Crime data shows that roughly 2,600 migrants will be murdered and roughly 103,000 will be raped or assaulted during their 2019 migration to the United States, says an estimate prepared by Steven Kopits, president of Princeton Policy Advisors.
“We estimate 80,000 migrant women were raped or coerced into sex during 2018, rising to 103,000 on higher migrant numbers in 2019,” said a statement from Kopits, whose predictions of migration increases been repeatedly validated by the eventual numbers. “These are persons … Incidents could be up to 50% higher.”
Alongside the murder and rapes, Kopits predicted 34,000 kidnappings, 21,000 cases of forced labor trafficking, and 106,000 robberies during 2019.
Kopits argues that the massive level of brutality could be sharply reduced if the United States expanded the current blue-collar guest workers programs. For example, the H-2B program brings in roughly 80,000 guest workers from Jamaica, Mexico, Honduras, and many other countries for manual labor at resorts, hotels, restaurants and forestry firms.
The similar H-2A visa program delivers more visa workers to agriculture companies, both to replace illegal aliens and also avoid the purchase of labor-saving machinery. Both programs require foreign workers to return home one a year or so, so keeping many of their families in the home country.
“In a market-based approach, 95% of the [criminal] pathology noted above disappears, virtually overnight (as does the domestic exploitation),” Kopits said in a statement to Breitbart News. He continued:
One can only imagine that, say, [Democratic Rep.] Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez would want to support legislation which would protect 100,000 women per year and see up to 100,000 imprisoned migrants released … If you have AOC, by definition you have [House Speaker Nancy] Pelosi. Democrats have little choice but to support a market-based approach, to the extent it is not otherwise cruel.
Pro-American immigration reforms groups oppose both the blue-collar programs and the white-collar programs, such as the H-1B, L-1, and OPT programs. They argue the visa worker programs lower wages and salaries and create a huge incentive for companies to exploit foreign workers and discriminate against Americans.
But it is also unclear if Democrats are willing to use the visa worker programs to prevent the murder and rape of migrants.
On March 6, for example, Democrats simply ignored the issue of crime against migrants during their questioning of Homeland Security chief Kirstjen Nielsen, even though she spoke repeatedly about the crime.
“Because of the increase in violence, at ICE, when we have families with children, we have to give every girl a pregnancy test over 10,” Nielsen said during her March 6 testimony.
