Will Washington's Border Hunger Games Get Harder?

In response:

Will Washington's Border Hunger Games Get Harder?

Does Obama and Washington really care about the undocumented and their families? Or is his executive order simply another insidious ploy to keep his Corporate Masters' party in power while keeping undocumented laborers coming to the US for said Masters' profits?   

Did you notice - or have you ever noticed - how Obama and Washington ignore their Corporate Master's NAFTA and Drug War as central factors exacerbating illegal immigration to the US?  

Yet Obama may try and give another faction of his Corporate Masters (those of the border security industrial complex) 20,000 more border patrol agents?  Think of the costs passed on to taxpayers - payroll, training, border patrol stations, detention centers, court personnel, overtime pay, retirements, cars, guns, ammunition, walkie-talkies, cell phones, computers, law suits, Et. al.

Think of Washington's Corporate Masters' 40+ year long, one trillion dollar failed drug war.  Their illegal immigration version of the same is not far behind.    

Only a fool would ignore the fact that Obama's executive order will - without a doubt - entice millions more undocumented people to come to the US.  Only a fool would believe that hungry, motivated people can be stopped from finding a way into the US.

Only a fool would believe that America won't go through this immigration reform rigamarole again.    
By the way, I speak as a retired US Border Patrol/INS/ICE agent.  I speak as someone who recently exposed US Border Patrol overtime corruption. In fact this corruption is the same corruption I exposed 30 years ago as a young agent.

Most importantly of all - think of how much more difficult it will be for hungry people to cross the border in order to come to work for Obama's and Washington's Corporate Masters.  Think of the hope for a better life that will drive these poor people here. Think of continued border deaths.

Obama pretends to care for the undocumented and their families yet he says not one word about Washington's corrupt trade and drug war policies that not only causes those people to suffer in poverty at home but also entices them to come to America illegally.  

Yes Mr. President your Border Hunger Games just got harder and more fallacious.

I dare say that the blood of the undocumented who will suffer border deaths to come is on your hands, Washington's and your Corporate Masters'.

American Voters Are Immigration And Drug War Idiots

In response:

American Voters Are Immigration And Drug War Idiots

They have no clue as to Washington's NAFTA and drug war complicity in creating illegal immigration and its ensuing immigration reform(s).

Meanwhile the undocumented and drugs keep rolling in.

Washington's corporate cronies keep hiring the undocumented, jailing the addicted, and laundering cartel profits while billions in border security boodle - given out for 40 years - have produced semi-effective (at best) border and interior immigration or drug enforcement.

Why the hell don't you give Amnesty to the American drug addicts who you help foster and profit off of too?

The American Middle Class - Tag-team Immigration Swindled

In response:

The American Middle Class - Tag-team Immigration Swindled 

The American middle class - tag-team immigration swindled by the people "we" elect to represent our best interests.

One party plays the good immigration cop, the other the bad; yet both work for the same department of kleptocracy.

Both parties use the undocumented to further their masters' lust for cheap labor and border security boodle.

Meanwhile the American taxpayers are stuck with the costs and consequences.

The undocumented will keep coming yet none of these Washington immigration profiteers (who all claim to stand for the dignity of human beings and their families) will say one word about the border deaths or continued poverty their decades' old, corrupt NAFTA/drug war swindle will continue to produce.

Complacent Americans Aid and Abet Washington's Illegal Immigration Scam

In response:

Complacent Americans Aid and Abet Washington's Illegal Immigration Scam

Jump right into the immigration mix American voters.  Take a stand.  Pick one side or the other of Washington's illegal immigration narrative.  Rage at Obama, The Republicans, Liberals, Immigration Activists, The Undocumented, Amnesty, Mexico, Et al., ad infinitum.

Refuse to consider the fact that Washington is complicit in creating the very illegal immigration it refuses to fix.

Refuse to consider Washington's NAFTA, CAFTA and drug wars as substantive factors exacerbating illegal immigration.

Refuse to consider the fact that Washington's corporate cronies not only profit from - but depend upon - undocumented workers in order to maintain their exorbitant profit margins.

