Immigration Reform Will Not Benefit US Taxpayers Because It Will Not Stop Illegal Immigration

In response:

Ali are you insinuating that passing immigration reform will save taxpayers' monies by somehow empting our privatized immigration prisons?

You have to be kidding. This proposed immigration reform will not stop the decades-old cycle of illegal immigration for profit or slow down our current record levels of deportations from the US.  

The ground level producer of illegal immigration is home-country poverty that (in the example of Mexico) was crafted by Washington's NAFTA.  Approximately 62% of our undocumented come from Mexico, yet not one politician or immigrants' rights groups will call out this bi-national immigration corruption for what it is:  the profitization of human beings' undocumented labor by the bi-national Mexican /US elite with all corresponding costs and consequences being absorbed by US taxpayers.

Ali I know personally how the undocumented cause over-crowded hospital emergency rooms, school rooms, job losses for US citizens and unfair/unwanted demographic changes to many Americans' hometowns.

Reagan's Amnesty, Clinton's NAFTA, and Bush's creation of DHS all failed to stop illegal immigration.  From the article:  "In other words, big business is reaping benefits from immigrant detention."  That is the tip of the illegal immigration iceberg.  Big business is reaping benefits from illegal immigration itself, not just the detention segment.  What about big agriculture?  How about the hotel/motel industries?  How about the entire border security complex?   How about politicians who reap immigration reform votes?  How about the health care industry whose hospitals charge enormous amounts of money to cover the undocumenteds' emergency room costs?  
This current immigration reform legislation in Washington does nothing to resolve our illegal immigration root problem of home-country poverty.   In fact it creates labor peonage by sentencing 11.2 million undocumented people to 13 years of labor for a possible shot at US citizenship.  Meanwhile US citizens will pay billions more for Washington's crony "border security" buddies. 

Of course Mexican propagandists will spout how wonderful their economy is doing.  They do in fact share 1.25 billion dollars a day in cross border trade with the US.  Yet the disparity in wealth between the "haves and the have-nots" in both countries is higher than it has ever been.
This Mexican atrocity could be resolved by the two governments if they were forced to govern for the people and not their own financial greed.

I honor your commitment to immigrants' rights and immigration reform.  I think you need to address poverty as the ground-level problem and attack Washington for its contribution and profitization of poverty in order to solve illegal immigration once an for all.

    Join in holding the line ...


    we stand united against amnesty, protected legal status, or whatever else they choose to call it ... this isn't about political party, this isn't about votes, and above all this isn't about race, nationality, ethnicity, color, or religion ... this is about protecting America, our sovereign nation, against an invasion by 10's of millions of illegal immigrants. Illegal immigrants who broke our laws when they crossed our border; or overstayed their visas. Then came document fraud, identity theft, and illegal employment. We are a nation of laws; we do not reward those who wantonly break our laws. We, the people, want our existing federal laws against illegal immigration enforced ... nothing more, nothing less ... it's as simple as that ... it really is
