The United States, as a nation founded by immigrants escaping persecution, seeking freedom and a better life is the most compassionate and empathetic to those now seeking the same.
But such a nation must know that compassion without the courage to constrain, coordinate, and control it's immigration policy can be catastrophic - both for the nation as a whole and for every individual.
America if it's to be truly compassionate, must immediately exercise the courage to take control of it's immigration policies- before it's too late . For the good of everyone, it's time to end the current immigration insanity and to say "enough is enough".
Boaters know that the number of passengers a boat can safely transport depends in part on the weather conditions. Smooth seas - more passengers, rough seas, not so many.
The same is true for America's economic ship of state and illegal immigration.
Lower tax rates and reduced regulations have the economy performing better than it has in generations so it's relatively easy to absorb the unprecedented costs of illegal immigrants.
By subtracting the tax revenue paid by illegal aliens – about $19 billion – from the total economic impact of illegal migration, $134.9 billion, in 2017, the total cost of illegal immigration for the United States – at the federal, state, and local levels – was approximately $116 billion.
Those are costs - additional taxes - paid by every American - and disproportionately by the more successful as they pay more of the tax burden.
Our immigration system has been abused, and perverted for so long that the system is now at risk of collapsing. What will happen when the economy slows?
