Washington's Immigration Reform Lie: Border Fences And Drones In The Sky Won't Stop Poverty-Produced Illegal Immigration

In response:

Washington's Immigration Reform Lie:  Border Fences And Drones In The Sky Won't Stop Poverty-Produced Illegal Immigration

Yes.  We are being lied to.   In the case of our neighbor Mexico - how can Washington pretend to   reform immigration without discussing the horrendous Mexican poverty as the cause of their illegal immigration? 

We have somehow become disconnected from the simple truth of our hearts that could and should guide us about the ugly bottom-line reality of illegal immigration.

The crux of Washington's Comprehensive Immigration reform initially pours $46,300,000,000 into "border security" while giving 11.2 million undocumented people Registered Provisional Immigrant (RPI) status exchanging 13 years of labor for the possibility of US citizenship.  Check out  S. 744: Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act, especially Title II Immigrant Visas, and Section 6 Comprehensive Immigration Reform Funds:  Read through the entirety of S.744 - not one word about poverty being the cause of illegal immigration.  

Poverty is a social disease caused by the greed of the elite who control government economics. In the cause of Mexico, the US pushed NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) simultaneously exacerbated Mexican poverty and the largest influx of undocumented into the US on record.

Why in God's name are they not discussing poverty?  Look at our US Department of State's description of the relations of the US and Mexico.
Lots of lofty rhetoric about the economic and border security relations.  Nothing about poverty- produced illegal immigration. 

Read this White House press release "Remarks by Vice President Joe Biden at the U.S.-Mexico High Level Economic Dialogue" made on September 20, 2013.  Lots of lofty rhetoric about the economic and social futures of the two countries - nothing about poverty- produced illegal immigration.

Lots and lots of propaganda about bi-national prosperity and how to stop illegal immigration.  Billions of US tax dollars necessary to achieve border security and nothing said about the root cause of undocumented people coming here.  

We are being sold a lie.  We pour billions upon billions of dollars into stopping illegal immigration while refusing to address poverty as a possible cure.  This would be comparable to America pouring billions upon billons of dollars to fight cancer while refusing to address an obvious cure.

As if building border fences and putting drones in the sky can stop poverty-driven people.

They profit from those poverty-driven undocumented laborers who they help create. They then profit from their ensuing self-created immigration reform and gouging of US taxpayers for billions in their "designed to be ineffective"  border and interior enforcement.

They re-create the conditions that cause the suffering of the undocumented and US taxpayers alike - all in the name of greed and their insidious immigration reform lies.
