For Your Family’s Sake – “Take Our Border Back” Series Introduction

This is a CALL to ACTION for all concerned American citizens to keep American soil safe for our families. The US is experiencing a humanitarian crisis at the southern border that is festering to change the course of America’s history while we sleep.

Are satisfied with how the current government administration is dealing with the safety of our American borders and the safety of our Sanctuary Cities? Are you concerned about the public funds drying up for the most vulnerable Americans just before you are called to active duty to defend our country on our soil?

This is a “Call to Action” NOT a “call to arms”. The idea of “Take Our Border Back” is to raise awareness of border problems.


First Amendment -Religion…
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech…The fliefor Take Our Border Back found its place lower down on this blog post.


“Take Back Our Border” flier for a Peaceful Assembly is further down on the page than I first intended. I have lots of background on the southern border and the mass migration to the US and countries in Europe.

This No Non-cents Nanna blog post goal is to summarize why people are flooding our borders and possible reasons the US federal government is failing to protect Americans and the people coming to America.

  1. will briefly review our history and rights under the Constitution of the United States.
  2.  will summarize illegal crossings at the southern border of the United States and Mexico.
  3. will share about a Peaceful Assembly going on right now involving 1,000s of Truckers in a Convoy headed to the Southern border to support Texas to protect our citizens from invasion.
  4. will quote facts and definitions to make this easier for the reader.
  5. will inspire you to ask more questions and take action’ in peaceful ways.

Note: as I work on more pages in this series I will be coming back to these pages to edit and connect one page to another. I feel the urgency to publish this information tonight. Please share this content in the most appropriate way you can think of. Due to spammers, I kindly ask that you join No Non-cents Nanna so you can comment and be part of the discussion.

Will this mass immigration in North America and Europe create more poverty and starvation, civil war, a third world war; Armegaedon, or what? I suppose we will not know the answer until the real motivations for crossing illegally into the US and the UK become crystal clear.

Please help share to raise awareness of the Border Crisis in the US and European countries.

Upcoming posts with more informative quotes from credible resources, and summaries will help you to connect the dots that the world as we know it is about to change. This post is only an introduction to get you and me thinking about what are we going to need to do in light of what feels like an invasion on our home soil.


Millions of people dream of a better life in America.

Undocumented aliens risk their lives to make what can be a perilous journey to cross the Mexican border into the United States. These people walk through deserts, jungles, and mountains. Along the way robbers, banditos, are waiting to take advantage of them. These ruthless bandits have no empathy for human beings. They only care about the money they will make to “help” men, women, and children get to the border.

Historically on average 200 to 300 South Americans die annually trying to cross the Rio Grande River. And who knows how many lives are lost due to this in a blazing hot 118-degree desert before they encounter the Bandito “toll bridges”.

This is a heartbreaking scenario, isn’t it…but wait something has changed at the border…the American dream in the “new normal” is now the beginning of a nightmare like nothing the United States of America has ever seen…the US/ Mexico border is in crisis…and I am not writing about the mass migrates who try to enter the US. Most are illegal migrants…

(Keep reading – the historical numbers have changed, dramatically.)

The countries of origin will shock you. The agenda, once you realize what it is, will terrify you. And the facts are no conspiracy theory. (See the countries below.)


Facts about Border Patrol

US Customs and Border Patrol agents employ 60,000 staff members to man the 65 border stations across 1,954 miles.

In 2022 the budget for border protection was a whopping $14,643 BILLION (Infographics on YouTube collected that fact for us. View the video The Truth About The Illegal Immigration CRISIS” on YouTube published January 4, 2024.)

Then the White House administration recognized an increased need. So they added $1.018 Billion. That was not enough with a 26% increase in expenses so another $ 6 billion was tacked onto the budget to hire more border patrol expenses in 2023. (I am writing this in January 2024.)

(At least Americans were getting back to work. I’ll hazard a guess that the Cyotes were raking in more… keep reading…)

Another 2.5 Billion was added to put more walls across the Mexican and US border in metric is 3,145 km. 

