The Immigration Bill. Its been called everything, from "racists" to "amnesty" and the bill has met protest across the Union. With Hispanics
holding banners and chanting "we want our land back" and others openly admit they "want Southern Western states to join Mexico". To be honest, a
smaller Union would not be a bad thing for America.
President Abraham Lincoln did say that the United States would never be divided again. Sadly, it seems, the Union is once again divided. Mexican
immigration is very high, and there is believed to be about 12 million illegal workers within the United States, mostly from Mexico and other Hispanic
States. With this 12 million workers, who are not paying tax and who are living in poverty, the average American has to pay for them aswell (illegal
immigration is a huge problem for any Economy).
Above is a statistical map of Hispanic immigration in the United States, as we can see, the majority are around the South Western States. These
majority States are, what use to be called, Aztlan. Wiki gives this excellent description of Aztlan;
Aztlán ([asˈ.tlan], from Nahuatl Aztlan [ˈas.tɬaːn]) is the legendary ancestral home of the Aztec, also known as the "Mexica". It is
represented as a volcano in a lake, located in what is now north of Mexico (including the territory from Texas to California annexed by the United
States after the Mexican-American War), onto which the first Mexica emerged at the beginning of the fourth world. The word Aztec, rarely used by the
Mexica to describe themselves, derives from Aztecatl, meaning "from Aztlán." The character of the place itself has less of a role in the legendary
histories than the migration that was undertaken by the Mexica after they left Aztlán and before they settled in Tenochtitlan (also an island in a
lake, the replica of their original home).
So Aztlan is apparently, currently, "occupied" and the calls are coming for independence then a merge with Mexico. I say, let them have it. Here are
my reasons; (the call is coming from Aztlan groups and Mexicans who want South Western States back)
Illegal immigrants live in Poverty, get free health care, they do not speak English and they do not pay taxes. All of these factors are a drain on a
Economy. Poverty restricts Economic growth. Removing these States will cut down the drain on the Economy and the money, that has to be spent on
illegal immigration, can be invested to other parts of the Union.
Gross domestic product is one way of measuring the size of the Economy. The United States has the largest Economy in the World, which i believe the
current GDP is 3.5%, the biggest sector of the US Economy is service. The Southern States have the lowest median incomes with some living below the
Poverty line. If Hispanics and Mexico want these States, they will have to take on the poverty within these States. This means the United States will
loose a large percentage of the Poverty drain on its Economy. With less States within the Union, the Government can invest in other sectors of the
Economy, increasing the budget of Manufactoring in Cities like Detriot and create job opportunities with investment in poorer areas of the Union.
With cutting unemployment, investing in poorer areas and spending more on manufactoring, the United States can aim to be increasing its GDP to about
Of course, a smaller Union will result in an easier time to administrate over. History has shown, the a large country can be hard to control over.
With a smaller Union and less Cizitens, the country will become a closer community. The nation will probably become more tighter and more patriotic in
their nation and fellow country men.
Due to the United States giving up states, its border control accross the Union will become a lot more tighter on immigration from Hispanic States.
This will be a good thing for the United States as it tries to maintain its leadership within the world.
Final thoughts and my views, do i think this will happen? I can see a break away within the next 10 years and i do not think it will be a bad move by
the United States. Overall, it will create a better Union for the American people. Sometimes, history shows us that fresh starts can be a good
