12. immigration
Edited on Sun Jan-24-10 12:10 PM by inthenever
The problem isn't the 1st generation folks coming in and not learning English. That's typical. Usually, the 2nd generation is fluent. But, what we're currently doing with regards to the illegal influx of Mexicans is not very smart. We, as a nation, have a right to control immigration. It's important that we do so. The rapid influx of illegal Mexicans/Hispanics is fundamentally altering our culture in many areas (e.g., Miami). Further, it places strain on our educational and healthcare systems. It changes our political landscape. Some of these changes are for the better (e.g., access to good Mexican food!). Some are for the worse. The point is, we need reform that stems the flow of illegals into the country, re-establishes our immigration laws so that it is both fair for those who want to come here and fair for those that already here. It is the black market that brings illegals into the country, a black market that subverts all of those labor protections that have been fought for over the years.
