Mexicans Say Immigration "Inevitable"Topics: Immigration and Border Issues
Does this sound like we're getting anywhere on controlling Mexican illegals flowing across our border like rats in a corn field?
They name their babies Johnny and Leslie, so certain are they that their kids' future lies in the United States. Returning migrants sprinkle English into their speech as they talk knowingly about job markets in U.S. towns.Don't read the rest unless you have a full bottle of your favorite spirits available next to you.
America may want to stop illegal immigration, but most Mexicans accept it as a fact of life they can't imagine changing.
Mexico's economy, society and political system are built around the assumption that migration and amnesties for undocumented migrants will continue -- and that the $20 billion they send home every year will keep coming, and almost certainly grow.
In fact, the government is counting on continued cash from a Mexican-born U.S. population it predicts will rise from 11 million to between 17.9 million and 20.4 million by 2030.
Have our politicians in Washington gone stark-raving mad even thinking about amnesty - which is certain to only encourage this crap?
I'm shaking my head in disbelief over the incompetence and failure of Washington to bring a screaching halt to the Mexican invasion of America! They are fiddling with America's future.
