beforetime, i understand what yer saying, and i agree, situations like that are just down right dispicable.
But not all of them are that way.
I think we, as a nation, will have to find middle-ground on this issue, a ground where neither party is going to be 100% satisfied, and both parties
will still get what they want.
After all, 75% of the americans who are pissed off about illegal immigrants being here, stem them anger from pride and ego, having never had an ACTUAL
encounter with things like you mention in your post
That being said, whats the option?
I believe our government is going to have to dedicate a lot more resources, if only for a limited time, to the immigration department, to allow for
expedited acceptance/denials of immigration from Mexico.
I believe you force the mexicans that are here now, illegally, into some sort of a "probhation period" and you draw a line that says if you're
caught int his country after "such and such" date, illegally, you will be deported immediately.
Then, with the reamining people on "probation" you force them to pay taxes (like citizens) and especially force them to pay social security....but
deny them the benefits later in life. Sounds cruel - but hey - you came here illegally, count your blessings.
IMO, you fix a few problesm
Those here, illegally, get a chance to straighten themselves out
Those who dont want illegal aliens, are happy, because those who were once illegal, become legal
You fix social security with an influx of millions of "once illegal" mexican workers starting to pay into it.
Of course, some people wouldnt like that method, because its "not fair" that they cant reap the benefits of SS at a later date
i say you cut your losses and realize SS was never intended as a "retirement" account. You're either going to screw over millions of AMERICAN
CITIZENS by letting it go bankrupt
or you're going to slightly inconvienience a few million criminal illegal aliens and fix the entire system.
of course, this is JUST my opinion
