The scam, at least to my mind, is that the parents get to stay
because the kid is born here. The parents should be sent home, the kid
can stay if that is their wish. The kid is welcome back any time but the
parents can't jump the queue.
What part is complicated? The kid is a citizen and can stay if the
parents want to abandon them (which sorta indicates that the kid was
essentially a way to green card instead of a kid). The parents want to
keep the kid, then they take the kid home with them.
So you are essentially saying that most people of Mexican origin get
preggers solely to get a green card. Sorta racist outlook to me.
Split the difference then. The kid has to go back, but retains
citizenship for when M and/or Dad qualify for return or they hit 18.
From my reading, that is essentially how many European countries do it.
You are saying that most of the parents would leave their kids
behind, otherwise there would be no increase in public assistance. But
we would eliminate a layer of public assistance relative to that spent
on the parents. 100% of the parents a most of the kids since most would
take them back with them.
What makes you think they _aren't_ willing to learn English?
Learning languages takes time.
They're just further back on the assimilation curve. Give them time.
Gee whiz guys, it's not as if the Irish, Italians and other waves of immigrants
were able to instantly abandon their native language within days of arriving.
They had stores they could go to and speak their own language, just as the
do now. They _still_ do.
On a per-capita basis, Canada takes in between 10 and 50 _times_ as many
immigrants as the US does. 1 in five people in this country are immigrants -
double the US rate. Accents abound.
Certainly, each wave or group has problems. But they go away.
_No_ big problems here.
