Causa de Pendejadas Part I: Are 20,000 of America’s Credentialed Journalists “criminally stupid”?
Now that Donald Trump took his invited trip to Mexico and returned via Phoenix, Arizona, and where he gave his self-aggrandized speech on Immigration, the news media outlets, and in deference to Trump–the print and electronic—these, credentialed Journalists. seemingly forgot to pronounce or even address our traditional Common Sense, writ large, and vis-à-vis this inherent and historical ‘reality’ as explained by Trump and his campaign’s stable of well-heeled propagandists. To wit, the cost or economic impact from Trump’s Causa de Pendejada has yet to measured or aptly discussed in our public debate.
Therefore, the starting point our public debate commences with the 11 million undocumented immigrants and where 75% of these immigrants are women and with each woman being the parent of approximate three children born here in our United States.
Therefore, the notion of deporting America’s 24 million children, alongside their parents to all points South of our wonderful Sonoran Desert poses both a moral, political and economic catastrophe onto both the United States and Mexico, given that Mexico is a nation of 130 million citizens.
And if one takes into consideration the cost of food, housing, clothing, education, and medical care, and that’s just for starters, in addressing this triangulation for a seminal citizenship and where nation-building is not a Construct acceptable to the Conservative-oriented white nationalist view, since the alt-right movement has co-opted the Establishment’s and our nation’s Third Stereotype and that being: “I don’t care…I’ll be dead…So what’s your point” has now come full circle, and now must be included in our public debate, and prior to November’s election.
In closing, we, our nation’s military vets and in particular, Chicano and Native Americans, don’t expect the mass media outlets and their well-paid employees, to venture far-off the their single-spaced page and as dictated by their well-regarded editors and done in the guise of self-restraint. Therefore, we are left with the Internet to as our default position for espousing and challenging America’s Decency and Decrepitude, and which is, nonetheless, easily accomplished. Obviously, America’s 20,000 credentialed Journalists aren’t “listening.”
So, let us begin by “calling out” the PBS News Hour program and followed by New York Times, the Washington Post as well as the national Sunday Morning Chatter Box Programs.
Causa de Pendejadas Part II: Is it Amnesty or a Pathway to Citizenship?
With the Republicans facing their political demise given the level of the impending impact of demographics among Chicanos/Hispanics/Native Americans, the immigration debates are now having to be coalesced among the Reformicons on the Right and among their innovative acolytes and where elections—won or lost, are going to be determined via the demographics for being non-white. And are the Reformicons up to this public debate. Thusly, today’s lackluster Conservative Principles, are being challenged in a variety of innovative manners.
Take, for example, the future of any adherent to Conservative Principles will have to profess to higher government spending for over 21 million American-born children when being deported via the demeaning Trumpista clarion call. And for those among us who are thoroughly familiar with immigration and on a “first hand” basis, demonstrates that of the 11 million undocumented immigrants amongst us, 4 million are men and 7 million are women. As such, the men travel back and forth to their countries of origin and the women do not, given that each woman has to render the requisite care and support to each of their three children born here in the United States.
And it’s each of these 21 million children—citizens all, that will change demographics and political calibrations for the adherents to their Conservative Principles. And inwardly, will these Principles outweigh the Racism espoused by the current residents of America’s political gutter?
And given that Trump’s nativist-oriented speech in Phoenix, Arizona, of this past week, the Principles of Conservativism have been called into question. Thus, from the perspective or standpoint of a perspective of the non-Trumpistas, a “softening” or a “waffling” is not in the deck of cards that Donald Trump has built and long before the debates of earlier this year among the 17 candidates.
Thus, a seminal of failure of Conservative Principles where bigotry and racism has now become the dominant feature, is causing the foresight necessary to understand our national spending of taxpayer dollars on immigration, writ large.
And this iconic feature has no salient or given voice, as yet in our public debate, and will these deported children be provided the sustenance to survive as well retain their American citizenship after spending many years in their mother’s nation of origin? And our challenge as Chicano military vets is to advocate that our National Security and Defense Schematic must include these 21 million kids given our history for “protecting and defending our Constitution” despite the reprehensible behavior of the self-victimization of the wrong-headedness of our fellow citizens.
In closing, how these 21million children facing deportation are to be treated in the future, will determine the overall demise of our white Democracy and the impending or onset of our brown Democracy. Demographics are what they are, and our white Democracy is now facing our nation’s proverbial cul-de-sac. And with November’s election premised on the voters’ angst and anger or belief in the “trust” personified by Trump and Clinton, both candidates should be required to address our future as an intelligent and competent Democracy. And if not, demographics will determine our future, either for good or bad.
Note: The latest political salvo being aggressively propagated is the notion or meme for/of “Legalization without a pathway to citizenship finesses one of the political objections, the fear among Republicans is that amnesty would result in a slug of Democratic voters.”
Causa de Pendejadas Part III: Trump’s Immigration Costs
Without yet any questions posed as to the “costs” for deporting undocumented immigrants, we the Chicanos here in the Sonoran Desert, have the responsibility to challenge the anti-immigrant voices to address the reality of the anticipated costs for deporting 21 million American-born kids during the next 17 years or until these children turn 18 years of age. And if not, we can no longer speak of anyone’s moral turpitude, since we have conveniently ignored our apt citizenship and the entailed responsibilities for empowering Decency, writ large.
Take, for example, the cost associated with housing, food, clothing, medical care, transportation, education and the associated costs of living in a foreign country, is sizable. And when compared to the Trump vision for building “the wall” is figured at a one-time cost of$25 billion, these costs associated for living a foreign country is far more significant, when done on an annual basis and further, extended for the anticipated next 17 years.
To wit, the following taxpayer subsidized payment to the undocumented immigrant parent of three children that were born here in the United States. Thus, the cost regarding 21 million children is truly pertinent to both the Executive and Legislative branches of our national government, as well as our taxpayer pocketbook.
…$600 monthly/$7200 annually X 21,000,000 kids.
…$1,000 monthly/$12,000 annually X 21,000,000 kids.
…$1,500 monthly/$18,000 annually X 21,000,000 kids.
Now, with the Presidential Debates to begin later this month and into early October, I am not expecting any of the designated Moderators to pose the question to each of the Candidates as to the “costs” anticipated and of course, to any of our Elected Officials prior to these debates. And just in these past few days, one of the Moderators, particularly, from Fox News has stipulated that he has no responsibility or duty to “fact challenge” each of the candidates, and with this irresponsible behavior, having a Moderator refusing to challenge the “costs” of deportation, whether in large scale or not, tells us that we have no “influence” in the decision-making relative to immigration, and therefore, we have to factor into our “vote” our concretized concerns, among the many, come our November’s election.
Consequently, our Vote is of far greater importance than to just our lonely self since our deported children have no one to come forward on their behalf.
