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.

Shots Fired Into ICE Offices In San Antonio After Leftist Threats, FBI Investigating ‘Targeted Attack’
Terrorists masquerading as open border activists shot into an ICE office in San Antonio, Texas. This was after they made threats to commit violence. The FBI is now investigating this as a targeted attack based on political rhetoric. Another group of radicals threatened employees of a government contractor in Florida that provides facility space for the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency to detain border crossers and illegal aliens the day before this happened. It looks like revolutionary violence has arrived.
Breitbart News, who dares to conduct actual reporting, captured footage of protesters with Never Again Action, Miramar Circle of Protection Friends of Miami-Dade Detainees, Food Not Bombs Fort Lauderdale, Students Working for Equal Rights, and the Black Lives Matter Alliance of Broward County who shouted threats at workers and former employees of the GEO Group, a private contractor used by ICE for facility and detention space. In other words… communists.
One of these violent radicals directly threatened GEO Group’s former general counsel John Bulfin, shouting the locations and addresses of where his children live in the United States. That’s called doxxing and the left is doing if more and more… paging Joaquin Castro who doxxed President Trump’s donors there in San Antonio. The same city as the shooting… hmmm… I detect a trend.
“We know where all your children live throughout the country … John Bulfin you have kids in [bleeped out], you have kids in [bleeped out],” the protester shouted. “We know everything about you and you won’t just be seeing us here.”
“We know where you sleep at night,” another protester shouted. “We know what kind of dog food you buy your dogs.”
“We’re not actually joking,” the protester said before shouting the location of where Bulfin lives. “John Bulfin you go to [bleeped out], you go to church on [bleeped out], you live on [bleeped out the] road. We are not joking.”
“The threats came just a day before gunmen allegedly fired shots into local ICE offices and GEO Group offices in San Antonio, Texas in what the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is describing as a “targeted attack.”
“These shootings were cowardly, brazen, violent acts, absolutely without justification and a threat to our entire community,” San Antonio FBI Chief Christopher Combs told KSAT 12. “An attempt to attack federal employees is a federal crime with serious consequences … I don’t think there is a question that they knew which floor the ICE office is on,” said Combs during a press conference Tuesday afternoon at the scene, adding that all the rounds that were recovered were found on the floor that ICE occupies.”
“To fire indiscriminately into any building is not an act of a protest but an act of violence,” Combs said.
“In an interview with Breitbart News, GEO Group VP of Corporate Relations Pablo Paez said the protest threatening the contractor’s employees is “incredibly reckless.”
“The safety of our employees is our top priority and we will do whatever it takes to ensure that their safety and their security remains our top priority,” Paez said. He went on:
“These are politically motivated attacks. We have been a services provider to the federal government for over 30 years. The fact is that the services we provide in our facilities today are in no way different than the high quality, professional services under the same standards that we provided for eight years under President Obama’s administration. So where was the outrage then?
“Last year, “abolish ICE” protesters targeted agents in the city of Portland, Oregon, shouting racial slurs at Hispanic and black American ICE officers, Breitbart News reported. Those same abolish ICE activists also videotaped themselves beheading a doll of President Donald Trump. The images depicted Trump’s head being chopped off with a guillotine.”
What kind of sicko threatens peoples’ children, families, and dogs like this? Oh, that’s right… leftist ones. You don’t see this on the right.
The shooting occurred around 3 a.m. at an ICE building where two floors that housed administrative and executive offices were targeted, according to the San Antonio Express-News. The outlet reported another shooting occurred at a separate facility where an ICE contractor was located.
All of the shots that we have found are on the floors where ICE had offices,” Combs said. “This is no question a very targeted attack. It’s not a secret facility, you can go online, it’s [the address is] out there. So they did some research, they knew what floors ICE was on, they knew what buildings they were and they hit those.”
One guy was taken into custody and then released because he wasn’t the one who did the shooting.
Daniel Bible, the field office director for the agency’s enforcement and removal operations in San Antonio, blamed the shooting on elected officials, the media and activists for a breakdown in political discourse that has encouraged violent acts.
“Political rhetoric and misinformation that various politicians, media outlets and activist groups recklessly disseminate to the American people regarding the ICE mission only serve to further encourage these violent acts,” Bible told Fox News affiliate, KABB-TV. “ICE officers put their lives on the line each and every day to keep our communities safe. This disturbing public discourse shrouds our critical law enforcement function and unnecessarily puts our officers’ safety at risk.”
“We are concerned that there could be additional attacks, we have to stop that,” Combs said. “We can not allow political discourse to lead us to the point of violence, where federal employees, innocent people doing their jobs are put in harm’s way.”
These people knew exactly who they were shooting at. And yes, there were people in the building at that time of night. They won’t be satisfied until someone dies over this. Actually, if you count the dead Antifa terrorist who firebombed an ICE facility in Tacoma, Washington, someone already has.

AZ Court Of Appeals: No Death Penalty For Illegal Accused Of Murdering Grant Ronnebeck
Makes you wonder how many of these judges are on the take from the cartels.
How many more Americans are going to be slaughtered by illegal aliens? These judges are despicable and should be held accountable for the things they do.
The Democrat party is responsible for every single American murdered by an illegal alien.
An Arizona court made official this week that the illegal alien charged with murdering 21-year-old Grant Ronnebeck will not face the death penalty because of his alleged “intellectual disability.”
Last month, Judge Michael Kemp ruled that 34-year-old illegal alien Apolinar Altamirano was not eligible for the death penalty because he had a fifth-grade education and was unable to obtain special education because he grew up in rural Mexico. Last year, Kemp ruled that prosecutors in the case would not be allowed to mention that Altamirano was an illegal alien who had been living in the U.S. for more than 20 years.
This week, the Arizona Court of Appeals reinforced Kemp’s decision, telling prosecutors that they would not be allowed to seek the death penalty against Altamirano.
On January 22, 2015, Altamirano entered a QuickTrip convenience store in Mesa, Arizona, where Ronnebeck worked as a store clerk, and allegedly shot the young man to death after demanding a pack of cigarettes, Breitbart News reported at the time.

After shooting and killing Ronnebeck, prosecutors say Altamirano stepped over the body of the young man to grab a couple more packs of cigarettes before fleeing the scene. Following the alleged murder, the illegal alien sent police on a high-speed chase and was eventually arrested and taken into custody.
At the time of the alleged murder, Altamirano — an alleged self-proclaimed member of the Sinaloa Cartel — had been out of police custody on bond despite having orders to be deported from the U.S.
Prosecutors will continue seeking a first-degree murder conviction for Altamirano.
“Our children are worth … it’s blood on [the Democrats’] hands,” Angel Dad Steve Ronnebeck said during a press conference for Angel Families in June. ” … I made a promise right after Grant died that I was going to keep fighting for Grant and keep fighting for the American people. What the American people don’t understand is that it’s going to happen to them or somebody they know … with so many people coming across our border.”
