It’s obvious to everyone that our country has a huge problem with immigration. Visitors come into our country and overstay their visas, or others sneak across the Mexican border in search of a better life. And unscrupulous businesses employ illegal workers and hurt Americans by keeping wages low.
Our country’s last major immigration reform took place over 30 years ago, under President Reagan. Since then, we’ve had Republicans as president, Democrats as president, Republicans controlling the House and Senate, Democrats controlling the House and Senate. Yet the problem has only gotten worse.
There are many reasons to be upset about our nation’s immigration dilemma, but we should FOCUS THE OUTRAGE AT THE TWO PARTIES THAT HAVE BEEN PUTTING THEIR OWN INTERESTS AHEAD OF AMERICA’S FOR DECADES. Democrats know that many illegal immigrants will have children in America, and those kids will grow up to – more often than not – vote for Democrats. Republicans cater to Wall Street over working people, and they know that illegal immigration drives down wages and saves businesses money.
So BOTH CONSCIOUSLY CHOOSE TO LET THIS JOKE OF AN IMMIGRATION SYSTEM LIVE ON while doing nothing about it – or, worse, outright standing in the way of a solution.
Back in 2013, there was a rare bipartisan effort to solve the immigration mess once and for all. It might not have been a perfect solution, but it was good enough to be approved by over a two-thirds majority in the Senate. Sure, that sounds impressive, but then what happened was no surprise … the OBSTRUCTIONIST REPUBLICANS IN THE HOUSE (INCLUDING KEN CALVERT) DIDN’T HAVE THE GUTS TO EVEN VOTE ON IT, and simply let the bill expire. Americans continue to lose while lousy and corrupt politicians keep getting elected!
