Perez Reveals Ignorance

Tom Perez, the newly elected Democratic Committee chairman, attacked President Trump on NBC’s Meet the Press charging that Trump’s proposed temporary ban on travel from seven countries is an “ill-advised and frankly racist executive action against Muslims.” Perez seems unaware that the ban did not apply to most Muslim nations, but only to those seven because of their links to terrorism His statement also suggests unawareness that Islam is a religion, not a race.

Under Trump, ICE Agents Allowed to Do Their Jobs Again

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents say that under the new Trump administration, they’ve been empowered to carry out their duty to enforce immigration laws, instead of being punished and told not to arrest illegals.  Morale among ICE and Border Patrol agents has skyrocketed.

Sheriff Leader Condemns Sanctuary Lawlessness

National Sheriffs’ Association President and St. Charles, LA, Sheriff Greg Champagne condemned sanctuary jurisdictions, i.e., cities, counties, and states which refuse to cooperate with federal law enforcement. He added that illegal immigration is “big burden on sheriffs, border sheriffs, state sheriffs on that border, and it’s time that we send a message that just, the law is going to be enforced, and to say that we’re not going to cooperate, or for a governor to ask his people not to cooperate with the federal government is appalling.”

ABC Baits and Switches

More Misinformation from the Media:

While the economic impact of today’s actions remains unclear, several economic experts told ABC News that the U.S. economy and workforce would be a “disaster” without immigrants. If all immigrants were just to disappear from the U.S. workforce tomorrow, that would have a tremendous impact on the economy,” said Daniel Costa, the director of immigration law and policy research at the Economic Policy Institute, an economic research tank based in Washington, D.C.

David Kallick, the director of the Immigration Research Initiative at the Fiscal Policy Institute, said Americans should not be fearful that immigration is stealing jobs from them. “It may seem surprising, but study after study has shown that immigration actually improves wages for U.S. workers. . . . Kallick added that studies he has done found that where there is economic growth, there’s immigration, and where there’s not much economic growth, there’s not much immigration. – Without Immigration, the U.S. Economy Would Be a Disaster, Experts Say, Avianne Tan, ABC News, 2/16/17.

Fact Check: This article employs the deceptive tactic of bait and switch. It “baits” with an accurate statement, and then “switches” by substituting an inaccurate statement—while suggesting that both are equally valid.

The first statement is true. If all immigrants, who are now about 14 percent of our population, vanished tomorrow, the shock of their absence would dislocate the economy—at least for a time. But what exactly is the point of this observation? No one even remotely suggests that legal immigrants—three quarters of all immigrants—should leave. Many in fact are American citizens. Nor does anyone seriously suggest that we round up all illegal aliens and ship them all back at once. The appropriate policy is to tighten enforcement so that most will return home on their own—a gradual process which will avoid economic dislocation.

But to say that we would not want immigrants living here to “disappear” in no way implies that we should continue admitting immigrants at the record-breaking that we are now—which is the inaccurate part of this bait and switch. The article goes on to cite a supposed “expert” who claims that “study after study” proves that unending mass immigration benefits American workers by raising wages.

With respect to these studies, an article in The Atlantic pointed out that they are no better than the assumptions they rest on—and those assumptions don’t necessarily coincide with reality. If immigration does indeed raise wages—an idea certainly at odds with the economic law of supply and demand—then how does one explain that American wages in constant dollars have stagnated since 1970 when the current wave of mass immigration began to surge?

Also, if mass immigration is so wonderfully enriching, as it proponents claim, then why has the number of middle class Americans so significantly shrunk since 1970? Another measure to consider is the state of California which has by numbers and percentage more immigrants than any other state in the union. Surely then it would illustrate the enriching powers of immigration during the past five decades. But no, to the contrary, it has shifted from a prosperous middle-class state to one increasing shifting to a Third World economic paradigm: A small number of well-to-do people at the top and lots of not so well-to-dos at the bottom.

Today we have to deal with the consequences of past immigration, but we should learn from those consequences with respect to our future immigration policy.

Majority Support Trump’s Initiatives

A poll by McLaughlin & Associates for Secure America Now found that most Americans who are likely voters support President Trump’s recent initiatives on immigration. Fifty-nine percent endorsed his plan to cut federal funds to cities, counties, and states with sanctuary policies, i.e., polices forbidding cooperation with federal immigration law enforcement. Twenty-nine percent opposed the plan. Fifty-seven percent supported his proposed temporary ban travel to the U.S. from terrorist-linked countries. Thirty-seven percent were opposed.

Border Wall a Bargain for Taxpayers

The pro-immigration Reuters News Service reports that President Donald Trump’s proposed wall along the border with Mexico to prevent illegal immigration will cost as much as $21.6 billion and take at least three years to complete.  Reuters said the cost estimate comes from an internal report from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

If the estimate is accurate, the border wall will be a bargain for American taxpayers when compared to the costs of illegal immigration.   With 654 miles of the border already fortified with fencing, completing a barrier along the remaining estimated 1,250 miles will save taxpayers a whopping $64 billion in costs that taxpayers cover for millions of illegal aliens.

Based on estimates from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NAS), each alien crossing illegally into the U.S. from the southern border causes a financial burden of $74,722 during his lifetime (based on taxes paid minus government services used), not including any costs for any children the alien might have while in the U.S.  That means that if a border security barrier stopped only half of the number of illegal aliens currently projected to successfully enter the U.S. over the next ten years, taxpayers would save nearly $64 billion, or three times as much as Reuters’ estimated wall costs.

According to the Center for Immigration Studies, the NAS developed its cost estimates based on the average border-crossing illegal alien’s education level and income earnings in the U.S.  Many other illegal aliens enter the U.S. with legitimate visas but do not leave when the visa expires.  Those aliens often have higher education and income levels to which the NAS estimate does not apply.

Researcher Steven Camarota who calculated the border wall savings, said “a border wall would pay for itself even if it only stops a modest fraction of those expected to successfully cross in the next decade.”

These cost savings from a border wall do not even consider the additional benefits such as preventing the entry of terrorists and drugs.

Trump Wall Would Save $64 Billion Over 10 Years

Savings created by reducing illegal immigration through an effective border wall could save taxpayers more than enough money to pay for the estimated $12 to $15 billion cost of building the wall, according to a new study by the Center for Immigration Studies.  

Because most illegals have low levels of education and earnings, they create far more costs to government than they pay in taxes: the lifetime fiscal impact (taxes paid minus services used) is a fiscal drain of $74,722 for each illegal border-crosser.  The study concludes that the wall would pay for itself if it stopped a mere 9 to 12 percent of attempted crossings.

Nearly 2 Million Hispanic Aliens Illegally Registered to Vote

Many non-citizen Hispanics, as many as 2 million, have illegally registered to vote in the U.S., according to a nationwide poll.  The Washington Times broke this story on Wednesday, which bolsters an analysis by professors at Old Dominion University who say foreigners registered and voted in potentially large numbers.

President Trump’s assertion that voting by aliens was a serious problem has been dismissed by the MSM, which ignored this new evidence.
