Dear Weekly Editor
We would be better off if no [immigration] bill is voted on until a few months or weeks before the elections (see 03/20/06 IW comment). That is why the push by some of the leadership. What is seen as the real and full cost of this kind of bill? We've been told that there is a cost to deporting illegals, around $45 billion or more then the DHS budget. How about other costs like parents and children being ripped apart, the loss of US jobs, the consequence to US businesses that will close, lose taxes, etc. With half of farm workers reported to be undocumented, the last two years we have seen farms being plowed under due to the shortage of workers. We see this now even in Maine in the seafood business and other industries. How about those that will not stop helping people regardless of their immigration status? If arrested and convicted I will face major losses, in rights, in jobs and such. What will be the full cost? Were will the funds come from? What programs will be cut to find the money? There are no numbers as to the cost and how will pay. How much will be the federal government shift programs cost to state and local governments? With new feelings of nationalism across the borders, people may feel they are safer and will become better off if stay home. Displacing millions of people the cost will be off the charts.
