Democrats’ Crime Problem Is Serious! by The Elephant's Child

The most devastating headline of the day was in the Wall Street Journal, for an article by Karl Rove: When Does the Actual Governing Start? Ouch! Democrats, he says , are chasing left wing fantasies instead of dealing with the necessities of policy. That sounds about right.

The American people are concerned about crime, an influx of illegal aliens that are causing a lot of the crime. Drugs are flowing across the Southern Border from Mexican Drug Cartels, and igniting crime in this country. Joe Biden seems to believe that if he just takes away everybody’s guns, then there won’t be any more crime. It’s a little more complicated than that. “Defund the Police” is clearly not working. In New York’s election, crime was clearly the dominant issue.

Joe Biden has made a concerted effort to open the borders to vast numbers of illegal aliens from Central America. He prefers to refer to them as “refugees” but the Central American problems are not wars nor corruption, but the ability to earn more in the United States than they could at home. Not to mention free schools for the kids, and potentially, the ability to become citizens.

Many Americans welcome new citizens, legal immigrants who come here by applying at the nearest U.S. consulate and waiting their turn. Congress has suggested that about a million immigrants a year are welcome to apply for citizenship. We’re way over that now. The Center for Immigration Studies (CIS.org) is a Washington D.C. Think Tank devoted to immigration and its problems and regulation. The border states are having a bad time withe the influx of illegals. Joe Biden, in his rush to undo anything and everything done by President Donald Trump has made a colossal mess of it. But apparently Kamala Harris is actually going to visit the border.

About two million illegal immigrants have been issued Social Security numbers, including those with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), Temporary Protected Status (TPS), and applicants for adjustment of status, suspension of deportation, and asylum, as well as parolees and those granted withholding of removal. All of the above individuals are in the country illegally and could be required to leave. Yet, under the current system, they are still given work authorization and Social Security numbers, allowing them to receive the EITC and ACTC.

There are, of course, a lot of people in this country who welcome cheap labor. Farmers need a lot of stoop labor in harvesting their crops, and it’s hard to find cheap. The well-to-do want their lawns mowed and their scut work done cheaply. Schools have a hard time dealing with large numbers of non-English speaking kids. When it is done legally, it’s one thing, illegally — something quite different. And some people believe that we were once all immigrants, and shouldn’t turn anyone away. The numbers of Americans murdered by illegal aliens keeps growing. And not all the illegals are from Central America, they are coming from all over the world and using the Southern Border to get in. Including a lot on the inadmissible list.

I would urge you to visit CIS.org occasionally to have a better grasp of the problems. They even offer border tours for those who are interested. Unfortunately, the press doesn’t always do their homework. Democrats are apt to believe that if you just throw some money at a problem, that solves it. Doesn’t work that way. They have already done too much of that. Inflation is clearly showing up. Keep an eye on the price of gas. Lumber has pretty much returned to normal, but we’ll be seeing more inflation at the grocery store.
