Illegal Immigration – We Are At War

Laken Hope Riley; war on illegal immigration

Today, we are all Laken Hope Riley.  If the name does not move you, it should. We are losing young people at a record pace. Only in war do we lose more, maybe not then. Truth is, we are at war.

Laken Hope Riley was a hopeful, believing, cheerful, smart American woman, 22, who wanted to be a nurse, to help others. She believed in the American dream, worked for it, supported by her family, faith, and friends – was killed by a criminal alien, one of eight million, none of whom should even be here.

Laken’s story, in a way, is the American story, writ small. Filled with dreaming and doing, hoping and working, she aimed to serve others, had faith, and lifted all those around her.  She never imagined she would die running on her college campus, brutally killed by an illegal.

If we are taught to understand that God’s will is mysterious, that every life is somehow complete as lived, it still hurts. Hers feels horribly incomplete, senselessly taken, and unnecessary evil bursting into her world.

She was killed by a 26-year-old illegal immigrant, a criminal, glibly waved in by senseless border policies, coddled by Democrats giving him “sanctuary” from detention and deportation. Caught twice, released twice, he bore no accountability for his acts – a jackal among the fowl, wholly immoral.

This illegal alien, coming from Venezuela via Mexico, where brutality is taught on the streets and by a communist government, had no interest in citizenship, assimilating, American history, or abiding by laws. He was an animal but learned quickly one lesson – In Biden’s America, there is no accountability.

That lesson, sadly, is being learned by millions, perhaps tens of millions, who cross our border illegally. They traffic more drugs annually than needed to kill the whole country, enslave thousands of girls for sex, then kill them and harvest their organs, yes, right here in America.

Mexican cartels, syndicates, and gangs are trafficking victims in unprecedented numbers, seeing a green light, while Chinese, Middle Eastern, and “terror watch list” entrants pour in, even up north – no effort to stop them, just paper-thin, overworked, and overwhelmed law enforcement.

We have leaders – most of them unrepentant Democrats – providing excuses for a thoughtless border policy, shipping unvetted illegals coast to coast, criminals in their midst, depositing them in states ill-equipped to manage their needs or high criminality.

Today, 64 percent of all federal crimes are committed by non-citizens, despite their prevalence of seven percent in the population. Thousands of crimes are committed by them annually, no accountability.

Rather than oppose these immoral policies, and distortion of asylum law, many Democrats favor the flood, placing citizens at physical, mental, and emotional risk, forcing horrors on them, like Laken’s death.

In Maine, unvetted illegals continue to arrive, many likely criminals – shipped up by the federal government and inexplicably “welcomed” as “New Americans” by Maine’s Democrat governor, then loosed to do what they may, some even accommodated in housing intended for homeless veterans.

Can it get any worse? Actually, yes. Many of those pushing illegal behavior, drug, and human trafficking, are tied to transnational criminal organizations (TCOs), Mexican cartels, and Chinese triads.

Once a state says, “Come in,” lawbreakers take root, setting up fentanyl distribution, mass “grow houses” for high-potency THC, trafficking drugs, girls, and fear, linked by a disregard for law, life, and normalcy.

What we are experiencing is death by a thousand cuts, the power of indifference to illegality, immorality, and citizen safety – which results in a vicious circle, ever more of the same, until the battlespace is won by lawless actors, not deterred in time, eventually in charge, just a larger version of Venezuela.

America’s leaders – in both parties – misunderstand the stakes, underestimate what we are up against, pretend the damage is acceptable, that these illegals want to be citizens, harm somehow small.

Wrong. While some may want citizenship the immoral gamble for illegal votes is self-defeating. America – the land of liberty, law-abiding, constitutional, safe, and freedom from fear – will change.

We are at war – right here at home – with foreign countries and ideologies, engaged in a great struggle for truth, stability, our individual freedoms, and the American way.

We are at war with cartels, TCOs, and terror aiming to destabilize us. We can win – if we step up and see the stakes. But not to see things as they are, pretending all is well, perpetuates an illusion of safety.

Today, we still have the power to put this right and exercise freedom for good, but time is short to properly assess the enormity of the risk and vulnerability of the country, and to acknowledge we are effectively at war.

Our common love of liberty means we need to start seeing things as they are, not as we wish them to be. We need – with unity – to stop the inflow of lawlessness and return to respect for law, America.

If Laken Hope Riley is America writ small, there is more to her death than mourning. This woman’s murder by a non-citizen was preventable and prophetic. Her fate, in some ways, is emblematic and tragic. Bottom line: If we cannot get ahead of this battle now, her fate will also be ours.

This is well said but unfortunately two things come to mind. Who are we at war with? Obviously the law breaking illegal entrants to our country is number one, but those who ‘opened’ the gate and refused (on purpose) to enforce our laws is number two.
It does our society absolutely NO good to have laws on the books that are NOT enforced. Consequences have to be considered for all of us, not just those in current ‘favor’.
Here’s an easy example: arguments are many “that they’re (the illegals) just trying to get ahead”. Well, I’d love to break a couple laws (tax law) because “I’m just trying to get ahead”.

