How to fix Immigration

Immigration will never be fixed because politicians do not have the will power. Business wants cheap labor and Democrats want new voters and screw the wishes of the American people.

Illegal immigants do not help the economy unless they are running a business. The cost of educating children of illegal immigrants alone would justify the cost of a plane ticket back to whatever country. They also depress the wages of the least skilled jobs. Employers readily mistreat illegals and this mistreatment then filters down to legal workers. I have worked for employers who openly refuse to even condsider blacks because " they steal and sue. " Every group has potential theives and the racial lawsuit industry does make some employers leery.

The notion of family based immigration should end. The notion that a persons brother or child is the best candidate is outmoded. The paperwork of many countries is so fraudulent and haphazzard that even in this area blood tests should be required.

Immigration fraud also needs to be more vigourously prosecuted including jail time and loss of citizenship for sham marriages. Adoptions should pay a greater fee for the amount of extra work required. An adoption requires the person do about at least eight times the amount of work. Adoptions require investigations of foriegn law and the examination of multiples of paperwork. The fee should start at 1000 and should require at least a paralegal representation. The lawyers in the adoption cases earn every penny and provide a critical service.

The country should move to a strictly vocational immigration system. Countries with historic US interests such as Liberia, Haiti, Philipinnes, Poland should get the majority of the spots. What historic ties does the US have to Ghana or Bangladesh ?
India and China are trade partners and should also get some slots.

The country should end the practice of granting citizenship to the parents of people who have children in the USA. Woman x from country y has a child in the USA 21 years later she gets a visa. Then all of her children become eligible down the road.

I am off to NYC and will be on the road.

Mr Beamish in 08, Ducky to be roasted ????? and 167 changing formats and names yet again.

I am considering roasting the Duck next Friday. We tend to do this anyway but this
would be more comedy based. I would like the opinions of regular posters . This blog does have some readers off the beaten path who are encouraged to express their opinions.

Should we roast the Duck ?

smoked duck is much better, but it's your party.

as for the illegal immigration issue - i think the finger was pulled from the dike a very long time ago. i don't know if it can be fixed or if the u.s. has the intestinal fortitude to carry any good ideas through. i have my own solutions, but mine would only stop future illegals. the illegals who are here, are here to stay. as the borders are tightened - they will need coyotes to get them back IN to mexico.

American Crusader said...

I've heard estimates that despite cheap labor, every illegal immigrant cost United States approximately $500 last year...education, medical bills and social services.

Robert Bayn said...

Should point out, Latino (mexican's) tend to vote about 50-50 Democrat/Republican.

Wages are low not because of Illegal Immigrants but because a republican controlled house has not increased minimum wage since 1997. The truth is many illegal immigrants have what we in American use to have "the american working spirit", today we are a bunch of lazy arrogany people, who think we are to good for certain jobs, but when Illegals get the job, we claim they are taking our jobs, when their not.

Protecting our borders is important, enforcing current laws is important, but the way some act about this entire situation, it seems to be more about race, than our borders, because i don't hear much out cry about the illegal immigrants coming in from other countries (which there is a lot of), the focus is on Mexico, which only leads us to one option, Racism. Besides, its your boy Hannity with is advocating that people from Cuba get to come in to America, you know Cuba that place that majority of our illegal Drugs come from. Bottomline this is a attack on Mexico, not a way protect our borders, as usual the racist bigots of this country, hide behind there cloak of "protecting the country", rather than say how they really feel, not that you or anyone else here is a bigot or a racist, but this entire situation seems to be more about race than it is our borders, in Washington and elsewhere.

tmw - i am not contrary!

and bless you.

"Business wants cheap labor and Democrats want new voters and screw the wishes of the American people."

Note how Beak manages to exclude both "business" and Democrats from the set of "the American people".

Very sloppy, Beak. Shape up.

nanc said...

robert said the majority of our illegal drugs come from cuba - i want to know where to find this information.

next we'll have to figure out how to keep those pesky canadians out, eh, beak?

Immigration is a simple issue. No entry for Muslims. Increase the legal entry quota for others--including Mexicans (even if they do vote Democratic at first.) Tax illegals at an extra 20% of income (for jumping the line) and use that money to build a secure barrier at the Mexican border. Deport illegals who don’t pay taxes.

Peking Duck is preferable to Roost Duck.

How about duck l'orange?

Robert Bayn, I think you write on point. Now shut up and get back to picking those strawberries.

Robert Bayn said..."Cuba that place that majority of our illegal Drugs come from"

Robert, if you're going to make statements like this or that our border policy is based on racism that I seriously suggest doing just a little homework.
By far the most drugs coming into America come through the Mexican border. From South America into Mexico and then across the border.
The DEA and the Coast Guard heavily patrol the waters between Cuba and United States, not only looking for drugs but for Cuban refugees.

