They continue to cross the border ONLY because they know that the politicians WANT them to cross, and become cheap labor.
While I'm not sure this is the answer, it seems ironic to think we could suggest militarizing our border, but the thought of asking a
potential illegal for his ID is off limits.
Like I said before, everyone wants a solution, but who is willing to pay the price?
Ok, let's bring the ban hammer down on Big Business. No more hiring illegal/undocumented works or pay huge huge fines. Sounds good right? Ok well
first we got to establish a governmental oversight commitee, ya know, a bunch of crusty white politicians. They can sit there and say, ok these rules
apply local business' but walmart and (insert megacorp) are cool because we got lots of money from them. There's problem number 1. Whos gonna watch
Problem 2: Oh boy we just created more government, which means more money being spent, rules regulations statutes exemptions legislations bills
comittees hearings. More beauracracy, red tape, software systems to manage all this and telecommunications etc etc etc. Where's all the money coming
from for this? For a bunch of people who are so wary of government it seems odd to be clamoring for more....
Problem 3: Ok no more free healthcare, no driving, immediate deportation if caught. Ok well now we've got a bunch of unemployed, sick, desperate,
paranoid, illegal people. ANybody wanna take a wild stab at the percentage of people that will commit another crime as a result of these dire
circumstances? I'd be willing to bet that a fair amount will pack up and go back to wherever they came from. But I'd also be willing to bet that a
comparable number, will try and stay. Because they tasted the good life ya know, their used to being here, all their friends and family are here now.
Plus they will have legal friends and family that are sympathetic to their situation. So problem 3 is you're going to have signifigant amoutns of
people that won't be easily removed from our country. This will lead to resentment and fear and paranoia for everybody.
Problem 4: Ok so fortify our borders, bring troops home from other wars and put them to work. Now we got the army rollin around in hummers in your
neighborhood. Oooh scary, the police state is right around the corner right? So we got SEAL snipers watchin the borders. They plug a couple of drug
runners, now it's an internation crisis cuz they were unarmed and we got human rights violations and people in mexico start rushing the borders and
now suddenly we really are defending our border. Cuz you know, soon as you tell somebody they can't cross this line some tough guy got to step up and
And of course, the War on the Border will be perpetual. Cuz for every way we find to secure it, someone will conveniently find a way around it. So
it'll just go round and round. People will get nervous about bein so close to the heat that they'll move away. Now the economies of the border
states start to suffer cuz people are leavin. The illegals will move with them. Oh you thought they were gone? LOL nah, it's just even more
underground. The Underground Railroad 2.0 ya dig?
Meanwhile white people are are all fearful and stuff, Mommy theres a alien under my bed QQ
But back to the business:
So now the cheap labor is harder to come by, only the "Too Big To PLay By The Rules" institutions will have access to illegal workers. So some
business shut their doors, because they can;t compete. Prices for stuff goes up, people lose jobs, more welfare and unemployment and stuff. Crime goes
up, depression goes up. Less people go to college.
You get the idea.
So does anybody have an idea that won't hurt anybody? Or should we be careful what we wish for?
