In France, Front National (FN), the anti-immigration “France for the French” party, just defeated France’s two big parties in the European Parliament elections. Many of the people I talked with in France recently are fed up, and there is a powerful ground swell against Muslim, Third World, and Eastern European immigration. In fact, FN wants to send a lot of this unproductive crowd packing.
Here in America, it is up to the Tea Party to fight the immigration battle because, as Pat Buchanan writes, the John Boehner, Eric Cantor-led Republicans appear to be folding up their tent and joining hands with Obama and Holder in allowing a continued course of illegal immigration, along with a potential pathway to citizenship for illegals.
The French have learned the hard way and it is time Americans wake up. Any country that allows itself to be swamped by Illegal immigration soon loses its cultural and national roots. Can there be anything worse for our Federal Republic? Voters need to rise up in protest now while there is time left.
According to a May report of the Center for Immigration Studies, of the 36,000 criminal aliens who, while awaiting deportation, were set free by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, 193 had been convicted of homicide, 426 of sexual assault, 303 of kidnaping, 1,075 of aggravated assault, 1,160 for stolen vehicles, 9,187 for possession or use of dangerous drugs, and 16,070 for driving drunk or drugged.
Those 36,000 criminal aliens are roughly equivalent to three-and-a-half divisions of felons and social misfits released into our midst.
And this does not include the 68,000 illegal aliens against whom ICE declined to press criminal charges last year, but turned loose.
How goes the Third World invasion of the United States?
According to the AP, the U.S. Border Patrol’s Rio Grande Valley sector made 148,017 arrests from Oct. 1 to May 17, while 62,876 were caught in the Tucson sector, the second-busiest crossing point.
That is almost 211,000 illegal aliens caught in just over half a year in just two sectors of the border. And that figure only tells us how many were caught, not how many got in, or how many of those caught were released and now reside among us.
Among those caught crossing into Texas these last seven months were 47,000 unaccompanied children. Border Patrol estimates that by Sept. 30, apprehensions of children and teenagers in this fiscal year could reach 90,000.
