President Obama has already deported over 2.5 million illegal persons originally from South America – often separating families, that few in the populace even heard about till Donald Trump started talking about deporting 11 million persons currently residing in the USA illegally.
Even if Donald Trump wanted to actually deport 11 million people, which he doesn’t really, it doesn’t sound like that much of a stretch, given that 2.5 million persons have already been deported without much noise about it.
Sounds by the absence of noise that it went pretty smoothly.
I say, if you get convicted of a crime, and are sentenced to jail time, then you already signed your deportation papers along with those of your immediate family members.
If someone is poor in South America, chances are they’ll be poor here too. So what’s the difference? Some come here poor and raise themselves up, others don’t. Hey, I wouldn’t want to live anywhere in South America, because of all the corruption. But when you come here with that same corrupt mindset, you’re spreading a bad seed into the communities of otherwise law-abiding immigrants. Those communities don’t want it – that’s what they fled, only to discover that it sneaked in with them. Ouch.
Latino/Hispanic men pride themselves on being the heads of the families. Then take care of your families in a respectful way. Our streets are not lined with gold.
Empty the jails of people who come here illegally with the intent of committing crimes and getting away with it.
On the other hand, the USA has to stop using Israeli models to manage minorities here. It didn’t work with the Palestinians and it won’t work here with American Blacks and South Americans. Containment camps? In the USA? What is it about a mother and/or father who would send their little children on a journey to the USA alone? To find a better life? No. Better to die on the streets in America, than to die on the streets of their communities in South America?
Desperation? Despair? What happened to the ingenuity that they claim to have once they get to the USA? They didn’t have it in their own communities back home? Ingenuity doesn’t come from a community, it comes from the individual human spirit. America seems like an easy – though always difficult – way out.
I’d rather keep the family whole and commit to surviving and thriving together as a family in my community, no matter how corrupt. If they can do it here, they can do it there. Hispanics/Latinos are politically-minded people. Those oppressed often are. Use those acquired skills to fight corruption where you live.
