Build the Wall
What is a Nation?
A nation is a group of people with a common identity that they do not share with others. They have mutual ancestors, heroes, history, culture, traditions, customs, and language. Globalism aims to eliminate nations and erase all borders. Globalists intend to rule the world through unelected ‘experts.’ They promote unlimited legal and illegal migration of Third World Peoples into America and Europe – to rip apart those bonds that tie nations together.
A country has a right to establish and defend its borders. The first duty of a state is to protect its citizens within its borders. Fundamental to this duty is to have and enforce laws concerning who can cross your boundaries, and who can move into your country to stay by becoming a citizen. Those who would sneak into your country by illegally crossing its border show disdain for your country and its citizens. If you can violate immigration law with impunity, why should you obey any laws?
Democrats Want Open Borders
Democrats want Open Borders, declares the New York Times: “The existing border wall must be torn down so that anyone can freely enter the United States. Criminal sanctions on illegal entry must be repealed. Illegal aliens living in America must be made citizens and given the right to vote in our national elections.”
AOC says all Latinos have the right to come live in America because they descend from native peoples, and the USA sits on entirely native lands. She favors a "Reconquista" war against Americans to take California, New Mexico, Arizona, and Texas. AOC says immigration laws should not apply to the 550,000,000 Latinos who live south of our border.
Notice that invaders come carrying the flags of the nations from which they flee instead of our flag where they seek refuge. They celebrate the countries they left but hold America in contempt, shouting, “Uncle Sam Stole Our Land!” At an Open Borders protest in California, a banner read: “If you think I’m illegal because I’m a Mexican, learn the true history because I’m in my homeland.” One activist said, “If 50 million of my people come here, we can take our land back.”
Walls Are Good
Walls are good. Had it not been for walls, Christendom would not have survived the onslaught of Islam, notably during the Muslim sieges of Vienna in 1529 and 1683. In 1456, 6,000 Christian soldiers successfully defended the walls of Belgrade from a Muslim army of 50,000. In 1565 the walls of the Grand Harbor in Malta enabled fewer than 7,000 Christians to withstand an assault by 50,000 Muslims. And yes, the Vatican is surrounded by the Leonine Walls, 40 feet high and 12 feet thick, erected by St. Leo IV in 850 to defend against the Muslims.
Wealthy Americans live behind walls that surround their property or gated communities. They know that walls work. That's why military bases, government buildings, and the Obama home have them.
Chad Wolf declares, “Walls work. They’re an undeniable impediment to human smugglers, drug traffickers, and other criminals who have exploited our lack of effective border infrastructure. Looking at wall construction historically, we see that when walls go up, illegal apprehensions and illegal crossings go down. A wall system went up in San Diego; illegal crossings went down 27%. A wall system went up in Tucson; illegal crossings went down 24%. In Yuma, Arizona, when the wall system went up, illegal crossings in that area decreased by over 78%. The facts simply do not lie.”
Today, 65 countries have built or are building new walls to prevent unwanted migrants from entering the country. Morocco built a 1,700-mile wall. Saudi Arabia has a 560-mile barrier against Iraq. Turkey has a 90-mile bulwark against Iran, is planning a barrier against Iraq, and has a 566-mile wall on its border with Syria. Hungary has a 110-mile, 13-foot-high fence against Serbia. There is a 2,500-mile barbed wire fence between India and Pakistan. Hungary built a wall, and illegal border crossings dropped 99.6% from 391,384 to 1,418.
Even the far left-wing extremists at the NY Times admit Israel's Wall has been an incredible success, stopping 99% of illegal border crossings, dropping from 16,000 a year to about 20. Israel built a security barrier against the West Bank, and terrorism decreased by 90%. Egypt constructed a wall on its border with Gaza. Slovenia erected one to block an invasion by illegal aliens. Iran is building one to stop drug smuggling from Pakistan. Iraq has constructed one along its border with Syria. France has too built a barricade on part of its borders, specifically to control illegal immigration. Lithuania has put up a wall along its borders with Russia. Estonia, same thing. Norway constructed a barricade along its frontier with Russia to stem illegal immigration.
Except for Antarctica, there are partial or completed border barriers all over the world today. The past three years have seen almost 1,000 miles of border barriers built on various European borders. All of this wall building is the opposite of the Berlin Wall, erected by Socialists to keep its citizens from leaving, not to keep invaders out.
A wall now separates Bulgaria from Turkey. Saudi Arabia constructed a 47-mile barrier along its border with Yemen, has erected a steel wall against Kuwait, and is working on a 600-mile-long “Great Wall” on its border with Iraq. Next, the Saudis will build a moat on its border with Qatar. Kenya is working on a 440-mile barrier from Somalia. The United States paid for a 125-mile barrier between Tunisia and Libya.
India is building a 2,116-mile barbed-wire border barrier against Bangladesh, topped with flood lamps. The lamps are there so that the guards can see. They are armed, and they will shoot intruders on sight. In fact, in most countries, defense of the border is backed by firepower. While America has less than 20,000 border guards, India has 257,363 of them, divided into military battalions.