Now the 2024 budget to protect our southern border is…wait for it…and we complain about the increased price of milk…

…$25 billion. That includes some additional fencing…remember that I am writing this in January 2024…


Spoiler alert: Texas is putting up Razor Wire and the Federal government, Biden administration, “Hell no! Were are sending down Federal Agents to cut the wire so we can get to the other side.” Now, Texas and the 25 states disagree with the federal government. Read below about the Truckers Convoy peaceful assembly in late January 2024.


All of these millions and billions of dollars the US is spending, are a bit late, in adding up and I can’t track them, According to Infographics research the US intends to spend another $800 million for increased customs enforcement of the CBP over last year.

Texas’ Governor Abbot knows these Federal funds are not enough. It has been obvious the construction of border barriers after the fact of invasion of Illegal migrants through crossings other than the legal entry ports is too late. So Texas is using state funds to roll out razor wire at the cost of $1.5 billion to try to stop nearly millions. 2.3 million crossing at the southern border. 

Part of the urgency is that we do not have a perfect body count. Many slip in under the wire. Others are undesirables on government watch lists who get deported – but they keep coming back.

While I am thinking of it, before you feel sorry for all of these people claiming asylum, I will mention that the CBP does not know how many families are real families. Some babies and children as used by nonparents to try to qualify for some kind of greater empathy. I will discuss this in upcoming No Non-cents Nanna blog posts. Only God knows who is legitimately seeking asylum and who is lying their pants off to infiltrate as terrorists. (Read about NTA for asylum seekers a few inches of paragraphs below.)

Then there are children vulnerable and alone with phone numbers on hand-written notes, allegedly stating that a relative is to be contacted to take them in. That may be true for some. However, many of these children are being trafficked to work in jobs, basically as slave labor in factories, their organs, or their bodies – in the US, under our noses.

We have a humanitarian crisis in America. Very soon we will not recognize The Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.

(Don’t forget that our neighbors to the north, Canada have border crossing as well.)

(All the while President of Urkrain Vladimir Zelensky was flying over to the American legislature in our airplanes begging for funds – which were given to him to “win the war against Russia”. I wonder if that was a distraction from what was going on at the US border to protect our own country. It is my opinion that while Americans complained about COVID mask mandates “we” were asleep assuming we were safe and secure with Trump’s Wall which was never completed.)

I apologize for the rabbit trail…back to the topic of facts about the US southern border…


NTA for Asylum Seekers

See the definition of “asylum” is below *1NNcN

An NTA is given to alleged asylum seekers to appear in court on a certain date to request asylum. Cutting to the quick there is a a problem the government calls the “got-away’…

How many alleged “asylum seekers” will make it to court in 4 to 5 years as they promised when there are not enough immigrant judges on the bench to grant asylum if warranted? Those who were never serious, know that they have plenty of time to get away with cries that they came here to commit.

Let’s face facts, there is plenty of room to “get by with murder” if they so desire. Undocumented aliens and troublemakers are flooding the UK, France, and other European nations. Many of those cultural identities will be history. Our compassion and laws have opened our arms to invasion. How does the border patrol separate the good apples from the bad apples?


Forbes posts a shocking video of John Kendey from Lousiana, on their YouTube channel. (Copy and paste the above title into the search bar on YouTube to watch/ listen to.) I will quote several facts presented on January 23, 2024, “On the Senate floor, Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) issued an emphatic warning about the state of the border and the entry of terrorists into the U.S.”

WARNING! These facts are not suitable for young children to face head-on-parents must continue to provide a safe and secure environment with routines and structure.



What are the possible consequences of even one terrorist illegally crossing our American borders?”

There are only so many resources to go around to share with everyone. If we take the time to think carefully, many midwestern states have suffered drought years. Banks are closing. Retail stores and closing. Theft is at an alarming high. (I’ll write about that very soon.)


