The Border Crisis Is Anti-Woman. Here's Why

Since Title 42 ended on May 12, some 700,000 illegal aliens (the vast majority of which are men) have stormed the U.S.’s southern border. This large scale invasion spells danger and devastation for American women all over the country.

Immigration is more than a simple transfer of individuals from one region to another. When people cross borders, for better or for worse, they bring their cultures with them. Unfortunately for American women, the cultural elements embedded within many of these invading nations include high rates of femicide, sexual assault, and rape.  

Let’s Discuss: Femicide

Now, it's likely that you've never even heard the word femicide before, so let me break it down first and foremost. Femicide, as defined by UN Women, is the “intentional killing [of a woman or girl] with a gender-related motivation. Femicide may be driven by stereotyped gender roles, discrimination toward women and girls, unequal power relations between women and men, or harmful social norms.” It, along with sexual assault and rape, is obviously a cultural manifestation borne from a deep lack of respect toward the fairer sex. And what have our governing bodies done? Unleashed men with these beliefs into our country, scattered them across its landscape with busses and airplanes, and allowed them to embed themselves within the flesh of our nation. 

According to The Department of Homeland Security, the top 10 countries that illegals hail from are Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala, India, Honduras, China, the Philippines, Colombia, Brazil, and Venezuela. 

The countries claiming the highest rates of femicide are El Salvador, Antigua and Barbuda, Jamaica, Venezuela, African Republic, South Africa, Honduras, Guatemala, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Guyana, and Mexico. To put the rate at which femicide occurs in these countries into perspective, in 2022, America’s homicide rate was 6.52 per 100,000 people. In 2021, Mexico’s femicide rate was 5.8 and El Salvador’s was 13.8 women per 100,000. And our state and central governments have just allowed 5 out of the 10 world’s most dangerous countries for women to parade themselves into our country, unchecked. 

El Salvador’s femicide rate is 111% higher than America's homicide rate.

In recent years, the rates of femicide in Latin American countries have been so bad that foreign organizations such as UN Women have had to step in and help. For example, in 2016, of the top 25 countries for femicide perpetration, 14 were in Latin America and the Caribbean. Additionally, “the level of violence affecting women in El Salvador and Honduras exceed[ed] the combined rate of male and female homicides in some of the 40 countries with the highest murder rates in the world, such as Ecuador, Nicaragua and Tanzania.” And, “according to the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), on average 12 women [were] murdered a day across the region.” But this number excludes Brazil, which, as it turns out, also has an extremely high femicide rate. 

Within these countries with high femicide rates, the numbers are actually suspected to be severely underreported, as according to one survey in Mexico, conducted by The Femicide Observatory, it was found that “only 16 percent of female homicides in 2012 and 2013 were classified as femicides – and just 1.6 percent resulted in convictions.” And in El Salvador, a different case study conducted by The Organization of Salvadoran Women for Peace found that “in 12 percent of the cases of violence against women reported, the perpetrators were usually the judges, prosecutors, lawyers, and police officers.”

But we can’t forget about India and China. Just because they didn’t make the top 10 list, that doesn't mean they don’t have their own “women problems.” In India, “dowry death” claimed 19 women per day in 2020. This is defined as “the death of a woman [that] is caused by any burns [fire/acid] or bodily injury or occurs otherwise than under normal circumstances within seven years of her marriage and it is shown that soon before her death she was subjected to cruelty or harassment by her husband or any relative of her husband for, or in connection with, any demand for dowry, such death shall be called ‘dowry death’” by India’s Ministry of Law and Justice. And in China, we can’t forget their routine infanticide and sex selective abortions of baby girls which claim some 60,000 female babies per year

So yes, despite what many fans of open border policies have to say, by sheer statistics alone, American women have a right to be afraid for their lives. But we won’t stop here. Numbers are one thing, but real-life experience is another. Let’s see what happened to our friends across the pond when they introduced open border policies of their own.

Europe Is America’s Crystal Ball

In 2015, Europe faced an immigration crisis. The Syrian civil war grew heated once again, and waves of migrants flooded Europe. The cultural ramifications since then have been nothing short of disastrous. 

