These 8 Graphics Explain How Bad the Illegal Immigration Crisis Really Is

For months, Democrats denied the illegal immigration crisis at the southern border, with Sen. Chuck Schumer, flanked by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, going so far as to accuse President Donald Trump of working to “manufacture a crisis, stoke fear and divert attention from the turmoil in his administration.”

The president, on the other hand, has made the situation on the southern border a top priority, in January declaring it both a “humanitarian and security crisis,” and stressing it ever since.

So how bad is it? The Daily Signal rounded up some of the most striking statistics to explain the current crisis.

Apprehensions are just a drop in the bucket. I’ve had a number of friends who served in the Border Patrol over the years and they have all told me the same thing. There are many more that they don’t catch than those they do.

The crisis has been engineered and then consistently denied by the democrat party leadership. A vote for a democrat is a vote to support the invasion of America that is going on right now.

Every rape, every murder, every illegal vote and every welfare dollar going to support this invasion is on the heads of these anti-American politicians and those who vote them into office.

The saddest part of this whole mess at the Southern border is it shows the Dem leadership HATES America. They do not want to solve problems or listen to the American People. They have a Socialist agenda that goes against everything America has stood for. I hope we are able to send a loud, clear message at the ballot box this next major election.

The democrats need more voters to take over the country. Since they are having trouble gaining more
votes thru socialist ideas they will just import them thru illegals. Giving them drivers licenses they are
registered to vote thru the motor voter act. What happens? Your vote is cancelled out by illegals and
democrats win elections.

The Democratic senators and congress personnel responsible for not following our laws should be impeached. What is wrong with them?

It’s not going to stop unless we militarize the border and deny all asylum claims. There are 6.5 BILLION people in the world living below the US poverty level. Politicians deny it, American’s don’t know it, but it’s common knowledge in the third world we’re giving free emergency health care and EBT cards and cell phones and subsidized housing to illegal aliens. Imagine letting anyone who wanted to get on an airplane and land at JFK and simply bypass Customs and Immigration, get a free medical, a free EBT card and cell phone and a free limo ride to their new apartment. That’s what we’re doing for uncounted and unrecorded millions of them each year. They may have to pay the coyotes $5,000 to let them cross the border, but once they’re here they’ve got it made for life. Wait until the tramp steamers from Africa start showing up in… Read more »

Thank you Trump for ending NAFTA!! I was a trucker when NAFTA went into effect and US drivers were being hit by so many terrible gov’t restrictions while trucks were coming from Mexico falling apart. It hit the Industry hard and it was all about Corporate Greed. So many jobs and lives lost and it’s easy to stash a few kilos of heroin on an eighteen wheeler! Or people!! I have seen it!

it seems the libs hate America, they don’t like the flag, want to change it, don’t like the National Anthem, want to change to per ob of all things it’s a small world, they don’t like the pledge of allegiance, apparently don’t like being committed to the USA even though they take the oath of office when elected apparently for show only as they violate this oath at every opportunity, and they for sure don’t like boarder security as they look at every illegal as a potential voter.
GOD BLESS THE USA
and thank you for President Trump.
no he’s not perfect but does want the best for the USA

What a shame for this country if this is not stopped somehow. The Democrats have lost their mind!

HAL HOFFMAN

IS IT TIME TO CALL OUT THE MILITIA?????????????????

The Democrats are a bunch of Vile individuals! President Trump, has been telling them about the Border Crisis for over Two Years. There, still Butt-Hurt since they lost the Election.

Almos Berry

Maybe it’s time for the American People to get involved and help out at the southern border by covering areas where the Border Patrol is short of man power!

Todd Taylor

Are American borders sovereign? Does our country have the will to enforce the law? They are coming because they have been promised free Medicare, free education and the vote. Enough is enough.

Stephen Russell

Show these in senior centers, retirement homes, schools, high schools, colleges & start debate on

Dr. Mike Reeder

“Apprehensions” is the tip of the iceberg. How about measuring those that actually made it and are decent people and which are thieves and killers. How many got in that were not apprehended? Democrats “sit on their hands in congress while Mexico does more to stop this nonsense that they do!

JOHN TOMY

GEE, THE DEMOCRATS SAID THERE IS NO CRISIS ON THE BORDER. NOW THEY ADMIT IT BUT THE DEMOCRATS IN THE HOUSE ARE UNWILLING TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT EXCEPT BLAME PRESIDENT TRUMP!

Down size this article to a” one sheet” , I would like to print copies and pass them around , post then on notice boards at food- marts etc..

When we have reached the point where even our elected officials are engaging in and encouraging non-compliance with our laws the only relative data is how many of them are being indicted and prosecuted.

Stephen Lykins

The Democrats claim most of these people are refugees from Socialist regimes like Venezuela so their solution is to turn the USA into Venezuela II so they will no longer have the incentive to come here ILLEGALLY!

Dave Campbell

If you hate The United States of America, vote for Democrats.

Why does’t Schummer and Pelosi go down to the border and see for themselves just how bad it is? They just won’t believe it or don’t care.
