If you still think President Trump is lying about illegal immigration number rising, you’re incorrect. Despite rhetoric spewed by certain groups on the left and right its evident something is happening down south and it may not be stopped anytime soon. It’s becoming a problem people on the left, middle and right have to face, it’s becoming an epidemic as arrests surge.
The Customs & Border Protection has 1,350 unaccompanied minors in custody, 20% 12 or younger. In overcrowded, unhealthy stations, with no parents which is a travesty any way you look at it. On Monday 3,700 were detained to close out match it’s set to hit nearly 95,000 to 100,000 people.
If people think it’s bad now just wait until it gets in the 90s and 100s degrees. It’s completely unsafe and irresponsible. Granted some may have valid reasons to come here no matter the costs, but attempting to save your life and throwing it away because of hunger and declaration is counterproductive. People will be dropping from the heat before they get to the border. The desert is hot in the summer, please people don’t cross and don’t drag children across with you.
Multiple sources have estimated the number of illegal immigrants in the united states to be over 11.3 million people. Nearly 50% of all illegal immigrants live in three states; New York, Texas, and California. Nearly 75% (8 million+) of the 11.3 million illegal immigrants come from Mexico, Central America, and South America. Look below and see how many illegal immigrants live in your state.
Is the United States in part to blame?
We must look and analyze very carefully why people are fleeing their homelands, not to intervene and make things worse as we’ve done so many times. We’ve made those mistakes historically over and over and never learned anything just look at Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, Lybia, and Syria to name just a few. Moreover, the next question should be why should we be offering temporary sanctuary or permanent citizenship? Are people wanting a better life because some happen to be poor in some cases a reason that is justifiable for citizenship sanctuary or asylum? I don’t know the answer to that.
The United States without a doubt is at fault for much of this besides their domestic policies, it’s their foreign policies that have been detrimental to communities that have worsened things as I mentioned in the countries above. Their foreign policy and drug smuggling from Nicaragua and Columbia or even the Iran Contras are direct results of instability in South America and Central American communities. Interfering in other countries is not a good thing, and I respect trumps take on foreign policy where it borders on being libertarian.
The United States doesn’t understand that taking reapobilty is something we teach our children, and its something we need to practice, that’s a fact. They created the issue with gangs like MS-13. The GANG was created right here in the United States prison system, then we sent them back after they got older but that system for many turned them into violent criminals by the prison system that was suppose to have the opposite effect. If anyone can fix this its Donald Trump, I truly believe that.
