Snarky political thought of the day

Now that the president has signed the border fence bill (which remains unfunded), now we need to decide just what kind of protection we want to build. Mexico, to no one's great surprise, is protesting the very notion of us keeping out those who want to come here from there without being bothered with legal niceties and trifles.

I think there is a lot we can learn from Mexico, and we really ought to listen to them.

We can start by sending a fact-finding delegation to inspect Mexico's own southern border, and see if we can learn anything from them.

You guys just don't get it.... (Below threshold)

You guys just don't get it. The fence means nothing. The Corporatist who own the current crop of politicians aren't gonna allow a fence to stop their inflow of cheap labor. The fence is just a bone tossed to the masses along with the abortion bone, the gay marriage bone ect... meant to keep the tools in shape.

The only way to end illegal immigration is to throw in jail CEO's who hire them and fine their companies severely.

It's not the corporatist that will stop it muirgeo, it's the left wing socialist Democrats who have to get citizens of another country to vote for them illegally in the US elections. That's the real reason they've supported allowing illgeal aliens to get drivers licences--and register to vote without having to show any sort of ID.

Stopping illegal immigration is not all that difficult in concept to do, if we have the desire to do it.
1-build the wall along the entire US/Mexico border.
2-ban banks and bank like institutions from opening accounts or making money transfers from illegals.
3-sanction employers who willingly and knowingly hire illegals.
4-deny any benefits to and deny any possibility of ever becoming a US citizen.
5-deny all federal funding to any state and local government as well as the tax deductibility of their taxes against federal income taxes for those entities that have sanctuary or don't ask policies with respect to illegal immigrants or non cooperation policies with respect to illegals with the federal government.

These five steps will discourage illegal immigration and make the ones here rethink staying here. They are harsh measures to be sure and as an immigrant (legal) I can't honestly say my heart is with these measures, but they would be quite effective. Being a sovereign entity, every national government has the right to decide which immigrants and visitors can arrive and which can stay and the conditions it will accept foreigners.

Mexico has clear limits on who can immigrate, on land ownership by foreigners and citizenship eligibility. Jordan does not allow Jews to own land there. One can disagree with their laws and policies, but not their right to have their laws and policies. The US is a sovereign nation and it can set it's immigration laws and policies in accordance to it's constitution.

In this case, Patience is a Virtue.

Mexico recently legalized the use of recreational marijuana. Once Mexico realizes that they are losing people who want to work and gaining people who want to get stoned, they will build the fence. Then we can object cause our stoners need a place to go.

Further, a fence of this magnitude will require Brasero Labor for construction. (fence building is not a job I want to do) Might as well let the Mexican government pay their wages.

Its the combination of the two.

And the media is both leftist and corporatist.
Same thing.

epador:

M: Funny, most of the "big cat" CEO's hiring undocumented folks around here are small business owners and contractors. Throw them all in jail and our local economy, at least the legal one for what its worth, goes "south." Except for the big chain stores and service folks who are more careful. Great economic decision on your part. Glad you're not King of the People's Republic of Portland.
