Immigration Law Enforcement; FAC explores infrastructure-based solution
Immigration from across our international borders with Mexico and Canada poses a significant challenge for peace, prosperity, and justice loving Americans.
Electoral pitfalls include, as expressed by the Founder and President of The Minuteman Project – a group whose views and tactics we don’t necessarily endorse – Jim Gilchrist, “the United States will morph into a one-party system, despite our heralded stature as a multiple political party system. That would make the USA political system almost a mirror image of China’s system. ”
Gilchrist continues; “Essentially, once America’s 20 to 30 million illegal aliens are amnestied, there is only a five year waiting period to receive legal citizenship status in the United States. Along with that status comes voting rights for those millions of former ‘non-voting’-illegal-aliens. ”
As much as we praise the late arrival of federal support for border-walls and heightened security to protect our international borders from being invaded by undocumented immigrants arriving daily from Mexico and Canada, we cannot lose focus on the domestic challenges to liberty and prosperity posed by immigration.
There is little to no security preventing the estimated 20 million undocumented immigrants already here from taking advantage of lax security between state borders. Undocumented immigrants are far more likely to take advantage of seasonal variations in the amount of work available in each state by migrating across these interstate borders. This matter becomes more pressing when we consider research by respected institutions such as Johns Hopkins and University of Arizona which suggest that undocumented immigrants who are often exploited while working long hours each week and so form few social ties binding them to the state they work in. This places them at an advantage to legal citizens of this country whose family, friends, and social support prevents them from migrating to new locations for work.
The Federal Accountability Coalition is exploring the feasibility of solving this problem by extending the international border walls to protect our state borders as well. We will soon announce the formation of a political action committee (PAC) to advance the construction and maintenance of this and other vital and patriotic infrastructure project.
