Washington's Immigration Reform Is As Corrupt As It Is Inhumane

Washington's Immigration Reform Is As Corrupt As It Is Inhumane

Now wait a minute!  Doesn't the Senate's S. 744: Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act attempt to bring 11.2 million undocumented "out of the shadows"?

Sure it does, but at what cost?  They are taken out of the shadows and given this new sub-class of labor peonage status known as Registered Provisional Immigrants.  Heavy emphasis on the adjective "provisional" which means "arranged or existing for the present, possibly to be changed later".

Here it is again:  Washington's profitable band aide approach to avoiding the real cause of illegal immigration. 

Read the fine print. Sure the undocumented's provisional statuses might be changed if all of S.744's caveats are met i.e. 90% border effectiveness rates, border security strategies, fencing, and don't forget the $46,300,000,000 enforcement start up fees, and an additional $50,000,000 for John McCain's Tucson Sector/Operation Streamline and $50,000,000 for FEMA's "Operation Stonegarden". 

When and if all of their profit making plans are said and done, maybe just maybe after 10 more years of labor peonage those 11.2 million may have a shot at getting green cards, and 3 more years later US citizenship.

With such a humane deal like that who wouldn't come running "out of the shadows"? 

This is Washington's border security industrial complex's corruption at its finest. 

First of all, 20 years of Washington's own NAFTA has caused the largest influx of undocumented to the US on record.

Meanwhile the elite in Mexico and the US share some 1.25 billion dollars a day in cross border trade.  I guess there isn't much "trickle down" economics happening in Mexico either.

Sure the border is more secure and we have had record deportations.  Neither of those have proven to be effective in stopping illegal immigration but someone is surely getting rich trying.

Why does Washington refuse to address (Mexican) poverty as the root cause of "our" illegal immigration?  Are they afraid to upset their corrupt Mexican NAFTA trading partners?  Or are they simply not interested in stopping their own profitized system of illegal immigration/reform?

I did the math correct this time.  Reagan's 1986 Amnesty:  2.7 million undocumented initially cost the US taxpayers some 900 million dollars.  See Section 111 Pub. L 99-603 Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986:

Divide $900,000,000 by 2,700,000 (undocumented people legalized) and "we" got $333 per undocumented person.

Fast forward to Washington's "Reform" attempt today S. 744: Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act and go to Section 6 for the initial taxpayer funding of $46,300,000,000.

Divide $46,300,000,000 by 11,200,000 (undocumented people) and "we" get $4,134 per undocumented person.

A mere increase of 1,240%  in tax payers' "border security" monies being funneled into Washington's crony immigration enforcement industrial complex that as yet has never proven to be an effective fix to illegal immigration.

Do you wonder why?  Think of the other 40+ year long trillion dollar scam that also does not work:  The US War on Drugs.

Beyond the insidious, profit-driven illegal immigration rape of the undocumented and the insidious, proven-driven, illegal-immigration rape of US taxpayers are the deaths and suffering caused to the good citizens of the undocumenteds' home countries and the good citizens' of America. 

All of the present immigration reform activists' discussions focus upon the problems the current undocumented suffer from this corrupt and inhumane system.  Yet do they care about the millions more of undocumented who will without a doubt follow in today's undocumenteds' footsteps?  How about those who will die crossing the border, or those who will suffer from the same poverty that pushes all undocumented people here?  Why do these activists only care about their "immigration reform" and not the poverty that is the continual root cause of the entire problem?  Where are their protests about how Washington's NAFTA exacerbates poverty and illegal immigration?

What about the suffering caused to US citizens?  Anyone who thinks that some amount of serious crimes are not committed against US citizens by a small portion of the undocumented is wrong.  

Beyond that, how about the over-crowded, over-burdened medical and school systems, losses of jobs, and yes - rapid, unfair demographic changes to many of their home towns.
