FALLOUT: Trump Caused This Unexpected ECONOMIC BOOM from Illegals
The fallout from an effective president comes in ways Americans least expected.
When President Trump proposed his ideas on curbing illegals trespassing in America, we all anticipated a drop in illegals coming to America.
At last report, border crossings from Mexico were down over 40 percent. I’d say most of us anticipated some drop, however steep.
We even anticipated some illegals going home. That eventuality now occurs as well to varying degrees.
We further anticipated the reaction by anti-American hate groups and others sympathetic to the criminals who have invaded our country, thwarting our legal immigration system.
There was no surprise when all 50 Mexican consulates in the U.S. beefed up aid to those who fear deportation. In fact, the Mexican government used our taxpayers’ fund to provide $50 million in funding to help keep their criminals in America. They formed partnerships with non-profit groups and find lawyers to help with immigration.
Recently we chronicled a company that provides a smartphone app that provides assistance to illegals in the event of an ICE encounter. Ironically, the ACLU has produced instructions for illegals on “what to do if immigration agents (ICE) are at your door.” Yes, a group that supposedly protects the civil liberties of Americans puts the rights of illegals over those of Americans.
The true nature of Leftism: to help most the undeserving.
Nevertheless, there remains at least one thing I doubt most of us anticipated when President Trump cracked down on illegals. It has created an interesting economic boom: tattoo removal.
CBS Local in San Francisco reports,
An East Bay tattoo removal clinic says they’ve treated a record number of clients since the election.
Some in the Latino community worry ICE agents will use their tattoos as an excuse to stop them and check immigration status.
The number of customers has doubled. Typically, people go in to remove an ex-lover’s name or get rid of tattoos for job interviews.
But the fear of deportation is a new reason.
“A lot of people don’t want to be a moving target or even seen as a target,” says Nora Ruiz of the San Pablo Economic Development Corporation. “And for fear that they might be seen as a certain type of person or judged in anyway, people want to get their tattoos removed.”
There’s no evidence suggesting ICE agents are targeting people based on tattoos but people with gang ties or criminal backgrounds are at risk.
So MS-13 and other gang-related tattoos are no longer in vogue? Getting that Mexican flag removed from one’s bicep?
I chuckle when I remember all the protests, where Mexican nationals defiantly hit the streets. They waved their Mexican flag, and essentially dared ICE to do anything. Now we have illegals afraid to attend Cinco de Mayo festivals?
Where is all that Mexican machismo now?
America flies ONE flag, and the people who EARN the right to be here legally have nothing to worry about. And you can bet those LEGAL immigrants proudly fly Old Glory.
