Due to the increase in the number of illegal immigrants seeking asylum in Europe, we are seeing an increase in the number of asylum seekers here in the United States. They are coming here because it pays more than having an “anchor baby” and they get legal status. It is a scam, pure and simple, and it is costing the American taxpayer billions.

Most of these people are single women. They bring two or three children each. They are uneducated, unskilled and do not speak English. What contributions will they make to this country? Some are the products of families that raise gang members and abusive husbands. They get asylum here because their “husbands” abused them, though I bet when the air has cleared they then sponsor dear hubby to come here.

I am tired of hearing stories of how schools bow to those illegals offended by our flag or the anthem. No one asked them to come. No one asked them to enter our schools for an education on the backs of people who pay property taxes; no one asked them to get free health care while we struggle to pay our insurance premiums. In some places they get free college tuition while our kids struggle to pay back loans.

We need a wall on our southern border, and we need to make guidelines strict so that single women cannot come here with their children and simply expect us to support them. And a child who was 16 years old when he or she arrived here does not need DACA.

As Judge Judy says, if it does not make sense it is not true. We are being lied to about this mess. We need the wall.
