George Trys It On

Last night the president made an effort to educate the nation about illegal immigration.  The job is too big for one speech.  The points he made were very good for the most part but served more to underline the tremendous structural problems than to actually begin to resolve the issue.  The United States needs more population but that population must be assimilated as citizens of the United States sharing a common culture.  We do not need a multicultural society except to appreciate the differences while emphasizing the similarities.

Those who worry about an extra 200 million people over a 40 year period are wasting their time and energy.  Raise the limits; enforce the language and civics requirements so that our new citizens will be complete and able to function according to our traditional values.  Yes the borders should be secure, North and South; it is not up to the US to wilt from criticism by Mexico and Canada.  Those two nations have very strict immigration enforcement do we hear complaints?  For example a Honduran or Guatemalan coming into Mexico illegally is arrested and is considered a felon.  They are immediately deported either back home or sent on their way to the US.  As for Canada, just try and get through while in possession of a felony conviction; immediate turn-around is the treatment.

The real problem of illegal immigration is caused by a very weak and corrupt Mexican and Latino economic and political systems.  People don’t leave home if they don’t have to.  Once here these immigrants do not assimilate as quickly as is needed.  A key to successful assimilation is language.  The first step then is to eliminate any language but English in the schools and legal system. Without this requirement and underclass will be a fixed aspect of US society, one that is ruled by criminals within the group; just like their home countries today.

Freedom requires the ability to move physically, socially, and economically based on one’s skills.  Without life skills and language capacity no one can successfully negotiate a social hierarchy.  The chief failure in the US is its awful education system which is completely broken.  The wacko left, teachers unions, and feel-gooders have abandoned the fundamentals of a successful life: reading, writing, and arithmetic.  These three things are the cornerstones of success all else flows from them.

George Bush has made a stab at resolution but it will prove inadequate to the need and will most likely have disturbing consequences if the basics are not addressed first.
