As It Were Subject: What To Do About The Hoards On Our Southern Border The hunt for a solution by men of good will. What we could do is continue to turn them away, send them back to the country they came fromThat might be desirous but not always feasible. They now are in Mexico or those who have come across and being held in our own camps scattered about the country by ICE or the military. This solution is not going away. We will be facing this problem in the next decade as we faced it during the past four decades or longer. We need a solution. If we turn them away they will keep coming. Why? For so many years we have refused entry to the southern border then relented let what crossed, stay. Reagan did this and right on down the line till here we are still bombarded by immigrants who want entry into our country, thinking that someway they will get to stay or they can work it out. We could shoot them all similar in fashion as the Soviets for many years did to those who tried to flee their borders. The world condemned this and we would be condemned also on a world wide basis. We are not as strong militarily as we once were. Once in a while we have to try to be nice. What’s the solution? Nobody knows. Oh, we could send them all back but they don’t want to go back. Some now have no place to go back to. The rest would be Mexico’s problem. Mexico can’t handle their own government or people responsibly. I have long suspected the Mexican government is propped up by the drug lords. Suppose we were all humanist less the religious component of the word, Suppose Americans were made up mostly by men and women of good will, not to stretch that meaning too much. Supposed we really wanted to find a good solutions to the border crisis that would satisfy most of the population, and maybe be an asset to the country. Some of you are too young to remember but not too young to research a subject. There was another hoard once that had accumulated and was a serious problem for the British. Something over fifty-thousand jews were being held in several camps on Cypress. They were at that time a responsibility of the British. They didn’t want to go to an English country, they wanted to go to Palestine which was also under the wise guidance of the Crown. The united Nations came up with a plan: Confiscate some of the Palestinian’s land and give it to the jews. The jews, led by David Ben-Gurion, promptly declared the new land to be the State of Israel. We could consider taking a chunk of land somewhere in the mideast, by force if necessary and shipping the southern hoard there. We could consider the Indian problem whereby the American Indian having been completely defeated by the US military, were posted to large camps, called reservations, across the US. That could be solution. We could call them Ghettos, or Little Mexico or some appropriate name. Some now are clambering for open borders like they have in Europe; go anywhere you want at will because you are a citizen of the Americas. Not so fast. We could take an old airbase. We’ve got them scattered around the country, like the one in Big springs, Texas where they have been keeping some of the separated children of deported immigrants. Place one in, say Arizona, if necessary, one in Texas. Allow this southern hoard to be registered and placed in one or the other camps (airbases) as Labor Detainees. They could be self governing and declared as a sub-citizen, as a secondary or dedicated work citizen, with no voting rights or other rights except those given them by the US Government or its appointees. Perhaps organized and run similar to the old CCC, Citizens Conservation Corp, only mandatory. Supervised, of course, by a department of the US Government. These people could serve America. If they want to come to America, give them the conditions under which they can enter. Or we could put the military in charge. The Corp of Engineers could spearhead the rebuilding of our infostructure with a body of dedicated labor. Turn a negative into a positive. As it were. What say ye?
