Facts, Figures And Statistics On Illegal Immigration

How You Can Take Action

On being elected and sworn in, the President took an oath:

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.

And the members of congress took an oath:

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.

The immigrants who founded this country did so on a principal that:

We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its Foundation on such Principles, and organizing its Powers in such Form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

Declaration of Independence

Note the declaration that all people have the right to "Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness" and that it is the Government's responsibility to organize in such a way to "most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness" but not to actually provide it.

This principal was further established in the U.S. Constitution of the United States which begins:

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution then states:

The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union a republican form of government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and on application of the legislature, or of the executive (when the legislature cannot be convened) against domestic violence.

Unfortunately in our politically correct era, "invasion" and "domestic violence" are now parsed with the word "is." Regardless, our republican principals are being ignored, our borders are being trampled, our laws broken, our sovereignty violated, and our nation is under attack from outside peoples, foreign nationals, who are committing more and more domestic violence, denying citizens Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness, as well as both Safety and Happiness.

The Government's US Border Patrol and Immigration and Customs Enforcement currently allow far more illegal aliens to sneak in and remain than are apprehended and sent back. The enforcement is so spotty and the borders are so porous that more than 60% of the ones deported return. While there are a lot of good people in DHS and ICE trying to do their job, they are grossly undermanned and ill-equipped for the task and the Justice Department often sides with the illegal alien criminals against Americans trying to enforce the law.

For one of the more abominable stories on a gross miscarriage of justice along the southern borders see, the WND article, 2 Border Patrol agents face 20 years in prison, where the illegal alien drug runner wins a lawsuit lottery and Border Patrol agents Ramos and Compean get sent to prison for simply trying to do their job. President Bush will pardon convicted drug dealers but, as of the writing of this report, not two law enforcement officers whose only mistake, other than trusting that DHS and the Justice Dept. to put more credence on their testimony rather than that of an illegal alien drug smuggler, appears to be procedural. Unfortunately as Ballistics data don't support charge against border agents notes, the DHS may be far more negligent than one would believe.

In fact, it often seems that the only people doing anything constructive are various anti-immigration citizen's groups, such as the Minutemen, and our immigration and enforcement policies are so broken that U.S. Border Patrol sometimes appears to be on the side of Mexico and "migrant's rights" rather than enforcing the sanctity of our borders and protecting the safety of the American people.

How outrageous does the situation need to be before real action is taken?

How many more Americans must be ripped off, infected, molested, raped, killed, and murdered by illegal aliens before something is done about it?

In considering the solutions to the problem as detailed in this paper, what is the proper attitude to have towards illegal aliens?

How about:

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American. There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag. We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language. And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

President Teddy Roosevelt – 1907

Or as former US Congresswoman Barbara Jordan from Texas (1973-1979) put it:

"... those who should get in, get in; those who should be kept out, are kept out; and those who should not be here will be required to leave."

This is what the attitude and responsibility of the Government should be. However, the Government is "we the people" so we have a responsibility to insist that the Government fulfill their mandated responsibilities and protect the people.

Therefore, what action should YOU take?

One of the very first things to do is reread this report again and know what the collateral damage of illegal immigration is and the terrible costs we as a people and nation are paying. In this process, you might have to follow many of the links and do your own research before it really sinks in.

While you are rereading, memorize this line:

Exactly how many Americans are YOU are willing to allow to be infected, molested, raped, killed, and murdered by illegal aliens to save ten cents on a head of lettuce?

This puts the cost-benefit argument into a simple equation. What is the life of an American worth?

A serious border fence that will prevent new illegal aliens from coming in, as well as the 60% or so of deported criminals from returning, will cost about $4 billion to build and around $850 million a year to patrol and maintain. How many American lives is that worth?

This paper gives you indications of the numbers of Americans that are being sacrificed on the altar of illegal immigration. In discussions with others who don't believe illegal immigration is a problem, remember how the angel talked with Abraham in discussing whether Sodom and Gomorrah could be prevented from being destroyed. (Genesis 18:23-33) What person or politician in their right mind is going to say that it is okay for 100 kids to be molested? Are they going to admit that it is acceptable that 250 women be raped or 1,000 Americans killed? Exactly how much collateral damage will they accept?

