Immigration was here first and was working fine before Government stepped in and mismanaged it.
Government should be brought to heel, and to change its dysfunctional laws. Bring back Bracero if need be.
What I don’t get, and what I know you cannot argue qixlqatl, is how you can possibly have consensus to build a wall, and not also have consensus to rewrite welfare/immigration into something functional.
If conservatives are in control, they should be able to do the latter. The latter actually solves the problem, not simply attack a symptom.
Welfare does not give the Government knowledge as to what the labor rate should be, anymore than subdizing American citizens tells it how many of our people should move between the states. Further, identifying a problem, even earnest ones you want addressed, does not make government action the solution. That’s an equivocation, and it doesn’t hold up to scrutiny.
For the actions you want, also creates problems. Problems far bigger than the ones you’ve identified.
Want to see the result of a nation not getting enough immigrants, when its native population doesn’t have a birth rate anywhere near replacement? The brain drain? The emptying of cities en mass, a la Detroit?
Want a large, intrusive police apparatus that does everything the TSA does, but is set up along every highway?
Want us to import all of our food, and all of our clothes?
No qixlqatl, I don’t think you’ve ever asked why these trends exist other than to do what the Left does and chock it up to greed. You’ve equally, never looked for what was behind the problems you were seeing.
That thing being, bad laws.
When immigration is administered by good laws, its benefits maximize. People follow those laws, equilibrium is established, and illegal immigration is a foot note.
But when bad laws disrupt immigration, that is the Government declaring war on the economy, and when that happens, nobody wins. Not the law, not the immigrant, not natural rights, and certainly not the citizen or the economy they live in.
As it stands, illegal immigration is a bad solution, to an even worse problem that will spiral out of control if we try anything else. Until government fixes itself, fixes the error it made 50 years ago, we’ll keep getting more of it.
