We should gladly absorb the cost to deport the kids. Yes, it will be tough on the kids, but it will send a message to those countries to stop sending your kids our way. By the way, why doesn't Obama pick up the phone to the Presidents of these countries and say, "stop this, or we are cutting our aide to your country"?
He doesn't because the left sees the influx of -------- purely from a political perspective. They will (they think) ultimately become democratic voters if we can just get them in. I think they are naive to the fact that this is going to adversely affect their long standing relationship with the African American community, and middle class Americans. It is already starting.
Allowing illegal, cheap labor into the country has the biggest impact on the African American community, where unemployement hovers around 11%. The billionaires want immigration reform because it allows companies to keep wages & benefits down. America's middle class is slowly disappearing, and I think the left is drastically off-base in trying to be supportive of these --------. Who gives a ---- if the minimum wage is raised? As long is there in an overabundance of labor (see --------), then unemployment will continue to be high and opportunity limited for middle class Americans.
Whichever party fights for middle class Americans that are already legally in this country is the winner moving forward. 100 years ago, when WWI broke out...America stopped the massive (legal) immigration from European countries. What was the net result? Well, it allowed still living slaves, and their descendants to migrate north and start to work in the factories that previously would not hire them. It was the start of the building of the middle class for the A-A community.
America needs to rebuild itself, and the first priority should be to stop the freaking bleeding at the borders. Ship them out, build a bigger fence, use drones, whatever...but eliminate the incentive.
