Responsible Immigration Reform Will Secure Our Borders

Issued on: February 2, 2018

"For decades, open borders have allowed drugs and gangs to pour into our most vulnerable communities. They’ve allowed millions of low-wage workers to compete for jobs and wages against the poorest Americans."

President Donald J. Trump

BORDER SECURITY SOLUTIONS: President Trump has put forth an immigration framework that lays out the steps needed to secure our borders.

  • It is imperative that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has the resources it needs to prevent illegal immigration, remove individuals who have already illegally entered the United States, and protect our national security.
  • Finally securing our Southern and Northern borders will require a combination of physical infrastructure, technology, personnel, resources, authorities, and the closing of legal loopholes.
  • The President’s immigration framework lays out the minimum resources and tools required to deter rampant illegal immigration into the U.S.

CURRENT STATE OF OUR BORDERS: While President Trump has taken decisive action to increase border security and curb illegal immigration, it is time for Congress to do its part and provide the resources needed to secure our borders.

  • In the first months of President Trump’s Administration, from January 21 to April, illegal migration across the Southwest border declined sharply.
  • Beginning in May of 2017, the U.S. began seeing a month-to-month increase in apprehensions along the Southwest border.
    • December 2017 marked the eighth month in a row of an increase in Southwest border apprehensions.
  • U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reported 310,531 apprehensions by Border Patrol agents in fiscal year (FY) 2017.
  • U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) made more than 140,000 arrests and more than 225,000 removals in FY 2017.
    • From the start of President Trump’s administration, January 20, 2017, through the end of FY 2017, ERO made 110,568 arrests compared to only 77,806 in FY 2016.
  • The steady increase in the flow of unaccompanied children and family units from Central America continues to be a concern.
    • Family unit apprehensions by Border Patrol agents at the Southwest border grew from 1,118 in April 2017 to 8,121 in December 2017, an increase of more than 600 percent.
    • Unaccompanied minor apprehensions by Border Patrol agents at the Southwest border grew from 997 in April 2017 to 4,083 in December 2017, an increase of more than 300 percent.
  • There is strong public support for increased border security measures according to a recent poll conducted by Harvard-Harris.
    • 61 percent of those polled believe that our current border security is inadequate.
    • A majority of those polled, 54 percent, support building a combination of physical and electronic barriers across our Southwest border.

SECURE BORDERS, SECURE COMMUNITIES:  Securing our borders will help safeguard the safety of our communities and curb the flow of illegal drugs into the United States.

  • Border security is key to preventing the flow of illegal drugs into the U.S. and ensuring the safety of our communities.
  • CBP officers and Border Patrol agents arrested 20,131 criminal aliens in FY 2017, as well as an additional 10,908 individuals who were wanted by law enforcement.
  • ICE ERO arrested 105,736 criminal aliens in FY 2017.
    • This represented a nearly 12 percent increase from FY 2016 to FY 2017.
  • In FY 2017, U.S. Border Patrol Agents arrested 536 illegal aliens affiliated with a gang, of which 228 were affiliated with MS-13, or more than 40 percent of those arrested.
  • Most attempts to smuggle illicit contraband into the U.S. occur along the Southern border.
  • According to the Department of Justice and Drug Enforcement Administration’s National Drug Threat Assessment, Mexico is believed to be a major source of heroin and methamphetamine in the U.S. and the main transit point for U.S. bound cocaine.
  • Illegal drug shipment seizures have increased significantly over the past three years.
    • Approximately two pounds of fentanyl were seized by CBP in FY 2013, compared to approximately 1,485 pounds seized in FY 2017.
  • U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) also seized 2,370 pounds of fentanyl in FY 2017.


White House Framework on Immigration Reform & Border Security

Issued on: January 25, 2018

BORDER SECURITY: Securing the Southern and Northern border of the United States takes a combination of physical infrastructure, technology, personnel, resources, authorities, and the ability to close legal loopholes that are exploited by smugglers, traffickers, cartels, criminals and terrorists.
  • The Department of Homeland Security must have the tools to deter illegal immigration; the ability to remove individuals who illegally enter the United States; and the vital authorities necessary to protect national security.
  • These measures below are the minimum tools necessary to mitigate the rapidly growing surge of illegal immigration.
    • $25 billion trust fund for the border wall system, ports of entry/exit, and northern border improvements and enhancements.
    • Close crippling personnel deficiencies by appropriating additional funds to hire new DHS personnel, ICE attorneys, immigration judges, prosecutors and other law enforcement professionals.
    • Hiring and pay reforms to ensure the recruitment and retention of critically-needed personnel.
    • Deter illegal entry by ending dangerous statutorily-imposed catch-and-release and by closing legal loopholes that have eroded our ability to secure the immigration system and protect public safety.
    • Ensure the detention and removal of criminal aliens, gang members, violent offenders, and aggravated felons.
    • Ensure the prompt removal of illegal border-crossers regardless of country of origin.
    • Deter visa overstays with efficient removal.
    • Ensure synthetic drugs (fentanyl) are prevented from entering the country.
    • Institute immigration court reforms to improve efficiency and prevent fraud and abuse.

