THE MEXICAN INVASION of AMERICA’S OPEN and UNDEFENDED BORDERS
One in every eleven persons born in Mexico has gone to the U.S. The National Review reported that in 2014 $1.87 billion was spent on incarcerating illegal immigrant criminals….Now add hundreds of billions for welfare and remittances! MICHAEL BARGO, Jr…… for the AMERICAN THINKER.COM

What's going on in Mexico?
When I hear that remittances have hit an all-time record high, at $28.7 billion, all I can think is something bad is going on, obviously in their economy. Because nobody goes to the states, illegally or otherwise, unless the risk outweighs the reward. The thing is, Mexico is not the worst place to live in Latin America - it's actually one of the best. Here in the states, we may see much of Mexico's lowlife and think that's the standard, because border jumping is what lowlife do (and it actually goes both ways, our badguys head for the border, too). But Mexico itself, on an ordinary level, is quite a tolerable country, with median income above the $7,000 mark, which is the normal threshhold that discourages illegal immigration. When incomes in the home country go above $7,000, it becomes not worth it to sell oranges on the offramp in Orange County. When incomes go below that, selling the oranges becomes more attractive.
So something disturbing is happening in the economy there, even as pundits dismiss the phenomenon as having something to do with President Trump and his border crackdowns. Color me skeptical on that. Emigrating is more complicated than that.
More to the point, this remittance surge and the economic pain it implies, may explain why a Chavista-style populist, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, commonly known as AMLO, is rising in the Mexican polls as it prepares to hold presidential elections this year. People who have lost hope in their futures or who are newly impoverished or maybe kicked around by crises vote for guys like that.
Which could portend problems with Mexico somewhere around the block. It ought to give anyone the creeps to know that a Chavista populist is rising in Mexico. A bad Mexican economy (and it's probably not helped by uncertainty over NAFTA, so President Trump should get right on in settling where he wants that treaty to go) and a crazed Chavista leader, who will turn his nation into another Venezuela, isn't going to be a good thing on our border. Take a look at what the people outflow is in a place like Venezuela, something like 20% and you won't be encouraged.
The thing is, all by itself the remittance phenomenon, so praised by the some elements of the multilateral agencies as good for potential development if the money is invested, is not generally a good thing if it isn't, according to one IMF report. Remittance economies tend to underdevelop a country, by robbing it of indigenous value creation and of human capital, and leave just dead-weight money on the table, which first is used to support families as a sort of welfare lifeline, but then ends up as taxes in government coffers. Sometimes it drives the value of the local currency up and makes exports from that country uncompetitive in international markets, which also harms development.
In places such as Central America, the long remittance dependency has actually left them with population crises, not enough young people able to take care of the old, hard as that is to believe. El Salvador in particular has this problem. Just as embattled nations in extended wars eventually get around to using younger and younger soldiers, what we are seeing from Central America is younger and younger immigrants coming to the U.S. as unaccompanied minors, because the older ones are gone.
The other problem is that extended remittance dependency breaks up families - and leaves young boys raised without fathers. We all know how that looks in the U.S. inner cities. Guess what, MS-13 is the same dynamic.
In the U.S. the remittances that come of illegal immigration drive down U.S. wages, particularly of those on the lowest-skilled parts of the ladder, and as money flows out from local communities, leaves them underinvested and run-down. Nobody can live two places at once. Illegal immigrants live here but their money lives in Mexico. And it's often untaxed.
So it's not a good thing to hear that remittances are rising in Mexico, particularly since we have been told, time and again, that Mexican illegal immigration has been tapering off. The remittance rise suggests that trend may be reversing and that portends trouble of a kind from that country that we have not seen.
One could ask Kate Steinle, if she was still alive, what happens when a multiple-
times deported felon continues to return to the U.S. after each deportation, only to
"If the racist "Sensenbrenner Legislation" passes the US Senate, there is no doubt that a massive civil disobedience movement will emerge. Eventually labor union power can merge with the immigrant civil rights and "Immigrant Sanctuary" movements to enable us to either form a new political party or to do heavy duty reforming of the existing Democratic Party. The next and final steps would follow and that is to elect our own governors of all the states within Aztlan."
REMITTANCES ….. are only part of Mexico’s looting… and billions for anchor baby breeders, billions for heroin sales and then do the numbers!
Mexicans abroad sent home nearly $2.4 billion in transfers in November, 24.7 percent higher than a year earlier, marking their fastest pace of expansion since March 2006, according to Mexican central bank data on Monday…
ILLEGALS & WELFARE
WE CAN’T TAKE CARE OF OUR OWN, AND YET WE LET MEXICO BUILD THEIR BILLION DOLLAR WELFARE STATE ON OUR BACKS!!!
70% OF ILLEGALS GET WELFARE!
“According to the Centers for Immigration Studies, April '11, at least 70% of Mexican illegal alien families receive some type of welfare in the US!!! cis.org”
So when cities across the country declare that they will NOT be sanctuary, guess where ALL the illegals, criminals, gang members fleeing ICE will go???? straight to your welcoming city. So ironically the people fighting for sanctuary city status, may have an unprecedented crime wave to deal with along with the additional expense.
$17 Billion dollars a year is spent for education for the American-born children of illegal aliens, known as anchor babies.
$12 Billion dollars a year is spent on primary and secondary school education for children here illegally and they cannot speak a word of English.
$22 billion is spent on (AFDC) welfare to illegal aliens each year.
$2.2 Billion dollars a year is spent on food assistance programs such as (SNAP) food stamps, WIC, and free school lunches for illegal aliens.
$3 Million Dollars a DAY is spent to incarcerate illegal aliens.
30% percent of all Federal Prison inmates are illegal aliens. Does not include local jails and State Prisons.
2012 illegal aliens sent home $62 BILLION in remittances back to their countries of origin. This is why Mexico is getting involved in our politics.
$200 Billion Dollars a year in suppressed American wages are caused by the illegal aliens.
Nearly One Million Sex Crimes Committed by Illegal Immigrants In The United States.
THE STAGGERING COST OF THE WELFARE STATE MEXICO AND THE LA RAZA SUPREMACY DEMOCRAT PARTY HAVE BUILT BORDER to OPEN BORDER’
According to the Federation for American Immigration Reform’s 2017 report, illegal immigrants, and their children, cost American taxpayers a net $116 billion annually -- roughly $7,000 per alien annually. While high, this number is not an outlier: a recent study by the Heritage Foundation found that low-skilled immigrants (including those here illegally) cost Americans trillions over the course of their lifetimes, and a study from the National Economics Editorial found that illegal immigration costs America over $140 billion annually. As it stands, illegal immigrants are a massive burden on American taxpayers.
THE HORDES OF ILLEGALS KEEP COMING…. Despite America’s jobs, housing and Mexican crime tidal wave.
"If the racist "Sensenbrenner Legislation" passes the US Senate,
there is no doubt that a massive civil disobedience movement will
