Immigration Reform: Ready to Revolt?

In response:

Ready to Revolt?

Self-serving Washington profiteers using the cause of the undocumented (which their own failed polices create) in order to again stick it to the US taxpayers? 

Reagan's 1986 Amnesty promises to end illegal immigration but fails miserably.  This of course happened after the 1986 Amnesty legislation obtained huge tax increases for border and interior enforcement.      

Clinton and his 1994 NAFTA promise to end illegal immigration but stabs us in the back by simultaneously creating US job losses and the largest increase of undocumented sneaking into the US ever. 

Bush's  2002 creation of DHS adds billions more to his administration's border security build up and yet we still have to deal with 11 million undocumented today?

Now these 2013 Washington immigration reform profiteers want billions more for a new and improved border build up and the doubling in size of the US Border Patrol?  

We the People have to be nuts if we do not see the pattern here.

We need to get to the bottom of this no matter which political party you blame for decades of Washington madness.   

The US and Mexican elite share 1.25 billion dollars a day (that's 452.5 billion dollars a year) in cross border trade yet the corrupt Mexican government can't provide for its own citizens who make up 60% of our undocumented?

Read how our own US State Department glorifies our relations with Mexico but forgets to mention the undocumented and drug war dead.
The US government supports a failed Mexican Drug War that sacrifices over 100,000 lives  (including US agents)?  How many Mexican undocumented had to escape north because of this horrific war?

Need I remind you that President Nixon officially declared our War On Drugs in 1971?  Over forty years later, one trillion dollars spent, the largest prison population in the world, the most weapons manufactured in the world, the largest drug usage in the world, and yet we support Mexico's President Calderon in the use of his own corrupt military to fight "Mexico's"  war on drugs?  We support a fight against Mexican cartels and organized crime which have been de facto running Mexico's government for one hundred years?

Looks more like a corporate cartel take over Mexican style.  Mexico profits from illegal commodities (drugs/people).  US taxpayers' monies granted to US corporate industries developed to stop or control those commodities (drug war/border security) .  US banks launder cartel profits.  US corporations use illegal labor.  US government grants another amnesty while asking for more border security tax monies.  US  government co-creates poverty in Mexico (NAFTA) that pushes the Mexican undocumented here.  US government supports Mexico's failed drug war.  US has the highest prison and drug addiction rates in the world.  The cycle repeats itself ad infinitum.           
I stress Washington's current relationship with Mexico in order to illustrate the insidious truths lurking beneath US Immigration reform.  Truths that Washington knows but hopes we ignore. 

Truths that if not addressed will be shamefully passed along for our next generation to deal with and suffer from.
