IH Debate Points for US Govt.
Hello everyone! CJ here. Sorry for the late post on the points for IH Debate on the US Govt. It is a little scrambled, so hope you don't mind. =)
We are for the building of walls.
1) Accompanied by the building of the walls are modern equipments such as barb wires and radar-scoping technology, which allows the U.S Border Patrol to oversee the “invasion” or “intrusion” of Mexican immigrants into the United States land.
2) Rapid increase in population. Population grew by some 33 million since 90s and estimated to reach 420 million by 2050. There is a current population of 300 million, which results in environmental problems. The depletion of resources and more environmental pollutants released into the atmosphere
3)Bringing and allowing illegal entry into USA and presence down minimally will serve other interests such as: -Curbing crime and aid in the war against terrorism -Raising labour standards and job application for own citizens -Easing overcrowding in low income housing and schools, reducing social service costs
4) By allowing unlimited entry of Mexican immigrants, we are setting a bad example and this may encourage other citizens from other countries to enter the U.S illegally. With our bad example, many undesirable consequences may follow, such as an increasing crime rates.
5) Immigrants are classified as “illegal”, without authorization or inspection, staying beyond the authorized period after legal entry, which clearly violates terms of legal entry. Therefore, the U.S. Government should possess every right to protect itself from an “unrecognized invasion or threat” unless otherwise stated.
6) The tightening of border enforcement has clearly disrupted the traditional circular movement of many migrant workers from Mexico by increasing the costs and risks of crossing the borders, thereby reducing their rate of return migration to Mexico.
7) By not recognizing the increasing difficulty of the problem, the U.S. government is not being fair to many Mexicans who cross the border legally, and the large and increasing number of illegal migrants might result in a stereotype among the Mexicans, with them being seen as frequent “lawbreakers”.
8) We have “work permits” for citizens of other nationalities to enter the United States legally, but we do not encourage or compel with the idea of illegal immigration.
9) Without consistent detection and tough penalties for illegal employment and cross-border traffic, it will remain next to impossible for the border patrol to halt the influx of millions of illegal aliens.
10) The Mexican population in the U.S. has been growing rather significantly and we would like to remind the Mexican Government that we are not responsible for the welfare of their citizens. As faced by the following situation, it seems that the U.S. is held responsible for Mexican citizens.
11) By not enforcing the laws, we are encouraging outrageous acts as “They are never going to stop us from crossing” Julio Cesar Cutierrez, a 21-year-old Mexican who claims he swam across the borders for 3 times.
