Defending our Public Safety & National Security

 

Apologists for illegal immigration try to paint it as a victimless crime, but the fact is that illegal immigration causes substantial harm to the safety of American citizens and legal immigrants, particularly those in the most vulnerable sectors of our population — the poor, minorities, and children. Even the average illegal alien, who some claim is “otherwise law-abiding,” violates numerous other laws. This may include violating laws prohibiting identity theft and forgery, committing Social Security fraud, and driving without a license or insurance, often creating real victims.

Moreover, the rise in sanctuary cities throughout the U.S. has led to a proliferation of state and local laws and policies designed to protect and harbor dangerous criminal aliens at the expense of law-abiding Americans. Undoubtedly, every offense a criminal alien commits in the U.S. could have been prevented if that alien had been identified, apprehended, and removed before he or she victimized anyone. Instead, the very public officials who should be reporting them to federal authorities are shielding them.

 

At the same time, Americans are facing a new threat to their physical safety from international terrorism. Al Qaeda, which was responsible for the deaths of nearly 3,000 Americans on September 11, 2001, and ISIS, whose goal is to control and expand territory to create a radical Islamic caliphate, remain avowedly committed to carrying out violence against Americans at home and abroad. Many of the individuals convicted or tied to recent terrorist plots orchestrated in the U.S. were either illegal aliens, or otherwise scammed the legal immigration system to gain entry to the country.

 

The responsibility of governments to their citizens includes the administration of justice to prevent crime, terrorist attacks, and to punish lawbreakers. That's where IRLI comes in! IRLI has been a national leader in seeking to ensure that federal immigration laws designed to protect Americans are enforced and state and local laws intended to protect public safety are defended.
