Immigration Policy by deaddays Immigration Policy by deaddays
Hey boys and girls! It's time for current events! YAY! (Don't worry, a new Dead Days is coming soon)
Alright, so the Collegian (the college newspaper I illustrate for) is back in full swing and this is the first piece of the new year.
Ya see, PRESIDENT BUSH (holds for applause... ha) wants to pass this new immigration policy in America that basically allows many illegal immigrants in the states to keep their jobs and not get deported back to Mex, thus allowing those workers to possibly apply for permanent residency and patching up relations with Mexico.
The Problem with that is that, the author of the piece wrote, is that it helps kill our economy! One of the reasons is because that something like $10 Billion is being sent OUT of the U.S. to the immigrants families back home each year! That's $10 Billion no longer in the U.S.
This was really a tough piece for me to do, because for years, my parents (and half my brothers and sisters) were illegal immigrants out of Mexico doing just that, and without that, my family wouldn't have eaten. So I sucked it up and stayed subjective without being cynical. I'm really happy with the piece. It's almost like a infographic! It's fun to do things with political cartoons other than one old guy in a suit talking to another old guy in a suit. Anyway, Thanks for reading!
P.S. Hee! Lookit Unki Sam fall! Hee!

The war in Iraq, nay, over the top milirary spending in general, wastes far more US money than what legal/illegal mexicans send back to their countries. However, like you, my parents too were illegal immigrant (from guatemala and el salvador, respectively) from when the were 9 or so until my fathe was 16 or so and my mother in her early 20's. However, wile I do feel some sympathy for those who cross illegal, it s still a crime and should not be done. It not only has caused problems for the US but for themselves and their old countries and families too. You think a bit of money honestly helps countries like Mexico? The US needs to stay out of Latin American poltics and the vast majority of pepl in countries like Mexico actually need to start having a voice if change is ever to make countries like Mexico livable for the average mexican.

Come on guys, he has nothing left to do, think about mexicans ok? to enter in USA a mexican have to do many things to get in, an American don't have to do so many things to get in Mexico, and have to do too much things because the fear to terrorists, so I think there's some justice here, not complete but there's. Long time ago Mexico supports USA allowing american trademarks like mcdonalds, burger king, kimberly clark, etc. giving them lands. So, let's be realistic, you need us and we need you, that's the true, I'm mexican and I'm realistic, so let's live in peace, damn!
