Yes President Obama, Immigration Reform Is All About Political Fund Raising (Billions for Latino Votes and Billions For Washington's Border Security Black Hole)

In response:

Yes President Obama, Immigration Reform Is All About Political Fund Raising (Billions for Latino Votes and Billions For Washington's Border Security Black Hole)

11.2 million undocumented potential voters (the majority of who are from Latin American countries (Mexico{60%}, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras {10% combined} who all  have slipped through the fingers of DHS and US "border security") are now being offered immigration reform's RPI status (13 years of labor peonage) in exchange for possible US citizenship.

But wait!   Said reform will authorize the spending of somewhere between 4.5 to 10 billion US taxpayer' dollars in order to "secure the border" that somehow let these 11.2 million undocumented people got past them to begin with?

Read the fine print of S.744 (The Senates Immigration bill).  There is a reason (beyond the goodness of his heart) that Mark Zuckerberg supports this.  There are also billions of reasons that our "war" against illegal immigration is now starting to look a lot (an awfully lot) like the our "war on drugs".   For those of you who do not know, the US war on drugs started over 40 years ago and the dollar price tag is over one trillion dollars.  And as with the war on illegal immigration, how can anyone know the actual toll of human suffering these "wars" cost?

I wonder if there is anyone else in the US who has profited off of the 11.2 million undocumented people working and living here?  Common sense dictates that there must be undocumented workers in the agricultural, fast food, construction and hotel-motel sectors of our economy.  By the way, do you know that the undocumented can be due paying members of the AFL/CIO and affiliate member unions without having to show proof of US citizenship, legal residency or work authorization?

God only knows that DHS (ICE) is just about as effective in fining employers who hire the undocumented as they are in effectively stopping the undocumented.

Bottom line - we are all being ripped off by Washington's self-serving immigration reform.  None of us should let them do anything until they address the undocumenteds' home country poverty as the root cause of Washington's profit-driven system of illegal immigration.
