A Challenge

I challenge my readers to answer the following:

1. How would you go about enforcing a law that makes 11,000,000 (at least) foreign national into felons? Where will you jail them? How big of a court system do you propose to try them? Will they be allowed a defense?

2. How would you go about enforcing a law that makes 3,000,000 (at least) small business owners into felons? (Restaurants, hotels, car washes, garment makers, preschools, etc.) Where will you jail them? How much will it cost to create this massive amount of legal activity? Will you just pick a few poor suckers and make them examples by lottery, and the rest will go free?

3. If you just want the illegals to go home, how will you do this? Will the parents of children born here go home and leave the kids behind? What method will you use to round up 11,000,000 people and send them packing?

4. Those of you who think there are plenty of Americans just standing in line waiting to scrub toilets, pick tomatoes, work third shift factory jobs, and get the grills started at 5:00 a.m in your local restaurants, do you really believe this. We have only about 4.6% unemployment. Many consider this to be full employments. 11,000,000 fewer workers would create massive disruption, don't you think?

5. If we were able to deport 11,000,000 people or even a minor fraction of that many, are you ready for the economic results? Those younger than 35 have never experienced anything like a real recession. More than likely, we would be talking depression, not recession.

6. I have not heard a single person calling for the expulsion of the 100's of thousands of illegals here from Europe, Russia, Argentina, Brazil, Japan, Hong Kong, Thailand, Taiwan, India, Poland, etc. And this is not the first time we have had massive influxes of illegals. Just the first time they are so visible. Do you think it is reasonable that many Mexicans think there is some racism going on, when they are singled out? Consider the question carefully. I didn't say there was any racism, only asked, dear readers, that you try to see it through other's eyes.

There are many more such questions. But I'll leave it for now.
