A Modern Modest Proposal Essay
The border between Mexico and the United States has been left open, leaving the entire nation accessible to disease, violence, and economic ruin. Being able to come and go as they please, illegal Mexican immigrants have came to U.S. in the millions, and with them they have brought terrors to our citizens. Every year they smuggle millions of pounds of cocaine, and once settled within our communities, their gangs and criminals begin to murder, steal, rob, and commit other crimes, creating a threat to our society. Americans are unemployed, and live in poverty, while each year hundreds of thousands of illegals join the millions of others who have come to America to steal jobs from those who deserve them. Millions of dollars also go to providing health care and education to these animals. For this problem I see only one solution that can save this nation from destruction. Due to Mexico’s small military and lack of power, Mexico is just waiting to be overthrown.
By allowing the United States to control the region and to properly use the land and people, the creation of The United Mexican States, and enslavement of the Mexican people, is the only viable option to eliminate the terrible effects of illegal immigration. This also gives us an opportunity to expand this great nation even more. Nearly twenty times the size of the Mexican military’s and significantly more advanced in technology, the U.S. would not have any difficulty securing control of the country. Bombings in areas of high population, like Mexico City and Ecatepec, would help bring the population down to a more manageable size. Once we have control, the prisoners would be grouped into large towns to work for no pay. These militarily monitored working cities would be far from the rest of the United States, to keep the citizens safe and to eliminate the risk of escape. Only a few small changes in the constitution would have to be be made in order to make this possible.
First the abolishment of the Thirteenth Amendment, which bans slavery. The second major law that would have to go would be the Fourteenth Amendment that gives all people born in the U.S. equal citizenship. After these small changes it would be easy to put this into effect. The first and most obvious benefit of this plan is the elimination of the two thousand mile border between the U.S. and Mexico. Guards would no longer need to patrol this long stretch of land. This leaves more troops available to focus on things like the war in the middle east. The new southern line would be 561 miles bordering Guatemala and 155 miles with Belize. With a much shorter southern border, no more illegals could gain access into our country by jumping the border. Next, with the control of the military, the Mexican people would be very beneficial.
The workers could easily be kept working at the most efficient rate. Drug production and dealing could easily be taken over by the government, if so, the quality of the drugs would be improved, and the profits much higher. This would provide even more money for our government. Any diseases that the workers could possibly spread and hurt the working production would be euthanized. Thirdly, although it may seem like this solution would actually take more jobs from Americans, it would increase the standard of living. The American people will have a higher paying job in management or in an office, with no labor required. This will happened because our economy would raise at a high rate because the country’s manufacturing would be done for free. Companies would grow and new factories would be built, resulting in the availability of managerial and office jobs.
Products would be produced for next to nothing. Currently, due to the poor government, large amounts of Mexico’s natural resources remain available for use. Nearly a quarter of the land area is forests. Millions of acres of trees that could be cut down and sold for timber. This land can easily be overturned, supplying many new sources of income and saving our country billions of dollars. Clearly, this proposal is the most effective plan of action compared to other solutions. Other types of action all have not worked, and are a waste of time and money. Increases in the number of patrols at the border and use of technology will never be enough to guard the entire border. It is very fortunate I devised this plan, and now we can stop trying the other useless ideas.
By taking over Mexico and enslaving the people, not only would the effects of illegal immigrants coming into our country be removed, profits would be made. I see no choice but to convert the entire Mexican people into slaves to be used for the benefit of our nation. Other than my hope to see all future problems be avoided, I have no personal interest in this issue. Being a born American, and not Latin American descent, I am not biased toward the Mexicans who cross our border; if this plan seems to favor these people in any way it is because of the advantages that will occur.
