Those Aliens Again
Ideologues stem tide of possible agreement on a bill concerning "illegal" aliens. Of course the problems will not end with the passage of this bill. Nor is the fear and posturing by both Democrats and Republicans doing anything to give confidence to the voters of this country. Most of the issues raised during this debate lack substantive corrections to the problem. Should the Mexican government ever do something to actually provide education and work for its people, much of the problem of illegal immigration would dry up. Of course, corporate america would have to stop dependance on the workers from south of our borders. What else is new? Not much, I suppose because no one has the courage to do what is right over what is expedient.
