According to the Washington Examiner during Obama’s Presidency illegal immigrants have entered the US at the rate of 400,000 a year, with 790,000 having entered the country since mid-2013.[read_more]
With these huge numbers of illegals rushing into the country, is it any wonder why Trump is now the number one choice for President among Republican candidates?
Some highlights from a study done by the Center for Migration Studies and the Pew Research Center:
— Had the United States not allowed so many new illegal immigrants to settle in the country since 2009, the total number of illegal immigrants would have fallen by 2.5 million. But the arrival of so many new illegal immigrants offset this attrition in the illegal population.
— While the level of new illegal immigration is lower than a decade ago, the enormous ongoing scale of illegal immigration is a clear indication that the United States has not come close to controlling it.
— Prior research indicates that roughly half a million illegal immigrants return home on their own each year, are deported, die, or get permanent residence. Those who get legal status each year are not beneficiaries of the president’s administrative amnesty known as DACA — which does not give permanent residence, but does provide Social Security numbers, work authorization, and identity documents. Rather it has been long-standing policy to allow those who violate immigration laws to still get green cards (permanent residency) if they qualify in one of the legal immigration categories such as marrying a U.S. citizen.
Why is The Donald the only Presidential candidate who is addressing this rather large problem in a way that resonates with voters?
Imagine how well our economy would be doing without this massive influx of illegal immigrants every year. Wages would be up and unemployment would be down. Think too about how much money we would save on all the services that we provide these millions of illegal immigrants. Our country is paying a huge price for this influx of poor people from Central America.
We’re all waiting for the candidate who gives us the solution to the problem.
