As the Biden administration dismantles the border wall President Trump was erecting along our southern border, allowing unparalleled numbers of illegal aliens to enter the United States, Arizona Republican Congressman Paul Gosar, D.D.S. (CD-4) is doing more than shaking his head in disbelief. Be sure to read the explanatory statement he has issued after introducing legislation providing a 10-year moratorium on all immigration into the United States. Gosar’s bill is H.R.4643.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) provides the latest number of what it euphemistically refers to as ‘Criminal Noncitizen Statistics’ for Fiscal Year 2021. In addition to the crime of illegally invading our country, these are people who have a history of criminal convictions — often multiple convictions — ranging from homicides, drug trafficking, sexual offenses, deadly drunk-and-wrong-way drivers and numerous categories in-between. Unaccompanied minors are often transported by depraved pedophiles who continue their obscene criminality once here.
During May and June of this year alone, nearly a half million illegal aliens were encountered by CBP. These numbers peaked during the COVID-19 pandemic, yet the illegals are neither detained nor checked for the virus as they are transported across the United States for resettlement. The statistics for FY 2021, are mind-boggling with 1,277,722 illegal entries up to June.
Arizona is fortunate to have a resolute patriot such as Congressman Paul Gosar addressing the harsh realities to which too many others turn a blind eye.
