There would be little disagreement with Richard Baer's 7/16 quotation of
the Pres. Bush comment of matching a "willing employer and a willing
worker" if it were primarily confined to US citizens. As this open quote
has no such qualification, the current flood of legal and illegal
"migrant"/invaders is problematic. This is the same President whose
administration has just announced a whopping $455 billion deficit
including almost $5 billion per month in Iraq and is also running an
annual trade deficit of about $500 billion. To this can be added an
estimated $44 trillion dollars in unfunded US obligations or about 1/2
million per family and private debt of another 1/4 million per family.
Is there a relationship between uncontrolled spending and immigration?
Enormous pressure is introduced by such excess upon governments,
business and individuals to reduce costs, thus the attraction of cheap
labor which brings a myriad of new problems. The same "law of supply and
demand" mentioned in the NIF press release of 7/16 with too many dollars
chasing relatively fixed goods and services causes all prices to rise.
Reform is needed as NIF states, but not the legalization of the present
foreign invasion that they and other open immigration advocates have in
mind. Reduced government spending at all levels would greatly reduce the
present myopic fix of cheap labor at the overall detriment of the
taxpayer and society. Pres. Bush, et al, have discovered that similar to
his Texas ranch, he has more money left to spend if cheap labor sources
are used, but he is not the owner of America, only the CEO manager (Do
we have another Enron here?) with a fiduciary duty to citizens, not to
indulge himself, his administration or non-citizens. See: U.S.C.
Title 8, Section 1103 (1-5) [and] http://www.carryingcapacity.org. Mr. Baer's analogy of Prohibition to Mexican's violating our borders
is flawed not only because of the more serious nature of the offense,
but the entirely different situation of non-citizens usurping our
sovereignty, some of whom have ulterior motives of an Aztlan takeover.
Once again, it is a limited and controlled immigration policy that
provides the most benefits with the least problems. In
closing, I am aware that David Murray has contributed much to this forum
and subject, but so also has Norm Matloff.
