Each year, illegal Mexican migrant workers send $24,000,000,000.00 (billion) back to Mexico in cash transfers. American employers paid them under the table and off the books with fraudulent identification. They never paid taxes, FICA or Social Security on that money. Their employers wrangled financial murder for the past 40 years. (Source: Annual cash transfers to Mexico, www.PolitoFact.com)
While illegal alien workers transfer THAT much money annually, all legal and illegal immigrants account for $120,000,000,000.00 (billion) sent back to Mexico, South America, Africa and Asia. In other words, immigrants from all countries bleed America financially to death. (Source: Worldwide cash transfers out of America, www.dailymail.co.uk)
At the same time, Mexico smuggles $50 billion annually of drugs into America across a non-guarded, non-existent border. I've traveled the 1,952 mile Mexican-American border three times to witness that it allows anyone at any time to enter the USA in thousands of unguarded locations. (Source: www.DrugAbuse.net)
Those drugs---heroin, cocaine, meth and more---addict and destroy countless American lives. Nixon's 1971 "War on Drugs" proved itself the joke of the century. Too many people in DC benefit from that "war" by making a lot of money and being paid off to make sure it never succeeds. Whether it's the career, corrupt politicians like John McCain, Barbara Boxer, Diane Feinstein, Orrin Hatch, Charles Schumer, Harry Reid or Tom Delay (gone), none of them made any effort to enforce our borders during their 'forever' careers in Congress.
Cash transfers and the drug trade fund and fill the bank accounts of the highest Mexican officials. It's their second highest revenue stream outside of oil.
Worse, all American officials from Congressional Representatives to Senators KNOW it's been going on for 40 years. Many of them benefit from it; that's why you don't ever see them speaking up like Congressman Tom Tancredo (R-CO) spoke 15 years ago and suffered the scourge of Congress and presidents.
In reality, money drives the under-the-table financial crimes that line the big leaders' pockets. They're so crooked and so entrenched; they know they cannot be touched. A few face prosecution like Tom Delay of Texas or Dennis Hastert, former Speaker of the House.
British Lord Acton said, "Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely."
That's why we need term limits for all government officials. Ten years maximum in the Senate and House. We need new ideas and thinkers, not old men and women who are out of touch with America. Does anyone think that 83-year-old Diane Feinstein knows what's going on in America? Or, the troglodyte 80 year old John McCain? It's absurd to allow them 40-year terms in office when they prove themselves unable or unwilling to serve the American people. Nancy Pelosi of California and Harry Reid of Nevada much the same!
They're the ones that got us into this mess along with their career corrupt colleagues.
Given our $20,000,000,000,000.00 (trillion) debt, the wall appears to be a sound fiscal project. It would pay for itself inside of a year.
A wall-impregnable fence system would stop 500,000 illegal aliens from violating our borders annually. A wall-impregnable fence system would stop them. (Source: www.cis.org, Dr. Steve Camarata, "500,000 illegals cross border annually")
It would also stop illegal alien costs across 15 federal agencies for education, medical care, food stamps, etc. at $113,000,000.00 (billion) annually. (Source: www.TheSocialContract.com, Costs of illegal immigration.)
According to www.DrugAbuse.net, by cutting off the drug trade with a guarded wall-fence, the Trump administration could prevent:
* The Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) makes over 30,000 arrests each year related to the sales and distribution of illegal narcotics.
Over 32 percent of all inmates in state prisons in the United States were either under the influence of drugs or in possession of drugs when arrested (that number is above 25 percent for federal prison inmates).
Drug trafficking in Mexico is a business worth over $50 billion per year.
It is believed that the loss of the drug trafficking industry in Mexico would cause that country's economy to shrink by over 63 percent.
* 13 teens die every hour from drug and alcohol abuse in the USA.
Illicit drug use causes many forms of death in the United States, including suicide, homicide, motor-vehicle injury, HIV infection, violence, mental illness and hepatitis. Ironically, prescription drugs kill 105,000 Americans annually via adverse reactions as prescribed by medical doctors.
In other words, in the name of personal gain, your Congressional representatives from Congressmen-women to Senators refused to enforce our borders or our drug laws since 1971. The Drug War remains a standing joke, while top guns in high places make billions of dollars. Again, Mexico makes $50 billion annually.
The Drug War cost you, the taxpayer, trillions of dollars since 1971 and it's imprisoned 37,000,000 (million) Americans for smoking a joint, shooting heroin or inhaling cocaine. But it's hasn't stopped anyone, ever, from using drugs. It's a medical problem; not a criminal problem.
No wonder so many in high places pummeled Trump. He plans to upset their financial gravy train.
Should we spend American taxpayer dollars to build a wall-impregnable fence system?
Answer: what do you think? What makes sense to you? What makes sensible use of your tax dollars?
Our kids deserve drug-free starts in life. Our citizens deserve drug-free communities. Our citizens deserve jobs at living wages instead of 500,000 illegal aliens jumping our borders annually and stealing our employment for our adults and youths. Our citizens deserve to speak and hear English, not Spanish. Our citizens deserve to pay for their own babies, not pay for 350,000 "anchor babies" by pregnant illegal alien Mexican mothers that live on our dollars for the next 18 years.
We American citizens grow sick and tired of helping everyone else in the world while we do all the work and suffer all the debt. We're sick of being abused by our own presidents and Congress.
