The author of this report collected voluminous information from a wide variety of sources over a significant period of time as the subject interested me.  That information was condensed into this report.  However, in the process some of the references to the original sources were lost and therefore may be omitted.  In that case I apologize and suggest that others wishing to use any unreferenced text first confirm and credit as needed.  Should you know of any un-cited work that needs to be acknowledged, please contact the author. 

As this paper is prepared as a new media internet publication with numerous embedded references, I did not follow standard convention in referencing all authors and sources, as the reader may simply click over to the original source.  Unfortunately, unlike old media paper sources, some of the links will eventually go dead and thus the author or source will now be inadvertently omitted.  Should you be aware of any broken links where credit should be given, please contact me. 

You will also note that in many instance the salient information from the reference or link has been extracted and placed verbatim in this report.  This saves the reader a lot of clicking and protects the information from disappearing.  In some cases the information is critical to understand the problem but too extensive to completely include.  In those instances I add a “must read” notification.

America is unique from most other countries in that she was founded by immigrants from numerous other countries and has a diverse ethnic makeup.  The immigrants to America had a vision, work ethic, values, fortitude, imagination, and pioneering spirit which enabled her to become the greatest nation on earth.  Most of the immigrants came here by choice and all eventually integrated into AMERICAN society to become a homogenous people.  While it took longer for some than others, they and their descendents ultimately became “One nation, under God, with liberty and justice for all.”  Many, but not all, modern immigrants to the United States are not much different.

However, unlike the distant past, immigration now consists of two components: legal and illegal.  This report will not even attempt to cover the many contributions that legal immigrants are currently making to this country.  This paper will, however, explore various aspects and direct consequences of illegal immigration that many people are unaware of and most people do not know the full extent of.  This is The Dark Side of Illegal Immigration.  

In this paper, I will explore some of the collateral damage of the dark side and attempt to frame the issues in ways of direct applicability to the average American.  Throughout the paper I will ask whether the collateral damage of illegal immigration is worth it.  Assuming that most Americans will say “no,” I will then provide specific solutions on what to do about it.

It is an undisputable fact that the vast majority of illegal aliens, the proper term, are Hispanic/Latino.  However, this is more a result of geographic factors and poor economic conditions in the countries to our south than anything else.  If the socio-economic conditions of Canada and Mexico were reversed, the illegal immigration issue would center on our northern border rather than our southern border.  

All ethnic groups and nations have certain common characteristics and tendencies.  For example, Americans in general have a nationalistic “we’re #1” attitude.  This is often construed as an “ugly American” perception by people in many parts of the world.  However, we are also one of the most benevolent and forgiving nations as well as one of the most giving people, on a personal basis.  

In discussing the issue of illegal aliens, some of the social and cultural characteristics of the ethnicity or nationality of the aliens need to be highlighted, if they are a contributing factor and it is relevant to the discussion.  Acknowledging such characteristics is not prejudiced, racist, or xenophobic and it does not make the discussion bigoted.  In fact, ignoring such relevancy simply because of ethnicity could be construed as racist.

In any case, the author of this report wants to make it perfectly clear:  very few Americans are against a reasonable amount of legal immigration, regardless of race, nationality or ethnicity, but most Americans are against any amount of illegal immigration, regardless of race, nationality or ethnicity.

It is further to be noted that the illegal aliens are not just a “Mexican” or “Hispanic” problem.  It is only that most illegal aliens are currently from Mexico and the vast majority of illegal aliens are Hispanic.  Maybe with the exception of the Swedish Bikini Team, the majority of Americans would be against any people, regardless of race, nationality or ethnicity, being illegal aliens in the USA.

That said, we all know that all illegal aliens are simply hard working contributors to American society and are only doing the jobs Americans won’t do.  

Or do we?  

Let us now look at The Dark Side of Illegal Immigration and its collateral damage.


In Biting the Hand That Feeds You, Congressman Steve King of Iowa noted:

What would the May 1, 2006, illegal immigration boycott look like without illegal immigration? 

·   The lives of 12 U.S. citizens would be saved who otherwise would die a violent death at the hands of murderous illegal aliens each day. 

·   Another 13 Americans would survive who are otherwise killed each day by uninsured drunk driving illegals. 

·   There would be no one to smuggle across our southern border the heroin, marijuana, cocaine, and methamphetamines, which plague the United States, reducing the U.S. supply of methamphetamines that day, by 80%.

·   Our hospital emergency rooms would not be flooded with everything from gunshot wounds, to anchor babies, to imported diseases, to hangnails, giving American citizens the day off from standing in line behind illegals. 

·   Eight American children would not suffer the horror as victims of sex crimes.

I’ll bet you did not see Congressman King’s comments on the evening news.  

(Note: see Day Without Illegal Immigration for even more information on the illegal alien boycott.)

Are Congressman King’s comments baseless rhetoric, hateful speech, or actual facts?  The MSM (mainstream media) and proponents of illegal aliens consistently bombard us with reports of an individual illegal alien that has done what most legal immigrants do: work hard and succeed.  However, what they rarely tell us about are any of the negative aspects of illegal immigration.  This report will detail some of the dark, negative aspects of the impact of illegal aliens that you might not be aware of. 

Let’s start with a broad summary on how illegal immigration is or can affect you personally.  Here are just some of the negative side affects of illegal immigration:

·   easy conduit for terrorists entering the USA

·   massive escalation in crime

·   surge in foreign national prisoners to support for years

·   increases Balkanization of US

·   increases multiculturalism/segregation/divisiveness instead of the American melting pot

·   increases desire for Aztlan (reclaiming SW states for Mexico)

·   increasing number of traffic accidents

·   main contributor to surging US population

·   dramatic impact on society and infrastructure, including education

·   destruction of fragile ecosystems in American SW

·   main cause of emergency rooms and hospitals closing as well as service cut backs

·   introduction of third world diseases

·   increased welfare costs

·   massive costs to society – over and above contributions

Let's now examine some of The Dark Side of Illegal Immigration in greater detail
