The Real Cost of Illegal Immigration to America, and the Immigrants

I did graduate from high school. I have dedicated my life to learning. I enjoy studying the various philosophies and their impact.

The Price Paid by Americans and the Illegal/Undocumented Immigrant.

The undocumented immigrant, that have come to this country to make a better life for themselves, and their families, even though they are covered by State or Federal fair labor, and minimum wage laws, they do not complain. What is the upside to filing a grievance? None. If they file a grievance.

They take the risk that their employer will report them to ICE, or ICE agents will take the initiative and deport. No upside. Result, employers take advantage of their undocumented status, forcing them to work long hours, usually under unsafe conditions and more times than not, they are paid less than minimum wage with no overtime pay. Basically, they are treated as slave labor with no Health care. By taking these jobs, it denies U. S. Citizens and Legal Immigrants from taking those same jobs at better pay, state mandated benefits, and better working conditions.

If these individuals get sick, or die. No worries, their are literally thousands of future slaves coming coming into this country every day. By the way, our Southern Border was recently declared, by the U. N. Council on Human Rights, to be the most dangerous land border crossing in the World. I get no feelings of pride out of that. Do you?

So-called Sanctuary Cities

there are cities all over America that have had the local governments pass legislation designating themselves as 'Sanctuary Cities'. This designation is based on a very Liberal interpretation of Numbers 35 verse 13. But when you look at verse 12, you understand why they were seeking refuge.

  • Numbers 35:12 (NIV)

    They will be places of refuge from the avenger, so that anyone accused of murder may not die before they stand trial before the assembly.

You realize it has nothing to do with Sojourners. This also explains how Liberals pervert the Bible to promote their agenda.

Taking a look at these Sanctuary Cities, and States, you soon realize, in a lot ways, they are very similar to each other.

  1. Crime rate-very high, Why? DA's that refuse to prosecute crimes and judges who are very lenient on sentencing those who are prosecuted and convicted of crimes.
  2. Unemployment Rate-higher than the Federal Average-Why? there is a mass exodus of job creating income from the state.
  3. Homelessness, % of population, higher than the Federal Average-Why? see answers to 2, 4, 5, and 6..
  4. Illegal Drug use, higher-Why? Sense of despair among younger people.
  5. Percentage of high school drop-outs, higher, why? These kids realize they're getting indoctrinated, not educated, drop out and become a statistic under 1,2,3,4, and 7.
  6. Percentage of functionally illiterate high school graduates, higher, why? Same as no. 5.
  7. Murder Rate, higher, why? ALL OF THE ABOVE!!!!

I could include quiet a lot on this list, but this is not why I am writing this article.

I think they call themselves a 'Sanctuary City' so they can use these undocumented immigrants as cheap/slave labor in there 5-star hotels and restaurants, and in other menial labor positions like janitors and other positions. Many of these elitist will also take advantage of them in other ways, as well. If I include those ways in this article, management will block advertises.

What of Those who have Alterior Motives for Coming to this Country?

According to the Washing Times, an all-time record was set when 15 individuals on the FBIs Terrorist Screening Database (TSDB) were caught at our Southern Border in May of this year, this is equal to the entire year of 2021, and more than the combined totals from 2017 to 2020.

Individuals Caught at Southern Border with Criminal Record.

In FY2016 there were 12,842 apprehensions of individuals with criminal convictions on our Southern Border. By the end of FY2020, that number had dropped to 2,438. By April 13, 2021 that number had more than doubled to 5,018. What happened in 2021 that caused this drastic increase? President Joe Biden, through Executive Order, ended many of the Trump policies that had been proven effective in slowing the number of Undocumented Immigrants crossing our Southern Border. He also dismantled several hundred miles of the nearly completed Border fence, there are other policies instituted by President Biden that have also contributed this rise.


I have Solutions, and I Believe it Would Prove to be Cost Effective in the Long Term.

Comprehensive and complete immigration facilities located at strategic locations along our Southern Border. Services at these facilities would include a complete and comprehensive background check, complete and comprehensive medical exam, investigators to verify the claims of asylum seekers, and immigration agents to issue Immigration Visas and Green Cards to those who meet all requirements for Immigration into this Country.

Give these new immigrants up to five years to meet all necessary requirements become Citizens.

Upon conviction of any State or Federal crime, they become eligible for immediate deportation and ineligible to reapply to enter the Country.
