American Renaissance recently linked to a dispatch.com article which related how deported illegal aliens return again and again. Looking through the comments, it was correctly pointed out that the welfare system is largely to blame for this; it is what attracts many of them to begin with. It was stated that the only way to address the situation is to go after those who hire illegal immigrants. Some recommended jail time prior to deportation.
Some comments recommended forms of corporal punishment, such as long and uncomfortable sea voyages, tattoos on their hands or even amputation. My own suggestion was that the first offense would have the culprit be flogged. Each time after that, the culprit would lose a finger. My comment was not published – and I completely understand why; this is not the type of image Amren wishes to convey to the world. There is supposed to be a difference between civilized white-nationalists and Muslim fanatics.
Yes, our image is important but, when it comes right down to it, the only solution that would yield immediate and lasting results is corporal punishment. Going after companies that hire illegal immigrants would do a lot of good – but many of those criminals work in the underground economy; they work for cash. The companies they work for might not even be registered with any government agency. Furthermore, increased supervision of employment practices would necessarily further bloat the leviathan we call “government”. There are already far too many hurdles, and risks, involved with hiring as it is. Add to this the fear that one’s company may inadvertently hire an illegal immigrant (which would inflict tremendous loses upon it) – and finding a job will be even more difficult than it already is. Doing away with the government welfare system would be a great step in the right direction and it would certainly curb illegal immigration – but do not most of those welfare beneficiaries also work under the table? Whatever income they get from welfare is a bonus to them; it allows them to send more money back home.
In the final analysis, the only real deterrent is actual physical pain. This is the only thing the criminal mind understands. If the U.S. were to implement such a policy, the “international community” would be in an uproar. We would be accused of trampling on “migrant rights” and violating numerous treaties and international laws. But the U.S. is still powerful enough to thumb its nose at them. A real leader would respond by saying, “this is what we must do to defend our nation. If you do not like it, advise your migrants to stay home!” At the same time, the U.S. would have to live up to its moral responsibilities; it would be required to cease all activities that undermine the economies of third-world countries. It would also be required to cease all bribes, threats and diplomatic leveraging when it comes to the internal affairs of other countries. It must no longer force the rest of the world to participate in its insane, and immoral, War on Some Drugs. If the U.S. were to do all these things, then not only might we save our nation, but we would also maintain the moral high ground. In the end, the rest of the world would respect us for it.
