What To Do About The Increase Of Illegal Immigrants
What shall we do about the increase of undocumented immigrants? According to the article migrants no more there has been an increase of 300,000 undocumented immigrants in the past decade (http://search.epnet.com.proxy.li.suu.edu:2048/login.aspx?direct=true&db=aph&an=14940443.) The article says that this increase has been partially influenced by the increase of the Border Patrol. Because of the heightened securtiy, immigrants that do make it across are less likely to return home to visit. Thus we have, in a sense, locked these undocumented immigrants in. So I propose that we keep the Border Patrol where it is at, while at the same time finding those who employee undocumented immigrants and fine them. I know there are those out there that say it gets the product to the consumer cheaper, but if you can produce a cheap product while giving a better lifestyle to your employees isn't that even better? How do you accomplish these two goals? I suggest that the companies build a plant in mexico, or in this case buy farm land. This would allow those immigrant workers to stay in mexico,and obtain a farily decent paying job. By doing this they can purchase the things they need at a cheaper price and do not have to worry about the poverty line, or being seperated from their families. If we can make Mexico, their homeland, more desirable by relocating some jobs there it would make everyone better off.