Is there another Great Depression coming? That discussion is for another blog in this series. I’ll share my research on the recent drought in the midwestern US. I’ll pull in glimpses from history so that we may compare the patterns from the past and today. How will the dramatic increase in mouths to feed with the mass migration affect the food supply?

Whether we like it or not, the world is already in World War III – but that has not been officially declared. Stay calm and level-headed. There are legal steps to declaring war. Some people are declaring this is the end of the world. But, those clickbait prophesies do not seem to be doing much but manipulating with fear. Fear-mongering historically has been profitable for those at the top of the pyramid/Ponzi schemes.

Think about it. Be careful not to react impulsively. Know the facts.

I will discuss this in a future blog post in this series for your family’s sake relating to the southern border crisis. This is not a peaceful passing but a dangerous and expensive journey that is profiting the human smugglers often called “coyotes” specific to the southern border of the US, just north of Mexico.

Will more civil wars break out when cultures clash between established ethnic countries and conflicting cultures from other parts of the world? How many political and religious mores can coexist peacefully? 

During the Roman Empire, when Rome conquered new territory, they allowed to some degree, for the people to hang on to their religions. Then they encouraged the origin’s beliefs to be absorbed with Roman culture and religion. That political strategy was pretty smart if you were the conquerors. But will that work in sanctuary cities with people who entered this country illegally?

Ideally, people are people with the same basic essential needs. But, traditions, expectations, and priorities may be as different as night and day. The upcoming posts will explore a few of the most predominant issues. some of which as as simple as the clothes we wear can start riots and even bloody battles as they have in history.

However, warm and fuzzy ideals don’t rule the world. People with personality disorders dominate the vulnerable. I will discuss patterns of behavior and the kind of personalities in history that have successfully ruled their corners of the world in history. Links to resources might lead you to chase rabbits in and out of holes if you click on a few.

At this time it looks like the US is rewarding people to enter our country illegally, not through border crossings, and then we pay them to be here without proper vetting.

Is it possible to have a war start within your own country by people we allowed to just walk in to cash-in on our generosity?

There is NO declaration of war at this time.

How do countries get themselves officially into a war? OOPS! That seems like a misplaced question…until… you think about the Trojan Horse.

You’d think by now, human beings would have figured out how to play well with others – but have we learned anything other than being co-dependent(Hold that thought.)

Regardless of what is going on in perpetually war-torn countries and rumors of wars, individuals still must take care of today’s essential needs in healthy and balanced ways. That includes planning for the worst and hoping for the best rain or shine.

At this time, we have a border problem that most are not paying attention to until their sanctuary city is overflowing with migrants without a plan other than to come to America. There must be an assumption that America will solve all its problems with the “Everything is free in America.”

(Do you still have that thought in your head about not learning how to start a war in your country? Have you refreshed your history lessen on the Trojan Horse?)

Could that be part of the reason families are fleeing their homelands to the US or the UK in Europe? Will good people be bringing with them the political regimes that they for whatever reason did not want to stay home to make a change?

Will all of these newcomers who don’t speak English support our Republic or tear it down?

When we show compassion, at what point will we want to withdraw our painfully bitten hand that fed an unvetted alien? Will these immigrants hold open our front door and back doors to let their nefarious leader into our world thus attacking from within?

My son talked on the phone to a friend who lives close to Manhattan and Queens New York. A male relative works for a security agency who is working at a migrant shelter. He says there is always someone who is “causing trouble and not behaving”. (Whatever that means.)

I know I don’t have to tell you that one terrorist can spoil your whole day. And then it takes decades to recover if you ever do.


To sum and pull together these what seem like random thoughts I’m going to tease you with a spoiler alert to a future related post.

There is a disproportionate amount of males aged 17-45 years old entering the US and European countries who are requesting asylum claiming Conscientious Objectors. They don’t want to be forced to fight in their country’s military, so they claim.

How does that sit with you? (Free-loaders? Trojan Horse occupants? Terrorists? Grifters? Products of the environment they came from? Who knows if they are legit? They are unvetted.)


