How is illegal immigration like spam?

May 16th, 2006

People act like both are unstoppable, viagra usa but no one seems willing to do the one thing that would eliminate them:

Bring the full force of the law down on the entities that benefit from them.

You want to stop spam? Forget the filters and “no mail” lists. Prosecute the businesses who benefit from it.

Sure the spam servers might be overseas and unreachable, but the people who MAKE the money CAN be reached. We know where they are. (Hell, they’re easy to find. After all, they want you to send them your money.)

Ruin them. Confiscate their property. Freeze their assests. Put them in prison.

I promise, the spam advertising Viagra stops the same day a few of the spammers find themselves on the receiving end of their own product via a guy named Bubba in a Federal pen.

The same holds true for illegal immigration.

Forget about building an inadequite and unpatrollable wall along the Mexican border. Just prosecute any U.S. employer who hires an illegal immigrant. Shut them down. Sentence them to 10 years of hard labor picking their own damn fruit and illegal immigration would dry up faster than the Rio Grand in an August drought.

We already have the ways to solve these “unsolvable” problems, what we don’t have is the will.

    I agree, many American companies hire illegal immigrants and profit from their hard working ethic and compensate them with low wages. Their is no reason why picking fruit should be considered a low paying job, in the contrary it should be well paid. I mean the tougher the job the more you should make, right? And if our farmers can’t afford to pay them the amount they deserve and stay competitive with imported fruit then close them down. Why are we pouring money into a dieing industry anyways? I have the perfect companies to go after, Temp Agencies…. Then on to the farm!!!

    It’s not as easy as you think – forged information is easy to come by; a “recycled” social security number can be had with relative ease. Wind up in the right neighborhood, and you blend in. The Constitution protects all citizens from illegal search and seizure, and probable cause is an integral part of upholding laws. So telling new citizens from non-citizens isn’t a slam dunk. It’s a harrassment suit waiting to happen.

    Sounds like you just made a great argument for a National Security Card, Tee. ;)

    I’m not as up-in-arms over it as some people are.

    We all have social security cards, we get driver’s licenses, we get someone to take a blood test in our stead so we can get married (heh), etc., etc., etc. Birth certificate! Death certificate! Visas! Master Cards! Starbucks frequent buyer cards!

    And people want to balk at another ID? Whatever.
