34,000

Daily U.S. profits? Daily U.S. debt? U.S. government shutdown losses?

No. This number – 34,000 – pertains to how many immigrants that the U.S. Congress mandates must be locked up at all times.

Mandates.

This number of 34,000 immigrants is a concrete law in the U.S.  And it is costing U.S. taxpayers 5 billion dollars per year.

5 billion dollars.

For every apologist of the Obama administration, for every person that complains about immigrants who take away jobs and money from the U.S., for every individual who purports to give a damn about what happens with immigration reform in the U.S., watch this video. It’s all of two minutes and thirty-eight seconds.

Remember that as you read this blog post, at least 34,000 immigrants are locked up on U.S. soil.

Watch the video. Connect with the Community Initiatives for Visiting Immigrants in Confinement (CIVIC) Sign their petition and get involved. 

And then tell me again who truly benefits on a daily basis from our broken immigration system.
