Illegal immigration is a “major problem” of some significance according to 68% of American voters. That is according to a recent Rasmussen Reports poll that shows many Americans are increasingly concerned in spite of the attempts of mainstream media propagandists attempting to convince much of America otherwise.
A mere 32% of the respondents to the telephone and online surveys stated illegal immigration is “not a serious problem,” and a paltry 9% stated the issue is “not at all serious.”
The Trump administration continues to crack down on the illegal alien invasion as U.S. Border Patrol agents arrest two massive groups of illegal aliens including unaccompanied minors in just over 24 hours in Texas.
Fox News reports:
“U.S. Border Patrol agents scooped up 131 illegal immigrants, including 22 unaccompanied minors, in just a little over a day in the Rio Grande Valley, officials said Tuesday.
“The arrests stem from two separate incidents in a span of just over 24 hours.
“Weslaco agents first arrested 66 illegals from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras on Monday. The group comprised 20 families and 11 unaccompanied minors.
“Then on Tuesday, Weslaco agents arrested an additional 65 illegal immigrants from Guatemala and El Salvador. That group was made up of 25 families and 11 unaccompanied children.
“Officials said in a press release that all 131 illegal immigrants were being processed by the Border Patrol.”
All in all a total of 45 family units and 22 unaccompanied minors were included among those illegal aliens arrested.
There are approximately 1,857,000 illegal aliens residing in the state of Texas, making it the state with the second-highest number of illegal alien invaders living within its borders, surpassed only by the state of California. The total illegal alien population for the entire United States is just north of 12 million, according to the Federation for Immigration Reform (FAIR).
Around 62% of illegal aliens are from Mexico, which translates to more than six million illegal Mexican aliens within American borders without consent or permission. The number two country is El Salvador and accounts for only about half a million or so and the numbers go down from there from places such as Guatemala, Honduras, the Philippines, Korea, Ecuador, Brazil, and China.
Just how much does that cost the American taxpaying citizenry of the United States?
According to FAIR:
“At the federal, state, and local levels, taxpayers shell out approximately $134.9 billion to cover the costs incurred by the presence of more than 12.5 million illegal aliens, and about 4.2 million citizen children of illegal aliens. That amounts to a tax burden of approximately $8,075 per illegal alien family member and a total of $115,894,597,664. The total cost of illegal immigration to U.S. taxpayers is both staggering and crippling. In 2013, FAIR estimated the total cost to be approximately $113 billion. So, in under four years, the cost has risen nearly $3 billion. This is a disturbing and unsustainable trend. The sections below will break down and further explain these numbers at the federal, state, and local levels.
“The Federal government spends a net amount of $45.8 billion on illegal aliens and their U.S.-born children. This amount includes expenditures for public education, medical care, justice enforcement initiatives, welfare programs, and other miscellaneous costs. It also factors in the meager amount illegal aliens pay to the federal government in income, social security, Medicare and excise taxes.
“The approximately $46 billion in federal expenditures attributable to illegal aliens is staggering. Assuming an illegal alien population of approximately 12.5 million illegal aliens and 4.2 million U.S.-born children of illegal aliens, that amounts to roughly $2,746 per illegal alien, per year. For the sake of comparison, the average American college student receives only $4,800 in federal student loans each year.”
Leftists and open borders proponents alike frequently cite allegedly large tax contributions made by illegal aliens as some level of justification for their continued illegal presence within American borders, as well as a basis for offering them amnesty, similar to what was previously enacted in 1986 under the Reagan administration.
As FAIR notes, this is little more than a red herring as these “studies” use some seriously funny math. Most of them grossly overestimate both taxes actually collected from illegal aliens, as well as the amounts actually paid by illegal aliens (i.e. the money actually collected FROM illegals and actually KEPT by federal and state governments).
Since the 1990s, illegal aliens have had little to no fear of deportation for their immigration status creating an environment where not only are illegal aliens both willing and able to file tax returns, they are actually incentivized to do so. Because the vast majority of illegal aliens hold lower-income jobs, many of those that are subject to wage deductions end up receiving a complete refund of all taxes paid, PLUS net payments made on the basis of any tax credits. As a result of this practice, illegal aliens actually PROFIT off the backs of the American taxpayers by filing a tax return themselves and therefore have a strong self-interest in doing so.
