United States Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz said, “The US does not have “operational control” of the southern border.”
That statement contradicts Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. In fact, Mayorkas has kept our southern border open, with Joe Biden’s bidding, for a whopping 26 months. Anyone from over 150 countries, and any drug cartel mules with millions of fentanyl pills, along with more than 100 documented terrorists, have had total access to cross America’s borders—unimpeded.
This massive number of people has been transported, fed and housed to all locations in America…at taxpayer expense into the billions of dollars.
The U.S. Border Patrol chief also noted that the constant numbers of illegal migrants has sustained 150,000 crossing per month for 26 months. The highest numbers have exceeded 251,087 per month for several months.
A former Clinton staffer, William A. Galson, said, “Inflation is Joe Biden’s biggest problem.”
Inflation drives all of us into the poor house…or a much lower standard of living. Why? Because we’re paying huge increases for food, energy, transport and medical care…but at the same time, we’re paying billions to house, feed, transport and care for those millions of migrants. To date, according to www.FairUS.org, your tax dollars pay out $338 million annually.
Galson might have added that America’s labor markets are being inundated with millions of unskilled, uneducated people who usurp jobs from America’s poverty-stricken minorities. How do we raise the standard of living for our working poor when we’re adding millions more of unskilled poor?
Galson might have added that we cannot build homes fast enough for the average increase of 5,000,000 to 6,000,000 million people added, net gain, to the United States, annually, virtually all of those increases—from immigration.
Since we maintain a stable human population, how will we deal with housing starts that are driven by endless immigration? It’s evident, according to the Wall Street Journal, that immigration-fueled housing prices are driving inflation.
Kathy Jones, a chief strategist at the Schwab Center for Financial Research, said, “For those who would prefer not to have to wade upstream into macroeconomic theory against most of the punditry in order to live a striving and optimistic American life, these graphs and terms may fall somewhere between esoteric and ethereal. Which makes it easier to avoid a major media discussion of the topic, as per Eric Weinstein’s concept of the “Gated Institutional Narrative.””
She added, “I couldn’t help but notice that Mark Zuckerberg-backed, pro-amnesty and mass immigration pushers are gaslighting that more immigration would help tame housing price-driven inflation.”
Wouldn’t you expect your two senators to bring illegal border crossing to an end, and reduces legal immigration to a level that better manifests our national interest?
Because, if Washington DC Swamp Rats don’t stop this invasion, every American household will be paying enormous amounts of money just to maintain all the newcomers.
Drought and Lack of Water in the West
Not figured into this equation of massive immigration into America—WATER! There’s a finite amount of it. Once you overwhelm the carrying capacity of water, you’ve got BIG problems facing you! They will become critical, ugly and unsolvable at some point.
From Denver to Los Angeles, more than 40 million people depend on the Colorado River to keep their farms thriving and taps flowing. But now, Western states are at a critical juncture – after a 23-year drought and rapid population growth, a water supply crisis is becoming real. As part of the Colorado River Compact, established in 1922, seven states are struggling to agree on how to divide water from the waning Colorado River. I should know because I live in Colorado where our drought continues…and the cost of water in Denver rises dramatically every year. At some point, we won’t have enough water for everyone’s taps.
“At the end of January 2023, California took a dramatic step to protect its share of the Colorado River by claiming “senior water rights,” and proposed water cuts for the other six Compact states. California gets 15% of its water from the Colorado, but that water contributes 33% of that used by Southern California, home to 23 million people. If the states cannot come to an agreement, then the Bureau of Land Reclamation likely will impose its own cuts in water use.”
Again, it won’t matter how many cuts hit Western states when there’s not enough water to maintain crops, animals and humans.
A big concern has been the drastically falling levels at two of the West’s biggest reservoirs, Lake Powell and Lake Mead, which have fallen to one-third their capacity. The fear is that they could hit what’s known as “dead pool,” i.e., the level at which the water behind either the Hoover or Glen Canyon dam is too low to flow out, thereby ending downstream flows. Water managers worry that could happen within two years.
With 40 million people (and growing with no end in sight) relying solely on the beleaguered Colorado River for domestic and agricultural use, immigration increases demand on a declining resource. The Census Bureau projects America’s population will grow by another 75-100 million in the next 40 years, with roughly 90% of that caused by immigration. If nothing is done to bring population growth rates down, then the West will be burdened with millions more people, fewer farms, more expensive water, and an increasingly parched landscape.
In the end, this “exponential growth thing” will be our undoing. It’s got this civilization by the throat. We could stop it, but D.C. Swamp Rats won’t! Well, it will stop at some point by the “Darwin Solution”, which of course, is brutal, ugly and without mercy.
In a few words, our country is being overwhelmed by those SWAMP PEOPLE in Washington DC. Who’s leading this nightmare to become a reality? None other than Joe Biden who won’t be around to see what he has done to our country and/or future generations.
Do you see what I see? Do you understand that we’re in BIG TROUBLE within the next 10 to 20 years? How stupid can we be to allow such huge numbers of immigrants to invade our country to the detriment of all Americans?
