- According to a new poll by Pew Research, 69% of those surveyed are opposed to increasing the levels of immigration in this country.
- Only 24% said they would like to see higher levels of immigration.
- In fact, 29% said that the country should halt immigration altogether.
- Pew also surveyed 27 other countries and the results were similar to the U.S. results: almost no one anywhere wants more immigration into their country.
- Research by the Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI), Obama’s Department of Health and Human Services gave robust, expensive contracts to a single nonprofit group in 2015 and 2016.
- The value of these contracts were $310 million.
- The money was then used to prevent the deportation of “Unaccompanied Alien Child (UACs)” back to their home country.
- In other words, the American taxpayer was paying to support the actions of those foreigners that had violated current federal law.
- UACs are kids that are in this country illegally and they have no parent or legal guardian already in the country who can care for them.
- Now while one could claim that a kid should have legal representation in an immigration court proceeding, according to current law, that representation should not be paid for by the American taxpayer: “Sec. 292. [8 U.S.C. 1362] In any removal proceedings before an immigration judge and in any appeal proceedings before the Attorney General from any such removal proceedings, the person concerned shall have the privilege of being represented (at no expense to the Government) by such counsel, authorized to practice in such proceedings, as he shall choose.”
- In other words, the Obama administration blatantly broke the law to attain a political aim and the American taxpayer, of which 69% want no increase in immigration, paid for the breaking of that law.
- According to Dale L. Wilcox, executive director and general counsel of IRLI: “These unauthorized payments have undoubtedly speeded-up UACs’ release from detention facilities to join their families, relatives, or fellow gang members – or help them reconnect with and pay ‘pandillas,’ the criminal cartels that make enormous profits from controlling human trafficking over the southern border. My guess is that average voters would not be pleased to know that such vast amounts of their tax dollars are being spent in aid of this giant criminal enterprise.”
- According to Chris Prandoni, writing for the Americans For Tax Reform website back in 2011, government employees at all levels of government are overpaid about $468 billion a year.
- This is the estimate that was created by controlling for factors such as education, age, experience, intangible benefits (job security) for Federal government workers vs. comparable workers in the private sector.
- Federal government employee wages are on average are 22% higher than what private sector employees own for the same jobs.
- Reducing Federal government wages to the privater employee level would save the American taxpayer $46 billion a year.
- If you include wages AND total other benefits, Federal government employees earn 30-40% more than private sector employees.
- Federal employees also get 13 paid sick days every year and 10 days off for national holidays.
- Federal employees receive 22% more in employer payments toward their health care than their private sector counterparts.
- Gavin Clarkson is a politician from the state of New Mexico.
- He and his fiancee recently applied for a marriage license in Washington D.C. where the planned marriage ceremony was going to be held.
- But when he went to D.C.’s Courts Marriage Bureau in November, the clerk handling their marriage license request refused to issue the license.
- Apparently the government employee did not know that New Mexico was an actual one of the fifty states in the U.S.
- Let me repeat that last insanity: the government clerk did not believe that New Mexico was part of the United States.
- The clerk would not accept Clarkson’s valid New Mexico driver’s license as proof of his identity and insisted that Clarkson produce an international passport since he assumed Clarkson was a foreign citizen...from New Mexico.
- Even worse, the clerk verified his position with his supervisor who supported the clerk, with him also claiming that Clarkson needed an international passport.
- The clerk even complimented Clarkson on how well he spoke English since he was a foreigner….from New Mexico.