The Purpose of the Wall
One problem at America's southern border is the sheer volume of illegal aliens who pour across it. They include countless criminals and gang members, and not a few terrorists. Also, a massive amount of drugs come across, as well as disease. Add to that a crisis of human smuggling and sex slavery. However, the United States spends ten times more money to provide border security for other countries than we pay to protect our southern border.
In 2019, 859,000 people were caught trying to sneak into our country. At least 150,000 successfully snuck in. This goes on year after year. Among those apprehended were more than 16,000 criminals, with convictions ranging from sex crimes to homicide to drug trafficking. Border patrol stopped 1,200 gang members and confiscated 1,700 weapons. Close to a million pounds of marijuana, heroin, methamphetamine, cocaine, and fentanyl are seized each year along the border. The fact is Mexico is a failed state run by drug cartels.
At least twenty million illegal aliens are living in America. There are 1,700,000 Central American Illegal Aliens residing in the United States who have been ordered deported but refuse to leave, including 574,170 from Mexico, 446,551 from El Salvador, 380,912 from Guatemala, 339,443 from Honduras. Sanctuary cities protect them.
Illegal Aliens and Anchor Babies
Democrats try to claim that the only opposition to illegal immigration is racism. That is a lie. Americans would be just as opposed to tens of millions of Russians sneaking into our country. People from 72 countries have been nabbed trying sneak into America this year, including from 19 nations in Africa. Chinese nationals represent the largest migrant group currently being apprehended, outside of Mexican and Central American migrants.
Three hundred thousand anchor babies are born to illegal aliens every year. They are immediately rewarded American citizenship simply because their foreign parents delivered them in the parameters of the nation’s borders. Today, there are at least 5 million anchor babies in the United States.
Immigrants should not come to America unless they love America and want to become Americans. They should not come here to live off of American taxpayers, with a sense of entitlement, and certainly not with a sense of grievance in their hearts.
Hordes of illegal aliens have swarmed in demanding the right to stay, as well as free housing, food, education, medical care, and the right to vote in our elections. They have far lower than average levels of cognitive ability, knowledge, and skills. They come from countries with remarkably different cultures from ours, which makes it hard for them to assimilate. To compound the problem, they are encouraged by Democrats not to try to become Americans but instead to retain the cultural values of the failed society from which they flee.
A Word from Michael Savage
Michael Savage observes: “California had the best schools in the country in 1974, now they’re the worst. What happened? The mass flood of illegal aliens, who became the darlings of the education establishment. Illegal aliens have destroyed the state and the city of San Francisco.
"People go, 'oh, they come here to work.' Bullsh*t, they come here to work. If you look at the rate of abuse of the welfare system, and the hospitals are overwhelmed. I speak to doctors, I speak to nurses. The healthcare system has been destroyed in this state. I think we’re going to enter years and years, if not decades of darkness.
“I see the mass of illegal immigrants, who are illiterate even in their own language. They have none of our shared values. They will never be Americans and embrace the values that built this country. They’ve been steeped in hatred for this nation by the media and the universities. And they have a very dim view of our nation, even though they love the benefits."
Democrats and Illegal Aliens Disdain the Rule of Law
Democrats lure illegal aliens to the United States with promises of free goodies and treat them better than American citizens. Democrats reward bad behavior. Thirty-two thousand illegal aliens occupy free public housing right now that was built for poor American citizens. The Rule of Law is not imperative to them, but it is what makes for a civilized society. Among illegal aliens, there is an epidemic of identity theft, forged government documents, and fake social security numbers.
As Victor Davis Hanson notes: “In truth, illegal aliens lose respect for their hosts, concluding that if Americans do not care to enforce their own laws, foreign nationals need not abide by them either. In reductionist terms, when an immigrant’s first act when entering the United States involves breaking the law, then all subsequent violations become only that much easier.”
Once the illegal aliens are here, they become almost impossible to get rid of. Our federal immigration courts are overwhelmed, with well over a million backlogged cases. It takes two years for an illegal alien to be brought to court, and many do not show up. We have lost control over who is in our country and where they are.
Bill Clinton Speaks
“All Americans, not only in the States most heavily affected but in every place in this country, are rightly disturbed by the large numbers of illegal aliens entering our country. The jobs they hold might otherwise be held by citizens or legal immigrants. Their use of public services imposes burdens on our taxpayers. That's why our administration has moved aggressively to secure our borders more by hiring a record number of new border guards, by deporting twice as many criminal aliens as ever before, by cracking down on illegal hiring, by barring welfare benefits to illegal aliens. In the budget I will present to you, we will try to do more to speed the deportation of illegal aliens who are arrested for crimes, to better identify illegal aliens in the workplace as recommended by the commission headed by former Congresswoman Barbara Jordan. We are a nation of immigrants. But we are also a nation of laws. It is wrong and ultimately self-defeating for a nation of immigrants to permit the kind of abuse of our immigration laws we have seen in recent years, and we must do more to stop it.” (PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON, 1995)
The Democrats of today do not hold those views. They condemn those views. That is because they realize that the future of their party depends on legal immigrants and illegal aliens. To attain the political power they lust for - so that they can destroy the America they despise and replace it with a totalitarian dystopia - they must change the demographics of our voters. They need open borders to import future Democrats. Ninety percent of illegal aliens say they would vote for Democrats if they could legally vote. Millions of illegals voted in the 2018 election thanks to motor-voter bills and states' refusal to require voter ID.
