Setting the Forest Fires Americans Won’t Set

To the long list of reasons to assert control over who pours into the country, we can add forest fires, like the Springs Fire that has been ravaging Colorado, forcing hundreds to evacuate their homes:

Jesper Joergensen, 52, was taken into custody last Saturday for the suspected arson that started the Springs Fire, according to Costilla County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page.

Joergensen is not a U.S. citizen and will be handed over to ICE once he has faced arson charges, said a Costilla County detention officer.

Good thing leftists like Kirsten Gillibrand and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez haven’t accomplished their goal of disbanding ICE yet.

The fire has scorched over 38,000 acres (15,378 hectares) between the towns of Fort Garland and La Veta in southern Colorado, forcing more mandatory evacuations of homes and ranches on Saturday in a mountainous area of public and private land.

In addition to the vast property damage and all the fauna killed and flora destroyed, massive carbon emissions must have been produced. That ought to get progressives concerned.

Joergensen hails from Denmark. Our open borders are a beacon to people from every corner of the world. Those who enter the country illegally are not people we want here.

This is far from the first time an illegal alien has started a forest fire in the flammably arid Southwest. Even open borders–friendly John McCain is aware of the problem. In 2011 he coauthored a statement with other prominent Arizona politicians that read in part:

“During our tour of the damaged areas caused by the Wallow Fire on Saturday, we were briefed by senior Forest Service officials, one of whom informed us that some wildfires in Arizona (across our southern border) are regrettably caused by drug smugglers and illegal immigrants. This statement is consistent with what we’ve been hearing for years, as well as testimony by the Forest Service and media reports dating back as far as 2006.”

A GAO report of forest fires occurring during 2006–2010 identified 30 illegal aliens guilty of starting them.

Border control is a national security issue. That’s why we have ICE.