You now know that the collateral damage is FAR HIGHER than anything any reasonable person would say is acceptable so you can easily nail their sorry "victimless crime" and "only doing the work Americans won't do" arguments to the wall.

You can personally discourage more illegal immigration by boycotting companies that are actively supporting illegal immigration. Miller Brewing, Home Depot, Ford, and Wells Fargo Bank are four that come to mind. You might check with We Hire Aliens and the Funding Hate list on We Hate Gringos for more. These companies are pandering to illegal aliens simply to increase their bottom line profit and they don't give a damn about the consequences.

A wise man once said "The love of money is the root of all evil." How true that is in the case of illegal immigration. Companies are selling out the United States and taking advantage of desperate people all for the sake of more profit.

You don't have to be complicit so find other companies to do business with that put America over profit. Loosing customers because of their poor decision may force them to rethink their decision. In any case, be sure to contact the companies you are boycotting and let them know of your decision.

You also don't want to be banking at institutions that accept the Marticular ID cards and other bogus identification. To see if your bank does, as well as ones that don't, go to US Banks that accept Illegal Alien IDs. If your bank is not on the list –ask. When you change your financial institution, be sure to let them know why.

Learn what the pro-illegal immigration crowd is saying. As a start, What the Pro "Illegal Immigrant Groups" DON'T want you to know has some commentary on many of their arguments with some rebuttals. You might also note the National Council of LaRaza's Talking Points for Members of Congress and compare that with what your state's members are saying. In fact spend some time on the National Council of La Raza site and peruse some of the articles on their Immigration Debate.

When you do so, you will note that in the more recent pictures of the "rallies" that all the Mexican flags and anti-American signs have "disappeared" and now only American flag-waving illegal aliens are represented. This is high power public relations at work. Keep in mind that La Raza means "the race" and their motto is "Por La Raza todo, Fuera de La Raza nada!" Which means "For the Race, everything, for those outside the Race, nothing!"

Try doing that with a minority Irish-American group in LA!

When talking to various pro-illegal immigration supporters, as well as you congressional members, always keep in mind:

Exactly how many Americans are YOU are willing to allow to be infected, molested, raped, killed, and murdered by illegal aliens to save ten cents on a head of lettuce?

as this will destroy anything they have to say other than sputtering rhetoric.

As this report documents, the collateral damage is extensive and rising. Therefore, tell all your friends and family about the hidden costs of illegal immigration which is impacting them as well as the personal collateral damage that is affecting multitudes of Americans and which can potentially affect them. Also send or summarize this report so they can investigate the facts and data themselves. The SUMMARY OF COLLATERAL DAMAGE section of this report has a lot of the carnage and costs in bullet-like form.

Contact your local media and ask that they investigate the various issues and report on the collateral damage that is occurring and being inflicted in your area. An old adage of the MSM is "if it bleeds, it leads" so you need to frame the issue in a way that gets their attention. Unfortunately there is a lot of bleeding and dying occurring on the altar of illegal immigration but it is not being reported. You may have to help them connect the dots.

Most newspapers will still print letters to the editor on the subject. Try to include data on the collateral damage from your local area. This will require research. In any case, remember, we are not against a reasonable amount of legal immigration from people of any race, ethnic group or nationality but we are against illegal immigration of people from any race, ethnic group or nationality.

Contact you city, county, and state law enforcement agencies and the powers that control them. Ask them if they are participating in the ICE 287(g) Immigration Enforcement program. If not, why not? See the report by Peter Onge in the The Charlotte Observer, An Eye On Illegal Immigrants - Mecklenburg Sheriff Signs on to Federal Program to Find, Deport Violators, as to WHY your local law enforcement agencies should be participating.

Be sure to ask them:

Exactly how many Americans are YOU are willing to allow to be infected, molested, raped, killed, and murdered by illegal aliens to save ten cents on a head of lettuce?