DACA LEGALIZATION: Provide legal status for DACA recipients and other DACA-eligible illegal immigrants, adjusting the time-frame to encompass a total population of approximately 1.8 million individuals.

  • 10-12 year path to citizenship, with requirements for work, education and good moral character.
  • Clear eligibility requirements to mitigate fraud.
  • Status is subject to revocation for criminal conduct or public safety and national security concerns, public charge, fraud, etc.
PROTECT THE NUCLEAR FAMILY: Protect the nuclear family by emphasizing close familial relationships.
  • Promote nuclear family migration by limiting family sponsorships to spouses and minor children only (for both Citizens and LPRs), ending extended-family chain migration.
  • Apply these changes prospectively, not retroactively, by processing the “backlog.”
ELIMINATE LOTTERY AND REPURPOSE VISAS: The Visa Lottery selects individuals at random to come to the United States without consideration of skills, merit or public safety.
  • This program is riddled with fraud and abuse and does not serve the national interest.
  • Eliminate lottery and reallocate the visas to reduce the family-based “backlog” and high-skilled employment “backlog.”

DACA 使用现有的移民通道。

砍掉旁系亲属的移民,保留父母的移民,但担保者必须为父母提供40点的SS,现在的SS tax每年最高收到12万,最多十点。可以自愿提高上限,每1.2万算多一个点,用于父母移民时点数计算。兄弟姐妹都可以累积点数支持同一对父母。到达40点后可以申请父母移民,他们来了后也能享受meidcare,这个其实是最大的担忧。什么老年公寓都是可有可无的。 这样能让家庭团聚,又不会让现在累死累活往SS里存钱的人到自己该享受SS的时候SS破产了。那样太不公平。


边界墙自己成立一个trust,先前投入25B, 建好从毒贩那里没收的钱用于墙的维护,另外可以开通能源和旅游项目也回流到Trust里。搞不好这个墙最后还挣钱。

现在入籍的老年人每月也拿几百刀的social security 做日常的开支。 这些是必须的费用,虽然大部分的国人都不在乎这点钱,但这是必须有的,不然的话回头就生病,耗费成倍的增加。所以担保父母移民的人预先提供Social security 的储蓄是合理的。 这样也screen out那些政屁龙虾,尼玛自己不干活吃白条,干嘛让你再招人来白吃白拿呢?

如果只需要medicare,按理来说SS不需要补交,只应该补交medicare tax。因为理论上说SS tax是管老年公寓,粮食券这些福利的。其实这些对大多数老中的父母都不是必须的。

Our Current Immigration System Jeopardizes American Security

Issued on: January 16, 2018

"We will defend our country, protect our communities, and put the safety of the American people first."
President Donald J. Trump

ENTRY OF FOREIGN-BORN TERRORISTS: The Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security released a new report showing how many convicted terrorists entered the United States through our immigrationsystem.

  • The Department of Justice (DOJ) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) have jointly submitted a report pursuant to President Donald J. Trump’s Executive Order 13780: Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States.
  • The report found that approximately three out of every four individuals convicted of international terrorism-related charges between September 11, 2001 and December 31, 2016 are foreign-born individuals who entered the United States through our immigration system.
    • 402 foreign-born individuals were convicted of terrorism in United States courts.
    • 1,716 foreign-born aliens with national security concerns were removed from the United States.
    • These totals only show those aliens who were convicted or removed, and therefore, do not represent the total measure of foreign terrorist infiltration of the United States.
  • A significant number of terrorists have entered the United States solely on the basis of family ties and extended-family chain migration.
    • Mufid Elfgeeh, who benefitted from chain migration, was sentenced to more than 22 years in prison for attempting to recruit fighters for ISIS.
    • Mahmoud Amin Mohamed Elhassan, who entered the United States as a relative of a lawful permanent resident, pleaded guilty to attempting to provide material support to ISIS.
    • Uzair Paracha, who entered the United States as a relative of a lawful permanent resident, was sentenced to more than 30 years in prison for providing material support to al Qaeda.
  • Terrorists have also entered the United States through the visa lottery program.
    • Abdurasaul Hasanovich Juraboev, who entered the United States through the visa lottery program, pleaded guilty to conspiring to support ISIS.
    • Ali Shukri Amin, who entered the United States as the child of a visa lottery recipient, was sentenced to more than 11 years in prison for conspiring to provide material support to ISIS.
  • The report by DOJ and DHS does not contain information regarding the number of terrorism and terrorism-related offenses committed by individuals who are the children of foreign-born individuals.
    • Terrorist attacks carried out by children of foreign-born individuals include the attack in Orlando by Omar Mateen, which killed 49 people and wounded more than 50 others, and the attack in San Bernadino, California by Syed Rizwan Farook, which killed 14 people and injured 22 others.
  • The report also found that in FY 2017, DHS had 2,554 encounters with individuals on the terrorist watchlist who had attempted to enter and infiltrate the United States.

