As millions of refugees fled the war-torn areas of the Middle East, many went north to Europe. Barack Obama wanted to bring in tens of thousands of them into the United States. Liberals from all across the nation jumped on his bandwagon. Conservatives tried to stop Obama from allowing thousands of refugees into the US without any effective vetting process.
Mind you, during Obama’s reign, that vetting process was so poor that they allowed some Islamic terrorists into the country. One prime example was Tashfeen Malik, who was vetted through Obama’s system and then joined her husband on a terrorist shooting spree in San Bernardino. The couple killed 14 people and wounded 22 more. I contended then and still contend that all of the victim’s blood are on Obama’s hands for his flawed and open arm refugee and immigration policies.
During the 2016 presidential campaign, Donald Trump often mentioned the hidden dangers of blindly allowing tens of thousands of Middle Eastern refugees into the nation, under the current (Obama’s) vetting system. He also mentioned that some of these refugees and illegal aliens are criminals and will increase the crime rates in areas where they settle.
Liberals, including Hillary Clinton, condemned Trump for his supposedly unfounded accusations. Speaking from personal knowledge, I’ve seen firsthand how illegal aliens do increase the crime rates in areas they settle in. It happened in my own neighborhood in Mesa, Arizona. My wife and I used to take evening walks in the neighborhood. We allowed our two daughters to play outside and go across the street to a friend’s house without us having to escort them. Then a flood of illegal aliens began moving into the neighborhood. Some homes had as many as 30-40 illegals living in one 3 or 4-bedroom home. As the illegals moved in, break-ins, robberies, assaults and more increased. Friends in law enforcement told me that the bulk of the increase in crimes was directly associated with the illegal aliens. By the time we moved away from the neighborhood, it was no longer safe to walk the streets or let your kids play outside. We had to make sure our cars were always locked.
After being sworn into office, President Trump signed an executive order to place a temporary halt on all immigration and refugees coming to America until a better vetting system could be created and implemented. However, liberals protested and all it took was one liberal judge to believe that he had more authority and power than the President of the United States and blocked Trump’s executive order. When Trump rewrote the executive order and signed it, again it was blocked by a liberal judge who used his court to push his activist agenda instead of ruling on the law.
Liberals claimed that there was no evidence of increased crime due to refugees and illegal immigration, even though there is a ton of evidence to prove that illegal aliens do increase crime rates. Liberals also ignored the facts that a number of the terrorist attacks that have taken place in various European nations, were committed by refugees from the Middle East, many of which entered the countries illegally.
Now, a report from Germany should help justify Trump’s reasoning for wanting to impose stronger restrictions on allowing refugees and immigrants into the country:
- Although non-Germans make up approximately 10% of the overall German population, they accounted for 30.5% of all crime suspects in the country in 2016.
- Nearly 250,000 migrants entered the country illegally in 2016, up 61.4% from 154,188 in 2015. More than 225,000 migrants were found living in the country illegally (Unerlaubter Aufenthalt) in 2016.
- The Berlin Senate launched an inquiry into why migrants disproportionally appear as criminals in the city-state compared to Germans.
“An official annual report about crime in Germany has revealed a rapidly deteriorating security situation in the country marked by a dramatic increase in violent crime, including murder, rape and sexual assault.”
“The report also shows a direct link between the growing lawlessness in Germany and Chancellor Angela Merkel’s decision to allow in more than one million mostly male migrants from Africa, Asia and the Middle East…”
Germany has experienced what other parts of Europe have experienced and what many areas in the United States have experienced. Israel built a border wall to help protect it from Palestinian terrorists. Hungary built a border wall because of the problems associated with thousands of illegal refugees that flooded into their country. In areas along the US border where a border wall or fence has been built, like around Yuma, Arizona, the rate of illegal crossings into the US have drastically dropped.
America needs to take stronger measures to secure our borders and protect the American people. Those people who oppose such actions should be labeled as traitors and treated accordingly.
