In the film, “All The President’s Men” the character known as “Deep Throat” advised the reporters to “Follow the money!” In conducting any investigation- motives are essential to determine what convinced those under investigation to take the actions that they took or inhibited them from taking actions in the first place. My article for “The Social Contract” focused on the various individuals and groups of individuals who are, in a very real sense, profiting from our nation’s ongoing failures to secure its borders and enforce our nation’s immigration laws- laws that were enacted to achieve two critically important goals- to save American lives and save American jobs. These two fundamental goals should make the issue of immigration law enforcement a true “No brainer!” However, unbridled greed can motivate people to do truly horrible things that fly in the face of commonsense and decency. Immigration is certainly no exception!
As a consequence of these failures, our nation’s security has been jeopardized, hundreds of thousands of transnational criminals and gang members have entered our nation and set up operations in towns and cities across our nation and thousands of lives have been lost.
