Email to Colorado Senator Bennet ref: Immigration Reform

Senator Bennet,

It has taken me years to figure out what underlies Washington's  approach to illegal immigration is really about.

Question:  there is something so very wrong with our leaders allowing a major trading partner (Mexico) to discard their poor North at the expense of US taxpayers.

Or put another way, there is something so very wrong with our leaders ignoring that US taxpayers suffer the cost and consequences of the Mexican elite not providing for its own citizens.

Or put another way, the US and Mexican elite simultaneously profit not only off of the Mexican undocumented, but US taxpayers too. Consider cheap labor, billions in remittances pumped back into Mexico's economy, and billions in taxpayers' costs for the privatization and government corporatization of the US Border Security Industrial Complex Complex.  

These are the insidious truths you guys are not discussing.  These are the insidious truths that left ignored will cause any immigration reform to fail.
