I disagree that Hispanics are the backbone of the US military, but never-the-less, our love for lime and booze on ice means nothing as far as
Fact remains that we own the land. In that I mean that we control and claim it, backed by our military, so that’s pretty much a done deal. Even if
we don't, we have more than made up for it with the residual wealth flowing down from their family members up here, among other things.
Personally, the big problem with the southern border has much less to do with race, and more to do with the condition of the people. The folks in
Canada don't come here. Mainly because their economy, business, holdings are comparable to our own, much unlike most places South of here.
Dumping thousands of unregistered people, not paying taxes, taking benefits, working for slave wages, etc is not proper for either side.
Should people want to come here, fine, but there needs to be a reasonable formula with which to execute the plan.
We can't just let them trot across with nary a glance.
We need to plug all holes (as much as possible) and establish an Ellis Island with a pass/no pass system.
Meet the criteria and you can come in, you don't, go home.
The damn long time citizens have to play by the rules, but somehow it's unfair to make the new guys (who as of their arrival have yet to contribute
one red cent) as well?
Silly; preposterous for that matter.
