And btw, us born citizens are commiting 2.5 times the crimes vs illegals.
And 90% of all drugs smuggled into the states is by us citizens.
And unless you are Native American you or your descends are immigrants too.
This is a misleading argument. First of all, all illegal immigrants in the US are criminals because every single one of them has committed the crime of entering the country without permission, or remaining here without permission. Also, illegal immigrants often do not report crime that occurs in their community by other illegal immigrants, because they're tying to stay off the government's radar. So, crime statistics in immigrant communities are inaccurate. Crime committed by illegal immigrants is a problem, because it's harder for law enforcement to find and arrest criminals who are flying under the radar. Also, some of the worst criminal gangs in the US, such as MS-13, have a lot of illegal immigrant members.
The drug smuggling across the southern border involves a combination of US citizens, citizens of various other countries, and illegal immigrants. The smugglers use immigrant surges across the borders to divert attention from their delivery routes. Also, the drug carters use human smuggling as another source of revenue and to recruit employees. If the southern border was more secure, such as building a tall, solid wall all the across its length, it would make it harder for the smugglers to get the drugs across.
The Native Americans are immigrants to the American continent. They either came across from Russia into Alaska or by some other means. The historic evidence is clear that humans did not organically originate in the Western hemisphere. So, everyone here is a descendent of immigrants. Anyway, that's not the point. When the US needed immigrants, they invited them in. The problem isn't immigration, per se, it's ILLEGAL immigration.
By the way, it used to be the Democrats who were stronger against illegal immigration. If you'll remember, leftist activist Cesar Chavez used to send vigilantes to the southern border in California in the 1970s and 80s to try to stop illegals from crossing. Also, leftist environmental organizations like the Sierra Club during that time period also condemned illegal immigration because of the negative effect they said it had on the environment. When the Democrats started kowtowing to the globalists during the Obama administration, they suddenly stopped trying as hard to close the southern border and leftist environmental organizations dropped their opposition to mass immigration. The global elitists pushing more immigration, illegal or otherwise, aren't necessarily left or right in political persuasion, they're just using polemical talking points to push policies that ultimately, only benefit them.
Illegal and mass immigration is devastating to the home countries of the immigrants. It creates a tremendous brain drain when their most motivated young men leave to go north. When the cream of their labor crop leaves, it prevents the populace in those countries from developing their home economies to their fullest extent, and from rooting out the corruption that exists in many of those countries. Mass illegal immigration from Latin America to the US is one of the worst things that can happen to Latin America.
