Wrong about what exactly?
That the immigration system was as complex and restrictive as it is today, which is what you seem to imply by likening former immigrants to what ones
must deal with today.
As a side note, if there was no need to be documented for income taxes or social programs (meaning neither existed), there really wouldn't be nearly
the problem that exists.
Who said that JUST "disparaging them" will clean it up? Not I. Yeah it's a huge stinking mess, I and those like me aim to fix it once and
for all...or try very hard to.
Good, I'd be interested to hear your plan.
"Same reasons"...nah. It's the Exchange rate between two nations that share a border. (USD) vs. (MXN) ...the Peso. Look it up sometime.
Imagine going to Canada to earn roughly 1,000 dollars a day USD.
Same reasons? Ahhh, the old "they come for a better life" cop out again? Seems I wrote a thread about that recently.
It's not a cop out, as evidenced by "t's the Exchange rate between two nations that share a border"
. More money for them and their family
equates to a better life, otherwise why would anyone try to get ahead?
The two are not mutually exclusive, and to suggest otherwise really doesn't do your point any justice.
Yeah, I don't get angry at bank robbers and Internet hackers either...they're all good guys. Banks and computers are to blame.
Perhaps "exploit" wasn't the word to convey my meaning. Try the word "use" instead. I don't get angry at those who "use" the food stamp or
Section 8 system because it's there to be used.
We could very easily adjust the taxation gap if anyone felt the need to, but it's much easier to get angry at individuals than the government.
The anger is hitting all the right places IMO. Government, Corps, Illegals themselves, President Obama and Calderon, Lawyers, Pundits, Special
Yep....we're right on track and truckin.
I'd hope not in that order, but you could have just said Government, and it would have said the same thing.
It's the government's fault, pure and simple (Federal Government at least). That's the point at the end of the day, and pissing contests between
the states and the federal governments really does little to fix the problem.
My plan would work, but few want to hear practical solutions these days.
