The current immigration issue has long historical roots in
American society. We are all immigrants (based on the Bering
Strait theory).Some immigrants have been widely accepted by
the U.S. or at worst accepted after a generation. Others have
not.
What is the common basis for American acceptance and what is
common to non acceptance. Why were some groups accepted
and others not? Why is the current immigration issue in terms
of Latinos such a hot topic and why is it often debated in
Congress. The current often discussed issue is focused on
Latino young people and children being "the new wave "of
immigrants ( which are not wanted) but this issue towards
Latinos had long historical roots and does not evolve from just
a current perceived "crises". There is more to this issue.
Homeland security is probably not a significant issue as there
have been few indications of security threats from the south.
Nearly all orange alert related events have pointed to our
NORTHERN border. Current Numbers are also not THE
primary issue as many Latinos encountered similar
"immigration issues" and attempt to "plug" the borders and
reduce Latino immigration in past decade. Be logical and
thoughtful and complete. Why do many people and officials
focus primarily (but not exclusively) on Latinos when we
discuss immigration? Our highest percentage increases in
immigrants were Anglos (primarily British -many also in a
sense were illegal as they did not attempt to obtain the
approval of indigenous peoples. Europe was he source of this
"uninvited " migration. ?
Do not rely on the issue of legal and illegal status for though
important, it is an issue that has always been present for all
groups and is usually now a rationalization not a reason.
DO NOT USE THE PROXIMITY OF MEXICO , CENTRAL
AMERICA AND SOUTH AMERICA AS PART OF YOUR
ARGUMENTS
NOR USE THE INCREASING NUMBERS OF LATINOS
These ideas do play a role b
ut
they are far too simplistic
. You need to think and develop more complete discussions.
Let me state once again. Do not use the issue of illegal or
illegal as part of your discussion at all. The first settlers to
American were ILLEGAL. ( That means the settlers at
Jamestown and Plymouth Rock) Ask the Native Americans. The
European settlers ( primarily British at the beginning) were not
invited nor did they try to assimilate to the tribes in which they
found themselves. They did not obey the Native American
"laws" either. I want you to reach beyond this every simple
argument to other ideas. It simply does not adequately explain
the passion or focus of many.
Let me also dispel some other "common sense myths". Latino
immigrants do pay taxes and they pay in far greater amounts
(value) then other people (non immigrants) of similar income
levels pay. . They receive social services (health, welfare)
fairly equal in value or less than other groups in their income
categories.. They have added enormous value to and even
provided the foundation for the continued low pricing of
agricultural products and also housing and business
construction. Without this labor pool, it is fairly
unanimously agreed that the prices of these goods and other
services would be very high. (2-3 times higher). One of the
major reasons that immigrants have increased in North America
recently is due to NAFTA ( a Free trade agreement) which had
destructive impact on Mexico and in some ways benefited
United States more than any other participant.
