Illegal immigration by families hit a monthly record in August as thousands of migrant families poured across the southwest border in what the Trump administration is calling a “crisis” situation.
A combined total of 16,476 people traveling in family units were either detained along the border or found to be inadmissible at ports of entry in August, according to Customs and Border Protection (CBP) figures released Wednesday.
Of those, 12,774 were apprehended trying to sneak across the border illegally, between ports of entry. Such arrests have historically been used as proxy for illegal immigration with the idea that — assuming a given standard of border security — more apprehensions mean more people are trying to slip undetected into the U.S.
The number of migrants arrested while traveling in family units in August was 38 percent higher than in July, when there 9,258 people arrested. It was also the highest total ever recorded in August and about three times higher than in the same month in 2017, according to CBP.
Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials attributed the surge in illegal immigration by families to court-imposed policies that prevent the government from detaining adults and children together for long periods of time. The restrictions give migrant parents an incentive to bring children across the border illegally, according to DHS spokesman Tyler Houlton.
“Smugglers and traffickers understand our broken immigration laws better than most and know that if a family unit illegally enters the U.S. they are likely to be released into the interior,” Houlton said in a statement.
“Specifically, DHS is required to release families entering the country illegally within 20 days of apprehension,” he added, referring to a provision of the Flores settlement, a federal court order that governs immigration detention.
First handed down in 1997, Flores requires the government to release unaccompanied alien children (UAC) from detention to relatives or licensed shelters without unnecessary delay.
Federal Judge Dolly Gee ruled in 2015 that Flores also applied to children apprehended while traveling in family units. As part of the ruling, Gee established a 20-day maximum period that children could remain in immigration detention with their parents.
The Trump administration has sought to overturn that provision, arguing the order’s special treatment of migrant families encourages illegal immigration across the southwest border. But Gee denied the government’s request to modify her Flores ruling in June, prompting the administration to pursue the matter via regulatory changes.
Under a proposal posted to the Federal Register on Friday, the government would be able to self-license family detention centers, making it easier to keep families in detention for the entirety of their immigration court proceedings.

The actual number of illegal immigrants appears to be far larger than previously understood

The most common number offered by our media for the number of people living here illegally seems to be about 12 million., published by the  Annenberg Public Policy Center, purporting to be a neutral and objective source, cites DHS estimates as well as NGOs:
There were 12.1 million immigrants living in the country illegally as of January 2014, according to the most recent estimate from the Department of Homeland Security. The estimates from two independent groups are similar: The Pew Research Center estimates the number at 11.1 million in 2014, and the Center for Migration Studies says there were 11 million people in 2015 living in the U.S. illegally (see Table 1 in the full report).
That would be about 3.5 percent to 3.8 percent of the total U.S. population in 2014.
They even publish this precise-looking graph from Pew:
To be fair, measuring illegal activity is inherently difficult. But the striking thing is that these established authoritative sources pretty much agree on the same ballpark. Normally that establishes a high level of confidence.
But then, how do we square 12 million with the newly-released data from theImmigration Reform Law Institute. Paul Bedard writes in the Washington Examiner:
Nearly 40 million Social Security numbers have been stolen and used by illegal immigrants and others to get work, according to agency records obtained by an immigration reform group.
The Immigration Reform Law Institute said that from 2012 to 2016 there were “39 million instances where names and Social Security numbers on W-2 tax forms did not match the corresponding Social Security records.”
The group said that there is a “thriving black market” used by illegal immigrants to get Social Security numbers needed to get a job.
Let’s allow that a percentage of the stolen numbers were not used by illegals, but how big would that be? Ten percent? Who else has a need for a stolen identity. Well, there are those sleeper agents for foreign powers, like the starring couple in the TV series The Americans, Russians who were trained to pose as ordinary Americans. But there can’t be millions of them. I suppose that there are conmen and conwomen exploiting phony identities, but again, how many millions of them can there possibly be?
Being generous to the other groups, there must be at least thirty million illegal aliens using stolen social security numbers. How could 12 million illegals account for 30 million stolen identities in the period of 34 years?
Some illegals do end up using more than one number because:
“The Social Security numbers of young children are especially sought by illegal aliens, as this theft is likely to go undetected for years. As children reach late teenage years and apply for credit for cars, student loans, and other needs, they may find that their credit has been compromised with mortgages, credit cards and criminal records attached to their identities,” said the group.
But four years is not enough time for such “replacement” numbers to be needed, and the nearly 40 million numbers all appeared in that short time frame.
One thing that we do know: The Obama administration had no interest at all in discovering the magnitude of the problem:
Their report draws attention to a move by former President Barack Obama to stop sending so-called “no match” letters to employers notifying them that numbers used by employees on the wage forms do not match their identity.
The change followed the president’s decision to approve amnesty for some 700,000 younger immigrants let into the U.S. under his Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. Some of those have been dubbed “dreamers.”
 Finding out how many people are here illegally is the most basic, necessary step in restoring the rule of law. My guess is that the number is shockingly higher than the estimates wants us to accept.