Jobs Americans Won't Do?
None of this means that to favor building a big, beautiful wall on our southern border is to be against legal immigration. The United States has a larger legal immigrant population than any other country, with 50 million foreign-born citizens. Every sixth American is an immigrant. However, illegal aliens comprise 5% of our labor force.
Now let dispel a persistent myth: There are no jobs Americans won’t do. There are jobs Americans won't do for $3 an hour. The liberal propaganda is that no one would perform specific needful tasks if not for illegal aliens. That is demonstrably false. Work is not going to go undone if all illegal aliens are deported.
My wife and I drove across US-2 not long ago from Seattle to Minnesota - the northernmost federal highway, right up near the Canadian border. Amazingly, we saw white people working as busboys, waiters, hotel maids, landscapers, and construction workers. One day, I saw a line two blocks long outside my hotel window. I asked the desk clerk, "What are all those people doing out there?" She said they were lining up to pick apples today. They were all white. People who want things done will pay what they have to pay to have it done. They always have.
People do those jobs in Saskatchewan, Scotland, Iceland, Finland, and all sorts of advanced places even though they do not have millions of illegal aliens. They do them for $10-20 an hour.
The Democrats Say We Cannot Afford the Wall
Democrats claim we cannot afford to build the Wall. Under Obama in 2016, the nonpartisan CBO estimates $310 billion was spent on unauthorized spending. Also, every Christmas Senator Rand Paul issues a Waste Report on government spending. This year, it shows $115 billion of wasted money, e.g., the NIH spent more than $800,000 to study the sex lives of quails high on cocaine. On and on it goes – thousands upon thousands of line items in the budget for stupid, foolish, shocking, disturbing, depressing, useless programs; outrageous examples of how our federal government spends the hard-earned tax dollars of citizens. But we cannot come up with $10 billion for a Wall?
We Need to Keep Mexico Over There
We need the Wall because Mexico has become quite barbaric, with waves of violent crime that gets worse each year. As reported in City Journal: “In cities and villages, from north to south and sea to sea, an ever-evolving, ever-replenishing population of thieves, extortionists, kidnappers, drug traffickers, cheats, and assassins has besieged society.”
The murder rate in Mexico is the highest ever, and the highest among all countries with at least 50 million inhabitants – except for Brazil, which is also exporting problematic people to America. You are five times more likely to be murdered in Mexico than in America. Forty thousand people are missing in Mexico. At least 130 politicians and nine journalists were killed during the last election campaign. Train robberies, house robberies, carjacking, and crimes against women are at an all-time high. 80,000 Mexicans were kidnapped in one year. Eighty percent of Mexicans feel unsafe. Only one in 6,000 crimes are ever solved.
And Now a Word from Robert Knight
As Robert Knight wrote: “The Democrats’ plan: Flood America’s southern border with millions of illegal aliens, hook them on government aid and eventually turn them into voters. Use the courts to strike down any attempts to secure the border. Have judges rule against election integrity laws like voter ID or even the commonsense question about citizenship in the 2020 national census. Once the census count is in, grant more congressional districts and federal funds to jurisdictions swelled with illegals.
“Promise free, unlimited health care for everyone, including illegal aliens. On June 27th, during the Democratic debate, all the candidates raised their hands to support this insane proposal that is sure to be heard loud and clear south of the border. This is a well-executed and mysteriously funded invasion to replace American citizens with illegal immigrants.”
In other words, illegal immigration is being used to erase the votes of American citizens. Each vote cast by an unlawful alien cancels out the ballot of an American and their voice in how our nation will be governed. The more illegal aliens that live in an area, the more seats that area gets in Congress. That is how Democrats steal political power.
A Big Beautiful Wall
Democrats say they oppose the Wall because it won't make a difference. It is, therefore, a waste of money, they claim. They lie. They know the Wall will work, which is precisely why they are against it. If it is built, and it works, they know that the average voter will say, "President Trump said it would work, and it did. He knew what he was talking about.”
If the Democrats really thought what they say they believe – that the Wall will prove to be a colossal failure and waste of money – it would have built already so they could claim, “We told you the Wall was a waste of money and we were right. President Trump was wrong.”
It should be evident to every American by now that our progressive left does not have the best interest of Americans at heart. Open borders policies undermine national security, public safety, public health, and jobs and wages for American workers.
As Michael Brown writes, "Is there anything wrong with wanting to preserve our national identity? After all, people want to come to America for a reason. If we cease to be America, there’s no reason for people to come here."
The costs of not having our southern border walled off are enormous. Illegal aliens drive up the cost to taxpayers for prisons, jails, courts, free lawyers, social services, food, housing, schools, medical care, childbirth, roads, litter cleanup, plummeting social trust, unemployment for American citizens, and lower wages for Americans. It is time: BUILD THE WALL!
