have been generated by a computer program.”

The recent terror attack in New York City prompted the White House to issue a statement: “This attack with the president on immigration reforms that enhance our nation security and public safety. We must protect our borders, we must ensure that individuals entering our country are not coming to do harm to our people, and we must move to a merit-based system of immigration.”

President Trump and administration officials called for tighter restrictions on immigration after a Bangladesh Muslim living in Brooklyn attempted to carry out a terrorist attack in New York City. Only the terrorist’s incompetent bomb-making spared innocent Americans in a crowded commuter tunnel. “America must fix its lax immigration system, which allows far too many dangerous, …

President Trump accuses Democrats in Congress of putting the protection of illegal aliens above the protection of Americans. During his weekly radio address, the President called for an end to sanctuary cities, noting the tragedy of the killing of Kate Steinle by an illegal released by San Francisco. The President says the Dems are willing …

Thirty-four Republican congressmen sent a letter to House Speaker Paul Ryan (WI) asking for passage of the DACA amnesty for illegal aliens before the end of the year. They did not ask for any concessions to pass this amnesty, such as a sharp reduction of chain migration or mandatory use of the E-Verify system by businesses. Critics of these congressmen charge they represent the cheap labor interests of the Republican Party.

Previously unreleased data from DHS show that every two new immigrants to the U.S bring roughly seven foreign relatives with them, creating an enormous, never-ending flood of family-based immigration. This chain migration is the largest driver of legal immigration. Currently, only one in 15 foreigners admitted to the U.S. come to our country based on skills …

The Mckinsey Global Institute issued a report which forecasts that as many as a third of jobs in the U.S. now done by people will be automated. This is one of many recent studies which predict a high level of automation displacing workers in the near-future. Despite these forecasts, immigration advocates keep claiming that we are facing a shortage of workers.
