One More Indicator That Immigration is Broken

Near the bottom of an article which details a list of accused lawbreakers comes this nugget:

Ismael Morales-Montero, 28, has pleaded not guilty to an indictment charging him with possession of a fraudulent immigration document and use of an immigration document not lawfully issued. If convicted of both charges, Morales-Montero faces up to 15 years in prison.

Come here to the United States without permission (or overstay your permission, as the case may be). Lie about your status–but make it an official lie with paperwork–and if we find you guilty, you can stay here for up to 15 years. Granted, your movement will be restricted, but all expenses are on us.

Can we not see what we are doing to ourselves?

  1. At a time when China is moving toward super-power status it seems increasingly prudent to consider merging several countries into one mega-power capable of exerting quieting strength over a burgeoning economic megalith under one President and one Congress.

    It’s time for all Americans to enjoy the protection of law by being part of one nation: erase the artificial borders and grant Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness to all the people of North America…Mexico, Central America, Canada, even the Caribbean if they’ll have us.

    ip is not a New World Order guy, does not support the North American Union (god bless you please, Mr. Roddenberry) and believes that the US Constitution is a big enough canvas in order to paint a more perfect masterpiece, a big enough score for all to sing. End the violence. End the drug wars.

    1. Larry,

      Quite a grand idea. However, the borders are far from artificial. They speak to remarkably different countries, cultures, and most importantly–the understanding of the rule of law.

      When one looks at how the re-combination of the Germanies almost did them in–and they had so much in common–one sees the absolute foolishness of trying to unite the parties you mention.
