The Message Must Change!


The Message Must Change!


Dear Friend of LIFA:

During his rally in Greenville, North Carolina, President Trump reiterated the following statement:

“Democrats have put the needs of foreign citizens far ahead of our own citizens. Nowhere in this world is there anything like what’s happening with immigration, with how bad it is, the Democrats’ open border policies deplete our public services, overcrowd our schools and hospitals and bring crime, drugs and deadly gangs into our community. The Democrats want to spend more money on health care for an illegal immigrant than they do for a citizen of the United States.”

Whether it’s law enforcement, schools or utilities, not only are public services stretched beyond the limit in areas overrun by illegals, but the hardship placed on local populations, whose taxes are actually paying for these public goods and governmental services, is woefully ignored.  U.S. citizens and legal residents should be the ones benefitting.  Not presumptuous foreigners, who are knowingly breaking the law by crossing our borders illegally or overstaying their visas, and consequently exhausting resources that were first and foremost designed for Americans.

Only a small percentage of illegal entrants qualify for asylum under the law.  The vast majority are purely economic migrants looking for a better life.  Just because they appear forlorn and spout off “Asylum,” doesn’t mean that they are in any way, shape or form entitled to such legal protection.

What would you do if you were in their shoes?  Pay the cartels to hook you up with a coyote to sneak you across the border into the U.S.?  Remain on American soil after your visa expires?

Would you consider paying for and making an arduous, perilous journey though, if you knew what awaits you in the United States is not all milk and honey?

In spite of the manufactured outrage by the Left and their sycophantic media with respect to family separations and disparities at some of the detention centers, virtually all of the illegal aliens arriving here would pronounce the ICE facilities quite luxurious when compared to the conditions from which they originally hail.  They receive superior free medical care.  Exorbitant amounts of tax dollars are flowing towards these peoples’ wellbeing and care, emptying the coffers established by and for Americans.

Notwithstanding the inscription on the Statue of Liberty, “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,” America simply cannot take in every person who desires to come here.  Such action would be tantamount to national and demographic suicide.  Over time this nation would morph exactly into the kind of places these people fled – and hence everyone would lose.

Maintaining our national identity starts with the proper fortification and administration of our land, sea and air boundaries to completely control all immigration.

What MUST happen is a change in messaging, here and abroad.

For starters, if you enter this nation illegally, you should forever have forfeited any chance of staying legally and you will be prosecuted and deported to the full extent of the law.

Precisely this type of message must be reinforced 24/7 by the Trump administration, the Department of Homeland Security, including ICE.  No one is above the law, and especially not illegal alien invaders, no matter their circumstances.

Genuine refugees/asylum seekers will receive the assistance they require, and everyone else must apply in their native countries for legal entry into the U.S. if they desire to come here, period.

The cartels, which nowadays derive a pretty penny from human trafficking, will not change their modus operandi.  Regrettably the current 2020 Democratic contenders are falling all over each other offering freebies to illegals in hopes of garnering their future votes.  The Cartels’ lust for money and power is understandable.  But the actions by the Democrats are despicable.  Particularly since many of them govern in cities, counties and states that suffer from top down corruption and are plagued by high crime rates and crumbling infrastructures.

Would an influx of illegal aliens, most with only a rudimentary education or even illiterate bring improvements to these conditions?  The answer is as obvious as it is undeniable.

The message to potential illegal immigrants must be loud and clear, reinforced by unequivocal action.  Unless you enter this nation legally, the advantages of staying put and working towards a brighter future in your native country will far outweigh the potential negatives coupled with unwelcome consequences if you should dare to enter the U.S. illegally.  Catch and release will be remnants of the past.