“The percentage of foreign-born workers in the U.S. labor force has more than tripled over the last four decades and while the U.S. represents just 5 percent of the world’s population it attracts 20 percent of the world’s immigrants, according to a new report.”

Open the floodgates of our welfare state to the uneducated, impoverished, and unskilled masses of the world and in a generation or three America, as we know it, will be gone.

Those most impacted are middle class and lower middle class. It is they whose jobs are taken, whose raises are postponed, whose schools are filled with non-English speaking children that absorb precious resources for remedial English, whose public parks are trashed and whose emergency rooms serve as the local clinic for the illegal underground. 

“Currently, the U.S. admits more than 1.5 million legal and illegal immigrants every year, with more than 70 percent coming to the country through the process known as “chain migration” whereby newly naturalized citizens can bring an unlimited number of relatives to the U.S. In the next 20 years, the current U.S. legal immigration system is on track to import 15 million new foreign-born voters. Between 7 and 8 million of those foreign-born voters will arrive in the U.S. through chain migration.” JOHN BINDER

At the current rate of invasion (mostly through Mexico, but also through Canada) the United States will be completely over run with illegal aliens by the year 2025. I’m not talking about legal immigrants who follow US law to become citizens. In less than 20 years, if we do not stop the invasion, ILLEGAL aliens and their offspring will be the dominant population in the United States. 

MULTI-CULTURALISM and the creation of a one-party globalist country to serve the rich in America’s open borders.

“Open border advocates, such as Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, claim illegal aliens are a net benefit to California with little evidence to support such an assertion. As the CIS has documented, the vast majority of illegals are poor, uneducated, and with few skills. How does accepting millions of illegal aliens and then granting them access to dozens of welfare programs benefit California’s economy? If illegals were contributing to the economy in any meaningful way, CA, with its 2.6 million illegals, would be booming.” STEVE BALDWIN – AMERICAN SPECTATOR


What will America stand for in 2050?
The US should think long and hard about the high number of Latino immigrants.
By Lawrence Harrison

It's not just a short-run issue of immigrants competing with citizens for jobs as unemployment approaches 10 percent or the number of uninsured straining the quality of healthcare. Heavy immigration from Latin America threatens our cohesiveness as a nation.

 Exclusive – Mo Brooks: Likely 15M Illegal Aliens in U.S., Giving Blue States 20 Additional Congressional Seats

Exclusive – Mo Brooks in Senate Ad: Fund President Trump’s Border Wall or Face Government Shutdown

Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) says the counting of illegal aliens when dividing up congressional seats and electoral college votes is a violation of the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution.

Brooks, along with the state of Alabama, are suing the federal government for their counting of illegal aliens, rather than citizens, in congressional apportionment and the dividing up of electoral college votes.
In an exclusive interview with SiriusXM Patriot Channel’s Breitbart News Saturday, Brooks revealed that should the Congress continue dividing up congressional seats and electoral college votes based on all persons in each district—including illegal aliens—rather than the number of American citizens, that the state of Alabama is set to lose a congressional seat.
Brooks said:
We’re probably in the neighborhood of about 15 million illegal aliens in America now. 15 million comes out to roughly 20 congressional seats and 20 electoral college votes. Each congressional seat has roughly 700,000 to 800,000 people in it. [Emphasis added]
So, if you count illegal aliens in the Census for the purposes of distributing political power, that’s the number of congressmen per state or … the number of electoral college votes per state, you’re talking about … 20 electoral college votes and congressmen that are taken from states that follow our laws, that help our border patrol agents, and help our ICE agents … shifting those 20 congressional seats and 20 electoral college seats to states like California that have large numbers of illegal aliens in them. [Emphasis added]
I personally believe that’s wrong, on a policy level, but I also believe it violates the Equal Protection clause of the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution because it dilutes the voting power of citizens who live in states that don’t harbor an enormous number of illegal aliens. [Emphasis added]
Listen to the full interview here:
As Breitbart News has reported, the counting of only American citizens to divide up congressional districts and electoral college votes would shift power away from the affluent, metropolitan coastal cities of the U.S. and towards middle America.

For example, California has an estimated three million illegal aliens, a total of about 5.3 million noncitizens, and a total population of about 39.5 million residents. Currently, California has 53 congressional seats, the most in the country.
If California’s congressional districts were set by the number of citizens in the state, it would potentially lose three to five congressional seats, leaving the state with about 48 to 50 seats.
Breitbart News Saturday is broadcast live on SiriusXM Patriot Channel 125 from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Eastern.