How do you think some immigrants could be not who they say they are? Do you think Americ could be attacked from withinside the borders?

If you review the story about Troy being gifted a beautiful wooden horse with an army hidden inside, do you think this is possible in the US sanctuary cities?

Please do not panic!

Please think this through carefully and then figure out how you will take quiet measures to protect your family with essentials in case you need to hunker down or the stores are closed. Your plan can be as simple as planning ahead for a big snow storm.

Can terrorists living without proper documents now hiding in the US declare from inside the US? Or does an act of Congress have to write up papers for the president to sign a Declaration of War?)

Think about it. It’s a mess.


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
United States President Franklin D. Roosevelt signs the declaration of war against Japan on December 8, 1941

declaration of war is a formal declaration issued by a national government indicating that a state of war exists between that nation and another. A document by the Federation of American Scientists gives an extensive listing and summary of statutes which are automatically engaged upon the United States declaring war.[1]

For the United States, Article One, Section Eight of the Constitution says “Congress shall have power to … declare War.” However, that passage provides no specific format for what form legislation must have in order to be considered a “declaration of war” nor does the Constitution itself use this term.


Who declares war? Keep in mind that we have had a War on Drugs since Barbra Bush was first lady. Yet, we are in a losing battle with all the Fentenal smuggled in across the border.

This series will include a discussion on the consequences of illegal substances being smuggled in through persons pretending to claim asylum from their home country. Getting hooked on non-inspected and approved substances wrecks lives; encourages retail theft to pay for additions; closes down essential businesses, loss of jobs for employees from those businesses; leads to food deserts; and other fatal or disabling crimes.

Over the past 3 or 4 years I have made comments under YouTube videos about the rise in sho; lifting at WalMarts and Walgreens to name a few retail stores in our communities. Sadly, I have been rebuked by people claiming that big business owes the people because they are making big profits – what is my problem with that?

Now comments on YouTube are crying that their local stores are closing or the grocery store has empty shelves. 

Youtuber TommyBites does a wonderful job keeping up with store closings and advising us to stock up to be prepared. Check out her videos.

Other YouTubers have warned that unless we Americans get our act together Martial Law will be declared. Do you think that is possible?

I think that with southern border states sending busloads of immigrants to sanctuary cities such as New York City and Chicago, things will get out of hand. IMO. Think about the possibility. this is an urgent reality – no longer just a crazy conspiracy theory. Again, I’m planning on including this subject in a future No Non-cents Nanna blog post.

You may be feeling hopelessly overwhelmed if you stumbled on this page. You may wonder what can you do NOW if my urgent warnings could happen.

Well, I can’t begin to cover it all. I’m a researcher and a Resource Queen. So before you continue on to my sections on who can declare war I’ll refer you to more of my favorite YouTubers just in case you have not connected, yet.

Heads up: Each post will be edited and tweaked as needed. There is a lot of information to cover. Remember that knowledge is power and wise persons seek out a variety of sources to get the most accurate facts.






Are we in World War III? Will American soil be attacked forcing the declaration of war?


Does Congress have the power to declare war?

  • According to the Constitution ( Article I, Section 8 ), Congress has the exclusive power to declare war. The last time America declared war was during World War II. The Korean War, the War in Vietnam, and the extended campaigns in Afghanistan and Iraq were never stamped with congressional declarations of war. 1. War of 1812

How Many Times Has the US Officially Declared War? | HISTORY

In this series, For Your Family’s Sake – “Take Our BorderBack” I will collect and share more quotes and links to help you get good resources that you can think about and then use.

There are a wide variety of experts who focus on essential topics. But, when beginning to get into the emergency preparedness mode without going nuts, unless you know what words to search for it can be overwhelming.

I will be breaking down the same concepts I have questioned in this introductory blog post.


My intention is not to fear-monger.

When I was young I wanted to save the world with hugs and peanut butter and jelly. Isn’t life so simple when you are 13? Does that idealism resonate with you, too?

