The Rule of Reason – Part 4
The Rapid Growth of Hispanics in America – The Good and the Bad
The majority of Hispanics coming into the Unites States are vital to our growth, whether they come here illegally or not, because they can outwork most American citizens, and that’s no joke. Ask American farmers. Ask American contractors. Ask homeowners whose lawns look immaculate. Hispanic workers are honest, strong, committed, and excellent at what they do. Toss them out of the U.S.A., and we’d have a major catastrophe. The fact is most U.S. citizens are too lazy to do the jobs Hispanic migrant workers do.
Gerald Ford once said, “There is an old saying, ‘The harder you work the luckier you get. I kind of like that definition of luck.’” Look at the rise to power they have achieved. In every walk of life, Hispanics are prospering. The debate over illegal immigration haunts many of these people who have lived here for years. Personally, I support a path to citizenship for those who contribute to the development of a strong American economy. I do not support breaking laws. But our government must pass laws that will allow our country to benefit from the services these workers continue to provide.
I’m tired of able-bodied American citizens drawing welfare and food stamps, while jobs in construction, farming, and other important services go begging for help. Without migrant workers from Mexico and Central America, there would be food shortages, construction delays, and prices skyrocketing due to labor shortages and costs.
A quote from 2 Thessalonians—The Message Bible. “10-13 Don’t you remember the rule we had when we lived with you? “If you don’t work, you don’t eat.” And now we’re getting reports that a bunch of lazy good-for-nothings are taking advantage of you. This must not be tolerated. We command them to get to work immediately—no excuses, no arguments—and earn their own keep. Friends, don’t slack off in doing your duty.”
This is a lesson our government should adhere to!
Now for the Bad.
Drug trafficking across our border with Mexico is a cancer. Mexican drug cartels embed into our communities and entice young Hispanics to join them. Our government hasn’t enforced the laws on the books today to aggressively guard our borders. The drug problem doesn’t stem from honest workers trying to earn a living. If we gave Mexican migrant workers temporary work visas and allowed them in through legal channels, we could focus on securing our borders against the real threat—the Drug Cartels. The United States should wage a “War on Terror” against the Drug Lords. I look to the day when Seal Team 6 takes out the leaders of Los Zetas, Sinaloa, and other major cartels. They poison our children and kill our people with their opiates. Mexican Drug Cartels destroy more American lives daily, than are killed in terrorist attacks around the world. Why aren’t we reacting concentrating on destroying them?
