Stopping illegal immigration is an impossible task, but can be managed


Immigration quandary:  Stop illegal immigration?  It’s not going to happen… Ever…  That’s life… That’s just a reflection of people wanting to have a better life for their families and for themselves.  But it can be curtailed, overnight, through federal law

Spending even 100 trillion dollars($) on fences made of Kryptonite all around the Land of the Free, 1000 feet high with the footings 1000 feet into the ground will not stop it…  Putting 3,000 additional troops on the border, or putting the whole U.S Army, Marine Corps, state National Guards along the U.S borders, with the Air Force, Navy, Coast Guard and Merchant Marine fleet in backup, will not stop it…  The problem is too complex to be solved completely, for even if every attempt to cross the border without documentation is thwarted, or every person trying to cross illegally is apprehended, there are not enough detention centers to hold them all, and once they are released on their own recognizance they disappear into an unreachable abyss, not to be found again…

And if they immediately are returned to their place of origin, they surely return again and again, even if caught again and again, because they are pretty sure they will be rehired again, once they return, again…  It’s a revolving door system.

The only thing that will severely curtail (not stop) illegal immigration, eventually, is if a robust federal law with strong penalties is passed and enforced strenuously against employers who hire new illegal immigrants…  From the corner restaurant to the auto paint and body shop to the multinational company to the farmer and rancher to the home builders, and to all the other venues of employment that contribute to illegal immigration, they all must be forced to stop hiring illegal immigrants….  If that is what society wants

The employers must be made to pay dearly in fines and even jail time, otherwise illegal immigration will continue….  But, still, even if laws against employers who hire these immigrants are passed, be aware that illegal immigration will continue, although at a much, much, much slower pace…

Strongly punishing those who employ new illegal immigrants (and deporting these newest immigrants) is specifically part of this explanation because often others already employed here have children born in this country who are of course U. S. citizens — thus, should The United States of America, the land of fairness and justice, and of family values, with a Judeo-Christian tradition, deport American children to foreign lands, along with their non citizen parents, or break apart their family?…

There you have it… This plan could be in effect overnightno huge Immigration Reform  monstrosity needed…  The plan could be tweaked later, if desired, after the first step is taken…

  1. Yes… With an explanation…

    There are people who have bought homes, created businesses, reared families, established work lives in this country because for decades they were allowed to do so by lax enforcement of immigration laws or for whatever reasons. Now, to attempt to deport in one swoop all of these tens of millions of people (without taking into consideration all their work, business and family obligations), frankly seems to me to be an impractical if not impossible task…

    In the post, what’s indicated is that once a federal law with real teeth would be enacted against employers, from that point on, any employer who hired an illegal immigrant would be penalized in a manner that would serve as a deterrent to hiring those potential employees… And after the passing of the new Federal law, as a part of it, any new illegal immigrant who attempted to get a job, would be deported…

    The word would get out that illegal immigrants would find it difficult if not impossible to get a job here (and that they would be deported), and so illegal immigration would be curtailed, drastically…

    If society wants this and if the politicians have the will to pass such a law, it would be done…

    • It’s still wrong that just because someone broke the law to get here but did it before the others who came later, they would get to stay here.

  2. You mean illegal aliens who already have a job in this country would be safe from deportation, altho’ they are here illegally?
