THE MISERY STRATEGY

The New York Times has a good editorial today providing an overview of where the country is going on immigration. And it ain't pretty.

    Definetly Washington is going with the enforcement only aproach. These politicians do not want to be labeled as amnesty givers above all. Unfortunatly for all Immigrants Legal and Illegal the enviroment in the US will turn worst before it turns better. Get ready for a lot of racial profiling and harshnes all over before these people realize what we all know. This is impractical and the wrong way to aproach immigration.

    Greg, I see that the ssn no match enforcement goes into effect this week. This could cause thousands of undocumented to lose their jobs or maybe not. Or is it that the employers will simply ignore the law? Are'nt most of the undocumented paid under the table anyway? I don't know if this that big of an issue, what do you think?

    Not all Illegal Immigrants are paid cash under the table. Hospitality Insustry jobs(e.q: Hotels, Restaurants). Probablly landscapers, construction type jobs and agricultural jobs get paid cash. Also factories Meat packing plants, Carpet mills etc.. they do not pay their employees with cash under the table I don't think. This SSN rule will have an effect on business may be they will rethink political campaign contrubutions to the anti immigrant politicians.

    "Their one big idea is that harsh, unrelenting enforcement at the border, in the workplace and in homes and streets would dry up opportunities for illegal immigrants and eventually cause the human tide to flow backward. That would be true only if life for illegal immigrants in America could be made significantly more miserable than life in, say, rural Guatemala or the slums of Mexico City. "

    Sums it up nicely. As it is very unlikely that life in the US is going to get significantly more miserable than life in some places in Latin America for even the poorest of people, I guess we'll see anti-immigrants start talking about some sort of "Final Solution".

    To make this country worse than India/China, then indians and chinese will go away, to make the country worse than Mexico, the mexicans will go back too -- US is going to this direction.

    When was this country based on immigrant rules anyways.. when europeans came, i doubt they had visa sponsorship.. why are the same descendants now behaving as anti-immigrants.

    Quite franky, America was , is and even in future strong mostly because of hard-working immigrants.

    I guess no one gets it...the Federal Government's main reason for its formation....is to protect us from foreign invasion and to protect your borders....... period! Am I the only one that understands this basic principle. See you allowed this government to do many things it was not suppose to do........or get involved with..... and look where we are now! All states have the right to inact their own laws when the Federal Government does not do its job...in fact they can leave the union it they choose. Yes that is right either the Feds do their job or they are gone! See when you allowed Feds to entangle everything in your state and then collect all your money and then fail to do its basic function....protection of your borders....you have a huge problem. All states need to quit being wimps and enact their own laws and if the feds don't like...who cares...just get it done!
