So be it, the DUmmies say the same thing about GW Bush.
...Thanks to the North American Free Trade Agreement, competition with inexpensive American corn has ruined tens of thousands of small Mexican farmers,...
It seems contradictory that the cheap labor that is thriving in this country is supposedly unable to provide the same economic advantage for their own.
The author of this article is whining about what is, on both sides of the argument, while proposing no workable solutions. Unfortunately, that is common even here on FR. The author does point out that the "solutions" create problems of their own while not really solving the core problem at all.
The benefit of the status quo from the Mexican point of view is they can simultaneously dump their poor on us, eliminating any need for welfare spending on their part even if they were so inclined, and the income from the illegals sent back home is their third largest source of income, and it is in American dollars.
Cheap labor here keeps salaries suppressed just as cheap products from abroad keep prices down. None of this would be true were we not fighting our own leftists at home. Rest assured that anything the Democrats propose, from increasing minimum wages to drivers licenses for illegals, is to handicap and transform our constitutional government that provided for our freedom and prosperity. The only reason they aren't squawking about cheap goods from China is because China is our enemy and their friend.
The thing that will eventually force a solution, whatever it turns out to be, to the illegal problem is the rising crime rate brought about by Mexican gangs. Hitler loosed the criminals on society to create unrest and demoralize society. The Communist do the same. Castro emptied his prisons and asylums on us. Democrats fight for the rights of the criminal scum as well as the killing of the innocent unborn and disabled. Is there a pattern here? Absolutely, and the sooner we stop fighting all the problems created by the left and start fighting the Democrats themselves, the sooner we will get back to sanity.
Rest assured, if they ever gain complete control these problems will be solved. All trouble makers, no matter their origin, will be eliminated. History is full of examples.
