CIR: I Got Mine So The Hell With The Rest Of You

In response:

CIR:  I Got Mine So The Hell With The Rest Of You

After years of immigration related human-rights abuses (by the undocumenteds' home country "governments" and the US government too), years of their profit-driven/poverty-producing  economic policies, and years of Washington's failure (by design) to effectively control illegal immigration, what would anyone expect at a public discussion including Washington's current version and convoluted contemplation of Comprehensive Immigration Reform (CIR)?

CIR is a profit-driven attempt at compromise that if approved will allocate billions more of US tax dollars being pumped into Washington's crony "border security" black-hole -  AND, will not - I repeat - will not (by their design) effectively stop illegal immigration. 

So here are the real questions that neither side of the debate will address:  Besides the obvious immigration benefit to 11.2 million undocumented people, who will also profit from this CIR and who will profit from the next, and the next, ad infinitum?

We were promised an end to illegal immigration with Reagan's 1986 Amnesty, Clinton's 1994 NAFTA, and Bush's creation of DHS in 2003.   Why in God's name should we believe you now?
Mexican poverty currently runs at about 48% and 62% of the US undocumented are Mexican.  Why does CIR fail to mention (Mexican) poverty as the root cause of US illegal immigration?  The US shares 1.25 billon dollars a day in NAFTA cross border trade, yet Mexico's poor have to leave Mexico in order to sneak into the US in try and etch out a bit of prosperity they are not afforded at home?

Tell me oh wise Washington CIR politicians:  have you ever bothered to ask the Mexican undocumented if they would bother to come or stay here if they could have similar opportunities to prosper at home?
Tell me something all of you CIR advocates:  How many more undocumented people will die crossing the border and will continue to suffer poverty because this CIR, and the next, and the next ad infinitum will not address or solve the root cause of illegal immigration?

CIR is an insult to the 11.2 million undocumented who accept a bribe of a possibility of US citizenship for 13 years of labor peonage. 

CIR is an insult to the undocumenteds' home friends and families who will be left with the same or increasingly worse conditions and choices that you (the current 11.2 million undocumented) had before you came to the US.

CIR is an insult to the many Americans who will lose high tech jobs to foreigners who will be granted (thanks to CIR) an increased number of  H-1b visas.

CIR is an insult to the many Americans who suffer the undocumented consequences of over- crowded hospital emergency rooms, losses of jobs, and unfair demographic changes to their home towns. 

CIR is unfair to everyone except those who profit from it.  Yet greedy people from the top to the bottom will demand this CIR despite its inherent or planned incapability to solve illegal immigration.
Will CIR give America's farmers the laborers they need to harvest their crops?  Time will tell.  Yet if the past is any indication of what will happen now, this temporary work visa idea will die on the vine too.  Why?  Because the big-Agri complex makes more money off of illegal workers than legal ones.

CIR will also be known as "I got mine so the hell with the rest of you".
