Yes this is America
Not sure of the relavance to illegals? that's just the USs [email protected]
#$ed up medical system, or a piss poor hospital.
While I do understand and have sympathy, lets look at the OPs little story for a second.
If it were not for the fact that the guy had broken into the house and made the beds and cleaned the kitchen and mowed the grass, your house would be a **** box,lol, at which point we'd all be heading south because the houses were so much cleaner
Seriously, we can't have it both ways, immigration is always a hot topic...everywhere. But at the same time, the financial stability of this country is perched (delicately right now) on a cliff. Lets say we could round up and deport every single illegal in the US....tonight!
What do think would happen to this country, long and short term?
Aside from having no resturants, garbage collected, drains unblocked, grass cut, fuel pumped.........
That's short term effects, the country would get over those in almost a generation, thats how long it would take to convince the average school leaver that his best option for feeding himself is to get down the drains and start unblocking! It would take about a generation for the "family" money to run dry, accelerated by the now $33 big mac,because the initial knee jerk reaction would be to pay a higher salary to feed the sudden demand for workers doing crap jobs.
This in turn would drive the price of pretty much everything through the roof, making most (now affordable(ish)) items unobtainable by the masses. They would naturally revolt sending the country further into a tailspin for some time.
Simply standing up and demanding the borders be sealed, is daft in concept as in application. I do agree that something has to be done, really I do! But what? it will take decades for any plan to see fruition if immplamented properly. Can anyone here name a politition who thinks in decades? go on, I'll make it easy for you, name one who genuinely thinks fifteen years ahead!
Whatever is done to stop the influx of illegals must not do so at the expense of the country, otherwise it's utterly pointless surely?
