Events far away can have the effect of clarifying things close to home.

Beyond the shear brutality of murdering babies and burning innocent people alive is the shock attendant to the fact that the Hamas terror attack on Israel came as a sudden, brutal and nasty surprise. That, coupled with cold savagery, is what makes terrorism so effective.

The clarity that comes from watching the horror that is taking place in real time in Israel should inform our thinking as to what is taking place concurrently in real time on our southern border.

As numbers in conversations get larger, they become harder to comprehend. Such it is with the numbers surrounding our illegal immigration problem.

Easily comprehended or not, the numbers are staggering. According to U.S. Customs & Border Protection, 260,000 people illegally crossed our southern border in September – a record. To put that in perspective, September’s illegal immigration is roughly equal to adding a city the size of Waco to the U.S. population every month.

Customs & Border Protection has had 7.5 million illegal alien encounters since January 2021 when Joe Biden took office. That’s roughly equal to having a face-to-face, adversarial encounter with every single person living in or around Houston. And that number is at least an order of magnitude greater than it was during the Trump presidency.

Of those 7.5 million, nearly 30 percent of them – or about 2.1 million – were given notices to appear before a judge at a date that is years in the future and then turned loose into the country to go and do as they choose. History has shown that few of them will show up in court at the appointed time.

But here’s the scary number. CBP estimates that since Joe Biden took office, at least 1.7 million illegal immigrants – including 20,000 just this month – have evaded capture. CBP calls them “gotaways.” Because they got away, there is no way to know who they are, where they came from or what their reasons are for coming here. What isn’t disputed is that these gotaways aren’t just from Mexico and Central America. They’re from all over the world.

1.7 million people sneaking into the country isn’t immigration, it’s an invasion. And it’s an invasion force 13 times larger than the Allied military force that invaded at Normandy on D-Day in 1944. Against the backdrop of what’s happening in Israel, numbers on that scale strongly argue the case that the Biden administration has been instrumental in bringing onto U.S. soil the malign forces that could carry out the next 9/11-scale terrorist attack.

Someone in charge should act concerned. We should all look at the horrific images coming out of Israel and remember that it took only 19 terrorists to carry out the devastating attacks of 9/11.

For if just a tiny fraction of the millions of illegal immigrants who have participated in an invasion in-all-but-name wish to do us harm, we, too, could find ourselves on the receiving end of a sudden, brutal and nasty surprise.

    Thank you, Mr. Gleiser for another excellent article explaining how serious the problems with the Mexico/US Border is. Allowing 1 million people to come into our country would be crazy, but we are looking at 20 million illegals that have come across our southern border in the past 20 years and 7.5 million in the past 3 years.
    All of this plus the crazy US Debt is surely damning our country and I don’t understand why any US Citizen would consider these and the other nut casr ideas we are watching.

    Does the State of Texas have any laws on the books that would define this invasion by forceful entry as a criminal act that must be STOPPED by our State and Local Law Enforcement officials? Shouldn’t these officials be targeting as criminals, those that are funding and promoting this invasion? Isn’t any Texas law enforcement official that refuses to enforce these possible laws against this type of invasion be guilty of collaboration and therefore be subject to indictment as well? How can any Texas elected official EVER allow criminal activity that threatens harm to life and property to continue unabated EVEN IF the Federal government has REFUSED to enforce laws that prohibit this criminal activity being perpetrated on Texas citizens? Why has this invasion been allowed to continue and get worse since the evidence of lack of enforcement has been obvious for all to see since the Biden Administration has been in office?

    Have we Texans been conquered by an axis of evil globalists that have merged with the international trafficking Cartels with the last election of Communist sympathizers to the Executive branch of the US Government that is funding and promoting this invasion by illegal aliens without ANY effective enforcement of existing immigration laws? I don’t remember having surrendered our Texas sovereignty to this New World Order being led by the Marxist Democrat Party now in charge of the Senate and the Executive Branch of this Nation! Was the 10th amendment to the Constitution removed from our right to Statehood and sovereignty as a part of the Republic that forms the US collection of States as protected by the Constitution?

    Was the PLEDGE to “protect and defend” the Constitution of the United States of America declared obsolete as required by law when assuming office as an elected official? Has the Judicial Branch also been conquered by the Marxist Globalist Criminal organizations? Shouldn’t the Free Press have investigated and reported this loss of State sovereignty if it has been a legal change for which we must now obey? Could someone please explain why we must sit back and let our fellow citizens of Texas be tortured by this criminal activity that goes unpunished? Is anarchy been legalized in this country so that ONLY PERSONAL DEFENSE from criminal activity with our own weapons is to be our last resort to protect our life and property? I want an ANSWER from these spineless officials that hold office in this County, State, and Federal Government that took the PLEDGE.

      Oaths, Pledges, placing one’s hand on the Bible and swearing to do good, means nothing anymore. The Global Elites are working their plans to perfection. Chaos within the Republican Party and inept leadership by the RNC, we are in major trouble. I want answers too, but we are not going to get them. Even our Texas Legislators seem to be unwilling or unable to take a resolute stand against the invasion at our border and deal with the Cartels. Government all across the land is broken.

      • C M Solomon says:

        The “government” that used to be under OUR control as defined by the Constitution has been conquered [not broken by accident] by the Global Elitists that have deliberately obtained power by betrayal of the American people through deception in multiple elections as funded by an oligarchy that controls academia and social media that is nothing more than a giant Marxist propaganda machine. What is worse is that there are many books that have publicized this “action plan” to turn this Nation into another Marxist hell hole so long as the public is sufficiently “brain washed” that have been available for 50 years, yet ignored by most “Conservative” politicians that have been compromised as well and that were too lazy and too afraid to take the arrows from the Left.

    Just very tired of all of this. I have severe health problems now and do not have the strength to deal with
    other things, no matter how big or small. My mom taught me to be responsible for God first, others if possible,
    and mainly myself. She said if I’m not wello, I can’t help others.

    There are OTHER things to be concerned with . My prediction for 2024 if you interested. Though I’m a Texan
    the nation will again vote BLUE in 2024 for one reason. Incest and rape victims and survivors not protected
    in states with extreme laws. As a Texan I won’t vote Red or Blue>

    In support of Mr. Gleiser’s current warnings, the following videos and article will further explain the “real and present” dangers we face as a Constitutional Republic and the threats that the Biden Regime has illegally imported into our sovereign Nation, now under planned and deliberate assault. For many decades, our country has been slowly overtaken by elite forces that have now run amok in order to establish their version of a New World Order far beyond the knowledge or approval of its citizenry.
