Posts Tagged ‘Border Patrol’

I think one of the things that helped get The Donald elected is his “will do” attitude. That is a good quality for a president to have. So, now that he is President Elect he will have to address the illegal alien question.

The west coast is being overwhelmed by it. Our P.E. has mentioned the building of a wall along the border with Mexico as a containment measure. An acquaintance of mine, who is not a Trump fan, called it “the Great Wall of Trump”. I had to laugh but it did get me thinking.

Is it just me, or does the whole idea of a wall such as worked for ancient China sound really expensive now? I mean, I am glad the guy is not afraid to think big. This is a good thing. But he is after all, a wealthy man so cost may not seem like such an issue to him as it does to me, therefor, I thought up an alternative, after I got done laughing at my acquaintance.

I reason thusly – Issue every person who wants to emigrate from south of the border a green card, this will allow them to find work legally. Put their information in a database at Border Patrol. This database can be interfaced with the welfare rolls upon which the green card carriers will not be allowed to appear, having already a job. Do not, at any time, allow them to sign up for welfare, never, nada, at all. Not being citizens they cannot vote and they should not be issued driver’s licenses either. The green card will constitute their legal ID and make them a part of our bureaucracy. It would be issued upon showing proof of employment and a street address within the United States. We could even charge a small fee say 2% of the gross pay per paycheck for as long as the card is valid because we would have their employer information.

These good people are coming here to work, so let them work.. They are, after all, willing to do the manual labor that we now consider to be beneath us so they really aren’t competition in the job market. And if they work hard, earn citizenship, and raise their children here, those same children will also grow up to think manual labor is beneath them because that is what we teach in our schools. So you see, these illegals are actually filling a very necessary niche and one that will always be open.

Essentially then, I propose that instead of spending billions on a Great Wall, we incorporate illegal aliens into our bureaucracy, make them conditionally legal, refuse to enroll them on welfare,  and charge them a fee for working here. That would take care of the overtaxed welfare system and the “they don’t pay taxes” complaint. I mean really, if the whole point here is to slow a raging flood (of illegal aliens) down to a trickle, bureaucracy is certain to work better than bricks. In Farwell’s Modern Abridged Dictionary bureaucracy is defined as: a civil organization designed specifically to collect money efficiently and function as slowly as possible.