If there is any hope to control the unfettered illegal immigration tsunami, the Department of Homeland Security has to get tough. Very tough. Unfortunately with the changing of the guard in the 2006 elections, the DHS may become more illegal alien friendly unless you act and act fast. As noted in a November 28, 2006 article in The Washington Times by Jerry Seper, Cintas warned against firing immigrant force:

"A Mississippi Democrat in line to become chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee has warned the nation's largest uniform supplier it faces criminal charges if it follows a White House proposal to recheck workers with mismatched Social Security numbers and fire those who cannot resolve the discrepancy in 60 days.

Rep. Bennie Thompson said in a letter to Cintas Corp. it could be charged with "illegal activities in violation of state and federal law" if any of its 32,000 employees are terminated because they gave incorrect Social Security numbers to be hired."

However, there may be some hope for Rep. Thompson properly discharging his constitutionally directed duties as he recently released a press release "applauding the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in executing civil search warrants at six facilities owned by Swift & Company as part of a worksite enforcement investigation."

In any case, contact Representative Thompson and encourage him to do even more. To e-mail his staff, go here. Go to here for the majority members of the House Homeland Security Committee.

It also wouldn't hurt to contact all the members of the Congressional Black Caucus, of which Rep Thompson is a member, and point out to them that illegal immigration hurts Black Americans the most. Ditto with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus – illegal immigration hurts their constituents!

Finally, contact your members of Congress and state government and ask them:

Exactly how many Americans are YOU are willing to allow to be infected, molested, raped, killed, and murdered by illegal aliens to save ten cents on a head of lettuce?

If you don't know how your state's members of Congress stand on immigration, you can get an idea at Americans for Better Immigration's Report Card, United States Immigration Reform PAC, and the Politicians tab on Secured Borders USA. Go here to see if your city is a "sanctuary city."

You can identify and get contact information for your state's Congressional Representative here.

You can identify and get contact information for your state's Congressional Senators here.

You can identify and e-mail all congressional staff members here.

You can also identify your congressional officials and find all local media here.

You can ID Local, State, Congressional and Federal Agency officials here.

While some of these sites will let you send an automated message via fax or e-mail, it is more effective if you look up the name and e-mail of the person you want to voice your opinion to and call or send them a personal e-mail. If you are new to all this, you might first want t read How To Communicate With Public Officials for some ideas and suggestions on how to be more effective in making your voice and opinion heard.

You will especially want to contact all members of both the US House Subcommittee on Immigration, Border Security, and Claims and the Senate Immigration, Border Security and Citizenship.

As detailed in a 2006 Zogby poll, previously noted in the WHAT TO DO section of this report, the vast majority of Americans want something done about out of control immigration and overwhelmingly prefer the House's approach. You would not know this listening to the MSM.

As noted in Toughness on immigration did NOT cost candidates their election, "11.5% of all Republican seats in Congress were lost as Democrats took back control of Congress but only 6.7% of the Members of Tancredo's Immigration Reform Caucus lost their seats."

Also in the politically correct climate of the day with all the pandering to potential Hispanic voters from both political parties, even if for different reasons - the NAU & SPP not withstanding - it is worth remembering that in the November 2006 election in Arizona, as reported in Hispanics help pass laws against illegals, "All four of Arizona's anti-illegal immigration propositions passed by wide margins - and, perhaps surprisingly, several surveys showed that between 40 percent and 50 percent of Hispanics voted for them." Arizona's English only language proposition 103 passed with 74% of the vote.

It wouldn't hurt to mention all three facts because the MSM has been portraying it the other way.

How many Americans is it tolerable to be infected, molested, raped, killed, and murdered by illegal aliens to save ten cents on a head of lettuce?

Sign up on Grassfire's STOP the INVASION petition. Then go to Secured Borders USA and download the individual petition that must be notarized and mailed. As of the writing of this report Secured Borders currently has over 12,000,000 individually notarized petitions. Their goal is to collect 50,000,000 notarized petitions and deliver them in mass to Congress. The petition states:

Then get all your family, neighbors and co-workers, who are feed up with what is going on and shocked by the collateral damage, to sign the petitions.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! It is time to stop the collateral damage being inflicted on American citizens as a result of The Dark Side of Illegal Immigration..
