Outsourcing domestic policy

Senate committee defeats amendment for border security before amnesty for illegal immigrants. Let me be blunt - if we don’t control the border, why in the world does it matter what else is in our immigration policy? Every other nation on the planet secures its borders, what makes it so immoral for us to do the same? I understand with a TranZi would oppose border control, but it’s stunning that GOP Senators would, even though it’s not a popular stance.

What drives my objection to large scale immigration isn’t really the immigrants but out own oikophobes who do all they can to prevent assimilation. We can see how this worked out in Boston, where the bombers had no American friends and despised the USA even while living off American largesse. Why shouldn’t immigrants acquire that attitude if we will pay them while telling them how lucky we are they are here? Or telling them it can be racist to be pro-American or that our own national history is unimportant or our dominant religions are extremism.

We could easily eliminate illegal immigration nearly overnight. The technology and tools have been created (an instant social-security # check).

It’s not enforced because it would double fresh food prices overnight and eliminate billions of dollars of agriculture GDP. That’s not to mention substantial increased costs in construction and hospitality.

Immigration policy stills matters because keeping them illegal allows the option of sending them home at some later point in time when things are more automated.

I’m not saying this approach is right, either morally or legally. I’m just telling what it looks like from my experience working with many growers.

Bret;

I don’t think there is any realistic possibility of deporting illegal immigrants. The Democratic Party objects to deporting ones who have been convicted of a felony while here. A general deportation simply won’t happen.

They won’t deport them, they’ll just make it extremely difficult for them to get a job so most of the industrious ones will leave. Thus we will have indirectly be “sending them home”.
