The issue of illegal immigration comes down to this:
Is the United States allowed to control it's borders ?
If you answered 'Yes' to this question, you have mastered the obvious. Congratulations. Nowadays, that almost seems like an accomplishment. After all, our elite Ivy League universities allow repressive genocidal Islamofascist neo-nazis access to their microphones so our bright young minds can be exposed to 'free speech', so the obvious isn't as obvious as it used to be. It reminds me of that old saying, 'keep an open mind, but don't open it so wide that your brain falls out'.
If you answered 'No' to the question, you are either a fool, an illegal alien, or possibly a Columbia faculty member, so nobody cares what you think. The obvious continues to elude you.
If we don't have the right to control our borders, we are not even a country. Forget about sovereignty. Forget about the Constitution. They become meaningless words on meaningless pieces of paper. On the plus side, as if this could possibly be a plus, without a country, there is no reason to pay your taxes anymore, since we will all be living in a real life version of the movie Mad Max. Welcome to the Thunderdome.
So, assuming we can agree that the USA has a right to control it's borders, let's ask, THEN WHY DON'T WE ?
One reason is that aforementioned fools, who go by the name LIBERALS in the political world, have turned the issue on it's ear. They say that if we control our Mexican border, we are being racist, because Mexicans are from Mexico, you know, and they have brown skin. This is about as dumb as dumb can be, because we have the right to control our borders regardless of who is on the other side of them, but that's what they say. I'm not making it up. It would be an interesting social experiment to see what those same liberals would say if tens of millions of Canadians were coming into our country illegally. I'm sure the libs would be very confused as to how to react to that one. They'd probably think it was a neocon conspiracy to increase the number of white people in the country.
Another argument used by some of the pro-illegal alien lobby (can you even believe there IS such a thing, much less that they are taken seriously ?) is that 'the illegals do the jobs americans don't want to do'. Now, THERE is some racism for you. It's like saying the Mexicans are SUPPOSED to be our servants and our underlings. Some diversity that is. "Look Juan, I fought for your right to pick my fruit for 4 bucks a day !". Pick THIS, gringo.
So, it's the right of the USA to control it's borders, it's not racist to control the borders, and it's morally wrong to create a permanent underclass of semi-slaves to do our dirty work for us under the table.
So, what DO we do ? Have endless congressional discussions about it ? Propose a bunch of new legislation ?
Nope. We only need to do TWO things.
One: Enforce the laws already on the books. In 1986, we passed an immigration control act, but we didn't enforce it. So, the estimated 2.7 million illegals that were here then have grown to between 12-21 million. Nobody knows for sure. At this rate, it won't be long until there are 50 million illegals or more. That is what the failure to enforce the laws has done. Proposing amnesty, which some favor, isn't worth a darn until the flow of illegals is shut off, or at least slowed drastically. You can't fix an overflowing sink while the faucet is still running. The longer we wait, the harder this gets.
Two: Make Mexico stop the flow from their side. We have considerable economic influence with Mexico. They will do something about it if we make them. If we don't, they will continue to export their problems to this country.
