Only 13% of Americans are aware of the alarming numbers of illegal immigrants arriving every day at the border, but make no mistake, there is a real crisis at our southern border. Approximately 2,000 inadmissible migrants arrive at our border every single day — that’s 60,000 in one month — and it is overwhelming our existing system. ICE has arrested 266,000 illegal immigrants with criminal records in just the last two years. Additionally, 300 Americans die every week from heroin, 90% of which comes across our southern border. The crisis is real and it affects every single American whether you live near the border or not.
Due to their irrational hatred of President Trump, the Democrats refuse to fund the most basic border security needs or to revamp laws that would make it easier to hold, process, and yes, deport those that don’t qualify for asylum. Simply put, Democrats refuse to protect Americans. They fight for illegal immigrants first, not American citizens or legal immigrants. They even oppose HUD prioritizing American citizens over illegals for public housing – though this is the law!
