Only 250,000 Illegals Flood Across Border

Media Heralds This as Great News

Invasion by a quarter million isn't a problem?

The lamestream media told you:

(Daniel Gonzalez) -- "How many migrants successfully enter the U.S. each year by crossing the border illegally?

"According to recent polls, Americans believe the number has been increasing rapidly, while in fact, the number has decreased significantly. Increased border security already in place is a major reason.

"New research by a former Dept. of Homeland Security official found that successful illegal entries, including people who had crossed multiple times, plummeted to 250,000 in 2015. That figure represents one-tenth as many successful illegal crossings as in 2005, the study reports..."

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Perpetual illegal-immigration apologist disguised as Gannett "news" reporter Daniel Gonzalez, in a page-one story, suggests that a mere quarter-million invading illegal aliens is such an improvement we should be happy for the wonderful results. The online version of this story puts the figure at only 170,000 people, without explaining the difference. http://www.azcentral.com/story/news/politics/border-issues/2016/10/09/how-many-mexicans-actually-cross-border-illegally/91280026/

He claims the $130 billion spent on added security has been a major deterrent to Mexicans. Presumably, it has been a deterrent to Central Americans too, and the muslim jihadis other sources tell us are coming across the southern border and insinuating themselves into our midst.

Why this study comes from a retired individual and not an agency is unexplained. How this person counts people who slipped through undetected is unexplained. How the person figures out some of them came in, were deported, and came back again, undetected, is unexplained. Why we should accept any of this is unexplained. The next effect of a quarter-million illegal alien invaders whose destination and intentions are unknown, this year alone, should be terrifying, not presented as a vast improvement. Where is last year's batch of invaders? That's enough to replace the entire population of cities like Orlando, Jersey City, Ft. Wayne, Madison, Norfolk, Scottsdale, Baton Rouge, Boise, Spokane, or Berkeley twice over. The rumor that in Berkeley this would be an improvement was unexplained.

In other news, during his Senate race debate, Sen. John McCain claimed we are building border watchtowers at a cost of $3 million each (PBS-TV, 10/10/16). You can buy a 4,000-foot mansion for $3 million, with state-of-the-art security, a pool, a putting green and multiple bedrooms and baths. Just what kind of guard towers are these? (He didn't elaborate.) Requests for information from the three reporters went immediately unanswered, and still.

If a security system grants unauthorized access to 685 people every day (do the math), and this is a vast improvement over the prior system (which it apparently is), someone's head belongs on a pike, and I'm not referring to the illegals.
