The Economic Impact of Illegal Immigration

Another one of the big problems with this wave of illegal immigrations in our open borders, that President Biden and Senator Baldwin have supported, is the economic cost to Americans. If you look at what's happening to the budgets of many cities and municipalities, they've gone upside down almost immediately ...

Crime & Terrorism

Our open border policy has also created enormous risk for our country. First in regards to crime, we've seen a spike in crime by illegal immigrants.
