The Administration Knows They Have Encouraged Illegal Immigration

An internal report from Homeland Security, one that we were not supposed to read, was linked to Breitbart.com. Here is an excerpt:

Migration pull factors include reunification with family members already in the United States and successful migration attempts; that is, most (98 percent) OTM UCs are issued a Notice to Appear and not immediately removed from the United States. Last year, only 1,700 UCs were repatriated to their home countries…

HSI-Intel assesses with high confidence that reunification with family members already in the United States continues to be a pull factor for UCs from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.

So get that? Homeland Security knows that a major draw for illegal immigration is the fact that other illegal immigration has been successful. People now have family here.  A related factor is simply that so many people have succeeded in coming here and making a living here illegally. That encourages others to find that same success.

If the government acknowledges these facts, then what are they doing when they publicly refuse to enforce immigration law? There is no denying it: they are attracting and inviting more illegal immigration.

Breitbart’s list of revelations from the report includes the following items:

—Host counties are doing little to prevent their nationals from coming to the U.S. and are likely motivated to allow this due to a desire to have U.S. dollars going back to the host countries.

—The remittances or monies sent from foreign nationals living in the U.S. to their home countries has increased significantly over the past few years and is considered a major factor in why the nations’ governments do not interfere with their nationals expatriating and traveling to enter the U.S. illegally.

This suggests that, if the U.S. really wanted to do so, we could decrease our costs of dealing with illegal aliens by offering money to help the governments discourage such law-breaking. I hate foreign aid but if this was done right it could reduce our costs. Surely governments would not find the remittances so attractive if they made money by stopping them.

It also suggests that we are going to soon see a dramatic reduction in immigration as soon as our latest Federal-Reserve-inflated economic bubble bursts. Back in 2008, I remember several stories about how the remittances to Latin America dramatically decreased, and also about immigrants who moved back to their home countries because they no longer could find work here.

This puts a new perspective on what is attracting these immigrants. Much of the influx may be driven by the Federal Reserve’s monetary stimulus. People come here for cheap money.

So in every way our government has increased and perhaps even induced the crisis that they are now trying to use to create new Democrat voters.
