I saw The Arroyo last night on NewsMax television. It had been edited for duration and content, so I didn't get to see the uncut movie, but I'm buying a copy to remedy that.
With all the problems concerning Islam beating down on us like waves, and the race baiters working overtime to make a buck off that issue, it's easy to forget we still have a huge problem with illegal immigration. It doesn't help that the hedonist in the White House is all for importing as many people as he can since he knows they will vote for his party, legally or otherwise. After all, the Democrats can turn this whole country into a Third World ant heap, and the same lordly people in D.C. who caused it will still be living in mansions and taking trips to Hawaii. The fact that the rest of us will face a continuing and dramatic decline in the quality of life weighs not a whit with Barrack Hussein or his underlings and true believers.
Every one of these illegal immigrants requires federal funds to maintain. The tax payer picks up the tab for their food, housing, education, medical care, and for the additional prison population which is their primary contribution to American life. They usually do not speak our language, do not have any skills, and simply settle comfortably into the welfare culture that already exists here. The younger ones often do find lucrative employment, but it's working for the gangs and cartels. The money to pay for the whole fiasco has to be squeezed out of Americans who work, and the numbers of useless people who have to be cared for is huge and growing. The strain on the economy is enormous and this is an economy already tottering on the edge of collapse without the additional burdens the illegals create.
The Arroyo is a privately funded movie that tries to depict the situation on the Southern border as it really is, which is why no major studio in Hollywood would touch it. It's a low budget film, with no big name actors. However, I think they accomplished their purpose, and the movie is well done. As far as I can tell, it was not shown in any theaters, and the only television station to carry it that I can find is NewsMax. That's a politically conservative channel that usually shows documentaries and news broadcasts, so The Arroyo being on there was something of a surprise. I'm glad they aired it, and I recognize it required a certain amount of moral courage on their part to do so.
No doubt NewsMax will get audited now, and their broadcast license may get pulled. That's how Obama and his cronies work.
