The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) reports: “Arrests of families crossing the US-Mexico border illegally in the past five months hit a record…From October through February, border agents arrested 136,150 people traveling in families at the southern border…107,212 people were arrested during the federal fiscal year that ended in September. More than 66,400 people were arrested in February…The numbers were the sharpest evidence yet that, despite Mr. Trump’s efforts to crack down on illegal immigration, the flow of migrants is only growing.” Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan said Tuesday, “This situation is not sustainable. The system is well beyond capacity and remains at the breaking point.”
The Center for Immigration Studies analyzed data released by Immigration and Customs Enforcement. From 2010 to 2016, ICE released 124 aliens who have been charged with 135 new homicides–some have been released multiple times. Data released by ICE indicates that In 2014, ICE released a total of 30,558 criminal aliens, convicted of 92,347 crimes. The total number of new crimes for which these aliens were convicted after ICE released them was 2,560, including: 298 dangerous drug offenses, 185 assaults, 40 weapons offenses, 28 sex offenses, 10 sex assaults, four kidnappings, two arsons, and one homicide. The numbers have escalated since the study. WSJ reports: ” Since 2013, when the US Customs and Border Protection began counting family units, there have been 2.6 million total apprehensions along the US-Mexico border.” These numbers are growing because Marxist Democrats are obstructing national security.
The Bible is very clear about how to handle immigrants. Exodus 22:21 says, “You shall neither vex a stranger, nor oppress him.” This is repeated in Leviticus and Deuteronomy. Exodus 12:49 says, ” One law shall be to him that is home-born, and unto the foreigner who sojourns among you.” This is also repeated in Leviticus and Numbers. One law for all. In this context it is God’s law, but these people neither want to submit to the laws of the nation or to God’s laws. Walls work. Israel has one that suffered the same outcry of racism as it was being built, but suicide bombings decreased by 86% from the sector behind the wall once it was built. Marxists liken the US plan to the Berlin Wall, but the Berlin Wall separated entire families and millions from freedom. Wall or not, America needs the will to protect its citizens.
When the Marxist Democratic Party leadership, such as Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Bernie Sanders (D-VT), and newcomers Alexandria Ocasio-Cortex (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and others say it is immoral to build a wall, it is no difficult task to discern their “morality” is a man-made agenda, not God established. The statistics are overwhelming that there are those among this people group who continue to break the law with not only petty crimes and illegal voting, but with major crimes such as robbery, human trafficking, drug dealing and murder. It is right to consider that socialist politicians have revolution on their minds by vexing law-abiding citizens–A new morality for an old brand of Marxism.
