I believe the US immigration system is actually not broken. It is running exactly how those who designed it and those who profit most from it want it to run. The US and Mexican elite profit from the immigration status quo and love the fact that Americans citizens fight over it while their politicians flounder by design.
The rich from both the US and Mexico bankroll their respective elections and stick their smiling candidates’ faces in office. Those “elected” politicians ensure that their bosses’ immigration policies seldom if ever change. Don’t believe what they say. Believe your eyes. For decades this fiasco has operated exactly as designed.
The American people know it is broken, but since when do they have a voice in this? They know what is going on with failed mortgages, failed heath care, and failed economies. As of yet they are not sure about this immigration scam. That reveals the insidiousness of it. The elite’s propaganda has clouded their vision.
And the US backed drug war in Mexico, with 40,000 dead, is the ultimate example of their greed in action mowing down human beings in the process.
It isn't broken. It is running exactly as designed.
We need to be smarter than the rich. The undocumented are a symptom, not the problem. We could align with the undocumented and use current immigration laws to break the back of their system. Then with the entire World’s eyes upon them , they would have stand for the principles of democracy and fix it.
One huge fix would be to sanction the corrupt Mexican government until they take care of their own good people. That would cure about 50% of our problem.
When will Americans wake up and act?
