We have a country and a culture hundreds of years in the making, and we can't just let millions on millions of poorly educated, impoverished people who speak funny pouring in illegally, taking away our jobs and becoming a burden on our schools and our hospitals. And we certainly don't want them bringing their lawless ways into our towns and cities.
Okay, we know that they have big problems-massive unemployment, played out farms, chronic drought and inadequate water, non-competitive businesses, incredible pollution and environmental degradation, and those terrible storms that keep striking their coastal regions.
But face it, most of their problems are of their own making. In the end, it's largely their own fault their country is in such a mess.
They have an abundance of natural resources-oil, iron, uranium, and natural gas--but they've allowed a corrupt ruling elite to pilfer and destroy everything. The ruling party just steals elections and long ago turned the government into a tool of the rich and the corporations.
Still, while we can sympathize with these people's plight (and certainly we should send aid), we cannot simply let hordes of them just slip across our historically open border.
Our overstretched border patrol officers try their best to stop illegal entry, but how can they be expected to police hundreds and hundreds of miles of rugged terrain? It is a hopeless task.
After all, the Americans themselves resorted to the same thing back in 2006, because of all the Mexicans fleeing to their own country.
Now that global warming has turned most of the United States into a dust bowl, now that some of that country's major cities-Los Angeles, New York, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Boston, Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, Houston, New Orleans and Baltimore-- have joined Atlantis, and now that corrupt one-party authoritarian rule and the greed of the ruling elite has destroyed the American economy, desperate Americans are trying to flee to Canada's cooler climes.
We Canadians can't allow that to happen.
Let's get to work on that wall, eh?
