When Immigration Reform Transforms Into Immigration Revolution

When Immigration Reform Transforms Into Immigration Revolution

I wonder if Mr. Gutierrez will say "conflict is part of the fun" when immigration reform transforms into immigration revolution?

Washington's Comprehensive Immigration Reform is a convoluted attempt for the major "players" to game theystem for their own self-serving interests

Washington politicians try to sway the Latino vote.  The undocumented want U.S. citizenship albeit in exchange for thirteen years of labor peonage.  U.S. Technology corporations want cheaper foreign workers via increased foreign workers' visas.  Washington's cronies of the U.S. Border Security Industrial Complex want those never-ending, highly lucrative government defense contracts.  Privatized prisons corporations want that continued turn-over of "customers" for their "hotels".  Of course the undocumenteds' home elite want to keep those billion dollars in annual remittances coming back to their homes.  Mega U.S. corporations (agriculture, hotel/motel, construction) who profit off of undocumented labor have much to continually gain by retaining the status quo.

At the bottom of the pecking order in the U.S. are the citizens who will continue to suffer over crowded hospital emergency rooms, losses of jobs, increased taxes, and the unfair demographic changes to their home towns.

At the bottom of the pecking order in the undocumenteds' home countries will be their poor who will be coerced into crossing into the U.S. too.  Some will lose their lives in the process yet what will remain unchanged will be that which causes them to continue to try:  home-country poverty.

You see none of these Washington reforms will address home-country poverty as the cause of illegal immigration.  Not because Washington can't do anything about it.  On the contrary - Washington is invested in the never ending cycle:  profit-driven poverty creating profit-driven illegal immigration creating the need to "reform" the system to make more profit for all concerned.

We do not need immigration reform we need an immigration revolution.  We need it in the undocumenteds' home country and in the U.S. too.

We need a revolution to force the greedy elite who run this insidious system to end their home-country profit driven poverty.
