Immigration Bill Debated
For those of you who care more about Anna Nicole Smith, Lindsey Lohan, and Paris Hilton than the wellbeing of the greatest country God ever gave man (and the country you happen to live in) there is a proposal in both houses of congress for “comprehensive immigration reform”…whatever that means.
I actually like the bill and hope it passes, however the bill itself is not my largest concern.
My beef comes from immigration itself. Personally, I don’t think enough questions are being asked regarding the immigration issue.
It seems like everyone and their mom is hung up on the idea that immigration made America great and is part of a long tradition we have, therefore, we need to continue it.
In my not-so-humble opinion, both of those statements are fallacious.
Immigration occurs in every country around the world. Some could argue as much or more so than the immigration that has taken place in the US. Yet, no other country is as prosperous as our own. The fact is that our economic prosperity brings in more immigration – not the other way around. The true source of our prosperity comes from a lack of government intervention in the individuals life.
Of course illegal immigrant butt lovers (an industry term) would have you think otherwise. It seems as if they think our economy would tank were it not for illegals.
It is one thing to think that immigration is what made America great. A lot of people have that view and it may be more debatable than I let on in the couple previous paragraphs. However, the idea that we should allow immigration to continue just because it worked in the past is completely devoid of reasoning.
What makes it worse is that many of those who want to continue the mass migration we have seen the past few years don’t seem to want to answer questions about how our policy should shift to keep up with the times.
What am I talking about you ask?
In the 1800s, no real skills were needed for most jobs. Therefore, the “give me your tired and huddled masses” theory worked. Any Joe Shmoe who was willing to work his ass off could succeed. Those days are gone, and we must adapt.
In general, you need an education to get a good job in today's world. In other words, we don’t need Joe Shmoes anymore. Sorry. Today America has a science deficit. Logically, you would think the politicians could put 2 and 2 together and bring in more immigrants with science degrees to make up for our domestic deficit.
Unfortunately, this concept seems to have escaped most politicians. They act as if more landscapers and janitors are going to drive the future of our economy. They won't.
Congratulations retards, you have allowed America to take one small step for Mexico, and one giant leap in the wrong direction. In an age where we need serious professionals, we have imported a population that has a disproportionate disposition for criminal activity, lacks a pride and commitment to education, and one with no allegiance to America.
Sorry to sound pessimistic, but when I see 45 million Hispanics that wave American flags, speak English, and have jobs that require more than eight years in school, then I will become a believer.
Until then, I have to say that the solution to the current problem is to pass the current bill being debated in both houses of congress, then completely cut off immigration to America from the western hemisphere.
Part of the problem with their assimilation is that they can get up, go to work, have fun, and go home again without seeing more than a handful of passersby that speak English. No one will assimilate in a situation like that. It isn’t human nature.
