Illegal immigration into the United States is at a crisis point. Democrats know this, but hatred for President Donald J. Trump blinds them from admitting reality and the truth. Democrat hatred for Trump risks harm to the well-being of our country.
On Sunday, November 25, 2018, during an interview on NBC’s "Meet the Press," Congressman Elijah Cummings (D-MD), now Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, stated all migrants should be admitted into the United States, so they can claim asylum. Cummings knew or should have known 9 out of 10 asylum claims are rejected by the Court. The Chairman knows 9 out of 10 aliens, when released in country, do not appear for their immigration hearings. The aliens have a free pass into the United States.
Official DHS figures for the 28-day month of February 2019 established 76,000 foreign nationals were apprehended illegally crossing the Southern U.S. border. This February was one of the coldest along the Southern border in years.
40,385 persons were apprehended as “family units.” In many cases the “parent” or “guardian” is a rented individual for the crossing or the child is rented for the crossing. The smugglers are very creative.
Unaccompanied children (UAC) apprehended illegally crossing the border in February numbered 7,249, with a percentage of the alleged minors actually over 18 years of age. Liberal Federal Judges ruled that UACs be released from DHS custody after 20 days — another free pass.
It is a crime for a foreign national to enter the United States without inspection (8 USC section 1325).
According to Townhall, Nick Miroff, a Washington Post writer, wrote on Twitter that record illegal alien apprehensions were “bonkers” — off the charts.
A New York Times article of March 5, 2019, was headlined, “Border at ‘Breaking Point’ as More than 76,000 Unauthorized Migrants Cross in a Month.” Yet, the article asserts the problem is not uncontrolled masses, but the problem is the thousands of illegal border-crossers surging into remote areas, with the Trump administration failing to devote sufficient resources to care for them.
These events, data, and news articles together with the Congressional opposition to Trump’s Declaration of National Emergency on the Southern Border means more immigration chaos and many thousands more illegal border-crossers.
Overlooked in the ongoing political battles is a significant fact: the disease rate of illegal aliens entering our country.
According to various medical reports, the infectious disease rates of migrants entering the country legally and illegally is alarming.
The Texas Department of State Health Services confirmed 186 cases of mumps of migrants.
More than 90 percent of American children have been vaccinated for measles, mumps, and other childhood diseases. Over the decades, America has wiped out the scourge of measles, mumps, polio, scarlet fever, tuberculosis, chicken pox, and other infectious diseases. Other nations do not have the vaccination rates of the United States, thus they have high numbers of infected persons, especially children.
In the Spring of 2017, Minnesota had its biggest outbreak of measles in decades. The main area of the outbreak was the Somali community. The members of the Somali community were influenced by anti-vaccine activists to avoid vaccinations. However, the measles carrier was likely an illegal migrant, as all legal migrants would have been examined and vaccinated in accordance with USCIS Form I-693.
Form I-693, "Report of Medical Examination and Vaccination Record," is a 13-page DHS document that all legal foreign nationals coming to the United States must complete. Failure to complete and pass the requirements of Form I-693 stops legal entry into the United States. Illegal aliens would not file the form.
If past is prologue, 100,000 or more aliens may rush the Southern border in March. DHS officials question whether they have enough personnel to protect the border from a mass surge of people.
The Democrats claim there is no crisis on the border.
