Illegal immigration is a serious problem in the United States. While the former White House administration did nothing but aide the problem the Trump administration is working to take care of the problem by cracking down and implementing stricter regulations. The days of catch and release are long gone. While this will make many American citizens happy there are some statistics that will make others happy as well.
The Right Wing Tribune reported,
“Federal officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) arrested 78 criminal aliens and immigration violators in five Midwest states during a six-day enforcement action, which ended Friday.
Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO)Officers made the following arrests during the operation:
- 25 Illegals in Iowa
- 25 Illegal Aliens in Nebraska
- 15 illegal Aliens in Minnesota
- 10 Illegal Aliens in South Dakota
- 3 Illegal Aliens in North Dakota
78 total were arrested and out of the 78, 62 had criminal convictions already and out of the 78, 72 of the illegals were men and 6 were female, ages ranging from 20 to 64. Illegal Aliens arrested during this operation are from the following nine countries: Mexico (35), El Salvador (15), Guatemala (11), Honduras (10), Ethiopia (2), South Sudan (2), Kenya (1), Ivory Coast (1) and Sudan (1).
The illegal aliens arrested showed prior criminal histories that included convictions for the following crimes: Assault, arson, r**e, s*x assault on a child, solicitation of a child, domestic assault against a child, prostitution-hiring a child age 13-16, felony theft, felony forgery, prostitution, manufacturing false documents, identity theft, hit and run, distributing a controlled substance, driving while intoxicated (DUI), drug possession, indecent exposure, domestic assault, illegal sale of a weapon, criminal impersonation, possessing drugs with intent to sell, burglary, malicious prosecution, illegal re-entry after deportation and witness intimidation.
All of the targets in this operation were amenable to arrest and removal under the U.S. Immigration and Nationality Act. “This operation targeted criminal aliens, public safety threats, and individuals who have violated our nation’s immigration laws. Operations like this reflect the vital work our ERO officers do every day to protect our communities, uphold public safety and protect the integrity of our immigration laws and border controls. We will continue to devote the full efforts of our agency to protecting citizens and enforcing federal immigration law. Communities across the upper Midwest are safer today because of the hard work of the men and women of ERO.” ~ Peter Berg, field office director for ICE ERO.
As you can see, these illegal aliens are nothing but scumbags that do not offer anything to society. We need to continue to cleanse out the illegal alien criminals and send them back to their “home” nations. Our national security is vital and our borders are an extreme weakness at the moment, it is time to acknowledge the urgent threat and shut it down and shut it down now!”
Illegal immigration has been a headline issue recently also because of the President’s recent comments referring to MS-13 gang members as animals. CBS News reported,
“The president also called some illegal immigrants not human, but “animals,” after Fresno’s sheriff expressed the difficulty in capturing and punishing illegal immigrants accused of crimes, such as members of the MS-13 gang. The conversation was in the context of criminal illegal immigrants who evade the law.
“We have people coming into the country, or trying to come in — and we’re stopping a lot of them — but we’re taking people out of the country,” Mr. Trump said. ” You wouldn’t believe how bad these people are. These aren’t people. These are animals. And we’re taking them out of the country at a level and at a rate that’s never happened before. And because of the weak laws, they come in fast, we get them, we release them, we get them again, we bring them out. It’s crazy.”
On Thursday, White House press secretary said Mr. Trump “was very clearly referring to MS-13 gang members” who enter the country illegally when he made those comments. Sanders criticized media coverage of the president’s remarks as lacking context. “Frankly, I think that the term ‘animal’ doesn’t go far enough,” she added.”
Illegal aliens and gang members are animals and the President was right. And so was his Press Secretary. It is an absolute disgrace when illegal aliens roam free in the United States while law-abiding citizens wait to come to the United States and are struggling through the process. Laws are in place for a specific reason as well they should be. People should not be incentivized to remain in the United States or come here illegally but that is what has been done in the past.
