It seems to me the country has tried to compromise many times, without a positive solution.
What is the often quoted definition of insanity?


The country has ceded many times, but compromise is defined as a sacrifice on both sides.


So in your opinion, the U.S. citizen hasn't sacrificed enough yet? And as for those 10-20 million here illegally, what are they sacrificing by getting amnesty? How about all those waiting in line legally, are they just suckers for not having broken the law and come here illegally?

Where is the sacrifice from the non country side?

That's a good point.

People trying to come in legally should take precedence.

Forgive me, I must have missed it in your OP. What was your suggestion for the sacrifice from the illegals?

You're going to be plastered for easing back from the edge into moderate territory! Compromise at this point seems to be only a preface to treason in some folks eyes.

Seeking a valid solution to a valid problem should never be frowned upon. Not a bad idea, not bad at all DB!


One should never be afraid to be wrong on occasion.
Thanks.


Absolutely. I can think of 113 Billion reasons why it needs a sound resolution and 11.4 Million reasons why it is urgent.

I didn't list any.

What might you suggest?

Go home and do it the same legal way that so many others are waiting to do.
Is it such an unreasonable request?

With that many people, we'd need more processing stations.

Actually a good idea. But you'd really have to care about making america great for something like that to work.

How many people from this country or that country do we want to let in?

I haven't looked into the numbers that we are or agree to let immigrate.

So do we need to have these large Ellis type set ups or are the numbers manageable with the system we have?


Why not deal with Mexico?

For every million of theirs that we take in, they lose x amount of square mileage of their country?


The US could just invade Mexico, then they wouldn't have to move anywhere as they'd already be in the US.

Not at all. The legal limit for folks immigrating has not changed.
Just because more might ask doesn't mean more are accepted.

Once they start the round up in earnest I wonder how many detention centers the feds will build to hold the ones that have to be either shipped or flown back to their countries.

What you are arguing for (it seems to me) is for a path for citizenship for anyone wanting to come into the country, unless they are an enemy of the state. No country has those kinds of resources.




Perhaps I'm just trying to find a compromise to an untenable situation.


The US already has a compromise in place, its called legally applying for citizenship.

If you cant respect that law why would you respect any of the others?

It would be cool if the entire population of Mexico stormed the border.
Then I would move down there and have my own country.

You were close and then you completely lost the plot.

There are idealistic approaches and realistic approaches.

I's never bad to be idealistic. but I do try to be realistic from time to time.


I keep trying to understand why Mexicans get a free pass over the other few billion that would love to come here and work. We tried back in the 80s to clean it up some and made 5 million legal and that just created 10 to 20 more million now wanting more of the same. I have a sister in law who I paid for her visa and she was approved 12 years ago, still waiting to come here legally, so I kind of have a dark view on those who come here illegally and now want to go to the front of the line.

An open letter.
I guess it´s not the best idea because Trump can´t read:
