(National Sentinel)Â Heartbreaking: News this week that 20-year-old University of Iowa sophomore Mollie Tibbetts had her life prematurely ended by an illegal alien who appears to have been taken with her romantically is tragic and sad on so many levels, not the least of which was the fact that much of the nation tuned in daily to see if authorities had made any progress in locating her after she went missing a month ago.
That she was eventually found dead is heartbreaking, of course. News of her death was even madeÂ more maddeningÂ by reports she was allegedly killed byÂ an illegal alien.
“But for every Rivera, there are hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants who commit crimes that do not make news beyond their local communities. Those illegal immigrants consume most of the energy and time of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers throughout the country,”Â Lifezette reported Wednesday.
Many AmericansÂ who only get theirÂ ‘news’Â from fake news centralÂ CNN,Â MSNBC, and the legacy newspapersÂ don’t know that, because they’re only told how many new protests there have been against Immigration and Customs Enforcement, whose officers are ‘literally ripping children’ out of the arms of their illegal immigrant parents. It’s hogwash and it’sÂ unnecessary inflammatory.
Besides that, it masks a much larger, far more serious issue: The fact that for every average American being fed the BS about ICE and the Trump administration’s immigration enforcement efforts,Â they are put at much higher risk of injury and death by someone in our country illegally, according to the statistics.
â€œI donâ€™t think people have any appreciation of the huge numbers of crimes ICE deals with,â€ Matthew Oâ€™Brien, director of research at the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), told the website.
As a lawyer for ICE, he said he dealtÂ with 16 to 20 deportation cases a day andÂ the vast majority of them involvedÂ criminal aliens.
The Trump administration attempted to cut through the harmful media and Democratic rhetoric by putting out some disturbing statistics about illegal immigrants and their criminal behavior:
In fiscal year 2017, ICE arrested 127,000 people with pending charges or criminal records. Those crimes included:
- More than 1,800 homicides
- More than 48,000 assaults
- More than 11,000 weapons offenses
- More than 5,000 sexual assaults
- More than 2,000 kidnappings
Mind you,Â each one of these crimes represents an injustice to aÂ real human being. And the vast majority of them are being committedÂ against U.S. citizens.
Open borders and unlimited immigration typesÂ love to cite data pointing to the fact that American citizens commit crimes at a higher rate than do immigrants, illegal and otherwise.
Why is that relevant? Because as O’Brien pointed out, “Every crime committed by an illegal alien is an inherently preventable crime” becauseÂ they shouldn’t have been here in the first place.
â€œI think a lot of people do appreciate what ICE is dealing with and want immigration laws enforced, not just against criminals,â€ Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies at the Washington-based Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), told Lifezette.Â â€œPeople who live in areas with lots of illegal immigrants see that some types of crime are more associated with illegal immigrants.â€
But for some reason, Democrats in Congress and theirÂ propaganda wing, the ‘mainstream media,’ couldn’t care less about the Mollie Tibbetts’ and Kate Steinle’s that are being butchered in American cities and throughout the country.
Until Republicans in Congress (because the Democrats aren’t going to do it)Â get more serious about border security than counting donations from corporate donors hooked on cheap illegal immigrant labor, thenÂ more American citizensÂ are going to be murdered and brutalized by peopleÂ who have no right to be here.