While Central and South America boast the highest rates of femicide in the world, the Middle East and Africa win first place on a global scale for sexual violence against women (the Caribbean and Latin America win second place, though). Once again, these statistics point to a deep seated hatred toward women and even a failure to see them as human beings at all. Unfortunately for women in the EU, we can examine this trend across its continent and use our findings to get a glimpse of what the future could hold for American women.

A group of criminally inclined immigrants in Germany started their stay off with a bang as on New Year’s Eve, 2015, a group of more than 2,000 men sexually assaulted more than 1,200 women across multiple cities, and the story broke on social media before police made public statements. When confronted with this fact, the officers defended their tardiness by stating that they were afraid their release of the information would increase racial tensions. 

In Great Britain, hundreds of underage girls across the country have been groomed and then raped by Pakistani and Afghani immigrant men, some as old as 59. One girl in particular found herself trafficked and raped by 20 men in a single night. Police failed to make arrests despite receiving tips, over fears of being labeled racist. This was back in 2012. Since then, the number of rapes and sexual assaults in the UK has only increased, with some groups citing that 1 in 4 women will fall victim to this tragedy in her lifetime. 

In Sweden, two Etritian men gang raped a woman for hours at knifepoint after invading her apartment. Prosecutors asked that Immigration deport the refugees, but the court ruled that the third-world punishments that would be enacted on the men upon their return would just be too harsh for the little dears. Instead, they were sentenced to a hefty five years of Swedish jail time and had to pay out 11,000£ each to the victim. 

By the way, Sweden is now on the global top 10 list for rapes per year. And it’s not due to its new, broader definition of rape enacted by the courts in 2018 either, which defines rape as simply “sex without consent.” The rape rate had been increasing since 2016. In fact, the average rate of rape in Sweden from 2012-2015 was 6,239 rapes per year, but from 2016-2017 the rate increased to an average of 7,042 rapes per year. That’s an increase of 803 rapes per year, without the aid of the newer, more all-encompassing definition of rape. 

1 in 4 British women will be sexually assaulted or raped in her lifetime. 

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t have a problem with the new definition. I think rape, given its very nature, is nuanced and deserves severe scrutiny, followed by harsh persecution if the accused is indeed found guilty. However, I’m just a liiiittle suspicious of the timing of this new definition. Especially given the fact that according to Swedish researchers, between the years 2000 and 2015, “almost half of [rape/attempted rape] offenders were born outside of Sweden (47.7%). Of those foreign-born offenders, 34.5% were from the Middle East/North Africa, with 19.1% hailing from the rest of Africa. As a percentage of all convicted perpetrators, therefore, 16.4% were foreign-born individuals from the Middle East/North Africa, and 9.1% were foreign-born individuals from Africa (excluding North Africa).” This is startling given the fact that only about 20% of Swedish residents are foreign-born, meaning that they are over-represented in this crime statistic “by a factor of 2.4.”

If we dive even deeper into the data, we find that “North Africa and the Middle East, represent 4.9% of Sweden’s population. Yet 16.4% of those convicted of rape and attempted rape are foreign-born individuals from North Africa and the Middle East: over-representation by a factor of 3.3. And that figure rises to 4.7 when you consider all foreign-born citizens from Africa (excluding North Africa).” The researchers also noted that these statistics are not unique to Sweden. Studies from Switzerland, Norway, Finland, and Denmark report similar findings.

In fact, since 2015, almost every single European country has seen a spike in immigration. Coincidentally, almost every single European country has also seen a spike in sexual assault and rape. Interesting. 

Now Back to America 

Here’s my final point: America is not some magical land where the laws of human psychology and basic biology don’t apply (no matter what the mainstream media says). By its very nature, diversity is divisive.

Robert Putnam, a Harvard political scientist, conducted a survey with almost 30,000 people to find out just that. He states that people who live in diverse communities tend to "distrust their neighbors, regardless of the color of their skin, to withdraw even from close friends, to expect the worst from their community and its leaders, to volunteer less, give less to charity and work on community projects less often, to register to vote less, to agitate for social reform more but have less faith that they can actually make a difference, and to huddle unhappily in front of the television." Essentially what he found is that diversity harms civic health. But it’s more than that, in terms of Europe and America, it’s harming our physical and psychological health as well.

