US Congress Serious About Immigration Reform? If So, Let’s Follow Mexico’s Law!

Nearly 30 years after the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) of 1986 was signed into law by President Reagan, ostensibly to fix the illegal alien problem once and for all, America begins 2014 embroiled in yet another bitter, divisive, gut-wrenching debate over the fate of tens of millions of illegals who reside here unlawfully.

These tens of millions of uninvited and unwelcome peoples have settled here despite IRCA and despite the terrorist attack of 9/11 which should have caused our leaders to forcibly close US borders to unlawful entry.

As US lawmakers struggle to find answers to this continuing problem, our leaders should look south to our troubled neighbors in Mexico, where some of the toughest, no-nonsense immigration laws in the world are on the books.

What? You’re saying we should act like a bunch of greedy, vindictive, elitist savages?

Oh, wait…

Couldn’t we just adopt the Mexican policies and call it multiculturalism? Wouldn’t that be good?

After all, La Raza says Mexican culture is the greatest.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
