So What Would an America Without Illegal Immigrants Really Look Like?

April 24, 2010

What exactly would America be like without illegal aliens? Advocates for Amnesty are constantly telling the public that the millions of illegal aliens working in meat-processing plants, construction, restaurants, hotels, and other “jobs Americans won’t do” are vital to our nation’s economy.  So let’s run the exercise and see what horrors would really happen?

 Before I begin any what if scenario it’s important to define terms. I am talking here about illegal aliens, not mere “immigrants.” If legal immigrants were left, we would miss the services of physicians, nurses, computer programmers, writers, actors, musicians, entrepreneurs of all stripes, and some airline pilots…as well as the CEO of Google. That would be more than an inconvenience, but it won’t happen because legal immigrants are already protected by our courts. This thought experiment is about exactly what would happen if illegal aliens were suddenly deported in mass and prevented from ever returning.

It’s a frightening scenario! I can tell you without the millions of illegal aliens the nation would most certainly collapse.

The medical system would collapse! Hospital emergency rooms across the southwest would have about 20-percent fewer patients, and there would be 12 million fewer people without health insurance. OBGYN wards in Denver would have 24-percent fewer deliveries and Los Angeles’s maternity-ward deliveries would drop by 40 percent and maternity billings to Medi-Cal would drop by 66 percent. The horrors of suddenly having easy access to hospitals and a surplus of doctors would clearly cause the system to buckle under the strain of having people actually pay their freaking bills. 

The effects on our largest cities would also be grim. Youth gangs would see their membership drop by 50 percent in many states preventing masses of junkies from getting their much needed fixes of pot, crack and meth. In most southwestern cites child-molestation cases would drop by 34 percent and auto theft by 40 percent.  In the Four Corners area and the surrounding Indian reservations, the methamphetamine epidemic would slow down dramatically and the sacred hills of the Navajo would no long need the DEA’s constant over flights and gun battles. And if illegal aliens stayed home—in Mexico, Guatemala, Brazil, and 100 other countries—the Border Patrol would have 12,000 fewer apprehensions.

 Most states would suddenly be faced with the horrors of financial windfalls saving from illegal’s who would no longer access any public services, because illegal aliens cost the states over $1 billion annually according to the best estimates.  School classrooms would have fewer students if illegal aliens and the children of illegal’s were to be deported, and Americas high schools’ dropout rate would fall.  Jails and prisons would have 10-percent fewer inmates and many other towns would not need to build so many new jails to accommodate the overcrowding.  Our highway patrol and local sheriffs would have far fewer DUI arrests and there would be a dramatic decline in rollovers of vanloads of illegal aliens on highways. Local government would suddenly face the prospect of having millions of dollars saved.

The economic impacts would take time to sort out but they would be damaging to the economy since thousands of workers and small contractors in the construction industry across America would have their jobs back, the jobs given to illegal workers because they work for lower wages and no benefits. Hundreds of employers actually might be force to hire legal residents and pay them their due wages. Back in the late 1950’s the nation’s tomato harvest threatened with the horrors of losing its labor force during Operation Wetback and had to actually hire people at high wages to harvest the crops giving them a stable income and a trade. Within three years however the horror grew when tomato harvesters were invented and replaced the workers altogether while dropping the price of tomatoes by nearly half. The horror of having to pay less for produce as harvesters replaced million of illegal farm workers would likely case billions of dollars in saving every year.    

 On Sunday, Catholic Churches in  many states might have 20-percent fewer parishioners at Mass if all illegals were deported placing several clerics job’s in danger. The resulting end of the money stream would result in a massive horrible downsizing of the Catholic Church in America and an end to much of its political power. This is of course neither the root of the catholic churches advocacy for special “human-rights” for illegal nor the reason many priests and nuns are especially devoted to that cause, they do it for morality and decency.

The horrors are so great I promise that I will fight tooth and nail for full amnesty for all Illegal aliens!

    This blog is embarrassing. You obviously have never been in contact with an undocumented worker. They are some of the most hard working and humble people on this planet even when they have to deal with arrogant assholes like you. They are not all involved in gangs. They do not all have several children out of wedlock and the large majority do not abuse drugs. They simply are in the US in search of better life, because they love their families and will do anything to make ends meet. Why don’t you talk about all of the “legal” Americans, specifically the ones who were born in the US, who sit on their asses all day collecting unemployment? Undocumented workers sure aren’t. They are doing the jobs that Americans would never choose to do at a wage so low it’s embarrassing. And if you want to argue that, put your money where your mouth is and go pick blueberries for 10 hours straight at $2 a bucket in 100 degree weather. It’s people like you that make good people like me look bad.

    I’m really not sure if your for real or not there Mel. Sarcasm is hard to detect across the internet and the points you have made are so tired as to be cliché. And frankly more than a little embarrassing, one American to another, I expect my countrymen to be better educated on a subject and not just a propaganda drone for the left. If you actually believe what you just wrote, that’s probably worse.

    But just for fun I’ll play.

    Your points are totally irrelevant. That’s a bit brief isn’t it?
    Hmm, ok well hows this, your points are leftist red herrings meant to distract from the real issue of the rapidly evaporating national sovereignty of the USA. They simply ignore the issue that the illegal immigrant has brazenly violated the laws of the nation they now inhabit, nor do they address the obvious national security threat of having 20+ million random people milling across our southern boarder with nary a clue of who they are or their intentions.

    The human story is compelling but literally of no issue when dealing with these people. They have violated the most basic of courtesies. Their presence is literally identical to the situation should I decide to come live your house. Sure I’ll clean the toilet, and mop the floors, but I’ll be sleeping in your bed and eating your food and driving your car when I feel like it. I don’t believe you would appreciate that very much, in fact in Texas you could use force or deadly force to stop me from doing so, because its a violation of your basic human rights, just like the illegals coming here and consuming our resources, taking jobs and more basically violating our nation and thumbing their noses at the collected people of this nation. And just as you should use force or deadly force to remove a dangerous interloper from your house, the government should use force and deadly force to remove this extremely dangerous infection of illegals as soon as possible.

    By the by, when I picked blueberries in the 110* Texas weather (with 90% humidity I might add) I was paid $6 a bucket and made more than $12 an hour, not that I need to justify my opinion by being willing to do menial labor. I’ve worked and studied and am college educated so I don’t have to do crap like that to survive, its hardly my fault when other people fail at life and are forced into a position like that. Nor is whether or not Americans are willing to do a job relevant to this discussion.

    Your welcome to argue, I won’t edit your replies or anything, but please stay on topic.
