The largest segment of the American population who wants to thwart any real illegal immigration reform, is naturally the predator overclass that benefits from it the most. Some conservatives obsessed with undocumented workers in the United States overlook the fact that without NAFTA, without thousands of jobs offered at poverty level and below wages and without the Corporate union -busting lobby that buys our public officials - there perhaps wouldn't be an illegal immigration problem.
La Raza, Hispanic interest groups, the ACLU and other cultural Marxists are not the ones who are 'softest' on illegal immigration, it is the upper income 20 percent within the United States. And it is particularly this class who should be footing the bill for whatever public services that illegal immigrants accumulate and not burden the middle and working class. Illegal immigration is a major tool in the Overclass's economic warfare and it will only abate when the wealthy are directly charged for it via specialized 'Undocumented Worker Tax' on the upper brackets of affluence, the tiny elite who owns most of the wealth of the United States. Fences and mass deportation will not solve the situation:you have to follow the money and hit it at its source. These 'Minutemen' are conducting vigils in the wrong places.
It is academic that the notion that illegals "do work that American Blacks wouldn't do"(Vincente Fox) is a big myth. Americans will work at meatpacking plants, construction, the agricultural realm etc. for a decent wage and rights - not the poverty Permanent Peasant Wage that is paid to undocumented workers. And the wealthy do not have an interest in amnesty or even the Wall Street Journal's "open borders" dogma: take the illegal out of immigrants and they would be of no use to this upper class. Mandating that all immigrants learn English will rob the wealthy of a cowed and ignorant feudal peasantry. Hell, they might even form(gasp) Unions.
If you're against illegal immigration and want true reform, you should therefore champion a Tax - a big one - on the Predator Class in the USA. Fences, a army of Border Patrol and targeting the illegals themselves is not the answer. If Corporate America pays the burden of illegal immigration as they should, watch them beat down the doors of their politicians wanting to do genuinely something about the situation. It is time, high time, to end this conservative Nanny State and attack socialism - Affluensa Socialism - that is.
