Mexicans stream across America's southern borders. Why? Because NAFTA (the North American Free Trade Agreement) and globalized corporate interests have sabotaged their economy and made their country pretty much unbearable for the average working stiff there.
Iraqis, Afghans and Palestinians are flooding into Europe. Why? Because Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld and their past and present cohorts Ariel Sharon and Ehud Olmert have totally screwed up the entire Middle East. According to the London Telegraph, "Palestinian infighting, almost daily Israeli air strikes, and a steadily worsening economic situation triggered by an international aid boycott has made life unbearable for many Palestinians. Those who can are leaving."
According to a recent report from the Iraq Slogger, "Scores of Iraqi men, women and children gathered on the pavement of Baghdad's central Salihiyah area waiting for the big grey bus to take them to neighbouring Syria and help them flee their country's violence. 'Staying in Iraq is like committing suicide,' said Hala Numan Jabre, a 41-year-old mother of three girls as she threw her six coloured bags onto the bus. 'There is no safe life in Iraq, it's like a jungle. There are no public services, there is no rule of law, and everywhere there is killing and kidnapping. That is why we've decided to take our daughters away until things get better, God willing,' Hala, a teacher of English, said."
What to do? Well, we don't have to worry about the birds flying south any more because with global warming, more and more of them are staying home.
And if you want to stop the illegal migration of aliens up from Mexico, just give THEM a reason to stay home too. And listen up, EU. If you don't want to be completely overrun with illegal aliens either, don't even bother with increased border patrols. We've already tried that here in America. They don't work. However, there is a much less expensive and much more effective solution to hand -- just get Bush and Cheney the hell out of the Middle East so that the people who live there and like it there can stay there without fear of getting blown up! End of problem.
