Most Americans are of the opinion that illegal immigrants are downtrodden victims who need a helping hand instead of a swift boot out of the country. After all, isn’t America a nation of immigrants? Many people ask: What ever happened to the iconic axiom on the Statue of Liberty: “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free“?
The issue here is simply what part of the word “illegal” is so hard to understand? Legal immigration is the way law-abiding, people with core integrity have honestly come to this country for over a century. They recognize the rule of law. They honor and respect the nation and state in which they reside. They make good neighbors and are often good friends with existing citizens.
Conversely, does it not make sense that those who enter “illegally” are not so much driven by economic necessity, but by a deep-seated prevalence for making a “quick buck” no matter who is victimized in the process?
VICTIMIZED? Who could possibly be “victimized” by illegal immigrants? These poor, wretched, downtrodden folks are the only victims, right?
WRONG! WRONG! WRONG! Check out the facts. Did you know that each and every day, over 25 American citizens are killed by the actions of “illegal” immigrants across America? Do the math. This means that since September 11, 2001 a total of 105,375 Americans have died from the activities of “illegal” aliens. Half of the deaths are from violent crimes, while the other half is from traffic fatalities or other “accidents”. Source: http://www.firecoalition.com/docs/criminalalienstatistics.pdf
Think about this for just a few minutes. 105,375 American deaths directly due to illegal immigrants. That’s nearly as many American dead during WWI (116,516), and is more American deaths than the Korean “Conflict”(36,516) and the Vietnam War (58,209) combined.

Why are these statistics not shown on the “controlled” media TV and Newspapers – who constantly lean toward relaxing immigration enforcement? Why is it not disclosed that there are well over 300,000 illegal aliens incarcerated in federal, state, and local prisons and jails?

Welcome to Reality Friends – and it’s not pretty. Just take a look at a small sampling of innocent victims.
Here’s little 9 month old Serenity Reed, a blonde blue-eyed little darling who is now yet another “statistic”. From the Barstow California Examiner we read about the horrific and shocking events of June 7-8, 2013 that has escaped the nation’s attention:
“On Saturday, police in Barstow arrested Jose Luis Aguilar, 36, at a Greyhound bus station after he reportedly sexually assaulted and beat his girlfriend’s baby daughter to death.
A day earlier, the baby’s mother, Jennifer Reedy, 31, awoke to find her daughter lying dead in her crib.
Aguilar was gone, as was Reedy’s car and money from her purse.
Police were able to find Aguilar using the GPS in his cellphone.
At a press conference Benton County prosecutor Andy Miller, told reporters: “It appears that Mr. Aguilar was on his way to flee to Mexico.”
The Tri-City Herald reported:
Serenity suffered at least two separate skull fractures, the affidavit said. Beneath the skull fractures were subdural hematomas — injuries which can result from major head trauma. Wigren found hemorrhaging around her eyes and bleeding in part of her brain.
Aguilar has been charged with first-degree manslaughter and is currently being held at the West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga without bail. More charges are expected to be filed.
Incredible! Aguilar is just one of over 300,000 “illegal alien” inmates being imprisoned at U.S. taxpayer’s expense. Do you still think “Illegal Immigration” is a “victimless” crime – not worthy of your concern?
If so, then take a minute and review a small sampling of other victim’s stories:
TEXAS – Houston mother of five, Tina Davila (pictured), was stabbed to death in 2008 when Timoteo Rios tried to hijack her SUV, but she refused to give up the keys because her 4-month-old baby was in the vehicle. The killer was identified by the surveillance tapes from the store near the crime had been arrested earlier for marijuana possession but had not been deported. He quickly fled to Mexico.
The murder deprived five children of their loving mom, and that kind of pain never goes away. Her family are relieved that some justice may be at hand.
Rios, an illegal alien with a criminal record, had admitted to local law enforcement twice before the slaying that he was in the country illegally, but had not been deported, according to arrest and immigration records.
NEW JERSEY – In August 2007, three college students who were hanging out in a schoolyard were brutally attacked and shot to death by six MS-13 gangsters. Another young woman managed to survive, despite her terrible injuries, which have left her with facial paralysis to this day. The two women were raped and hacked with machetes.
One man, Melvin Jovel, confessed to being the only shooter, and he was sentenced to life in prison.
ALABAMA – There are many tragic stories about the victims of illegal alien criminals, but it doesn’t get much worse than the deaths of Leigh Anna Jimmerson, 16, and her boyfriend, Tad Mattle, 19. The couple died in a fiery crash in April 2009 when their car burst into flames after being struck by illegal alien Felix Ortega, who was drunk at three times the legal limit for Alabama.
The prosecutor put together a deal where Ortega pleaded guilty to two murders in return for a 15 year sentence and eligibility for parole in 12.5 years. It was acceptable to both families who presumably didn’t want to go through a trial where the horrific details of their kids’ deaths would be brought out. Even so, the plea agreement seems weak punishment indeed for the preventable deaths of two young people with their whole lives ahead of them.
Why didn’t their country protect them from foreign criminals?
AUSTIN – A stiff sentence was handed down to Jaime Alvarado, a serial drunk-driving twice-deported illegal alien, who killed Nashville business-man Robert Benn shortly after he arrived in Austin for a new job.
Benn was driving from the airport when his car was struck by the inebriated Alvarado as the Guatemalan was fleeing police because he feared being deported.
In a cruel coincidence for the family, Benn’s granddaughter was born a few hours before he was killed, so he never got to meet her. Robert Benn was 64 and had three children.
Alvarado did not stop, even though officer Christopher Geck turned on his lights and sirens attempting to make a traffic stop. Alvarado said he was afraid of being deported and ultimately decided he would try to drive home before being arrested so his SUV would not be impounded. [. . .]
Alvarado, who had a 0.20 blood alcohol level, 2-1/2 times the legal limit, suffered only minor injuries.
VIRGINIA – On August 1, a previously arrested drunk-driving illegal alien killed a nun, Denise Mosier (pictured left), and seriously injured two others. The alien, Carlos Martinelly Montano (pictured right), had twice been handed over to ICE for deportation, but had instead been released into the community pending a deportation hearing (occasions which have notably poor attendance among those invited).
A few days later, the Chairman of the Prince William County board of supervisors, Corey Stewart requested information from ICE that would reveal how many illegal aliens are being released by the agency into the county and their crimes.
The rather surprising news is that ICE agreed.
The public hears too little about the crime victims of unlawful foreigners; the liberal press prefers to swoon over foreign perps and their sufferings in pursuit of a “better life” rather than consider the human tragedies caused by open borders.
The accused killer, Bolivian Carlos Montano, had earlier been handed over to ICE for deportation (twice!) but instead was released onto American streets. He had spent 20 days in jail for two drunk-driving convictions, so was clearly a bad crash waiting to happen. An obviously dangerous illegal alien was released with deadly consequences.
Alfredo Ramos, the alien later found guilty of killing Tessa Tranchant and her friend Alison Kunhardt, had been convicted twice of alcohol-related crimes but was not deported, seemed invisible in a system that was good at looking the other way. Virginia Beach and Chesapeake were rightly accused of being “sanctuary cities.”
