The Cost Of Illegal Immigration

In his State of the Union address on January 30, US President Donald J. Trump referred to the brutal murder of two 16-year-old girls from Long Island in December 2016 by members of the "savage MS-13 gang," responsible for a spate of other gruesome killings in the area, as well.

Many of these gang members, he explained, had entered the United States illegally. "For decades, open borders have allowed drugsand gangs to pour into our most vulnerable communities," he said.

Calling on Congress "to finally close the deadly loopholes that have allowed... criminal gangs to break into our country," he listed the four pillars of his immigration-reform proposal:

A path to citizenship for 1.8 million illegal immigrants who were brought to America by their parents.

The construction of a "great wall on the southern border" and enforcement by agents patrolling and securing the border.

Ending the visa lottery, "a program that randomly plans out green cards without regard for skill, merit, for the safety of American people."

Ending the "current, broken system" of chain migration of distant relatives, and limiting sponsorships to spouses and minor children.

I say, send them all home. They all have had plenty of time to become legal citizens of the U. S. Send them back to home. This is no longer a free ride country. There are Americans born in this country that can't get 1/4 of the help they truly need that DACA and illegal immigrants have received. Furthermore, the Democrat party fair extremely well amongst the America poor. Pelosi and her cronies need to work. That's what we pay them to do. Instead this party is more focus on the "rights" of DACA, dreamers and illegal immigrants in this country. Hey "Dummicrats, have you notice the status of the poor, elders, disable, veterans, children and lets throw in infrastructure need HELP. Send those illegal immigrants back to their own country.

Democrats don't care about the cost of illegal immigration. They only care about votes. They can lie about it all day long but their own actions speak much much louder then their words even when they ramble on for 8 hrs. It is perfectly acceptable to democrats for US children to get murdered by MS 13 since many of it's members came in as "unaccompanied minors." They would rather pretend the murdered child never existed then to potentially offend a voter base they desperately need at this point in time. Democrats are nasty people. They said so themselves and is about the only thing they have ever told the truth about. They are nasty. The party of liars, perverts, degenerates and the immoral. Pure filth.

building a wall will actually save americans money,all that money that we are now giving to illegals through government benefits, we will be able to keep for ourselves when the wall is built and the illegals are deported.The cost of a wall is cheap compared to all the money we will save by getting rid of the illegals and keeping them out.