By FAIR’s estimation even though the costs of illegal immigration borne by taxpayers at the federal level are staggering, they only pale in comparison to the fiscal burden shouldered by taxpayers at the state level.
As a state, the taxpaying citizens of Texas were forced to shoulder the staggering total burden of $10,994,614,550 which breaks down to approximately $4,429.00.
The combined total of state and local government general expenditures on illegal aliens is $18,571,428,571 billion. Perhaps the leftists and the open borders proponents should just write a check.

Trump Just Had All 575 Of Them Arrested After Busting Them In The Act Of Taking Him Out
Thursday, on Capitol Hill in D.C., roughly two thousand women showed up to protest President Trump’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy. That included a number of Democratic politicians. At least one Senator from Seattle, Washington was arrested, processed and released on the scene. She was busted with 575 of her closest comrades who would love to take Trump out. Among them was actress Susan Sarandon as confirmed by her representative Teal Cannaday. “I was moved by the passionate, committed response to ending the separation of families seeking asylum and the incarceration of children,” Sarandon’s statement read. “This is a moral, not political question and I’m proud to have stood with the hundreds of women to say that we do not accept this. Unite families and abolish ICE.” Not so much. It is a Marxist question, not a moral one.
The protest culminated in a sit-in at the Hart Senate Office building, during which many of the protesters wrapped themselves in foil blankets, reminiscent of the silver Mylar blankets migrant children have been seen with in photos taken from detention centers. Three hours after Sarandon’s announcement that she had been arrested, she praised the protest, writing, “Powerful, beautiful action with hundreds of women saying we demand the reunification of families separated by immoral ICE policy. This is what Democracy looks like. #WomenDisobey.” There were chants of “What do we want? Free families!” and “This is what democracy looks like!”
This is the hot, new talking point for the left. They want ICE abolished and the borders wide open. It’s not really about reuniting children with their parents at all. In fact, that has already been done. It’s a faux issue. Thousands of leftist women marched through the capital and then parked themselves in the Senate office building in the atrium. They called it a “mass civil disobedience” act to protest the Trump administration’s immigration policy. The ones that squeezed into the atrium were arrested for blocking access and illegally crowding the space. In my book, they should have been hit with much more serious charges. According to the United States Capitol Police, approximately 575 protesters were charged with “unlawfully demonstrating.” Police said they were all processed on the scene and then released because there were far too many to actually throw in jail.
Arrested. Stay strong. Keep fighting. #WomenDisobey
— Susan Sarandon (@SusanSarandon) June 28, 2018
Susan Sarandon is now 71. She’s reliving her youthful hippy days and as a devout follower of Bernie Sanders, she’s going for commie gold here. She shared the news via Twitter Thursday, saying: “Arrested. Stay strong. Keep fighting” with the hashtag #WomenDisobey. Yeah, breaking the rule of law is always sound advice, not. Sarandon also tweeted out her thoughts on the issue and protest, as well as images from the sit-in, including calls-to-action. “Abolishing ICE & family separations/detention is bigger than either of us. If ur in D.C., please come out & march,” she tweeted. The march was organized by the Women’s March and the Center for Popular Democracy.
Sarandon has been very vocal in her criticism of Trump in the past, but she says that she is optimistic about America’s capacity to create a real change now that people are “awake and scared.” Fear is a such a potent weapon for the left. “I’m actually optimistic because I think we’re seeing an amazing revolution happening,” she explained in 2017. “Not by the people that claim to be political but by Americans, and I have great faith in America. You’re seeing more people running that have never run.” “If you’re acting and you’re paying attention — you have to constantly be calling your representatives,” she added. “And ultimately it could make a difference.” If you’ll remember, Sarandon can’t stand Hillary Clinton, but she loves Bernie Sanders. That tells you all you need to know right there.

A major protest is taking place today in Washington, D.C., with sister rallies across the country. Hundreds of thousands will take part in a fake cause meant to push a Marxist political agenda and Susan Sarandon will be in the thick of it. Sarandon also supported the Women’s March on Washington in January 2017. Earlier this month, she marched to end gun violence in New York as well and in March she joined Cher at the March for Our Lives rally in Washington in support of tighter gun control. She’s fully embracing her inner socialist in her twilight years.
