Invoking precedent to solve the immigration question
- (Unexpected - and chilling - candor from from the Christian Right on how to
solve the immigration question. SR)
Against a fence
Dear Jorge plans to address the nation tonight, a speech wherein he will
almost surely attempt to deceive citizens into believing that he does not
wish the mass migration from Mexico to continue unabated. He will likely
offer some negligible resources for law enforcement and border security -
resources which will never materialize - in return for an amnesty program
that will grant American citizenship to the Mexican nationals who have
helped lower America's wage rates by 16 percent over the last 32 years.
And he will be lying, again, just as he lied when he said: "Massive
deportation of the people here is unrealistic - it's just not going to
Not only will it work, but one can easily estimate how long it would take.
If it took the Germans less than four years to rid themselves of 6 million
Jews, many of whom spoke German and were fully integrated into German
society, it couldn't possibly take more than eight years to deport 12
million illegal aliens, many of whom don't speak English and are not
integrated into American society.
In fact, the hysterical response to the post-rally enforcement rumors tends
to indicate that the mere announcement of a massive deportation program
would probably cause a third of that 12 million to depart for points south
within a week.
The complete absurdity of stating that enforcement of the national
immigration laws is unrealistic, while simultaneously insisting that
reshaping the entire Dar-al Islam to the liking of the World Demokratic
Revolutionists is perfectly feasible, should be obvious. Dear Jorge's
deceits are not only transparent, they are downright insulting to anyone
capable of considering two concepts at the same time.
Unlike the Libertarian Party, I do not subscribe to a two-way open-borders
policy, for reasons I explained previously. I do, however, believe that the
chief hallmark of a free society is the freedom to leave it, as evidenced by
the "no exit" policies so often adopted by socialist and other totalitarian
The problem with a fence is that it works both ways. As it stands today, the
only government agency that objects to an American leaving the country is
the Internal Revenue Service, which weirdly attempts to claim income tax for
up to 10 years after an American leaves the country and his citizenship
behind. This is mostly because apart from the farsighted Fred Reed, few
Americans now wish to leave what is still a wealthy and relatively free
But that may not always be the case, especially given the increasing
probability that the Lizard Queen will be squatting on the Cherry Blossom
Throne three years from now. And a government that believes the importation
of low-skill, low-income Mexicans is necessary is not one that is likely to
smile benevolently upon the departure of high-skill, high-income Americans.
Dialectic has long been the political elite's favored means of manipulating
public opinion. They push and the people pull. Action-reaction-synthesis. In
this case, the action is government-abetted illegal immigration, the
reaction is the massive outcry for a fence and the synthesis is a
A fence is not necessary, for there are other means of efficiently resolving
the problem without resorting to such an obviously dangerous measure.
Instant deportation policies, employer fines and bounty programs combined
with the denial of all social services to non-citizens would suffice to
settle the matter without the need to imprison the American citizenry. As
the Minutemen have proven, again, unleashing the power of motivated private
citizens is far more efficient than relying on government bureaucrats.
