Washington's Immigration Reform Is A Charade

In response:

Washington's Immigration Reform Is A Charade

If love for fellow human beings was the true driving force behind these politicians' immigration reform intentions they would be addressing Washington's own complicity in creating poverty in the undocumenteds' home countries as the root cause of illegal immigration.

Immigration reform is a charade that is pitched to US taxpayers as an effective fix for illegal immigration.  It is as if in American minds the simultaneous resetting of the 11.2 million undocumented number to zero and the US tax payer rip-off of 46.3 billion more in crony border security boodle will magically erase illegal immigration from these taxpayers' minds.    

Those magic numbers during Reagan's 1986 Amnesty were approximately 3 million undocumented and one billion border security dollars.  If Reagan's 1986 numbers jumped from 3 million to 11.2 million undocumented in 2014 and 1 billion to 46.3 billion border security dollars in 2014, what will they be 28 years from now?

The writing is on the (border) wall folks.  "Amnesty" or "immigration reform" that plays off of love and kindness without addressing poverty as the root cause of illegal immigration is an outright political lie. 

Immigration reform that does not address Washington's economic policies (NAFTA, CAFTA, TPP) as the primary exacerbating factors of illegal immigration will only prolong and increase the undocumenteds' home-country suffering, disparity in wealth, poverty, border deaths and ongoing US taxpayer consequences of  profit/labor driven illegal immigration requiring "reform" that ignores to address the root cause of both.
