ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION: The Carbuncle on Our National Derriere
This whole "immigration kerfuffle" has been allowed to become an issue because our inept, incompetent, and constipated federal government, since 1965, has let it fester. They stuck their heads into the sand, a la ostriches, and let this mess happen.
Imagine a tiny under-the-dermis sore spot on your butt, like a pimple, but one that is getting bigger. Well, if you are not overly modernized to the point where you can no longer think simply and appropriately, you might head to the doctor for a quick diagnosis and lots of "16 inch gun" antibiotics. Or, you might try hot water compresses which raise the local temperature in the sore above 106 degrees F, thereby killing the organisms, and not mutating your bodily flora so that you cannot treat them at some later point. Either way, the little sore goes away, and you can forget about it.
Now, how would the government handle such a sore? First, they would immediately stop looking at it, and evade thinking about it. In fact, they would pass regulations forbidding anyone else to look at the pimple or talk about it. Out of mind, out of body, right? Wrong, because the little sore progresses under such care into a boil, and it is hurting to sit down. No longer able to ignore it, the government would decide to turn the other cheek, so to speak, and call this a solution. Eventually, the boil would become a nasty, very large carbuncle, with all sorts of satellite boils, precluding sitting, standing, or finding a comfortable position anywhere in the universe. The government would now admit itself to the hospital and take itself to surgery after plying itself with very expensive antibiotics. Under anesthesia, its designees would open the carbuncle, debride it, install drains and irrigation catheters, and pack it open to heal in the slowest possible way because the healing now must come from the bottom up. I could go on to say that the silly goose government now develops necrotizing fasciitis, but that really would not add to the metaphor.
Here we are, with some 13 - 14 million ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS, by the latest estimates seen on television news, and they are DEMONSTRATING for what they call their RIGHTS, as though they are American citizens. Meanwhile very corrupt people in the Senate want to give them another round of AMNESTY, because they say, no one can deal with a problem this large. BULL S---T to all of this!
Some representative of some so-called “Council for Immigrant Rights and Social Justice,” a group trying to cash-in to grab power in one city’s “demonstrations” for today, Monday, 10 April, bleated on the radio all sorts of befogging verbiage that is typical of all of those trying to cash in. “Immigrant rights” means to them ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT RIGHTS, because to them LEGAL IMMIGRANT is the same as ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT. No, this defies logic, but like all postmoderns, these cashers-in are manipulating language to be their weapons. You can bet your bottom dollar that any time you hear the buzz phrase, “social justice,” you can be assured that you are dealing with socialists who are after you to harness to their plans. What are all of these demonstrators playing to? They are playing to the EMOTIONS of the legislators and executives in governments, from local through federal. Just look at the shift today in their tactics, from Mexican flags to American flags. Sincerity? How about opportunism and manipulation!
There is a great statement in Atlas Shrugged about James Taggart who archetypically represents most of the Senate, all of the State Department, and so many in the Executive Branch that one loses count. Confronted with anything that should make him want to summon thinking, James Taggart called on his emotions as though blowing on a fog horn, but one used to "summon the fog."
Let's make a number of things clear and contextual. First, I am concerned herein with ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS only. I am not anti-immigrant in any way. I am anti-individual only for those legal immigrants who use subterfuge to get into America with the intent on doing harm, even if they are naturalized citizens. Otherwise, I welcome LEGAL immigrants.
ILLEGAL immigrants pose huge problems, but they can be dealt with quite effectively. Indeed, the lazy, those working agendas, and all the fog-summoners think otherwise. They come up with such stuff like the hackneyed claim that these illegals do the work that Americans will not do. People like Teddy Kennedy and all that support a minimum wage are the ones that created this situation. Plenty of people will work these jobs, but too few employers can afford minimum wage for grunt work.
ILLEGAL immigrants operate beneath our proper detection and surveillance. We, the citizens of America acting as the nation of America, have delegated to the government of America the use of force in order to protect our rights as citizens. To that end, we have the Constitution of the United States. We have the right and need to know who is in our country, why, and where they are at all times.
One pie-in-the-sky, divorced-from-reality article advocating open borders recently spent considerable space going over rights, and how all men and women on earth have rights, even the illegal immigrants. True, but ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO THE PROTECTION OF THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES WHEN THEY ENTER OUR COUNTRY ILLEGALLY. That point was never addressed in the article.
We are at WAR, another fact glossed over by that article. We must know who enters our country, why, and where they are at all times. We have abundant evidence of jihadists, for example, waltzing into America with our destruction as their intentions, and our constipated government does not even know where most are. We have Muslims here on expired student visas and other expired authorizations, preaching sedition, and funneling money to HAMAS, HEZBOLLAH, etc. The Muslim Brotherhood operates with only a fig leaf for a cover. NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO BE IN AMERCA ILLEGALLY.
Those supporting the RIGHTS OF ILLEGALS go so far as to make every effort to the illegals welfare, health care, housing, food stamps, and in-state tuition if they get charged at all. How can anyone in government provide these bogus rights? Because they forcibly take money through taxation from legal Americans and redistribute it a la socialism to those who are--at a minimum--criminal, because they entered the country illegally. It is making Americans very, very sore--this watching the boil become a carbuncle.
What about a “guest worker” program? Fine, as long as there is full tracking and accountability, and the program is temporary for each worker who signs up.
What to do? Border control is number one, but that takes time. Meanwhile, start cracking down inside America, using existing laws. E.g., start in Maine, because it is the farthest from the Mexican border. CUT OFF ALL WELFARE TO ILLEGALS ABRUPTLY. Start rounding them up and deporting them. Put them in holding pens in the Nevada desert briefly until they can be deported. Do not penalize employers for their hiring illegals--that would be truly immoral, but remove ALL TAX BREAKS EMPLOYERS GET FOR THESE WORKERS.
Now then, as the word spreads, watch a growing human tsunami moving toward the southern border (and some into Canada). Let them through, to reenter Mexico, and use whatever force is required to interdict the Federales who will attempt to block the exodus. As the enforcement continues, illegals who came from south of the border will flood back south across the border from all parts of the country. A big problem will shrink progressively into a much more manageable problem. Hard core illegals won't leave, so there will still be the need to detect and deport them.
Now then again, start in Florida rounding up illegal Muslims, in the same way. Illegal Muslims will repeat just what they did after 9-11, when millions flooded into Canada, fearing detection and deportation. Just you watch all the Toweltop-and Burqa Charter Jet airlines leaving the USA full, faster than the bin Ladens and the Saudis blew out of here after 9-11. The human tsunami going south will cross the human tsunami going north. Once more, a very big problem will shrink into something much more manageable.
Under no circumstances grant amnesty. Amnesty is an egregious insult to the concept of rights, our laws, and the Constitutional system. Furthermore, amnesty is morally disgusting: It is mercy, an anti-moral concept. What is needed here is justice. Far too many people came to America the right way, and those who followed legal procedures must not be slapped in the face by giving the illegal and undeserving an unearned amnesty. Nor should we slap the face of every American by ignoring the Constitution.
Abolish the minimum wage immediately. Let wages become market determined so that all can work, and then see just who does what jobs.
There is much, much more, like abolishing all welfare, but that would take too long here.
Legal immigrants strengthen America. New legal immigrants should be identified, properly educated to the proper principles of America, and be tracked until they become full citizens. As legal immigrants, before citizenship becomes formal, they deserve full protection of their Rights of Man the same as American citizens. Few Americans would oppose. This is how you keep a pimple from becoming a carbuncle or progressing to necrotizing fasciitis.
