Skip to comments.People at the top have decided the US will invite in the Third World - the question is, Why?

The question that won't go away is, why has a decision been made -- and it clearly has been made -- that the US will not restrict the entry of illegal immigrants?
Bush and the other political leaders - of both parties - pay no more than lip service to border control. Meanwhile, the borders remain uncontrolled - obviously by design, because specific strategies for control (such as more funding for border agents) are rejected. Als, Bush reportedly is moving to make illegals eligible to receive Social Security payments.
A decision to invite more illegal immigrants in has been made. Why? That's what the American people are being kept in the dark about.
My theory has to do with demographics. American natives - whites and blacks - are not reproducing in the numbers to sustain asset values (homes and stocks) when the Baby Boomers retire and try to sell these assets. Unless there are people to buy them (for instance, immigrants to crowd together in large numbers in homes now occupied by two or 2.5 baby boomers), asset values will plummet, the economy will sink, and baby boomers' retirements will be impoverished nightmares.
I vote for new world order conspiracy.
I don't know if you're being sarcastic --- but it's not tin-foilish to recognize that a policy decision has been made to open the doors to massive immigration, and yet the public has not been given an explanation or justification for this decision (or even an honest acknowledgment that the decision has been made)
Secondly, I think there is a tremendous amount of white guilt. You notice when Walmart got busted for illegals, it was for using white (Ukrainian and Polish) illegals. Most of the liberal elite if for a darkening of the United States to pay for white "crimes" of the past.
I would guess several factors:
Get more workers into the Social Security Ponzi scheme
More future voters, and both the Dems and the GOP feel they can win the battle for those voters.
And, like you said, to keep the real estate market propped up as well.
If that is the decision (I've thought the same thing myself) then it could be accomplished by increasing *legal* immigration.
Maybe that would be too hard to accomplish politically.
The one big "benefit" of illegal immigration is that illegals work for less than legals.
Yep - they can afford to move into gated communities. I knew some wealthy people from Venuzuela, and they lived in their own private fortress. Which means this country is looking more and more like theirs with each passing day.
Free trade means open borders!
I am thinking of getting the neighbors together and putting a gate on our cul de sac. I believe it will add significantly to the values of our homes.
I do think the Latin American custom of high walls surrounding both the front and back yards will soon be popular in my city.
IMO, in order to find out "why" we must ask "what"?
"What" will happen is the slow decline into 2nd and 3rd world status for the US. The pols who had souls have sold them for temporal reasons and that is the "why".
the public has not been given an explanation or justification for this decision (or even an honest acknowledgment that the decision has been made)<<<
If I said what I really wanted to say, tonight, there would be a knock on my door, and standing there would be two fellas in dark glasses. . .
Will these immigrants be able to afford the homes or will they use more resources than they put in? Hard to tell I guess.
Add one: A way to print money that leaves the country for good, similar to drug money and petrodollars.
Or, far more likely, both parties perceieve no political benefits to promoting immigration reform, and would rather play it safe so as to not piss off the largest minority in the US.
Truth bump to the top!
I hear you.
