As some of your readers are fond of idealized fiction, quotes or fable
as the basis for promulgation of immigration policies, I offer the
following: "Oh what a tangled web we weave..." and
"Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall..." for analysis. A deliberate, illegal
act of entering the US by whatever means becomes a difficult task in the
attempt to construct that person "back together again" as a bonified,
legitimate US citizen or even as one that our society can deal with in a
practical manner as a non-citizen. To the degree that this is done, what
kind of "citizen" will be the result or what kind of society will be
achieved, when illegality is the origin? Such attempts fail and/or endure with "band-aid solutions" for
the same reason that you can't put a square peg into a round hole. An
illegal alien is not a citizen or properly admitted. If he or she were,
there would be no problem and such contrived "solutions" as this or the
superfluous "matricular consular" ID card program would not be needed.
The solution now is to deport them, not to try to accommodate them.
[See: www.deportaliens.com for details] Let them try to come back
later as legal migrants (after a 5 year penalty for their illegal
attempt) as others properly do. Perhaps it would be easier to come up
with the right solution if we called them by the correct term: illegal
aliens. We will never get a "handle" on immigration until it is limited
and controlled, not by accommodating the illegalities.
