How many of you know about the gold rush of 1849. By way of review here’s how the story went. ” On January 24, 1848 a New Jersey prospector James Marshall discovered gold on the American River in northern California, while he was working on a sawmill owned by John Sutter. When news of the discovery leaked out, there was a mass migration to California, and in subsequent years a fortune in gold was mined. “
News travels very fast, especially when you have these subversive groups funding, training and supporting this activity to overwhelm the American system for their own political motives. The open borders crisis is a real phenomenon that has it’s roots in leftistsocialist activism and propaganda, a living example of the Deep State in action. What we’re talking about here is a multi trillion dollar industry.
Every American who is sensibly against open borders should be aware of the definitive works of Michelle Malkin and her ground breaking book “Open Borders Inc.“. It’s a deep dive into the issue and how your tax dollars are funding this problem. The irony is, we’re financing the problem while at the same time struggling to finance the solution. We need to seriously consider the agenda of many of these non-profits which is where much of this funding comes from. You can’t make this stuff up.
We’re now in the midst of another gold rush. It is coming across our southern border. They are referred to more accurately as illegal immigrants. The word illegal seems to be skipped over in favor of the word immigrant. The estimate I’ve been hearing for the last 20 years is around 11 million illegal immigrants. I think anyone naive enough to believe that the number is still 11 million should go back to school and learn how to count. My personal belief is that you could double that number 20 million and you might be in the accurate range.
We should realize that the economies of our neighbors to the south depend more than you know on remittances. Take Mexico for instance, in 2018 26 Billion dollars was sent to Mexico. Guatemala in 2018 reported 6.7 Billion, El Salvadore 5.4 Billion, Honduras 5 Billion. Note: these are estimates. No matter how you cast it, it’s money leaving the U.S. and headed south.
According to the World Bank In 2019, remittance flows to low- and middle-income countries are expected to reach $550 billion, to become their largest source of external financing. Banks were the most expensive remittance channels, charging an average fee of 11 percent in the first quarter of 2019. Post offices were the next most expensive, at over 7 percent. Remittance fees tend to include a premium where national post offices have an exclusive partnership with a money transfer operator.
As a US taxpayer this should make you think about this movement to open borders and welcome in anyone who wants to come to America. This might be hard to believe, but under President Obama a tax loophole exists that allow legal and illegal Immigrants to fleece the American people by taking unlawful tax deductions costing the U.S. Treasury Billions every year. Under this insanity, immigrants in this country can claim people back in their home country on their income taxes and receive money from this filing under the child tax credit provision of the IRS. This is something you as Americans would go to jail for. President Trump’s next tax bill will hopefully remedy the situation and close the loophole.
There is a huge cost associated with accommodating illegal integration. We really don’t hear much about the money it cost to America. Illegal immigrants and their kids are costing American taxpayers $135 billion a year, the highest ever, driven by free medical care, housing, food programs, education and a huge law enforcement bill.
There is another group looking for gold. This is the Democrat party. The reason for their new found benevolence is the power of the vote. All over this country you see efforts to make it legal for illegals immigrants to vote. It took the 15th Amendment and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 to finally guarantee Blacks the right to vote. The Democrats want the country to just let illegals in and then register to vote. That language appears nowhere in the Constitution.
One thing you never hear discussed is chain migration. This is where immigrants who enter the country legally get to bring in their relatives and their relatives relatives. So it’s easy to imagine 1 immigrant becoming 7 or 8 or more through chain migration. That’s just the legal immigrants, now add those coming here illegally and the problem balloons into unsustainable territory. We bring in more than 1 million immigrants legally each year.
This article would be incomplete without shedding some light on the motivation for all this illegal integration and open borders. While it is true that many of those who seek to come here are looking for better lives. The truth is, even they don’t know or care that they are tools of the left, whose mission is to destroy America. The left themselves are tools of the deep state and serve as members of the swamp.
While we were asleep and whistling Dixie, America has been going through a dramatic change. No one really knows if we can recover. I do think it’s impossible without God. The power to change is within each of us and that is where God is.
