As an ever growing caravan of illegal immigrants continues its slow but sure path to the United States border, President Donald Trump made some strong statements about immigration and crime.
“For those who want and advocate for illegal immigration, just take a good look at what has happened to Europe over the last 5 years. A total mess! They only wish they had that decision to make over again,” the president tweeted.
He is referring to the increased amount of crime in European nations; particularly crimes against native-born citizens by freshly arrived immigrants. Crimes against women in particular have been on the rise in Germany, the UK and Scandinavian countries as new arrivals not only refuse to assimilate, but insist that citizens of their host nation bow to their culture and rules.
Almost two million refugees have landed in Europe since 2014, and while they were willingly accepted, crime rates in many of the host countries continue to climb. This open borders policy has lead to danger and chaos for the continent’s population in many cases. Some countries are tightening border policies now in an attempt to protect citizens from this new brand of immigrant and the resulting crime that the rapid influx has caused.
The nations in Europe have not equally shard the burden of housing and caring for these new arrivals – countries like Germany have taken in huge numbers of refugees and are also seeing the greatest increases in crime.
Preventing the United States from making this same error was at the heart of Trump’s statements today:
“We are a great Sovereign Nation,” Trump shared on Twitter: “We have Strong Borders and will never accept people coming into our Country illegally!”
The slow but steadily moving caravan of potential illegal immigrants is winding its way towards the US border; perfectly timed with the mid-term elections this month. Trump has repeatedly spoken out about the importance of a strong border policy, and signals continued focus on this issue as the election nears.
While the recent influx of refugees in Europe has slowed a bit (primarily in response to crime and other factors), the resulting problems remain. The nations impacted by mass immigration are forever changed; Trump’s call for care and caution could prevent the US from experiencing the increase in crime and other crises that mass immigration without restraint caused in Europe.
Voters have a chance to weigh in next month as the mid-term elections begin; giving citizens a chance to weigh in about the pending crisis and providing a clear picture of how many Americans agree with President Trump.
