IS THIS WHY CONGRESS AND BUSH FEAR BORDER ISSUE?

As those of you who visit this site know I am a Bush supporter and a Republican. As readers you also realize that there are several issues that I disagree with the President and the majority in Congress. The issue of illegal aliens and the security of our borders are primary among my disagreements. Remember I am a conservative first and then a Republican. It has puzzled me to no end as to why the Congress is so unwilling to address the securing of our borders and getting tough on illegal aliens and the employment of the same. Securing the borders and even closing them is as simple as issuing an order to close them. Evidence this by the JFK assassination. When it was initially thought that Cubans were behind the assassination the Mexican border was closed completely and not re-opened for several days. So this task is not that difficult. In my mind and thinking there has to be a reason why the government is placating Mexico concerning this issue and additionally so unwilling to , "offend, " the Mexican administration which so clearly is not a true ally to the United States and actually acts more like an enemy. I think I may have found the answer. By clicking on the title of this article you will find a report of the largest imports of crude oil to the United States. The largest import to this country is MEXICO !!!! Could oil be the bases of the unwillingness of the Congress to deal with the situation. I realize that political correctness toward aliens and the possibility of a huge voter block combined with not wanting to offend business by taking away part of their work force is also part of the problem but it seems to me that oil is also a great deal of the reason. This in itself could very well explain why politicians are so willing NOT to listen to the people on this issue and willing to do as they wish. Ladies and gentleman this country belongs to WE THE PEOPLE and not they the politicians. Our voice is starting to be heard. Now we must demand that border security become the TOP priority!!!!

Ken, you and I are on the same page on this issue. It simply does not make sense to allow a permanent, low-skill underclass to develop - especially when it is in contravention of the law.

However, corporate interests are served by keeping wages lower and improving profitability. How much of the money makes its way into the pockets of key politicians? Follow the money and you will see why the President and Congress do not act.

Mexicans who are illegally in this country are still able to vote in Mexico. That is why you have Vicente Fox planning on stopping in four cities in his upcoming tour of the U.S. He is campaigning for his party's nominee here in this country. That is pathetic - a foreign leader campaigning in our country for votes.

I can't seem to pound hard enough on the Close The Border Theme. No other country in the world is this feeble with their border security.

Seems the lobbyists run more of the country then we do.

We need to take back America by voting in people who think like we do. We need to identify and support candidates who will act for the people. I don't care what party they fall under. I want honest people who are willing to take their constituents opinion to office with them and vote accordingly.

I'll say it again, although I hate to admit it, that I'm basically with the president on this one -- with sme key differences:
1. Don't use the Guard, just fund and expand the Border Patrol, as you'd promised in 2000.
2. Guest worker program? Sure, but with a provision that makes the move toward citizenship possible. Will it create a second-class labor force that can be easily expoited? Yup, and if you're not even a citizen, well...prepare to be exploited. My grandparents were. But the goal of citizenship is worth it.
3. Negate the "free trade" agreements that are massively expanding the impoverished worker-class that finds it necessary to immigrate here.
4. Make realistic quotas for Latin American immigration. Yes, there are jobs that Americans don't want to do (and that's a good thing. Do you send your kids to college to pick berries?) We need migrant workers. Make it easier for them to be here legally.

Do you have any idea how damaging your porous borders are to the canadian economy. There are only roughly 33 million canadians. How are we to compete with american corporations that employ millions of illegals? The lack of enforcement is an attack on us all and not just america. You are absolutely within your rights to be incensed about the lack of enforcement. Who would want to start a business in America when your competitors are willing to break the laws they know will not be enforced? The corrupt corporations such as Tyson foods force every American to seriously think about breaking the laws to feed their own families. Tomato pickers had their wages increased from 1 penny per pound to 2 pennies per pound. The guest worker program is just legislated slavery. Have you read of Tom Delays business associates in the Marianna Islands. Apparently the people pay several thousand dolars to be shipped to the islands where they live in a bunkhouse for slave wages and the owners who have serious connections in Asia contribute immensely to the republican party. This offshore enterprise is a direct attack on what is left of the clothing and textile industry that used to be inside America. When America signed onto NAFTA there were numerous American corporations that set up manufacturing centers right across the border from America. How can you blame Mexicans for moving to where you set up the manufacturing. Shortly after NAFTA the same American corporations packed up and left to China and other places they could exploit even cheaper labor. While all the American media was condeming investing in Chinese companies and stocks big corporations like wal mart were building manufacturing in China. What A sad state of affairs.