GENDER-BASED VIOLENCE: The report by DOJ and DHS also sheds light on acts of gender-based violence committed against women by foreign nationals.

  • There are an average of 23 to 27 honor killings in the United States every year, according to a study commissioned and provided to DOJ’s Bureau of Justice Statistics in 2014.
    • The 2014 study also estimated that approximately 1,500 forced marriages occur in the U.S. every year.
  • More than 90 percent of the victims of honor killings in North America were murdered for being “too westernized,” according to a representative sample studied through open media sources.
  • The Government Accountability Office published a report in 2011 that found criminal aliens incarcerated in state and local prisons were convicted for 69,929 sex offenses between fiscal years 2003 and 2009.
  • According to a 2016 report by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the number of women and girls at risk of undergoing female genital mutilation (FGM) was three times higher in 2012 compared to 1990.
    • The CDC report states that the increase was entirely a result of the rapid growth in the number of immigrants from FGM practicing countries.

TIME TO END CHAIN MIGRATION AND THE VISA LOTTERY: This report shows, once again, that our current immigration system jeopardizes our national security.

  • By failing to impose meaningful selection criteria, such as skills or likelihood to assimilate, our current family-based system is incompatible with national security.
  • President Trump sent a list of priorities designed to enhance public safety and national security to Congress last October, which included the elimination of the visa lottery program and extended-family chain migration.
  • The Attorney General and Secretary of Homeland Security have repeatedly explained that our current immigration system compromises our national security.

ICE Overview

Published on Aug 22, 2017

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) enforces federal laws governing border control, customs, trade and immigration to promote homeland security and public safety. ICE was created in 2003 through a merger of the investigative and interior enforcement elements of the former U.S. Customs Service and the Immigration and Naturalization Service. ICE now has more than 20,000 employees in more than 400 offices in the United States and 46 foreign countries. The agency has an annual budget of approximately $6 billion, primarily devoted to two operational directorates — Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) and Homeland Security Investigations (HSI). These two operational directorates are supported by Management and Administration (M&A) and Office of the Principal Legal Advisor (OPLA) to advance the ICE mission.

Missouri doesn't have an illegal immigrant problem?

Interesting if true.

I wouldn't say they have "no illegals," but I'm guessing the numbers relative to state population are much lower than other states if the below is accurate.
Meanwhile, California wants to make healthcare free for everyone - legal or illegal....

Missouri has no illegal's; go figure. Shouldn't the other states do the same? Missouri's approach to the problem of illegal immigration appears to be more advanced, sophisticated, strict and effective than anything to date in Arizona. Does the White House appreciate what Missouri has done? So, why doesn't Missouri receive attention? Answer: There are no illegal's in Missouri to demonstrate.

The "Show Me" state has again shown us how it should be done. There needs to be more publicity and exposure regarding what Missouri has done. Please pass this around.

In 2007, Missouri placed on the ballot a proposed constitutional amendment designating English as the official language of Missouri. In November, 2008, nearly 90% voted in favor! Thus, English became the official language for ALL governmental activity in Missouri. No individual has the right to demand government services in a language OTHER than English.

In 2008, a measure was passed that required the Missouri Highway Patrol and other law enforcement officials to verify the immigration status of any person arrested, and inform federal authorities if the person is found to be in Missouri illegally. Missouri law enforcement officers receive specific training with respect to enforcement of federal immigration laws.

In Missouri, illegal immigrants do NOT have access to taxpayer benefits such as food stamps or health care through Missouri Health NET.

In 2009, a measure was passed that ensures Missouri's public institutions of higher education do NOT award financial aid to individuals who are illegally in the United States .

In Missouri all post-secondary institutions of higher education are required to annually certify to the Missouri Dept. Of Higher Education that they have NOT knowingly awarded financial aid to students who are unlawfully present in the United States.

So, while Arizona has made national news for its new law, it is important to remember, Missouri has been far more proactive in addressing this horrific problem. Missouri has made it clear that illegal immigrants are NOT WELCOME in the state and they will NOT receive public benefits at the expense of Missouri taxpayers.

"Sounds good to me. This is a good example of the States finding solutions to problems and the more effective ones are then available to other States to mimic. Kinda what the whole idea was regarding the individual states having the most say in State matters. Those founding guys were pretty smart. "
