Voices: Another Wave of Illegal Immigration May Be Near

Alan Gomez, USA Today, April 7, 2014

With each day that passes, the chances of Congress agreeing on how to overhaul the nation’s immigration laws grow dimmer. What members of Congress need to realize, though, is that another massive wave of illegal immigration is forming and rapidly headed to our shores.

Meanwhile, there is growing consensus that changes in the economies of Latin America and the U.S. are creating the perfect climate for another wave of undocumented immigrants racing north.

report released last week by the Inter-American Development Bank raises serious questions about the future of Latin American economies.

A slowdown in the Chinese economy would lower commodity prices around the world, which would hammer Latin American countries that for years have reaped profits selling to the Chinese. The slow-but-steady economic recovery in the USA could also hurt Latin American economies because of rising interest rates and the U.S. Federal Reserve slowing its bond purchases in the region.

Add an improved outlook in U.S. sectors that tend to lure low-skilled immigrants, like construction and retail, and the conditions are ideal for unemployed Latin Americans trying to find work in America.

“There will be more pressure for immigrants–both legal and illegal–to come to the United States,” says Demetrios Papademetriou, president of the Migration Policy Institute, a Washington-based, non-partisan think tank that tracks migration around the world.

Illegal immigration slowed sharply during the U.S. recession. With jobs drying up and more Border Patrol agents manning the expansive border with Mexico, the size of the undocumented population in the U.S. fell from 2007 to 2010, according to the Pew Hispanic Center.

But mounting evidence shows that illegal immigration is back on the rise.

Pew estimates that the size of the undocumented immigrant population has increased in each year since 2010, inching closer to the all-time high of 12.2 million. Apprehensions along the southwest border by U.S. Customs and Border Protection–one of the best indicators of illegal activity there–have also increased each of the last three years.

And a study conducted by two officials from the Central Bank of Mexico estimated that, despite a growing middle class, Mexicans–who make up about 58% of the undocumented population in the U.S.–will soon start heading north at pre-recession levels.

    Don’t worry about the social expenditures on crime, health, education, infrastructure, etc., the criminal activity of trespassing is an ‘act of love’.

    • Johnny Squire

      -“the criminal activity of trespassing is an ‘act of love’.”

      As is the criminal act of allowing trespassing. It’s amazing how much ‘love’ our Dear Leaders have in their hearts.

      • Einsatzgrenadier

        The multicultural elite “loves” the alien trespassers because they drive whites from their homes and communities, forcing them to relocate to more rural areas of the country. The US government is waging an all-out war against the white race and they’re using their 3rd world immigrant shock troops to do it. They’re not going to go out of their way to alienate the racial foreigners, not as long as there are still whites in desperate need of ethnic cleansing.

        • NordicHeritage

          One can not forget the wonderful plantation farmers which can not live, or so they say, without these wonderful “diversity enrichers”.

          • DudeWheresMyCountry?

            Lies. Less than 2% of illegals work the fields.

          • NordicHeritage

            Dude reading comprehension is a must. I said one must not forget the farmers in the equation not that they were the main problem. Read, read,read.

          • DudeWheresMyCountry?

            Reading comprehension is not the issue. The misleading statement you made was. Nordic, Nordic, Nordic writing skills beyond sixth grade please!

          • NordicHeritage

            Here’s some facts about the ag industry and illegalls : http://www.brookings.edu/research/papers/2012/03/15-immigrant-workers-singer#4

            http://www.voanews.com/content/us-farmers-depend-on-illegal-immigrants-100541644/162082.html
            Please undestand stats even though you may think that only a 20- 25% representation in that field is nothing i assure you it is something. Cheap labor no matter who or where it’s coming from is a big problem in this country and that was my point. And if you had good reading comp skills you could have gleaned that from what I posted earlier.

      • AndrewInterrupted

        As is the criminal act of allowing trespassing for the purposes of election rigging and gerrymandering. This is what the Muslim Albanians did in Kosovo. The Dear Leaders ripped a page out of the playbook of their Albanian Muslim brothers.

    • Erasmus

      And yet Grand Negus Shelly Adelson and his non-shellfish-eating friends are demanding amnesty for illegal aliens but want their country (and by “their country” I don’t mean the US) so tight a house cat walking across the border would set off alarm bells.

      American has far bigger threats to her well-being than Islamo-fascists and Vladimir Putin.

    • kikz2

      so, how many of you republicans are goin to vote for jeb in 16 if he’s run?

      • striket3

        Not a chance

    It is generally accepted legal precedent that if an attacker tells you it is act an of love prior to the rape then he is completely exculpated from his crime and the victim is without legal recourse.

