A single Border Patrol station in California just caught its 30th sex offender illegal alien this year.
Jose Humberto Ojeda-Gutierrez, a 30-year-old Mexican national, was arrested by agents of the Calexico Border Patrol Office, Timothy Meads at Townhall.com reports. Ojeda-Gutierrez had been previously convicted of sexual assault of an American minor in 2004, Meads reports, and was deported.
“The most recent Border Patrol statistics indicate that CBP agents have arrested at least 72 sex offenders in the 2018 fiscal year,” Meads writes.
Tragically, there are a whole lot more people like Ojeda-Gutierrez running around in our country.
Sanctuary for Sex Criminals
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement had requested that Honduran illegal alien Juan Ramon Vasquez be detained by Philadelphia police after a 2014 arrest.
But Philadelphia is a “sanctuary city.” Vasquez was set loose… and raped a 5-year-old girl.
The Florence, Alabama TimesDaily reported in July that “[a]uthorities said an illegal immigrant out of jail on bond for rape and sexual assault who was about to be deported is back in jail on new charges.”
Juan Estuadro Fuentes was charged with “five counts of production of child pornography, and five counts of possession of child pornography.”
Arrested in June on rape and sexual abuse charges, he amazingly was able to post bond, despite being an illegal alien and obvious flight risk.
“He made bond and immigration agents came to Florence and picked up him to be deported after it was determined he was in the county illegally,” Sheriff’s investigator James Distefano said. The new charges will prevent his immediate deportation.
There are many more examples that could be recounted here.
When President Trump warned in June about the dangers of allowing illegal aliens to “pour into and infest” our country, these are the people he was talking about.
Democrats are the problem. They don’t care about crime and want illegal immigrants, no matter how bad they may be, to pour into and infest our Country, like MS-13. They can’t win on their terrible policies, so they view them as potential voters!

Financial Drain on the Nation
But this is not the only way the nation is “enriched” by unchecked waves of immigration.
A report by the Center for Immigration Studies reveals that “51 percent of immigrant-headed households used at least one federal welfare program — cash, food, housing, or medical care.”
Among other findings, CIS reported that:
The average household headed by an immigrant (legal or illegal) costs taxpayers $6,234 in federal welfare benefits, which is 41 percent higher than the $4,431 received by the average native household.
The average immigrant household consumes 33 percent more cash welfare, 57 percent more food assistance, and 44 percent more Medicaid dollars than the average native household. Housing costs are about the same for both groups.
At $8,251, households headed by immigrants from Central America and Mexico have the highest welfare costs of any sending region — 86 percent higher than the costs of native households.
Spencer Raley, writing for the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), backs up the finding that immigration is often a burden on the U.S. taxpayer, saying:
From 2013 through 2016, the United States immigrant population grew at a net rate of approximately 530,000 individuals each year. The Census Bureau’s 2014 Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP) revealed that approximately 50 percent of households headed by an immigrant used some form of welfare for themselves or another person in their household. The survey also indicated that approximately 90 percent are likely to remain on some form of welfare after 20 years, based on historical numbers.
Ninety percent still on some form of welfare after 20 years!
Yet the Trump administration’s plan to reduce the number of new U.S. citizens who will be a public burden is slammed in the mainstream media with the usual hysteria:
“Plan to punish immigrants for using welfare” – New York Times
“Trump’s new war on immigrants” – The New Yorker
“Trump’s New Strategy to Demonize Immigrants” – The New Republic
Taking this leftist logic to its most vile extreme, Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner actually blamed the Trump administration for illegal alien sex crimes.
“The Trump administration has made it so that immigrant children can get raped because they’re afraid to call the police,” Krasner shockingly said in response to the Vasquez arrest.
They can’t help it with the over-the-top remarks. They’re all in.
Liberals in public office and in the mainstream media are determined to see through their open-borders agenda to the bitter end, no matter the cost to the personal safety or financial well-being of the American people.
