“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
The Statue Of Liberty, She stands in the Harbour Holding Her torch high, lighting the way, and giving Hope to those seeking Freedom, opportunity, a new life–a chance for those with little to prosper.
Their have been great numbers of people, from all nations, and walks of life, who have who have taken Her up on Her offer. She welcomed them with open arms. With Gratitude, these people came to this Country, became a part of this society, and improved their life, not to mention their contributions to this Great Nation. Many started with little, and achieved their dreams, paid Taxes, build a life for themselves and their Families, and Yes—many joined our Armed Forces, Defended, and gave their lives for “The Lady in the Harbour”, and their newfound Home! Did She envision a time when Her offering would be abused. A time when the desire to become part of a Dream, would become merely an opportunity to Abuse–Her open arms. By no means am I saying, that there are not individuals who come to this Country, Become U.S. Citizens and give to the improvement of this Nation, for there are many. However–there are many, who do not!
The term illegal alien refers to a foreign national who resides in another country unlawfully, either by entering that country at a place other than a designated port-of-entry or as result of the expiration of a non-immigrant visa.
Though there are many (Negative Impacts) that a great number of Illegal Aliens can have on Society, I have listed just a few that I find interesting–Mind you that there are many more.
“Twelve Americans are murdered every day by illegal aliens, according to statistics released by Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa. If those numbers are correct, it translates to 4,380 Americans murdered annually by illegal aliens. That’s 21,900 since Sept. 11, 2001.” This is alarming to me, American killed by Illegals within our own Country. Those this is probably done by a small percentage of the Illegals–are they also included in the Illegal Alien Population that so many of our Politicians are trying to “Make life easy On”?
“Based on a one-year in-depth study, a researcher estimates there are about 240,000 illegal immigrant sex offenders in the United States who have had an average of four victims each.” Four Victims Each! What are we doing with these people. Many of them are sitting in American Prisons, and Yes, You and I have the Honor of Feeding, and Clothing them–remember that when you pay your taxes!
These are just two examples of the impact “Some” Illegals are having on the Crime Rate in the U.S. Once again, I am not stating that all Illegals commit these crimes–However, the number is starteling, and without proper documentation, it must be a chore to “Round Them Up”.
Crime is not the only concern that I have regarding Illeagals. The cost passed on the American Taxpayer for support and the various programs avaliable is incredible. The following Info I found at http://www.newsnet14.com/2008/09/the-cost-of-illegal-immigration/ “>The Cost of Illegal Immigration
1. $11 Billion to $22 billion is spent on welfare to illegal aliens each year.
2. $2.2 Billion dollars a year is spent on food assistance programs such as food stamps, WIC, and free school
lunches for illegal aliens.
3. $2.5 Billion dollars a year is spent on Medicaid for illegal aliens.
4. $3 Million Dollars a DAY is spent to incarcerate illegal aliens.
5. 30% percent of all Federal Prison inmates are illegal aliens.
6. $90 Billion Dollars a year is spent on illegal aliens for Welfare & social services by the American taxpayers.
7. $200 Billion Dollars a year in suppressed American wages are caused by the illegal aliens.
8. The illegal aliens in the United States have a crime rate that’s two and a half times that of white non-illegal aliens.
In particular, their children, are going to make a huge additional crime problem in the US
9. During the year of 2005 there were 4 to 10 MILLION illegal aliens that crossed our Southern Border also, as many as
19,500 illegal aliens from Terrorist Countries. Millions of pounds of drugs, cocaine, meth, heroin and marijuana, crossed
into the U. S from the Southern border.
10. In 2006 illegal aliens sent home $45 BILLION in remittances back to their countries of origin.
These Facts are Disturbing, the amount of money paid by the American Taxpayer could be better spent–in a way that truly benefits you–The American Citizen!

Mexican cartel Los Zetas paramilitary surrogates attacked and slaughtered an American in Phoenix Ariz. Police say the attackers were dressed in black military like combat uniforms very similar to known Mexican cartel paramilitary gangs.
Phoenix papers report that 6 Mexicans killed a Phoenix man who was found dead by police in a local neighborhood home riddled with more than 100 bullets. Google or click on: They’re known as “Los ZetasThe WorldNetDaily is reporting that some are calling a Mexican drug cartel hit performed by members of the active Mexican Army.
According to early and sketchy reports a Phoenix Police Special Assignments Units heard shots coming from a nearby neighborhood and began to drive toward the noise Sunday. Detectives said once police gained entry into the home, they found the body of Andrew Williams, 30, shot numerous times, according to Arizona Daily News.
“We have seen an increasing amount of these type of violent crimes in the past five months,” Phoenix Police Sgt. Joel Tranter said. “We want the public to realize that these types of crimes will not be tolerated in Phoenix.”
Former Rep. J.D. Hayworth, R-Ariz., said Tuesday on 550 KFYI-AM that he had acquired an internal memo identifying one of the suspects as a former member of the Mexican military, and he interviewed Mark Spencer of the Phoenix Law Enforcement Association. The men were said to be wielding AR-15 assault weapons and wearing full body armor and black assault gear similar to uniforms worn by military and police tactical teams.
Detectives were alarmed to find more than 100 rounds of ammunition in the bullet-riddled home, along with marijuana and body armor, the Arizona Daily News reported. Just as more investigators appeared on the scene, they saw a suspicious red Chevrolet Tahoe driving through the neighborhood. As the officers gave chase three men jumped from the vehicle and ran, but police run them down and arrested them. Spencer said the men were intending to try and ambush the pursuing officers but had ran out of ammunition.
Daniel Garcia-Saenz, 24, Manual Garcia-Trejom, 25, and Rodolfo Madrigal Lopez, 19, each wore tactical clothing and Kevlar helmets and other weapons were found in the vehicle.
Police believe the hit was drug-related and are looking for three more suspects in the case.
This is but another example that the violence in Mexico has and is spilling over into the states, even through many politicians and even the ambassador to Mexico have said it was not happening. Google or click on: Mexican Drug cartels terror reaches deep into the U.S.
Drug-related violence has been escalating and reportedly is shifting from Mexico to U.S. border states since Mexican President Felipe de Jesus Calderon Hinojosa ordered troops to fight the cartels.
El Universal, a Mexico City-based newspaper, reported 38 people killed in Mexican drug cartels Tuesday, the highest number reported one a single day this year.
Eighteen of the deaths took place in Ciudad Juarez, just across the border from El Paso, Texas, where 2,800 troops have been assigned to fight cartel trafficking and violence.
The newspaper reported more than 1,833 people have been killed in Mexico’s drug trade-related violence this year.