I was a healthcare provider and early childhood educator. I had empathy. Now that I’m turning 73 this year, I have more reality under my belt.

I’m still a humanitarian at heart. But, I honestly have no idea where all of these people are going to live in a safe environment – neither does the US government.

If we keep loving arms open to unvetted strangers how will we the people keep our citizens safe and warm when we know that among the innocent yearning to be free that there are hard-core criminals ready to rape, rob and steal every bit of life out of the people who have been good citizens?

I want parents, grandparents, teachers, medical professionals, first responders, and community supporters to think about how we will help our children grow up feeling safe and secure no matter what may happen. It is time to Call to Action a safety plan for our own before we are drained dry.

Do you think you can muster the confidence to Keep Calm and Carry On?

This writer, No Non-cents Nanna has always been concerned about safety and security within our family dynamics. I’ve always encouraged others to be like the Boy Scout motto, “Be prepared”.

I’ve meant what I preached on the individual family scale about family safety and nurturing our children.

But, now, I feel the need to shout this warning from the rafters…

“America is rotting from within due to our open borders. We must take measures to protect our most vulnerable by educating ourselves with facts – who is crossing the borders of the US and for what agenda?

(I’m not forgetting Europe is flooded with illegals as well. It is not just people looking for a new home to start over. There is increased crime. Refusal to respect the laws of the land; City government having to “Robe Peter’s Fund to pay for Paul’s emergency shelter and food. That will be the subject of an upcoming blog in this series on Raising Awareness of the Border Crisis.


I don’t have the all answers. Like you, I have questions.

Frankly, there are many things that I have no clue about. But, with a little help most of us can find a suitable expert to for specific needs.

I want to help you with researching so you can be informed before you are faced with tough choices that are dramatically increasing with an uncontrolled number of human beings crossing borders with no place to settle down.


Think of No Non-cents Nanna’s series, For Your Family’s Sake – “Take Our BorderBack”, as a 211 blog or an index.

  •  I am a cracker-jack researcher. I get excited about the details I find. I tend to overdo my findings on my blogs.
  • As I learn more about what is going on with a flood of people in need of food and shelter within the US borders, I will post at least twice a week, maybe more, including short quotes and links to help you get started on what you may need to do when 1,000’s of strangers are dumped off into your unprepared city. [See below for a summary.]
  •  Once you have enough facts to get you started on making your own wise decisions for your family.
  • Think of preparing like practicing the annoying Fire Drills in Grade School or even the old Duck and Cover


Not Meant to Be Politically Biased or to Discriminate Against Fellow Human Beings

  • I was taught that charity begins at home. 
  • I was taught to give the shirt off my back to a needy stranger. Later when reality hit I learned that my empathy left me cold a naked. (Now think of this co-dependent charity policy of the US funding other bodies of land for the elites’ selfish needs without a thought for the needs of America’s most vulnerable: wounded warriors/military veterans; disabled, elderly, children, mentally ill, victims of crimes; abused, neglected, fighting serious health issues; the healthy person who does not know that they will be in an accident or sever weather event tomorrow…
  • America could very well suffer the greatest humanitarian crisis in our history within weeks.
  • Will closing our eyes keep our family safe?
  • How will you plan for your children’s health and well-being in trying times?
  • Where is the best place for your aging loved ones?
  • History of how families survived homeland invasion, civil war, world war… what savvy skills might you need?

[Coming up in my For Your Family’s Sake – “Take Our BorderBack” series I will address the consequences to our American finances and affordable housing, food insecurity, preparing your children for war…]


Raising Awareness of Border Crisis

  • I feel I must do something to prepare for the near future of America. And how do you feel?
  • I am not satisfied with how the current government administration is dealing with the safety of our American borders and the safety of our Sanctuary Cities. Human beings of all ages are being bused or flown to and then dropped off. [I will post some related links below.]


Who are the groups who are raising awareness of the border crisis?