Beak,
Yes, roast the Duck. I'm terrible at one liners on paper (on monitor?), but my husband might provide me a few barbs.

Robert Bayn said...

Reports show that most drugs come through Florida, which means they pass through Cuba, it still does not change the point that Hannity is advocating for one form of Illegal Immigration, but denying another.

Always On Watch said...

Beak,
I like all of this post, but the second paragraph is particularly good.

bum from jersey said...

Money wise, i think imigration rights would benefit most people rather than hurt them. Just say for instance, you had to pay the immigrant at least minimum wage to work a job. If that is now the law, many business owners would probably higher fewer immigrants and more citizens because they would have to pay the same price for citizens as they do for immigrants without the hassle of working with immigrants. So financially, I think immigration rights would benefit many rather than hurt (and lets remember - most people in this country are not middle class or above, so minimum wage while low, would be satisfactory for many Americans).

Justin said...

"Reports show that most drugs come through Florida which means they pass through Cuba. That is a rather Racist, Bigoted statement just because Cuba is 90 miles off the coast. Of course you cant blame Mexico, Central America, or any other South American Country which all have easy access to Florida.

There is a difference between Political Asylum and Illegal Immigration. One comes here to escape Political Oppression, the other comes here Illegally to work.

I wish some one would explain to me how people say we should ignore one law and not all laws!

Warren said...

Robert, sometimes I doubt your sanity!

Could it be that there are some 11 mil illegal Mexicans in the country?

I would be willing o bet that the combined total of illegals other than Mexicans is less than 2% of that.

We simply cannot afford that level of immigration, legal or illegal.

That 11 mil represents some 40% of the Mexican workforce.

Your casual charges of racism are despicable and the last resort of a liberal that has lost the intellectual battle.

Get real.

Justin said...

Warren:

The Illegal Mexicans outnumber any other group by a margin of 10 to 1.
They make up a total of 5% of the US labor force.

Liberals cant face the fact that these people do not respect this country or its laws.

South-central Arizona is the busiest migrant-smuggling area, and detentions by the U.S. Border Patrol there are up more than 26 percent this fiscal year — 105,803 since Oct. 1, compared with 78,024 for the same period a year ago. Along the entire border, arrests are up 9 percent.

Maria Valencia, a spokeswoman for U.S. Customs and Border Protection, said the rise in detentions did not necessarily mean more people were crossing. She attributed at least some of the additional arrests to an increase in the number of Border Patrol agents.

“We’ve sent more technology and agents there, and I think that’s had an impact,” she said.

But Loureiro, who has managed the shelter for 24 years, said the debate in Congress has triggered a surge in migrants. In March, 2,000 migrants stayed at the shelter — 500 more than last year.

Many migrants said they were being encouraged to come now by relatives living in the United States.

This time, the draw is a bill before the U.S. Senate that could legalize some of the 11 million people now illegally in the United States while tightening border security. Migrants are hurrying to cross over in time to qualify for a possible guest-worker program — and before the journey becomes even harder.

I must be resonating with the people. I've always advocated an "Annex Mexico" policy. With 81 stars on our flag, we could start arranging them into letters. "Who's next?" would look phat spelled out on the US flag.

Warren said...

Thank You Justin,
The 40% represents a portion of the total Mexican workforce, not as a percentage of the American workforce but as a total of Mexico"s workforce. I just heard the number today and haven't had time to check it out.

From the CIA factbook:

major drug-producing nation; cultivation of opium poppy in 2004 amounted to 3,500 hectares, but opium cultivation stayed within the range - between 3,500 and 5,500 hectares - observed in nine of the last 12 years; potential production of 9 metric tons of pure heroin, or 23 metric tons of "black tar" heroin, the dominant form of Mexican heroin in the western United States; marijuana cultivation decreased 23% to 5,800 hectares in 2004 after decade-high cultivation peak in 2003; potential production of 10,400 metric tons of marijuana in 2004; government conducts the largest independent illicit-crop eradication program in the world; major supplier of heroin and largest foreign supplier of marijuana and methamphetamine to the US market; continues as the primary transshipment country for US-bound cocaine from South America, accounting for about 90% of estimated annual cocaine movement to the US; major drug syndicates control majority of drug trafficking throughout the country; producer and distributor of ecstasy; significant money-laundering center

And our border leaks like a sieve

Don't doubt it, there is none!

Than again Sanity is not something that there seems to be a high dosage of, on the "net".

American Crusader said...

"Reports show that most drugs come through Florida, which means they pass through Cuba"

Don't be stupid, most drugs come through Mexico and then up through Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California.

I bet you cannot find one of these so-called "reports".

Robert Bayn said...

I just read one yesterday. But your welcome to beleive what you want to, though that still has little to do with what Hannity is doing.
