Chaos Of Migration

EDITOR, The Tribune.

I believe that most people would agree that the dissolution of the traditional family has contributed significantly to most of our societal ills and criminality, but I cannot help considering the influence of another factor.

It is said that illegal immigrants come to our country to seek a better way of life. No person should be faulted for wanting to have better, but there is a right way to do it as shown by the pains legal immigrants take to find gainful employment!

What I have been sensing is a global trend for illegal immigrants to believe that they are entitled to break a country’s laws in their pursuit of “better”. Their poverty or hardship, in their mind it seems, makes their pursuit of a better life justifiable, even if it calls for breaking another country’s laws.

But am I entitled to enter another person’s home and take what I want because I have six children that I cannot support properly or because I have not taken advantage of educational opportunities freely given in this country and am unemployable as a result?

We have, with the credulousness of the now extinct Arawaks, viewed this breach of our sovereignty as acceptable without considering several simple things.

Firstly , when an immigrant enters this country illegally they have knowingly and wilfully disregarded the laws of a sovereign country and believe that they have the right to do so.

No man enters another man’s house without his knowledge and believes he is doing the right thing! They believe that their personal situation and desire to seek a better way of life are far more important than any of the laws of this country. At the centre of their drive to get here is pure self-interest and survival.

Having risked life and limb in pursuit of a better way of life, why would we expect people so driven to survive, while having no regard for law and order to magically become law-abiding occupants of this country. In fact, so strong is the desire to survive, that circumventing laws becomes a way of life, encouraging corruption and increasing disorder on a societal level.

These same ones soon scrounge up and save enough money to send home to finance the passage of the next wave of disregarders of our laws and sovereignty. And so it has been for decades and so has the social disorder multiplied.

Parents with this survival at all costs mentality will naturally pass this trait on to their children, intentionally or vicariously. I can only wonder how much this has contributed to the lawless mindset that pervades this culture.

It is my view that the “importation” of large numbers of uneducated, illegal immigrants with a reckless disregard for our sovereignty and laws, who do not speak the language and who will do anything to survive, has contributed significantly to the social and moral chaos that currently exists in this country!

Very well put and a good rebuttal to a recent 'bleeding hearts' Insight. This is indeed a monumental problem to solve, one that politicians do not possess the wherewithal to actually address but to which lip service is paid from time to time.

Never mind the Drama King , There will never be any shanty towns where he lives or Lyford cay where Bacon lives or on the Eastern road,

But where poor black folks live it is all right. because they do not matter much.
