The Solution to Illegal Migration Is Simple
Periodic NOVA TownHall Blog contributor The Yooper sends the following post:
The proposed solutions so far are impossible. We cannot secure all our borders and shorelines. This tide of illegals will seek to find any weak spot. New industries will spring up. It is akin to piling up sand to hold back the water of a flood. Water has the power of gravity and the resulting pressure on it's side. It will find a way through. It may be transporting illegals from the south around to Canada and across our Northern border. Making watertight borders is not the best solution.
Neither is amnesty a workable solution. Once illegals are given amnesty, or whatever antiseptic name it is given, they must pay taxes and their employers must pay FICA and benefits and all the rest. There goes the cheap labor unless we continue to allow employers to pay for any labor under the table and break the law.
And I did not even mention the unfairness to people who would attempt to immigrate legally! Those we should continue to welcome to our country as they learn English, our history and want to become Americans.
Now, the solution is to heavily fine and ultimately seize the property of those employers who are hiring illegals. Take away the attraction for illegals and the flow of illegals will cease. They might even find their own way home. After all, cheap labor will go away if they are all given guest worker cards anyway (assuming employers pay FICA, withholding, etc). And do not pay them welfare and unemployment. That is the price we must pay.
Who is against this? The liberals, who claim to hear the cries of hungry babies, the Chambers of Commerce who see cheap labor and politicians who smell votes. Oh, and the illegals will take to the streets to demand our kindness. The worst part is they may win that battle in the same manner the Muslims have won in France. It is now or later folks.
I say take the billions it would cost to build a wall and spend it on tracking down and punishing those employers that hire illegals!!!
The Yoop-meister keys in on one of the key planks in Rep. J.D. Hayworth's strategy to fix America's immigration problem. I agree that cracking down on employers would solve the problem immediately, but realistically I think that's going to take time to get through Congress.
A fence could easily be put up in the meantime. From my perspective, that would be the 'simple' solution.
