In the fantasy-land of the faux-enlightened, the tinctured brine of ain’t-it-oh-so -fashionable poli-speak returns to the immigration quandary for its next binge. This is not a tend-your-fellow-man issue. The fact remains that if you’re here in the U.S. the question is no longer a point of entry or whether there’s room. It’s a question of economic-infrastructure and integration; it is also an issue of scale/scope.
Setting aside the current $17.3 Trillion and growing deficits there is a far greater burden that no one seems to consider; unfunded liabilities now push nearer to the $200 Trillion mark. The argument that making “legal” will push tax revenues ignores the fact that even at full tax compliance the annual cost attributed to the population over-burden will still exceed $200 Billion per year and that number is growing.
The self-fulfilling prophecy of seeding your next political-block may be working for the political-class however the price of this perverse ideology has a multiplicity of costs that runs counter to reason and further fouls the host. Bloating the obese simply makes the unmanageable unimaginable in its proportions.
The following are a select group of responses to questions/comments received after the original article was published. We believe you find them of interest.
#1: Solution? First we must decide if there is such a thing as “rule of law” and if so then before any legislative action is taken existing Law must be enforced. At present, all that is understood by non-Americans (citizens) both in and outside of the U.S. is that this country disregards its own laws and selectively enforces whatever remains.
All we are doing is propagating indifference to and disregard for our own culture. We also need to resolve the wholesale abuse of the 14th Amendment (“anchor baby”); yet another example of how we ignore and abuse our own system.
How and why we justify/tolerate relegating compliance with the U.S. Constitution to Supreme Court, no more capable or competent than a bag of “Double-Stuffed Oreo Cookies”, remains one of the nation’s most enduring forms of self-abuse. Until we reconcile ourselves with these issues any politically-induced legislation or executive action will merely be a prelude to those that will inevitably follow.