Excellent article. Shows the disregard for Americans by biden and democrats. Laken Hope Riley and ALL the other Americans raped, attacked, and killed by the Illegal Alien Terrorist Invaders has blood on biden and his administrations hands since they are solely responsible for the Illegal Alien Terrorist Invasion and ATTACK on Americans.

Those of us who understand the facts , who can realize the truth presented in this article need to keep in mind that this war against the despicable, dishonorable enemies of freedom and civilization will require duties and obligations. The spirit of what this article describes ,how the criminal alien element needs to be stopped – should be part of our everyday plan of action to achieve victory for good over evil. To remember Laken Hope Riley – and to help prevent others like her from being casualties in this very real war , here in the United States of America – that will provide incentive for doing what is necessary to defend liberty and civilization. This country defeated evil before – during the 1940’s , fighting the Nazi and Japanese enemies – it is at the doorstep now and we need to believe that victory is possible. Great writing Robert – Well Done for sure – this article should provide much of what is needed to help strengthen the country in this duty and obligation to defend all that is good and right. God bless America. Land of the free and home of the brave.

Who is more at fault: the crazed dog that bites or the owner who intentionally leaves the gate open? It must be nice to own your own press when Democrats can call a few thousand, unarmed people storming the Capitol an “insurrection” but nearly 10 million people illegally entering our country is not “invaders” but “newcomers”. Crime will only get worse so get ready for more Laken Rileys.

This is only the beginning there will be more since we do not know what has come into this country. This is the fault of Biden and Harris and the members of all the parties up in Washington for not closing the border and getting the states that harbor these illegal criminals a lot of these judges should be arrested as well releasing these people back on the streets to commit more crime.

Nothing will change with the Democrats controlling the White House and Senate. Republicans will win on this issue, and we will control our border and deport this trash out of the USA.

Thank you, Robert, for such a well written and thought out article addressing the proverbial “elephant in the room.” First off, my heart breaks for Laken Hope Riley and her family. A beautiful, young woman with so many dreams and a promising future. Why? Why is she gone? Because once again our lawmakers are out playing a round of golf, arguing over nonessential matters on the “hill” and promising not to come together and govern in a bipartisanship manner. Yes, Biden has done a very poor job managing the border and shame on him. But, sadly the border issues have been horrible for years. From someone who has lived and taught in Texas off and on for twenty years, I can tell you that illegal immigrants have been flooding our country for decades. My second teaching job was in Alice, Texas – south of San Antonio and a straight shot from Laredo. The dynamics of my classroom changed daily due to the influx of illegal immigrants. That was back in the 70’s! In 2007 I moved to Houston and found that life there was terrifying due to the influx of the Mexican cartel, syndicates, and gangs. My point in all of this is simple – we must stop blaming the other side and come to realize that both parties over the years have failed our country. It is time to come together and demand that they earn their paychecks! If any of us worked as poorly as our politicians, we would be unemployed! We are running out of time. Being empathetic and tolerant to how others think, compassionate, and courageous enough to be a leader and a problem solver, rather than a follower, should be an important goal for all of us. We can’t give up!

This is not illegal immigration it is an open invasion There is no border anymore Our own government orchestrated this in order to transform America This is only a prelude of things to come There is no way to stop these creatures I will not call them animals because animal does not kill for a pleasure I doubt this would be happening if they were forced to stay in Mexico I hope parents of any child killed by these brutes sue the government that is responsible for these murders Was there not an attempt to push The Kate law?

Well said, Robert. It’s mind numbing to think this is happening in our country…but it is. I share posts on social media from various sources and I’m constantly reminding folks we have to start thinking differently, looking at our surroundings and assessing things at all times. Different times call for different measures.

Some cities have voted or claim to be sanctuary cities & that is their choice . How much do these open cities contribute to spreading these illegals all over this country? And have any of these cities changed there mind on proclaiming sanctuary status?

Most Americans watch this unfold from afar on TV, unaffected directly by this invasion, for now! But every American will pay and be affected directly in the future. Sanctuary cities have all gone broke, paying to feed, house, clothe and educate the millions of invaders they welcomed. These cities then expect the federal government to bail them out. No! Biden leftists have said that “we need all these workers to do jobs Americans won’t do”. That will make it hard for citizens to find jobs and also cause wages to drop, while taxes will have to be increased to pay for it. Biden’s real purpose for these traitorous acts, is of course millions more votes, (election fraud) You might say, that’s illegal, but when did that ever stop a Biden?

During Commie Obamie’s regime of deliberate destruction, the anti-Republic traitor corrupted and weaponized multiple federal departments under his control, especially the Department of Justice (DOJ). Now, under the fraud puppets (JoeBama’s term of misery and death), the destructive flow of drugs and mayhem by unvetted illegals continues. Illegals, given free-free-free will likely result in D votes…so the hell with consequences (or perhaps love the consequences, if your end-game is to destroy our Republic). Case in point: DOJ asked the court to temporarily block enforcement of the state law that gives Texas authorities the ability to arrest anyone they believe has crossed into the U.S. illegally.
