Former President George W. Bush, illegal alien advocate and a RINO in many other respects, often tried to defend north-bound invaders with the nonsensical argument that Mexicans came to America primarily in search of freedom and because they shared American values.
W. actually believed, or professed to believe, that the reason so many millions of Mexican peasants risked their very lives crossing the hot, deadly desert was to take advantage of America’s Democracy and Constitution-based government.
He vociferously railed against those who argued that illegals were drawn to America by free health care, free education, food stamps, welfare, subsidized housing and other financial incentives to which they were not legally entitled.
So, why are freedom and American values no longer attracting millions to our great nation? And why are so many Mexican illegals headed south in order to escape the Obama depression?
The answer can be found, in part, at the reference and has nothing to do with freedom and values:
Well, that’s one way to stem the tide of illegal aliens streaming across the border from Mexico.In a word, then, the answer is Dinero. Illegal aliens come to America to steal jobs and benefits from American citizens.me to America to steal jobs and benefits from American citizens.me to America to steal jobs and benefits from American citizens.
Jack up unemployment rates to near double digits, dunk America into a double-dip recession and put us so deeply into hock with the Chinese communists that it will take generations for us to recover.
After long enough, living and working and trying to eke out bare survival in America becomes even worse than trying to get by in Mexico.
A new study from the highly esteemed Pew Hispanic Center says the millions of Mexicans who risked their lives crossing the desert to get here to the promised land for a better life have given up on the U.S.
This is no small feat. Have you ever been to Mexico? Not the ritzy beach towns with the gated resorts, but Nuevo Laredo? The dusty streets are filled with bony children selling gum and candy for just a few spare pennies.
Desperate as that little trade may have once seemed to us, at least it has the vibe of the floor of the New York Stock Exchange during the ‘90s. Nothing like that is going on anywhere on this side of the border.
Remember the axiom of big government bureaucrats: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. When, finally, under the crushing weight of taxes and regulation, it stops moving, subsidize it.
So the Mexicans have quit coming to the hopeless part of North America. Canada is just too far to walk.
Or, at least, the few final stragglers who have not kept up with America’s woes and are still sneaking into the U.S. are balanced out by all the illegal Mexicans already here who are now risking their lives to cross the desert to escape the American “dream.”
Now we know why all the politicians in Washington have finally agreed to beef up security and build a fence along the southern border. They’re desperate to keep all the Mexicans from leaving.
That’s right, who would raise their children and mow their lawns and do all of America’s dirty work if all the Mexicans left?
Authors of the Pew report call the stunning shift in migration patterns historic. Not since the Great Depression, they say, has a shift of this magnitude occurred along the U.S.-Mexico border. Not since the Great Depression?”
Most could hardly care less about high-minded notions like liberty, human rights, and equality. Which is why returning to Mexico will be so seamless for them!
Sorry, W., but illegals came here to rip American citizens off—and political hacks like you enabled the rip offs!
