If any of your open border liberal friends or family need more proof that U.S. immigration needs to be enforced under a zero tolerance policy, look no further than this horrific story out of California.
The Department of Homeland Security confirmed Tuesday that they’ve arrested an illegal alien for sexual abuse of a juvenile girl whom he’d falsely claimed was his daughter in order to gain entry into the United States.
Even worse, the girl’s mother told her daughter to go with the predator after he promised to secure the mother a job in the U.S.
Hard to believe liberals who advocate a different set of standards for border jumpers “with children” didn’t see this coming.
Even though the Border Patrol told them it would. https://t.co/PCoO5UkIZA

According to a statement from DHS officials, Ramon Pedro was arrested on July 27 by the Huron Police Department in California after doctors at the Fresno Community Regional Hospital discovered his supposed daughter had been sexually assaulted. Pedro and the girl had initially been admitted to the hospital to undergo Tuberculosis (TB) screening.
Police charged Pedro with a multitude of abuses. He’s currently being held in Fresno County Jail on $310,000 bond.
Again: How much more proof do liberals need that the border needs to be secured?
In June, Sen. Tom Cotton warned that Democrats’ proposed legislation to end separation of families at the border would encourage child trafficking – and he’s right. The example detailed above isn’t the first time violent criminal illegals have used and abused children to enter the U.S., and it likely won’t be the last so long as open-border liberals continue to allow immigrants to exploit loopholes within U.S. immigration law.
Furthermore, sexual abuse is far from the only crime lax border security breeds. According to a 2014 report, illegal traffickers are responsible for 90 percent of the heroin in America, a drug that is ravaging communities across the country.
But if talking about the negatives aren’t enough to convince open border liberals to change their minds, let’s talk about the positives. According to federal immigration data, President Donald Trump’s proposed $18 billion border wall would pay for itself if it prevented just 12 percent of future illegal crossings. If it prevented 50 percent of crossings, it would save American taxpayers a whopping $64 billion.
In other words, there’s literally no reason not to close the border. Period.