Wow! I never even thought about the point Anonymous put forth, but it is an excellent point.

I agree, we need to close our borders. But I don't think it will happen unless, or until, we have another disaster in this country, and yes, I'll bet my last potato chip (I'm not a betting person so will leave money out of this) that it has a lot to do with oil.

Thanks for a great post. I didn't realize Mexico provided the most oil. ...Learning something new every day!

Rob, don't forget that three of the candidates in the Mexican election actually kicked off their campaign in Los Angeles last September! We agree with oil in the mix follow the money and the illegal votes!

Vern, you mentioned realistic quotas. Do your realize that the Senate version of the comprehensive bill that is being voted on today and tomorrow will actually allow more than 80 million legal immigrants into the country in the next 20 years? That's more than a quarter of the present population with 80% of that number being Mexican. this would actually make them the majority in 20 years unless this legislation is blocked in conference.

Ablur, there is currently a rebellion in the Republican ranks at the primary level doing just that, voting out incumbents and replacing them with conservative candidates. We are the employers of the Comgress and as employers it is up to us to FIRE them for their lunacy!

Annon, Like Gayle I had not considered the part of the illegals debate that you pointed out. Yes we are angered about the border situation but as you point out it has greater implications then just our border and the economic drain it causes in the United States.

Gayle, I was amazed when I found the list about the top 15 oil imports. I had thought that Middle East oil and then Venezuala topped the list because that is the impression that is given by the media and Congress. Did you also notice that Mexico provides the second largest import of refined product? This list explains alot. It actually angers me more woth the inaction by Washington!

Not sure about the oil issue as a reason for kowtowing to Mexico. Think prices are pretty much market driven. That said, we seriously need to get more independent of foreign oil. Thanks to envrios & Congress that's not gonna happen soon.

Reposted comment from my site:

"The top sources of US crude oil imports for March were Mexico (1.697 million barrels per day), Canada (1.693 million barrels per day), Saudi Arabia (1.313 million barrels per day), Venezuela (1.183 million barrels per day), and Nigeria (1.114 million barrels per day). The rest of the top ten sources, in order, were Angola (0.510 million barrels per day), Iraq (0.476 million barrels per day), Algeria (0.281 million barrels per day), Ecuador (0.242 million barrels per day), and Colombia (0.170 million barrels per day). Total crude oil imports averaged 9.796 million barrels per day in March, which is a decrease of 0.101 million barrels per day from February 2006. The top five exporting countries accounted for 71 percent of United States crude oil imports in March and the top ten sources accounted for approximately 89 percent of all U.S. crude oil imports."

In the early 1980's big oil and big government pulled out of oilsands expansion agreements to the tune of a couple of billion dollars. Part of the politics was the province of Alberta gaining a strong provincial financial foothold and the feds wanted to spank them for their power grab. Big oil knew there were proven reserves and they could invest any time. There were many Canadians from all over the country who came to make their fortunes in the oil patch and multiple governments shut them down. I am not for fossil fuels but the tonal difference utilizing the resources in this safe location would have gone a long way to relieving other tensions globally. The media hiding this stable resource for years was a deliberate campaign now being profited from immensely. Estimates are at least another million barrels a day could have already been online. You better hope Cuba doesn't strike it rich in the area they have been exploring because your ultra neo cons will have a fit. Don't even think about Alaska. I am not about to give up polar bears because you want to burn gas.