When my son pointed out Oreo Express on YouTube and the Trucker’s Convoy, I got chills. The two of us have been watching the border situation unfold for years. Now, these have surpassed a critical stage…[See quotes and links below before the next post on this series on the Border Crisis is published.]

I asked my son, The Edge of Eternity Networks who manages this No Non-cents Nanna blog site, “What can we do? We are home-bound adults.” So, we decided to combine the skills we still have to get the word out. (Please social share this post and the upcoming posts in this series For Your Family’s Sake – “Take Our BorderBack”. This is only part 1.


At this time I support the Take Our Border Back movement. Click HERE to go directly to their website. You can ask questions via chat, and keep up-to-date on the Truck Convey; join the social media updates.

  • You may even decide to support the movement in the US by donating funds for the cost of truckers to drive to the southern border of Texas.
  • You may decide to share videos or journal story updates.
  • You may decide to talk to your best friends or neighbors about the truck convoy.
  • You may form a veterans group to meet up at the Texas/ Mexico border to do something to raise awareness that our country is being invaded by nefarious people sneaking in with children and true asylum seekers.
  • You might be better informed about the mass migration of illegal aliens sneaking in with good people and their families who truly seek a better life and safe environment to raise their children.
  • It is not just the US being flooded with illegal aliens, but also in European countries.
  • You may decide that this is hyperbolic BS.


The choice is yours to make. The goal of this No Non-cents Nanna post is to raise awareness by collecting the FACTS about this humanitarian issue that is about to bankrupt US funds: rob many Americans of the feeling of being safe and secure, and rot the once haven of American shores while we are sleeping.

What are patriots going to do?

Since the Feds have gravely failed to protect our borders if I pointed out that the US should have shut the barn door before the horse got out” that would be a gross understatement. We did not build a well to keep out an Invasion.

Learn more about a Peaceful Assembly that all Americans are guaranteed under our constitution.

We do not want riots nor do we a civil war over protecting our country.

Above I tried my best to summarize some basic facts. I hope you shave this post after you give careful thought to what I see is about to be life-changing. We are on the cusp of losing the right to the pursuit of happiness and other rights to be free in America.

It is urgent that you and I understand that those illegally crossing our borders are not doing so because they want to be American. They want to destroy this country rather than absorb our way of life.


Happening in late January 2024!

How much do you remember about the birth of the United States of America?

Did you know that before the Declaration of Independence when the US was ruled by the English King, it was NOT legal to assemble or have town meetings?

In response to the Boston Tea Party, the English Parliament passed a set of laws as punishment. In England they were known as the Coercive Acts of 1774; American colonists called them the Intolerable Acts.

King George’s Royal Governor of Massachusetts, General Thomas Gage had been given authority to declare town meetings illegal, did so and enforced such orders with troops.2

With the Intolerable Acts the British Parliament assumed and exercised the authority to declare meetings of people illegal. General Gage used that authority to declare the Massachusetts Assembly illegal. The British would tolerate no assembly of Americans.


On October 14, 1774 The Declaration and Resolves of the First Continental Congress declared on October 14, 1774:

The inhabitants of the English colonies in North-America, by the immutable laws of nature… have the following rights: They have a right peaceably to assemble,… and that all prosecutions, prohibitory proclamations, and commitments for the same are illegal” 3


The original American Patriots earned our country’s freedom from colonization. Why are the people who are fleeing their countries and choosing to not enter by legal ports of entry not staying and working towards having a good government in their country? Will they help to maintain America’s constitution?

How important to Americans is the First Amendment?

A certain Prince from across the Pond who now lives in the US said this about our Constitution of these United States and the first four Amendments, “It’s BONKERS! I’ve been planning to write about that statement and his desire for social media to be censored…that post is still unwritten. Meanwhile, I encourage you to start researching that subject. Why not check out The Royal Grift on YouTube? or Andrew Gold on YouTube?

Please check out this article below. I quoted a small portion with a list to remind you of examples of how we Americans have exercised our unalienable right to assemble per the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.