More than 700 events are planned today worldwide against Trump’s “zero-tolerance” approach towards immigration. Thousands of people arrived early today at Lafayette Park outside the White House in preparation for what is expected to be one of the biggest protests the country has seen against President Trump’s immigration policies, with rallies planned across all 50 states. “Throw him out,” protesters chanted as they prepared to march in the nation’s capital. It’s called the “Families Belong Together” protest. As usual, the left is calling Trump Hitler and is calling ICE facilities black sites or concentration camps. They are calling for the total abolishment of ICE during all of this and want Trump removed from office. It’s not going to happen under President Trump, thank goodness.
Heavily Armed Aliens Just Showed Up And Are Caught On Camera – This Is Just The Beginning
Jim Chilton is a fifth-generation rancher in Arizona that finds himself on the front lines of the battle of border security and illegal immigration. He and his wife, Sue live it daily.
The 79-year-old owns and tends a 50,000-acre ranch situated on the U.S.-Mexico border and his property has become a hotspot for illegal aliens crossing into the country. Unlike the heavily fortified border fence in Arizona, the only barriers separating the Chilton ranch from the Mexican border are four strands of rusty barbed wire strung along steel posts.
While tending his cattle, Chilton states he packs no less than two guns and at least 5 gallons of water. The pistol and rifle are to help him ward off the drug smugglers, mules, and human traffickers, or coyotes as they are also known, as they continuously breach the border through his land.
The water is for thirsty border crossers lured by the promise of American jobs and a better life. Chilton states that it used to be that border crossers were simply part of the normal rhythm of everyday life on their ranch. People would come and go freely between the Mexican state of Sonora and Arizona to and from work.

Chilton states: “You’d feed them and give them water and directions.”
The rancher remarked that he has noticed a recent uptick in the number of individuals attempting to use his ranch to enter the country illegally for nefarious means as well. It was not always that way he says.
The early 2000s saw a marked shift as traffic increased significantly in overwhelming numbers, both for the region itself and for its ranchers. Approximately two years ago the migrant traffic slowed to a near halt, and a massive increase in drug smugglers and human traffickers began to flood across the border onto the Chilton ranch.
Now Sue states they are much more guarded about offering any assistance, stating: “At this point, I’m not opening the door except in the rarest of cases.” The danger is simply too great.
As the national debate rages hot over border security and illegal immigration, the Chiltons are living the reality of it. As a result, they have developed a bit more of a nuanced view, attempting to balance their desire for security and protecting America’s borders with the reality of desperate people – men, women, and children alike – wandering across their land starving and parched from the unforgiving desert sun.
Chilton says he does not understand why building a wall to fortify the border is even a question.
The Los Angeles Times reports that Chilton states that:
“Although he respects the Border Patrol agents in the region, he said, he doesn’t understand why they won’t fortify and build a substantial border fence along the Arivaca region, including the five miles of international boundary alongside his ranch.
“It’s inhumane, he said, to allow border crossers to walk in easily through the border, putting their lives at risk from cold nights and hot days. Many are apprehended farther inland anyway.
“The border should be secured at the border,” he said.”
“The couple lament a recently shuttered Border Patrol outpost, the agency’s only significant presence in that area. The outpost, which operated near the ranch, was closed because of budget cuts.
“The couple have even offered to lease 20 acres of their land — about 500 yards from the border — to Border Patrol officials for $1 a year for an outpost. They said the government had not taken them up on the offer.”
The couple states they believe in some sort of guest worker program similar to the federal program previously in place in the 1940s when temporary Mexican laborers were legally allowed to work in the United States. There were no cartels to pay. No human traffickers. No dying in the desert.
At least two neighboring ranchers have chosen to leave rather than continue to fight in the last few years because of just how dangerous the border security situation has gotten. However, the Chiltons state they intend to stay on their land, though it has proven very costly for them to do so.
The cost of maintaining water lines, as well as the international fence to repair it from all the slashing and trampling it undergoes, costs them thousands of dollars in repairs.
Sue states: “We have to maintain the fence or the cattle would all go to Mexico, y no habla español.”
“She gazed out at the trails on the other side of the measly fence, which stretches 15 miles east until it hooks up with an actual border wall in Nogales. She pointed out a network of trails that scar a hill on the Mexican side. It zigzags, leading toward the international fence on the Chilton’s ranch,” reports the LA Times.
“It’s almost as though we have ceded a swath of this United States of America… It has been ceded to operational control of the cartels,” she said.”
