Do Democrats like San Fran Nan and their media sycophants still caterwaul about the “manufactured border crisis” anymore? Haven’t heard that phrase much from them lately, particularly after those poor Mormon women and children were massacred by Mexican cartel sicarios the other day. But then that claim never did measure up to the facts, especially when considering crime statistics and costs associated with the massive invasion of illegal aliens.

Besides those Mormons, we also know about the tragedies of the angel parents whose children were killed by illegals – many of whom were repeat offenders. The legacy media take turns ignoring and disparaging angel families, frequently referring to them as political props for the Trump administration. Here is one example.

Gutless San Fran Nan even refused to meet with a group of Angel Moms because the political optics would not support her narrative of no funding for a border wall, as noted here.

She’s got impeachment on her mind these days and can’t be bothered with doing the country’s business, including providing for the safety and security of Americans impacted by the flood of illegal aliens from Mexico.

Here is an excellent website that keeps a running tab of serious crimes committed by illegal aliens in the US. Recommend you browse through the various categories on a periodic basis and prepare to be enraged! It is a great resource that Americans who are concerned about illegal alien crimes against Americans should regularly visit to stay informed because the legacy media will continue to obfuscate these crimes in service of the globalist Democrats’ open borders agenda.


To get further into the weeds of crimes perpetrated by illegal aliens, here is an abstract of a report by John Lott for the Crime Prevention Research Center on Arizona criminal statistics. Read this carefully, and the extrapolate the numbers for the rest of the US. This information is shocking and virtually unknown by most Americans because the legacy media avoid this topic like the plague!

Using newly released detailed data on all prisoners who entered the Arizona state prison from January 1985 through June 2017, we are able to separate non-U.S. citizens by whether they are illegal or legal residents. Unlike other studies, these data do not rely on self-reporting of criminal backgrounds. Undocumented immigrants are at least 142% more likely to be convicted of a crime than other Arizonans. They also tend to commit more serious crimes and serve 10.5% longer sentences, more likely to be classified as dangerous, and 45% more likely to be gang members than U.S. citizens.

Yet, there are several reasons that these numbers are likely to underestimate the share of crime committed by undocumented immigrants. There are dramatic differences between in the criminal histories of convicts who are U.S. citizens and undocumented immigrants.

Young convicts are especially likely to be undocumented immigrants. While undocumented immigrants from 15 to 35 years of age make up slightly over two percent of the Arizona population, they make up about eight percent of the prison population. Even after adjusting for the fact that young people commit crime at higher rates, young undocumented immigrants commit crime at twice the rate of young U.S. citizens. These undocumented immigrants also tend to commit more serious crimes.


If undocumented immigrants committed crime nationally as they do in Arizona, in 2016 they would have been responsible for over 1,000 more murders, 5,200 rapes, 8,900 robberies, 25,300 aggravated assaults, and 26,900 burglaries.

Here is the latest grisly discovery near the border:

Mexican authorities reported the discovery of a mass grave containing at least 10 bodies on the outskirts of a popular tourist port city 60 miles south of Arizona. The Saturday unearthing occurred outside Puerto Peñasco, also known as Rocky Point.

Investigative personnel from the state attorney general’s office working with a group of volunteers located the mass grave, according to local reports. Madres Buscadoras de Sonora is a group made of mothers searching for their missing children. Most are believed kidnapped and murdered by local organized crime.

How many more of these outrageous crimes – preventable by a real Border Wall and tight immigration law enforcement – does it take to make a real border crisis, San Fran Nan? Isn’t it a shame that Democrats never seem to suffer personally for their schemes?

And then there are all of those fake social security numbers used by illegal aliens during Obama’s second term. One wonders whether politically corrupted federal bureaucrats handed them out given what we’ve learned about Obama-era federal corruption!


Nearly 40 million Social Security numbers have been stolen and used by illegal immigrants and others to get work, according to agency records obtained by an immigration reform group. The Immigration Reform Law Institute said that from 2012 to 2016 there were “39 million instances where names and Social Security numbers on W-2 tax forms did not match the corresponding Social Security records.” The group said that there is a “thriving black market” used by illegal immigrants to get Social Security numbers needed to get a job.

Read the rest here. If you or I were to falsify a social security number and try to get through the tax year, we would get hammered. The computer system at IRS would note our false uses and double uses (folks using stolen SSNs) and track us down to our homes or places of business and treat us like serious criminals. I truly believe that the fake SSNs and stolen numbers in play are ignored on purpose. Illegals are ALLOWED to get away with it and weaken the system. The Finance Center knows every use of fake/stolen SSNs and can track down anyone via the banking/money transfer grid. Terrorists and narcotics traffickers have been tracked this way for years; we can track illegal aliens, too. I mean, the system is pretty much on autopilot. You just have to ask for the data – which is automatically collected and archived.


As an aside, according to sources, DHS has name and location data on a whole lot of illegals – many of whom are connected to terror groups – yet does not even give that info to agencies responsible for policing such persons. More carry-over of Obama-era political corruption!

Who knows how much illegal alien criminal activity is costing America in terms of law enforcement resources expended, losses of life and limb, and lost economic opportunity for US citizens? Per the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), the 2017 costs borne by the US for illegal aliens was $115B, as broken down in this graphic:

FAIR’s complete report, “The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration On United States Taxpayers (2017),” can be found here.

Thousands of serious crimes committed annually, loss of precious lives, hemorrhaging tax dollars at all levels of government, negative economic impact, flood of illegal drugs, human trafficking. Plus, who knows how many sleeper terrorists have crossed the southern border during the past two or three decades?

Folks, there truly *is* a border crisis, and not a “manufactured one,” just as the President has stated. It is criminal that Democrats and their paid legacy media sycophants are more concerned about the welfare of illegal aliens than they are about the safety and security of Americans. The President is right that the Wall needs to be built posthaste, come hell or high water, and we need to pressure our elected representatives to fully fund its construction.


The end.
