With All Due Respect

Saturday, June 09, 2007

I hate to disagree with my learned friend BoonDoggie, but he's got the wrong end of the illegal alien problem.

I suggest that, after a 90 day period to allow businesses to rid themselves of illegal aliens, that we *pay* citizens a $500/head tax free bounty for each illegal hauled in. You think $100 is a lot of money in Mehico? Try dangling several thousand bucks to a guy in a chicken factory.

Oh, yeah, and you think that guy doesn't know he'd make a couple of bucks an hour more if there weren't 50 guys waiting to do his job because, without having to pay taxes, it's a pretty good job.

I suggest Congress pass a law making stores responsible for the immigration and tax reporting for people soliciting business in their parking lots. You wanna see how fast Home Depot and Lowes can reduce illegal alien income?

I further suggest that teachers get $500/head tax free bounty for identifying each kid in school who's not even supposed to be in this country. Sure, 75% of teachers are bleeding heart NEA union thugs, but even 25% of 'em will be enough to clean the schools up.

How about we give cops $1,000 into the PBA every time they alert federal authorities of the arrest of an illegal alien?

If you can't work, and your kid can't go to school, and the cops are dropping you off at the nearest federal pokey every time you drive your uninsured unlicensed pick-up-full-of-drunks-without-seatbelts to the Quickie Mart for a 12 pack of Bud, well, eventually you're going to back where you are legally supposed to reside.

    Hello. Long time reader, first time responder here.

    I should note that I'm a bit on the fence when it comes to the current immigration issue. But while I unfortunately don't have any solutions myself (I live in Michigan where the economy is kaput; even illegals don't want to come here, so the problem, for us in Michigan @ least, appears distant) isn't paying U.S. citizens to snitch on illegals a potentially dangerous road to travel down?

    While I live in a fairly affluent town, & don't tend to associate w/ criminals, I *DO* know multiple people that would jump @ the chance to offer up everybody, illegal or not, they come across....for less even. Christ, I can't imagine what the crack-heads of this country would be capable of just by themselves...& they'd probably offer up Find The Boots for no more than a $5 rock.

    Anyhow, I'm sure you see the point.

    Finally, where do you propose that all this payout $$$ come from? 12m illegals X $500 = No chance of ever being implemented.

    nic -

    Good points. Most importantly, come on down south, we need sensible people, and there is lots of work down here!

    The $$ cost of paying for turning people in is peanuts compared to the costs of serving them with our welfare and emergency medical system. Think of it as an investment.

    There are already crimestopper programs and IRS whistleblower programs, etc, etc today. Seems to have not turned us into a police state.

    I think we're going to have a national ID card with real identification requirements - much like a passport.

    Maybe we should have a sunsetted law so that it would require congressional re-authorization to re-up it ever five years. Once the illegal immigrant population is under control, we can go back to loosey goosey.