    • Anna Tree

      Illegal immigration is an act of love as much as honor killing, cannibalism and rape: depends for who.

      • Extropico

        Hi Anna. What is your first language?

        • Anna Tree

          French. You’re the second one to ask me in two days! Am I that bad in English lol?
          Maybe I should have started my previous post with “Indeed Extropico…”: I hope you got that I agreed with you, just wanted to sarcastically point further the pathology of our politicians/elites/media.

          • Extropico

            Merci for the reply, Anna. I appreciate your joie de vivre. Your English is quite good, and I enjoy reading your postings! Où êtes-vous né? Québec?

          • Anna Tree

            I also enjoy your posts!

            Most Québecois are completely bilingual, I am not, I am from Europe originally. By the way, your French is very good too, accents and all! I feel bad to point to a tiny error/typo: as I am a girl, you must say “Où êtes-vous née?”.

    Mexico isn’t the only nation invading our shores! The hordes of the world have changed our nation for some time to come. Only an act of ____________; ( insert desired text) will stem the flow.

  • E_Pluribus_Pluribus

    Nothing to worry about. The next wave of illegal aliens are “already Americans” according to the Vice President of the United States — once they get here and start “waiting for a chance to contribute fully”:
    “These people [illegal aliens] are just waiting, waiting for a chance to be able to
    contribute fully. And by that standard, 11 million undocumented aliens are
    already Americans, in my view. They just want a decent life for their kids and a
    chance to contribute to a free society, a chance to put down roots and help
    build the next great American century. I really believe that. That’s what
    they’re fighting for.” Joe Biden, speaking to the Hispanic Chamber of
    Conference, March 27, 2014)

    • Bossman

      The USA has experienced many waves of immigrants in the past but they were mostly Europeans, now they are Latin Americans and Asians. Personally I prefer Latin Americans to East Asians. There is just too much of humanity in East Asia.

      • ThomasER916

        You’re anti-White. I’m not.

        I prefer Whites.

        • NordicHeritage

          Best to not feed the trolls eventually they go away.

      • jeffaral

        Under a nationalist government you’ll be among the first infiltrators to be deported. Senor Bossman.

      • Greg Thomas

        Funny, how you do not want asians ( I don’t want mexicans or asians), but have no problems with “hordes” of third world mexicans invading this country. I’m certain you are an anchor baby.

        • Bossman

          Mexicans are fellow North Americans. That is what the leaders of Canada, Mexico and the USA call themselves when they meet.

          • ThomasER916

            They’re your fellow idiot.

      • WR_the_realist

        The hordes of Latin America are also countless, and they don’t even have to get on a plane or boat to get here. Naturally you would prefer 90 IQ Hispanics to 100 IQ East Asians, because they are closer to your intellectual level.

    • NordicHeritage

      Sounds alot like Ancient Rome doesn’t it where citizenship was cheapened to the point of becoming meaningless.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    Yes, they broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.

    –Jeb Bush

    The new wave of criminal immigrants are doing their part to colonize the U.S. and strip us of our resources… out of Love…Illegal immigration is LOVE!!

    Jeb Bush will be at the border personally welcoming them

    They’re only coming here to take jobs Americans won’t do: Vote Democrat.

    Now you Americans, shut up and pay your fair share: Tax day is right around the corner and as of April 9th, YOU are still working for the government, not yourself!!

    (tax freedom day is April 21th unless you’re in California, then it’s the 24th of December).

    That “Love” is about to hit your wallet!!

    “The slow-but-steady economic recovery in the USA”.

    Our economy is getting better? That’s news to me, my living expenses and career prospects haven’t gotten any better what so ever, nor for anyone else my age I know.

    • NordicHeritage

      If you are part of the “ingroup” its great ,all one has to do is look at wall street and see that.

    • Garrett Brown

      Lies to keep whites from waking up.

    • evilsandmich

      “Haven’t gotten any better”; you’re being generous sir as the economy is slowing sinking in a swirling toilet bowl. You Internet manners are however noted 😉

  • borogirl54

    Also there are many Central American illegals that have continued to try to come to US.

  • wildfirexx

    As long as the American Government ignores it’s own written laws on illegal entry into the United States…the migrants will keep coming, until America is no more!

  • ThomasER916

    They’re easy to spot. They’re short, fat, brown, stupid, and speak only Spanish and poorly.

    When the system collapses it should be easy to hunt them down.

    • Ringo Lennon

      Too bad for them. Whereas a cabbage head can blend in. No questions asked.

