This flier landed in my inbox and it got me to thinking. On one hand, we don't want people to die or needlessly suffer. On the other hand, Border Angels aids and abets criminals by not notifying Immigration and Customs Enforcement about their contact with suspected trespassers.
I suppose the best of both worlds would be for Border Angels to give food and comfort to criminal trespassers while waiting for ICE to arrive. If we had enough eyes on the border in the first place to catch trespassers as they climb over the fence, there would be VERY few criminal trespassers wandering and dying in the
deserts and very little need for Border Angels. U.S.
Border Angels, however, believes it is completely acceptable for criminal trespassers to enter the
, use our educational system, healthcare system, legal system, as well as the rest of our infrastructure. Their website is clear that they pay taxes which, in Border Angels' opinion makes it all ok. The problem is that the wealthiest 1% pay for the majority of the services they use. And then their are those reports that they contribute to Social Security. It is impossible for them to LEGALLY contribute unless they have a work visa, green card, or are otherwise allowed to work in the U.S.A. Therefore, if criminal trespassers are paying Social Security or income tax, they are also committing tax fraud and quite likely identity theft. The burden is real and growing as long as we continue to give away our way of life simply to be politically correct. U.S.A. without permission
We can be good humanitarians AND respect our lawful sovereignty.