Just ask New York. Since early May, it has witnessed this phenomenon firsthand. In one family-oriented hotel, a large number of illegal immigrants have been housed, and staff members receive daily death threats, are physically assaulted, and have guns pulled on them, and children as young as 10 years old are getting drunk and being abandoned. The rooms these immigrants are staying in are trashed, and it’s literally the hotel staff's job to babysit. Except the babies are full grown…and they’re actively trying to make your job harder…or to kill you.

In conclusion, let’s look at some final statistics, just to really hammer the nails into the not so proverbial coffin.

For whatever reason, Texas is the only state in the nation to keep track of the immigration status of its felons, and despite what organizations like CATO would have you believe, illegal immigrants do increase crime in the areas they choose to reside in.

When analyzing the DPS data from Texas, CATO made several mistakes, chiefly among them, they didn’t take into account that just because a criminal is arrested, does not mean their immigration status is automatically ascertained. Unfortunately, Texas can take years to gather that information. Essentially, the longer you’ve been rotting in jail, the more violent your crime, the more likely your immigration status is to be sought out by prosecutors. Because, if possible, Texas wants to deport its criminals back to wherever they came from. So, what the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) has done is adjusted for several inconvenient variables CATO (for whatever reason) neglected. 

Once the new data was extrapolated, CIS found that illegal immigrants in Texas are convicted at an almost twice as high rate as their legal counterparts for crimes such as homicide, sexual assault, and kidnapping. Even with the severe underestimation due to the nature of Texas’ data collection, illegals are astoundingly over-represented in the Texas prison system when compared to legal citizens. That being said, it appears Texas’ (as well as most likely the nation’s) data correlates very closely with the Swedish study findings.

Additional Concerns

Did you know there have also been large numbers of Chinese men storming the border alongside the Latin American ones? They are! In record numbers, apparently. The Chinese illegals report this mass migration is due to the severe Covid lockdown policies of the CCP crushing their businesses as well as their hopes and dreams, but I find it all just a little too convenient. Here’s why.

The CCP has a stranglehold on the internet in China. Yet, just one day, randomly, out of the blue, videos started popping up on Chinese citizens’ Douyin (Chinese TikTok) feeds, detailing the exact, complicated flights to take in order to reach Ecuador, and from there, Mexico. Yeah, that’s not suspicious at all. Either way, no matter who’s involved, mass numbers of Chinese men are now illegally in the U.S., along with…

In 2022, about 130,000 unaccompanied minors illegally crossed the border. 

16 men from the FBI’s terror watch list! And those are just the ones we know about! But wait, there’s more! That was just for the month of April! So far, this year, there have been 98 terrorist encounters on the USA's northern and southern borders with terrorists attempting to cross illegally (not through official entry ports). Back in 2020 and beyond, the average illegal terrorist crossing per year was 0-6. As for the terrorists attempting to enter America through official ports of entry, that number totals at 295. At this rate, we will exceed last year's record of 380 encounters. 

One last thing. The rate of unaccompanied minors entering the U.S. has also exploded. The highest number of children the U.S. border saw before the spike was in 2019, at 69,488. In 2021, that number jumped to 122,732. And then in 2022, we had another record-breaking year of about 130,000 children. The odd thing (besides the 87% increase in unaccompanied minors) about all of this is that in recent years, there’s been an increase in children from India and Romania. Even more concerning is the fact that “The largest number of people trafficked into the United States come from East Asia and the Pacific (5,000 to 7,000 victims). The next highest numbers come from Latin America and from Europe and Eurasia, with between 3,500 and 5,500 victims from each.” 

As the U.S. is the world’s largest consumer and producer of child sexual abuse material, there is no good reason these children are here alone. 

Closing Thoughts

Look, I’m all for legal immigration. If our current policies need to be reformed so that deserving individuals from foreign countries can have a shot at a better life, let’s talk about it. Additionally, I’m not saying all illegal immigrants in America will go on to commit heinous crimes. I believe that most of them are good people. However, this open borders, anything goes, my parents are out of town, so invite as many friends as you can, situation has got to stop. 

As unpopular as it may be to acknowledge it, it’s a fact that open borders and the ensuing lack of cultural homogeneity increase crime and decrease the safety of law-abiding citizens. We also know that the crimes prevalent in a particular country get transferred to the next with the migration of individuals from said country. So, in the case of America, the increase of femicide is a very real threat. If our borders remain open and our lawmakers and prosecutors continue to be cowards, America’s future is doomed to be an anti-woman one.
