We are all proud of the Statue of Liberty, even if it was given to us by the French. The words about ‘your tired and huddled masses’ did not mean to include your criminals, murderers, terrorists, drug dealers and the sort. Its 2007 and I have had my fill of the illegal immigration issue.
I would temporarily hire thousands to hold a country-wide roundup. Ship them all back to their homelands along with an invoice for the cost of finding them, transporting them and housing and feeding them. I would then have our military patrol our borders with the shoot to kill order. This would send a message we mean business.
I would overhaul the immigration department and make reasonable rules and regulations for the proper method to enter our country. There would be yearly limits and limits per country, to be fair to all.
Since I do not see this suggestion ever happening, I have another solution to the Mexican illegal situation.
Send our military into Mexico and kick all their corrupt politicians, police and drug dealers out of the country. Adopt Mexico as part of the US and divide it up into a number of states, so it can live and operate with all the laws and personal rights as Americans. That country would become so prosperous, so quickly, the people would never want to return to the old ways of corruption.
It wouldn’t take long before the rest of South America would want to jump on the bandwagon and live the life of luxury. At some point in time, it would all become the United States of America and our borders would all be waterways, and easier to defend.
It would be great to see all these other countries become self -sufficent, proud, upstanding and free. They could become our best citizens. Loyal and patriotic.
Okay, silly me, but a person can dream, can’t they?
