Changes in Mexico impacting U.S. immigration policy

Decline in migration gives breathing room to assess current practices

What will happen to migration flows from Mexico once the recession ends and the American economy revs up again? To answer this question, we must understand a lesser-known story: how much Mexico itself has changed over the last few decades and what these changes will mean for the future.

When the America people have enough of the illegal immigration occupation, they need to speak up and use their vote as a fulcrum. The small country of Denmark hit pay dirt, by enforcing harsh immigration laws and was able save its citizens $10 billion dollars over a decade.  Denmark is hardly larger than the state of Ohio in size with all its islands, but its tough immigration laws has reduced the financial pressure on its people. So why it is with the vast resources and manpower this sovereign nation has at its grasp, yet we cannot remove these illegal workers and their large families—or decline. It’s obvious to any far-sighted taxpayer a permanent E-Verify nationwide, have this capacity to evict illegal workers. Voters must moreover stop the Justice Department from rescinding the “Secure communities” law and mandate this innovation across the country.

The TEA PARTY in Ames, Iowa and nationwide will change the disturbing route that America is going with overpopulation, crumbling infrastructure, unemployment and unrelenting immigration laws. Any state should not be a scapegoat, for the intentional or unconcerned inability, there failure of the U.S government, to ignore the people’s wishes when in comes to cutting of public entitlements to foreign nationals.

E-Verify aids in rejecting illegal foreigners stealing jobs in the workplace and Secure Communities determines by fingerprint procedures, alerting ICE to criminals and re-entries after deportations. We can start the repatriation of foreigners using these methods, with sweeping audits by ICE. Businesses should face harsh criminal charges for hiring illegal aliens, with 6 figure fines and time in prison. Congress could simplifying the whole mess inherited over thirty years, to enact illegal entry as a—FELONY—and use Alabama’s example that those without legal standing, within its State borders should also be convicted of a felony. American can no longer be passive on this out-of-control issue, as illegal immigration is causing near bankruptcy amongst the states. Currently, federal government and its states are 113 Billion dollars a year that is being extorted from taxpayers to cater to people from across the globe, as reported by The Federation of American Immigration Reform?

Incredulously open-border Democrats have turned a blind eye to aliens voting in all elections, especially that will sure to happen in 2012, when we must be on our guard as citizens. Read more about the increase in Voter Fraud across the 50 states. Charging persons with a felony would mean no more overcrowded schools, no free education for the children and the breakdown of our emergency hospitals.

With Washington under the legislators in the TEA PARTY there will be no hesitation, in enforcing the E-Verify or Secure Communities—that Homeland Security has notified they are rescinding the later law. The Tea Party will reject any form of administration amnesty, which is a link CHAIN MIGRATION. The TEA PARTY has become a massive grassroots movement of millions of concurring Americans from all racial, religious backgrounds and political parties. The TEA PARTY members share the nucleus principles of restricted government, individual freedoms, personal responsibility, fair free markets and above all else returning power to the States and the people. The TEA PARTY is about reforming all political parties and government, so the key principles of our Constitution, once again is the foundation of which this nation stands.

Hopefully the Iowa straw-poll places Rep. Michele Bachmann, the TEA PARTY chairman remains a strong presidential contender. With her strong Moderate Conservative convictions, she has refused to become part of the “old boys club” in either party. In fact the lady didn’t vote in lifting the debt ceiling by another $2.5 Trillion dollars. 2012 will be a “Make or break” year for America in doing the same thing and repeating the same mistakes. Bachmann backbone will not bend to the greed in Washington, and will not be intimidated by corporate lobbyists or the establishment. It wasn’t President Obama or the Majority of Democrats, which caused the massive problem that this country, must now face. But Sen. Harry Reid, who cut off any chance of debate in the discretionary spending when the Senate voted to “table,” a House Republican proposal to “not give the time of day” to “Cut, Cap and Balance”. Reid of Nevada has one of the largest populations of illegal household, next to the Sanctuary state of California.

I agree with the opinions presented in this guest analysis.  We do need to figure out how to bring those living in the shadows into a legal status.  The US population is aging as well.  The current brouhaha about the deficit shows that we are living beyond our means, largely because the tax base is not broad enough.

We need critically review all programs including those at the border and defund those that consume more revenue than they generate.

If we wish to follow the Danish model, we should be happy to pay a 50% tax burden.  Denmark also is suffering a severe labor shortage..which means the taxes will just go higher.
