Dissolving The Electorate With Illegal Immigration

Cross Posted From CommonSense America 

The issue of illegal immigration brings up many theories as to why our elected officials have allowed this massive illegal migration to continue. Charges of greed, globalization, and cheap labor are thrown around.

It’s true that there are many people lined up to get their share of the illegal immigration pie. From immigration attorneys, pro-illegal activist groups, elected officials, big businesses, some labor unions, communist groups, open border groups, to even the Mexican government, they all come forward in hopes of having their pockets filled on the backs of the illegal immigrants.

But a poem came to mind as I was trying to figure out why in the world our elected officials would not only allow this illegality but, in fact, become quite complicit. And even though all of the charges of greed, cheap labor, etc. are valid reasons, there may be another.

This satirical poem was written by Bertolt Brech after the 1953 East German uprisings:

The Solution
Bertolt Brecht

After the uprising of the 17th June
The Secretary of the Writer’s Union
Had leaflets distributed in the Stalinallee
Stating that the people
Had forfeited the confidence of the government
And could win it back only
By redoubled efforts. Would it not be easier
In that case for the government
To dissolve the people
And elect another?

Have our elected officials decided that rather than try to win back the confidence of the American people, they will elect another?