      • ThomasER916

        I’ve read the original texts of Bartolome De Las Casas and Columbus’s journals. These people are highly susceptible to large dogs like Mastiffs because they’re so short, fat, and slow they’re easily bitten on the neck so the dog doesn’t lose stability. This allows packs of Mastiffs to kill quickly and keep moving.

        I imagine hunting parties with a few dozen Mastiffs, long rifles, and horses would do the trick. It worked the first time. These people haven’t changed their underwear in 500 years. It will work again.

    As a famous cowboy once said, ‘Bring it on evildoers”

  • John R

    The problem isn’t Latin America. The problem is that our government refuses to do anything about it. Bring the troops home, I say, and have them do what a military is SUPPOSED to do: Protect the borders of our country.

    • Alexandra1973

      What really honks me off is people saying “We’re fighting them over there so we don’t have to fight them over here.”

      That is what I call stupidity.

  • Ringo Lennon

    Bill OReilly, in his talking points says we should be a compassionate country. He believes Republicans should court Hispanics to win elections. He agrees with Jeb Bush.The man has no principles. If we let everybody in we would have billions on our doorstep. We would become a third world cesspool.

    • Ahnenerbe

      America has already ceased to be America when they changed the laws on national origin immigration back in the 60’s. It can only get worse. Have you ever seen NYC? LA, Miami or any of the major cities?

      • Bartek

        You are right, its just that the corpse is just starting to stink and attract notice.

    • NordicHeritage

      All of the media personalities are just reading their scripts from the gop or dnc, depending on their bent , which gets it’s script from the multinationals and a plethora of other special interest groups.

    • evilsandmich

      Bill OReilly is a left wing crank who has made a name for himself doing half a reporters job, which unfortunately is remarkable in this day and age.

    • striket3

      Yeah I saw that last night. Him and the great karl rove. Fox is pathetic but occasionally they have some good smart people like ingraham and napolitano. Coulter and malkin are pretty good but the vast majority of them are amnesty supporters. Some are just in hiding.

      I hope sessions runs. If not, I’m staying home or voting in spite.

      • AndrewInterrupted

        “Some are just in hiding”. And there in lies the big question mark.
        How many will step up in America’s hour of need?

  • Johnny Squire

    Another wave of betrayal by our political, business and spiritual (I’m pointing the finger at you, Catholic Church) leaders may be near.

    • evilsandmich

      I’m amazed at the number of Roman Catholics who still show up for mass full knowing that the joint is run by hard core Marxists. I finally got sick of it myself. I love the ideals in general, but their overriding desire to have the government implement those ideals instead of the individuals will be the death of us all.

      • Johnny Squire

        They just stick their head in the sand as their Church and their world crumbles around them, as evidenced by their non-existent outcry over their parishes becoming predominantly mestizo overnight.

  • Anglokraut

    Whew, good thing I just got my Rosetta Stone Latin American Spanish set. It was a tough decision: German was my first choice, and French my second. But I haven’t worked in over a year now, which made the Spanish the economical choice. I resent it, but we live in dark times, and I live in the invasion’s ground zero.
    Eventually Spanish fluency will be required for employment in all service and government jobs, and the current trajectory of America’s collapse suggests that time will be in under ten years.
    I say get out if you can–it’s a very ugly time to be an American.

    • Where would we go, though? Europe isn’t doing much better.

      • Anglokraut

        Perhaps Russia? They certainly have the space!

        • Bartek

          Russia might let you in, they do have a lot of land they want occupied.
          Don’t expect to live in a highrise in Moscow. They would probably settle you around a volatile area like Chechnya and make it a condition of you residency.
          It would be like being a pioneer. No doubt hard work, but better overall than what will happen to the USA.

          Western Europe is not interested in any White immigration from the USA.

          Poland recently passed a right of return law, it is worth looking into if you are of Polish descent.

          • Anglokraut

            Nope, no Polish blood. 50% German, just through my dad’s side; mom is more of the classic upstate New York mutt: mostly English and German, with a dash of Irish.

        • Kenner

          I believe Poland will attract the most white American refugees. It’s economy is stable, and they’ve avoided most of the downside of EU membership.

          • Anglokraut

            Didn’t Poland send their undesirables to England? According to comedian Russel Peters, Poland is the Mexico of Europe.

  • Ahnenerbe

    The problem is the over population of Earth, the herd needs to be thinned.

    Comprehensive immigration reform is like my ray of sunshine on a dreary day. Come on sunshine, pull through!

    The irony is that more than a few agree with Jeb Bush….morons.

  • Alexandra1973

    I’ve known about the proposed North American Union since about 2005.

    Our government is broke so they don’t want to appropriate funds to secure the borders. They rather use the borrowed and printed monies for bribing their voters.