First Amendment to US Constitution: Right to Peaceable Assembly March 29, 2013 by 

Right to Assembly Since Cruikshank

Freedom of assembly has come to protect gatherings of individuals organized for diverse purposes.

The Ku Klux Klan, civil rights advocates anti-war protestors and striking union workers, communists and the American Nazi party have been able to gather publicly in protest or in support of their causes. The civil rights movement gained added impetus with the 1963 March on Washington and Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech.

Women’s suffragists filled city streets to advance their cause. In recent times, meetings and rallies of Tea Party activists have brought public attention to concerns about federal government expansion. Freedom of Assembly has shaped and continues to shape America.



Support the Convoy


I envisioned the Commies coming to town in jeeps to take our bibles in 1957.
Now in 2024 is the US being invaded? Has WWIII started but undeclared? This particular photo was taken in my hometown in 2003 as the local guard was taking off for deployment to Iraq.

Are the latest immigrants disappointed with the sacred word on the plaque of the Statue of Liberty?

I’d like to point out the stark contrast between the “tired and poor huddled mass hearing to be free” with terrorists illegally crossing through our “golden door”.

Warning: beware of wolves in sheep’s clothing who will try to falsely tell you that this poem is a constitutional promise to all who want to enter our borders.

  • The quote below is not a part of the legal documents of the USA.
  • This poem is NOT a part of our Constitution, Amendment, or law.
  • This poem is NOT a promise to anyone who fraudulently claims asylum and/or illegally crosses our borders.
  • The quote below is only a nicely worded poem, printed on a metal plaque attached to the Statue of Liberty after it was erected on the island of New York harbor.

Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”


It is not a rumor that some entities wish to tear down the symbol of open arms.

I randomly picked one article to quote from. Please read the entire article to avoid taking the quote out of context.

Freshman Democrat Rep. Max Frost: Republicans might as well take down the Statue of Liberty if they’re going to demand a secure border! 🤔

— RNC Research (@RNCResearch) January 17, 2024

The bill, which, according to Fox News is getting decent bipartisan support, “would restrict the asylum process for people crossing the border and require resumed construction on the border wall.”

In Frost’s own words “[don’t] welcome immigrants if you plan to reject them. If you keep pushing your bigoted H.R. 2 bill, then also pass this bill … It removes the Statue of Liberty, our largest symbol that tells people to come here.”

Do all lawful immigrants choose to become U.S. citizens?

Not all lawful permanent residents choose to pursue U.S. citizenship. …may apply after meeting certain requirements, including having lived in the U.S. for five years. In fiscal year 2019, about 800,000 immigrants applied for naturalization. The number of naturalization applications has climbed in recent years, though the annual totals remain below the 1.4 million applications filed in 2007.

More than 1 million immigrants arrive in the U.S. each year. In 2018, the top country of origin for new immigrants coming into the U.S. was China, with 149,000 people, followed by India (129,000), Mexico (120,000) and the Philippines (46,000)


Compare the above from 2020 to the below from 2021 – 2024


The number of unauthorized immigrants living in the U.S. in 2021 remained below its peak of 12.2 million in 2007. It was about the same size as in 2004 and lower than every year from 2005 to 2015.

The new estimates do not reflect changes that have occurred since apprehensions and expulsions of migrants along the U.S.-Mexico border started increasing in March 2021. Migrant encounters at the border have since reached historic highs.


Europe and the United States are major destinations for the world’s immigrants. In both places, debates about immigration policy have focused on what to do with unauthorized immigrants. These debates can center on national policies, as well as policies for Europe as a whole.

The size of Europe’s unauthorized immigrant population in 2017 was less than half the number in the U.S., according to an analysis of newly released Pew Research Center estimates for Europe and the Center’s existing U.S. estimates.

How can the US fund immigrants, fund wars in other countries and support the people who have paid into the system?

Do you recall “Aging Baby Boomers in the US.”
