For a few days I have been debating the immigration issue with B. and Don. Basically, they say that we should send all the illegals to Mexico because they are here illegally. I’d like to ask them just a few questions related to the cost/benefit ratio of their idea as opposed to Carson’s idea.
First of all, we have 11 million (probably more) illegal immigrants in this country. Let’s be logical about this. Who is gonna pay to find and round up these millions? Taxpayers. How much will the manpower cost? When we find them, who is gonna pay to transport them to Mexico? Taxpayers. How much will the transportation cost? Will we get a crapload of school busses to carry them on their merry way? How much in gas?
Finally, if we get them back to Mexico, what are they gonna do? Ding! You’ve won the golden ticket, Charlie! Their asses are gonna be back here faster than a cat on a hot tin roof. In other words, it is akin to Obama’s funding of green energy, i.e., taxpayer dollars put to waste.
As Trump says, you must first seal the border. Carson is right in having illegals sign up as guest workers paying taxes, (now they are accounted for) and get in back of the line for legal immigration status. They would not be able to vote, and entitlements would be cut off. The latter, in and of itself, may have illegals fleeing this country. I do not understand how you boys cannot see the logic in this. It is compassionate, fair, and fiscally sound.
