Ike style. the unknown policies that cause the repatration of illegals and if we learn from history shows that corrup american citizens and corrupt government officials are the cause of the illegal problem

[LEFT][SIZE=2][SIZE=2]Justice Louis D. Brandeis, quotes about Tyranny:[/SIZE]
[SIZE=2]Crime is contagious. If the government becomes a law breaker, it breeds contempt for the law.[/SIZE][/LEFT]

so illegals DID brake the law and some here used metaphors such as =
"how would you feel if someone broke into your house without your permission and practically started asking for services such as breakfeast in bed"
but using my quote above I can add to the quote, who is breaking the law and showing by example? are we at fault for electing the same corrupted officials?

back to my topic IKE STYLE
Braceros: History, Compensation - Rural Migration News | Migration Dialogue
Between 1942 and 1964, some 4.6 million Mexicans were admitted to do farm work. Many Mexicans returned year after year, but the one to two million who participated gained US work experience, and some decided to continue migrating illegally after the program ended. The Bracero program was small during the war years; admissions peaked at 62,000 in 1944, meaning that less than two percent of the four million US hired workers were Braceros.

pause before I continue 2% percent were legal authorized workforce? who was putting the standards of percentages?

ok then Ike enter the scenerio,

To reduce the number of "*******s," a President's Commission on Migratory Labor in 1951 recommended employer sanctions, fines on employers who knowingly hired illegal workers, and a halt to the practice of legalizing illegal workers after they found US jobs. The Mexican government endorsed the Commission's recommendations, agreeing "that the ******* exodus could be stopped only when [US] employers were penalized for hiring them." WHAT was Mexico our foe or against illegal immigration at this point and did they have a common sense view on how to solve it?

Federal Observer Articles - Federal Observer

Increasing grievances from various Mexican officials in the United States and Mexico prompted the Mexican government to rescind the bracero agreement and cease the export of Mexican workers. The United States Immigration Service, under pressure from various agricultural groups, retaliated against Mexico in 1951 by allowing thousands of illegals to cross the border, arresting them, and turning them over to the Texas Employment Commission, which delivered them to work for various grower groups in Texas and elsewhere. Over the long term, this action by the federal government, in violation of immigration laws and the agreement with Mexico, caused new problems for Texas. Between 1944 and 1954, "the decade of the *******," the number of illegal aliens coming from Mexico increased by 6,000 percent. It is estimated that in 1954 before Operation ******* got under way, more than a million workers had crossed the Rio Grande illegally. Cheap labor displaced native agricultural workers, and increased violation of labor laws and discrimination encouraged criminality, disease, and illiteracy. According to a study conducted in 1950 by the President's Commission on Migratory Labor in Texas, the Rio Grande valley cotton growers were paying approximately half of the wages paid elsewhere in Texas. In 1953 a McAllen newspaper clamored for justice in view of continuing criminal activities by *******s.

"Most analyses conclude that the Mexican government had the most influence over Bracero programs in their first years, before networks developed that enabled Mexicans to migrate to the US on their own. The US government feared that Mexico would block US recruitment and worker exits if some of the guarantees they wanted were not included in the program. Thus the anomaly: during most of the 1942-64 period, Braceros had more wage and benefit guarantees than US hired farm workers. However, growers gained the upper hand in 1954, after the tussle at the border, and Bracero program rules were relaxed so much that illegal immigration dropped sharply."

fundamentals of capitalism once again Mexico proving that even do it was a third world country morally it had good intentions. operation ******* was a cover up to teach Mexico a lesson that WE WANTED free exploited labor without the regulations that Mexico was proposing.

and what was Mexico proposing? SAME WAGES, PROTECT INDIVIDUALS FROM EXPLOITERS and again by the laws of consume and demand. If we had paid Mexican labores the same wages they would not have been attractive to the farmers that hired them correct? and again a lot of people in here can say
LETS DEPORT THEM IKE STYLE, well did we learn our lesson from IKE STYLE
I dont think so again if we paid illegals the same wage and protection from explotetion
there would be no illegals since OUR EMPLOYERS WOULD only hired locals
instead of having to go thru the hassle of combating so much cultural issues.

SO IKE STYLE IS NOTHING BUT A COVER UP, to elimanate Mexicos leverage on the bracero program