    • IstvanIN

      We could bring our troops home from Africa, South America, Europe and Asia.

      • ThomasER916

        “We” can’t. “We” are not part of the plan.

  • Anglokraut

    I reckoned that was the endgame of NAFTA anyway; I figured that out in 1993, and I was in 6th grade.
    Obviously I understand now its sinister nature. If there is going to be any merging of states, it should be Anglo-Canada and Anglo-U.S. into an Anglo superstate. The Quebecois are so used to their protections that they would never risk a Mexican invasion through an NAU.

  • Bartek

    Much more worried about the 10 million Africans Congress wants to give low skilled worker visa to as part of ‘immigration reform’.

    • evilsandmich

      If I had to choose, which I’d rather not, I’d rather try to absorb a 100,000 more Mexicans than another dozen Somalis.

        Isn’t that like choosing to be poisoned by carbon monoxide instead of arsenic?

        • evilsandmich

          Yup, hose in the exhaust is less painful than dran-o down the bowels! 🙁

    Has anyone seen Ann Coulter’s latest column? She gives it to Sheldon Adelson with both barrels. She explicitly raises the issue that Adelson is a big fan of border fences and immigration control in Israel but wants open borders here. It could have been pulled from Amren or Vdare. She could lose the syndication of her column over that one. Nowadays we who are willing to see reality are not “little Eichmanns” to the left, we are “little [Brendan] Eichs” to be crushed economically for not toeing the line.

    • AndrewInterrupted

      townhallDOTcom/columnists/anncoulter/2014/04/09/competition-for-thee-but-not-for-me-n1822369?

      She’s actually borrowing same Frank Borzellieri mojo.

      Ann has some partial ownership of Townhall, I believe. They can ban her elsewhere, but not there.

      • I notice in that column Coulter almost went there. And that Townhall, a site that has a favorite country that just so happens not to be this one, actually published it.

        • AndrewInterrupted

          TownHall isn’t as bad as NRO, Breitbart, etc. Ann actually owns a piece of that operation. I think I heard that somewhere. Ann is gradually turning Abelson’s bribe resources into monopoly money. I don’t think TownHall is even in the Top Ten of Israel-First sites. I wish they would switch to DISQUS. That would increase their blogging traffic ten fold.

        • WR_the_realist

          Sheldon Adelson is a sociopath who said we should preemptively drop a nuclear bomb on Iran (just as we did on China, Pakistan, India, and Israel when they were threatening to develop nukes — Oh wait, we didn’t.) I am thoroughly repulsed at the Republicans prostituting themselves for that guy’s money.

          • AndrewInterrupted

            It might even be political sabotage on his part. He’s pretty much poison now. Maybe Ann’s last column put the final nail in Adelson’s coffin.

        Yeah, another botched liberal mess. I imagine, since only Americans are chiming in, the Cultural Marxists will close it for comments pretty quickly. The coup is dirty like that.

    “What members of Congress need to realize, though, is that another massive wave of illegal immigration is forming and rapidly headed to our shores.”

    If our treasonous government would guard our borders and enforce our immigration laws, these “illegal waves of migrants” wouldn’t come and if they tried, they’d be sent back. Illegal migrants can only come if our government ALLOWS it.

    THE IMMIGRANT POEM

    I cross ocean, poor and broke,
    Take bus, see employment folk.

    Nice man treat me good in there,
    Say I need to see welfare.

    Welfare say, “You come no more,
    We send cash right to your door.”

    Welfare checks, they make you wealthy,
    Medicaid, it keep you healthy!

    By and by, I got plenty money,
    Thanks to you, American dummy.

    Write to friends in motherland,
    Tell them come, fast as you can.

    They come in turbans and Ford trucks,
    I buy big house with welfare bucks.

    They come here, we live together,
    More welfare checks, it gets better!

    Fouteen families, they moving in,
    But neighbor’s patience wearing thin.

    Finally, white guy moves away,
    Now I buy his house, and then I say,

    “Find more aliens for house to rent.”
    And in the yard I put a tent.

    Send for family, they just trash,
    But they, too, draw the welfare cash!

    Everything is very good,
    And soon we own the neighborhood.

    We have hobby, it’s called breeding,
    Welfare pay for baby feeding.

    Kid need dentist? Wife need pills?
    We get free! We got no bills!

    American crazy! He pay all year,
    To keep welfare running here.

    We think America darn good place!
    Too darn good for the white man race.

    If they no like us, they can scram,
    Got lots of room in Pakistan.

    The sole impetus behind a Mexican applying for/receiving
    a “Tourist Visa” is for the purpose of “overstaying” it.
