Mexican President Fox has said that he wants totally open borders so that citizens of Mexico, the U.S., and Canada can freely live, work, and travel wherever they desire. Wonder how many Canadians and Americans would rush to Mexico to work and live? Fox and his lackeys are playing the part of the hypocrite regarding immigration. They don’t practice what they preach!
Fox wants his poorest of the poor to come to the U.S. to work because that solves one of his biggest problems plus those poor (who work) usually send money back to Mexico. Fox can’t lose. But you can.
Mexico requires people who immigrant to their country to have useful skills and a pension plan from their nation of origin! They also vigorously enforce border control at their Southern border!
Mexico requires people who immigrate to their country to have useful skills and a pension plan from their nation of origin! They also vigorously enforce border control at their Southern border! If the U.S. enforced similar laws, the Mexican officials would scream like a stuck pig! How do you say “hypocrites” in Spanish?
Wonder what would happen if I were caught slipping into Mexico? Do you think they would give me a survival pack and point me in a northerly direction? How about years in a stinking prison and gaining my freedom only after enormous bribes to the proper officials?
It is irresponsible to suggest that a huge influx of low-skilled, under-educated, often hostile gatecrashers will not have a long term, adverse effect on America. Your nation is being changed as you sleep. Now if you don’t mind that and your bleating heart demands that we open our borders to permit anyone access, then so be it. But don’t whine when you can’t get a job or when your taxes are double what they are now, when your kids can’t be educated in an overcrowded public school (where they shouldn’t be anyway), when you see signs in Spanish everywhere you look, and when workers who are supposed to serve you don’t speak clear English.
My critics whine that people are suffering all over the world, and many of the gatecrashers only want a better life. That is true; however, does that mean that America must become the social welfare system for the world, as well as the world’s policeman? After all, is there not a limit to what one country can do? And most Americans don’t realize that we take in over half of the immigrants of the world! Wait a minute, what about England, Spain, Germany, France, Australia, etc.? If immigration is good for America, then it would be good for other nations, so let’s spread it around so that all countries can benefit!
Pro-immigration voices will accuse me and others of wanting to pull up the ladder once we have climbed aboard the ship. Yes, all nations are nations of immigrants, but just because we have been generous in the past does not mean that we must have no restrictions in the future. After all, every ship has a limit as to the number of passengers it can carry. Pulling up one more passenger may sink the boat! My question for pro-immigration advocates: Should America permit an unlimited number of immigrants? No sane person believes in unlimited immigration!
May I suggest that authorities make a concerted effort to apprehend all illegal immigrants; jail those who are known criminals and expel all others who are “only” gatecrashers? If we picked up only one terrorist in the group, it would be worthwhile. After all, he may be the one planning to drop a bomb over your city or poison your water supply! But how could we remove them? Simply load Mexican illegal aliens in a ship off the California coast, sail to the southern Mexican Coast, and dump them for Mexican officials to deal with. Then give each of the remaining illegal aliens a one way ticket to the country of their origin or to one of the nations whose leaders whine about the U.S. “pulling up the ladder!”
I suggest that we:
*Pull up the ladder. No more immigration for at least three years.
*Plug all holes in our northern and southern borders even using the military, drones, helicopters, etc.
*Assess large penalties to any employer who hires an illegal alien.
*Recognize that non-citizens do not have the rights that Americans have. Deport all who are here illegally. Fingerprint and photograph them and imprison them if they return.
*Fingerprint and photograph all visitors who come to America from Islamic nations. Fine them heavily if they overstay their visas.
*Reject multiculturalism (all cultures and religions have equal value) as anti-American and anti-common sense. We will no longer have a guilt complex for being Americans.
President Bush should inform all federal enforcement agencies that any illegal alien will be held in jail, not released. “Catch and release” may be great if one is fishing for fun but it is folly if one is trying to protect a nation. Good people can honestly disagree about the war in Iraq but when it comes to protecting America’s borders it is clear: If politicians don’t protect America from cultural suicide and terrorist activities, what good will a tax cut and similar issues do us? If Bush fails here, and it looks as if he is, then his legacy will be a president who failed to keep his oath to uphold the Constitution. I think that is still an impeachable offense!
