Immigration Reform? A Better Idea

By on 1.10.06 | 8:52AM

The Central American clown show -- meeting in Mexico City -- reportedly demanded that the US allow more immigration and legalize the illegals already here. I have a better idea.

Those nations - especially Mexico - that, as government policy, export their troubles to us, should pay a high price for doing so. All of these countries are on the dole. We should deduct $100,000 from their foreign aid grant for every illegal from their nation captured here (with double the penalty for everyone caught more than once). I'm just throwing that figure out. It may be far too low.

The tinfoil-hat crowd that rules most of these nations might get the message if illegal immigration started costing them money, instead of us.
