Real Solutions to Unwanted Immigration

True immigration reform and policy should have nothing to do with the way we look, what we wear, how we act or where we are from. The realistic immigration reform that debases and uproots the undeniable past moves past these barriers of race and ethnicity and makes solutions based on real problems. It asks critical questions and provides diverse solutions.

Real solutions:

  • The true regulation of illicit drugs and the detoxification of corrupt drug enforcement.

How a big US bank laundered billions from Mexico's murderous drug gangs

  • We need laws that protect and help our continental neighbors find solutions to poverty so that migration to the United States is not the only recourse.

  • We need to enforce anti- terrorism law, but at the same time we need to stop creating problems with the rest of the world in believing we are the ultimate super power, the global world is changing.

  • We need to work on creating solidarity within our country through respect, tolerance and love for our American family.

These are changes that would create and alleviate migration to our country. Immigration reform in the United States is threaded with it’s history. Maybe the reason Americans cringe at the idea of a racially charged immigration debate is that the facts portray a picture of a modern American we don’t want to see, but as our country’s Founding Fathers eternalized in the Declaration of Independence, if there is something we don’t like the only reasonable action is to change it.

When we fail to address this history and link it to the modern debate we enable its roots. We enable the idea that we are not a country of change and equality for people who are not white.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness... That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it.”

Because I still believe the Constitution was a document inspired of God to guide our country into its ultimate potential of true equality I know that it is the responsibility of just citizens to create the change necessary to endure and continue the history of change, reform and compassion that is also unquestionably intertwined with the heart of America.

Great Argumentation and American Immigration Reform

Hi Flor,

I read your posts. It's very well-written and researched.

I think Americans perceive the influx of immigrants as a threat to their culture but many do not realize that the culture has been lost to consumerism and special interests anyway.

While so Americans rely on immigrant labor -- they do not know it or appreciate it. The most vile comments come from people who have never sat around the table with a mother who struggled to get here and learned their stories. They would admire them if they would give them a chance.

But I have confidence in the younger generation to do what's right and necessary. There are many white Americans who are marrying latinos (my husband is from El Salvador).

The generational shift of power will eventually have a profound impact. Because there are many white women like me walking around with a hispanic looking child. The racial distinctions will be more and more blurred.

Our media does nothing to highlight the political issues that bring on this migration. It also ignores the amazing stories of struggle and success of the people who come here.

Heather thank you so much for you comment :) I have a couple white amigas that are married to latinos. I love the way cultures can combine and create subcultures of love and appreciation for the positive things in life. Hopefully our politicians can move past these issues and begin creating policy that reflects true American values.
