Philadelphia Collar Counties

Richest in PA – at Risk?

Did you know that as of January 2024 that Chester, Bucks, Montgomery, and Delaware Counties are the richest counties in Pennsylvania as measured by average home price and median income? If you live in one of these counties, then consider that you are doing well financially. 

The problem is that this information isn’t a secret. Many of the wealthiest areas around the country are being targeted by foreign South American gangs who are highly trained and equipped in breaking & entering and burglary. 

Some are entering this country through the Visa Waiver Program, which allows foreign nationals to bypass getting a visa and allows them to stay in this country for 90 days visa-free. Many overstay that time period. Others simply cross the American borders illegally looking for “a better life” in this country. It stands to reason that their better life will come at a cost to someone else — you!  Once they are here and the free housing, airfare, and debit cards run out, they’ve got to eat. So, why not take your cash and re-sell your jewelry and Hermes bags? If they are willing to break the law to enter our country, what’s the difference in entering your homes and taking what they want?

Bottom line…

It’s only a matter of time before the Philadelphia collar counties are targeted. Protect your home, your belongings, and your family from these criminal gangs by using your home alarm, maintaining a regular presence at your home, and notifying the police immediately if you see anything suspicious!

Finally, contact your Senator and Congress Member to demand they take action on closing the border and restricting the Visa Waiver Program.
