To The Daily Sun,
Except when illegal aliens commit sensational crimes, the media promotes the politicians' idea that we should have compassion for the illegal aliens because they "live in the shadows". But this is mostly a myth.
There is little reason for illegal aliens to live in the shadows any more than any of us. In 2013 the Obama administration allowed over 100,000 convicted criminal illegal aliens, including murderers and rapists, to go free in our country. Last year the Obama administration released many thousands more criminals including 193 convicted murderers and about 300 convicted kidnappers in our country.
Recently we learned about some of these illegal-alien criminals. Francisco Sanchez had been deported five times and convicted of seven felonies before finding sanctuary in San Francisco and killing Kathryn Steinle. Victor Ramirez had been arrested six times including for sexual assault and gun possession before allegedly raping and beating Marilyn Pharis to death with a hammer. Why should any illegal aliens "live in the shadows" when violent criminal illegal aliens are allowed to stay here?
About 60 percent of illegal-alien households receive some form of welfare, obviously they aren't in the shadows when they apply for or collect welfare. Illegal aliens aren't in the shadows when they go to our hospitals, send their children to our schools, participate in protests, wait in known locations looking for work, apply for drivers' licenses, when they apply for income tax refunds, etc.
Illegal aliens in America's 276 sanctuary cities don't need to live in the shadows since these cities don't cooperate with the federal immigration control which rarely enforces our laws anyway. President Obama has even promised to veto Kate's Law which is intended to incarcerate illegal aliens who return illegally after being deported.
The Obama administration falsely claims to be deporting record numbers of illegal aliens. To create a false impression the Obama administration, for the first time, includes the number of people stopped at the border in the count of those "deported".
Politicians claim illegal aliens "live in the shadows" and play on our compassion for others by suppressing information about how illegal aliens victimize millions of Americans, take jobs, suppress wages, increase taxes, create health hazards, over-burden our schools and hospitals, etc.
The idea that illegal aliens "live in the shadows" is simply a lie created by politicians to protect the wealth and power they derive from illegal immigration.
