.....and why? “In all, nearly 60 percent of immigrants—legal and illegal—are on government assistance, compared with 39 percent of native households. Why would any country voluntarily bring in people who have to be supported by the taxpayer?” ― Ann Coulter, ¡Adios, America!: The Left's Plan to Turn Our Country into a Third World Hellhole 1. Here's the answer: the reason that the Democrats/Liberals encourage illegal immigration is for one reason and one reason only: illegals vote for the Democrats. There is no other benefit to this nation. None. Illegals keep wages low, and unemployment of Americans high; it costs billions in welfare services and police costs high. It is only through the actions of Democrats and illegal aliens that the Left is able to claim a popular vote victory in the last election. After all, Obama told illegal aliens to get out and vote. 2. Continuing on the theme, one of education for the deluded Democrat voters.... “The New York State Department of Corrections has collected information about the top ten nationalities in its prisons for years—.... Foreign inmates were 70 percent more likely to have committed a violent crime than American criminals. They were also twice as likely to have committed a class A felony, such as aggravated murder, kidnapping, and terrorism." Data here: http://www.doccs.ny.gov/Research/Reports/2008/Impact_of_Foreign-Born_Inmates_2008.pdf But....what the heck.....they vote Democrat. 3. In 2010, the top ten countries of the foreign-born inmates in NY were: Dominican Republic: 1,314 Jamaica: 849 Mexico: 523 Guyana: 289 El Salvador: 245 Cuba: 242 Trinidad and Tobago: 237 Haiti: 201 Ecuador: 189 Colombia: 168 BTW....between 1985 and 1999, the native-born in the prison population increased 99%. During that time, the foreign-born in the prison population increased 251%. http://www.doccs.ny.gov/Research/Reports/2010/ForeignBorn_IRP_Report_2009.pdf Gee.....it's almost as if they were invited in...... 4. Of course this is not the slant one gets from the house organ of the Democrat Party, the NYTimes. "Most readers are agog at the number of Dominicans in New York prisons, having spent years reading New York Times articles about Dominicans’ “entrepreneurial zeal,”21 and “traditional immigrant virtues.” Even in an article about the Dominicans’ domination of the crack cocaine business, the Times praised their “savvy,” which had allowed them to become “highly successful” drug dealers, then hailed their drug-infested neighborhoods as the “embodiment of the American Dream—a vibrant, energetic urban melting pot.” ― Ann Coulter, ¡Adios, America!: The Left's Plan to Turn Our Country into a Third World Hellhole Hence, the importance of re-education camps for Liberal simpletons: balance the truth about what Democrat policies have done, and who they have invited to a neighborhood near you. There is an answer.....I'll get to it.
