The Inherent Discrimination of our Current Immigration Policies

The Inherent Discrimination of our Current Immigration Policies
Our current immigration polities are discriminating against Asians, Europeans, Africans, South Americans, Canadian, Australia, New Zealand, Pacific Islanders and Middle Easterners. The lack of enforcement of existing laws already on the books is favoring the Mexicans as they are the vast majority of illegal aliens are from that country. It is not fair that the law abiding immigrants from all the other countries are not allowed in to this country while the illegal aliens are allowed in vast numbers.

With over 10 million undocumented immigrants in the US (as of 2009), the issue of illegal immigration is unsustainable and must be addressed. Let's not make the amnesty mistake again! The correct terminology for the nearly 20 million persons illegally in the U.S. is illegal aliens,the term illegal alien, being broader in scope, is the accurate term to use. In that immigrant connotes legality, the term illegal immigrant is really an oxymoron. 
"Do not grant amnesty to illegal aliens. Regardless of the penalties imposed, any program that grants individuals who are unlawfully present the legal permission to remain here rewards illegal behavior and is unfair to those who obey the law and go through the regula­tory and administrative requirements to enter the country legally. Those who enter the United States illegally should not be rewarded with permanent legal status or other such benefits, and they should be penalized in any road to citizenship. Those who enter and remain in the country illegally are violating the law, and condoning or encouraging such violations increases the likelihood of further illegal conduct."

Quote from the Heritage Foundation

"I'm pleased that you all are here to witness the signature of the Secure Fence Act of 2006... This bill will make our borders more secure. It is an important step toward immigration reform... The bill authorizes the construction of hundreds of miles of additional fencing along our southern border...We're modernizing the southern border of the United States so we can assure the American people we're doing our job of securing the border. By making wise use of physical barriers and deploying 21st century technology we're helping our Border Patrol agents do their job."

Quote from George W. Bush

The solution is obvious and simple allow more legal immigrants balanced diversely from all over the world while at the same time actually enforcing the laws we already have on the books. We need diversity in our immigrants as this is the only fair way to do it. Why should Mexico be favored over all the other countries? The status quo that career politicians have for different reasons either for cheap labor on the right or votes on the left as either reason is immoral and must be stopped now.

  1. Step one - We need to focus heavily enforcement on areas where border crossing actually happen and monitor the entire border with a sufficient force of Border Patrol agents and troops. Allow the illegal aliens currently in the country to get work visas but not citizenship as that would be unfair to all the law abiding immigrants waiting.
  2.  Step two - let the illegal aliens get in line with rest of the prospective immigrants waiting to get in this country. Raise the immigration levels as we concurrently enforce our existing laws at the same time. This is a simple, logical, fair and balanced approach.
 "The economic and social consequences of illegal immigration... are staggering... Illegal aliens have cost billions of taxpayer-funded dollars for medical services... Immigration is a net drain on the economy; corporate interests reap the benefits of cheap labor, while taxpayers pay the infrastructural cost... $60 billion dollars are earned by illegal aliens in the U.S. each year. One of Mexico's largest revenue streams (after exports and oil sales) consists of money sent home by legal immigrants and illegal aliens working in the U.S... This is a massive transfer of wealth from America - essentially from America's displaced working poor - to Mexico."
