Just to put a little perspective on how huge the immigration problem is in this country: the Houston Chronicle reports that Federal agents found 67 people at stash house for wetbacks. "Federal officials have charged six men with harboring scores of illegal immigrants who were found packed into a house in a quiet southeast Houston neighborhood. The one-story residence was one of many stash houses that smugglers use in Houston for holding illegal immigrants until they can be moved elsewhere or released after relatives pay a fee, investigators said." The Feds charged six Mexicans who were running the stash house with immigration offenses and false imprisonment.
The Chronicle goes on: "Federal officials said 67 people were found in a one-story house in the 7000 block of Schley about 12:30 p.m. Thursday after a man flagged down a Houston police officer and pleaded for help. The man said his relative and other people were being held in the home and that those holding them were demanding thousands of dollars for the person's release. The officer alerted U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. ICE agents took the occupants into custody, including a 9-year-old and 13 other juveniles, and will begin deportation procedures."
Would anyone care to hazard a guess on how many of those illegals will, in fact, be deported and how many will end up getting visas or simply being released?
One interesting aspect of things also appears in the article. "The immigrants include 26 from Honduras, 24 from El Salvador, 13 from Mexico and two each from Brazil and Guatemala." We tend to lump all Hispanic immigrants together as "Mexicans," but we need to remember that over 134 nationalities have been intercepted by the Border Patrol coming across our porous southern border, everything from Mexicans to Iranians to Nigerians. All of the Third World is using America as a dumping ground, and they're all coming across the Mexican border. There is some illegal immigration from the north, from Canada, but the vast bulk of the illegals enter from Mexico.
Now, multiply this one stash house with 67 beaners crammed into it by how many thousand similar such facilities all across the southern United States? Illegal immigrant smuggling is a large a lucrative business, which is why the present government we have now will never do anything about it--it has high profit margins for everyone down the line, except of course for the American worker who gets screwed.
