Washington Shoots America In The (Illegal Immigration) Foot And Then Wants "Reform"

In response:

Washington Shoots America In The (Illegal Immigration) Foot And Then Wants "Reform"

Or put another way, why does Washington refuse to address its own culpability in creating the root cause of illegal immigration and its resulting "immigration reform"? 

Noam Chomsky, The Common Good, page 43. 

"The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum - even encourage the more critical and dissident views. That gives people the sense that there's free thinking going on, while all the time the presuppositions of the system are being reinforced by the limits put on the range of the debate."

Mr. Chomsky's quote directly applies to Washington's illegal immigration and immigration reform debate policies and political debate.  The majority of Americans only take into account  Washington's spoon-fed solutions to illegal immigration via immigration reform:  46.3 billion more "border security" tax dollars coupled with "amnesty, normalization, Registered Provisional Immigrant status etc. for 11.2 million undocumented people."  See Sections 6 and 2101 of the Senate's previously passed S. 744: Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act AKA "Comprehensive Immigration Reform".    

Where is the Washington (or better yet, mainstream American) debate addressing how NAFTA actually exacerbated and exacerbates the disparity in wealth and poverty in the undocumenteds' home countries resulting in exacerbated illegal immigration to the US?

Our own government shoots us in the illegal immigration foot and then offers "immigration reform" that will indisputably cause more illegal immigration and will undeniably require yet another "amnesty"? 

The border deaths of the undocumented to come will be on the hands of all who support "immigration reform" that does not address Washington's and the undocumenteds' home-country elite's creation of poverty as the root cause of illegal immigration.