Refuse to consider the fact that immigration enforcement - like drug enforcement - has become institutionalized as another ineffective industry which is just as addicted to our tax dollars as America's drug addicts are to the products said industries can't stop.

Refuse to consider that the fact that the American middle class again will be ignored as it absorbs the costs and consequences of Washington's decades'-old immigration scam.

Refuse to consider the fact that the blood of the next wave of undocumented who - without a doubt - will come to America and suffer border deaths - will not only be on Washington's hands, but yours too.

Wake up.  Not matter how many agents Washington sticks on the border,  its enforcement efforts will never effectively stop hungry, motivated people.

Be willing to consider corporate America's insidious immigration motives which dwell outside of Washington's immigration narrative.

The Other Pawns In Washington's Illegal Immigration Scam

In Response:

The Other Pawns In Washington's Illegal Immigration Scam

Americans have had it with having to suffer the costs and consequences of Washington's decades' long, profitized illegal immigration scam.

Do any of Washington's millionaire politicians have to wait in line in over-crowded hospital emergency rooms? Lose jobs to the undocumented? See their tax dollars wasted on ineffective border security? Watch as failed enforcement unfairly turns the demographics of their towns into that of border towns?

Nope. Those calling the immigration shots live way above all that.

We know we are being used as pawns, just as the undocumented are. Yet who will put a stop to this madness?

President Obama do you expect us to be compassionate for the other pawns in this game while ignoring our own dignity and self respect?  Do you expect "We The People" to be labeled the "bad guys" because Washington abuses the undocumented at our expense?

How dare you President Obama (or Washington) victimize us for your cronies' profits.  How dare you dictate that "We The People" must accept your position - or be labeled as uncompassionate and uncaring because of your unilateral, undemocratic actions!

The Power of Willful Ignorance And Immigration Reform

The Power Of Willful Ignorance And Immigration Reform

One cannot underestimate the power of willful ignorance as it applies to illegal immigration and immigration reform.

Washington capitalizes upon America's willful ignorance about many issues, and illegal immigration is one of them: 

The majority of the undocumented come here because they need to feed their families

Washington's corporate cronies (agriculture, construction, fast-food, hotel-motel, food processing) not only hire but profit from using undocumented laborers

Washington's NAFTA and its war on drugs are designed to exacerbate profitable illegal immigration

Washington's Immigration "reform" rewards and guarantees its profitable illegal immigration cycle

Washington's cronies make billions from tax payer funded, ineffective border security boodle

Washington's ineffective yet profitized war on drugs and illegal immigration have dragged on at tax payer expense for over 40 years

Voters "buy into" and continually debate Washington's fallacious, illegal immigration narrative

Americans also suffer the costs and consequences of Washington's insidious system of profitized illegal immigration (overcrowded emergency rooms, school rooms, job loses, and unfair demographic changes to American home towns) 

Washington's ineffective drug and immigration enforcement have become institutionalized and normalized in America

Washington's profitized yet ineffective handling of illegal immigration is no different than that of its handling of health care, jobs, fuel and food costs, education, housing, jobs, elections, foreign policy (war) and the economy.

Institutionalized (Fill In The Blank) Ineffectiveness Brings Billions to Washington's Cronies

In response:

Institutionalized (Fill In The Blank) Ineffectiveness Brings Billions to Washington's Cronies 

Does (or did) any of Washington's cronies profit from ineffective health care?  How about the war in Iraq?  How about the Great Recession of 2008?  How about higher education and student loans?  How about the rising costs of fuel and food?  How about ineffective environmental protection?  How about NAFTA job losses? How about our 40+ year long war on drugs?      

You fill in the blank.  AND why would ineffective immigration laws and enforcement be any different? 

As a retired US Border Patrol/INS/ICE agent, it took me years to accept the truth. All things immigration in Washington revert back to crony profits from cheap labor, border security boodle, political graft, ineffective/profitable enforcement and NAFTA/CAFTA trade agreements that favor the trading rich at the expense of their countries citizens.

Washington's illegal immigration scam is not unlike their war on drugs: unwinnable
by design which translates into decades of acceptable enforcement ineffectiveness in exchange for billions in tax payer-funded corporate boodle.
