High Costs of Illegal Immigration


Lou Dobbs

Listen to this report from 2006. It’s prophetic.

Texas Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst said that unaccompanied minors only make up a “tiny fraction” of the illegals currently entering the nation and suggested the media is selling a dishonest narrative.

“The media would have you believe that the whole crisis on the border is exclusively about unaccompanied children,” he said. “It is not just about unaccompanied children — unaccompanied children represent but a tiny fraction of the illegals who cross our border every day, according to the Border Patrol.”

There is a huge “criminal element” at the border that includes significant gang activity, according to Dewhurst. “We’ve seen estimates that at least a quarter of those apprehended have criminal records,” he added.

Barack Obama has ordered through his underlings the release of gang youth into our neighborhoods. He is also the man who has overseen the release of 36,000 criminal illegals in the last year.

With all this going on, Barack Obama is flying the illegals all over the country, chartering private jets, allowing them to bypass security, and he’s letting them go with only an appearance ticket. The court hearings are taking place and the illegals are not showing up.

The costs to citizens will be very high.

Someone needs to stop Barack Obama but the American people are apathetic. A new poll shows that 48% thinks he’s doing a good job. How is it even possible that 48% of our countrymen are that ill-informed?
