Taxpayers Pay The Price of Comprehensive Immigration Reform (CIR) - Not Washington's Millionaire Politicians

Taxpayers Pay The Price of Comprehensive Immigration Reform (CIR) - Not Washington's Millionaire Politicians

Here we go again - another US politician pushing CIR while not bothering to mention the single most blatant cause of illegal immigration to the US - the undocumenteds' home-country poverty.

(Note:  although not the topic of this comment, it is also important to highlight the millions of dollars that high tech lobbyists have poured into CIR's goal of outsourcing US jobs for foreign workers). 

Most Americans are kind and very sympathetic to the suffering of the undocumented.  Most Americans know that the majority of the undocumented are good, hard-working people simply trying to bring some level of prosperity to their lives.

AND these same Americans are also sympathetic to changes that the influx of undocumented have brought to their own hometowns.  These Americans (unlike Washington's millionaire politicians) are forced to endure the overcrowded hospital emergency rooms, school rooms, losses of jobs, and unfair demographic changes brought to their neighborhoods by the influx of the undocumented to the US.

Please tell me Rep. Wasserman-Schultz, how does your CIR protect the rights of the US taxpayers who suffer the decades-long costs and consequences of profit-driven illegal-immigration? 

I speak as a retired US Border Patrol/INS/ICE agent.  I speak as someone who has had first-hand experience of working with and arresting undocumented people crossing our border.  I speak as someone who witnessed a 20 year-old undocumented man fall to his death while running from us.  I speak as a friend of two hard-working, decent, honest co-workers who lost their lives enforcing US immigration and drug enforcement laws.

Wake up folks.  Despite all that our politicians say, illegal immigration - and all of its ramifications in the US and the undocumenteds' home-countries - is profit-driven.  It is all about money,  government-induced poverty, dispensable cheap labor, remittances sent home, billions of contract dollars to crony border security corporations, voting power, privatized immigration prisons, Mexican trade, Mexican oil, and US immigration "reform" that never effectively solves illegal immigration.

Of course none of our illustrious Washington politicians want to talk about the ongoing US-backed Mexican drug war either.  120,000 people have been slaughtered in Mexico since crony NAFTA/Drug War Mexican President Felipe Calderon started that government/military-sponsored cartel takeover and atrocity in 2006.

Common sense dictates that Washington is turning the "fight" against illegal immigration into another institutionalized profit-maker not unlike our 40+ year long failed "war" on drugs.

If Washington politicians are so concerned with the family tragedies that prompt CIR, why in God's name do they say nothing about the recent drug-war slaughter of 120,000 of our friendly neighbors in Mexico? 

Why do they remain silent about Ex-Mexican President Calderon (and his legacy of drug war corruption and blood) come to the US and serve as a Harvard fellow?

How can you Rep. Wasserman-Schultz support CIR which de facto offer bribes of US citizenship to 11.2 million undocumented in exchange for 13 years of labor peonage?

We (US taxpayers, the undocumented, and all supporters of both) all must stand against CIR.  We must force our Washington politicians to tell the truth about governmental induced poverty (NAFTA) which breeds profit-driven illegal immigration to the US which causes US taxpayers to suffer all of the US costs and consequences (not to mention the continuing border crossing deaths of the undocumented which CIR will not stop).
