SLAVERY, 2010 STYLE

Perhaps a solution to the illegal immigrant issue could be found in the 13th Amendment.

Ratified in 1865, the 13th says: "Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime . . . shall exist within the United States . . . ." Thus, to punish illegitimate aliens for their crime of unlawfully entering our country they could be:


* Forced (involuntary servitude) to work on state/local road gangs,

and/or

* Sold, as slaves, by the government to "big AG" for picking crops.


Whoa, before you hop on a PC, liberal, bleeding-heart horse please consider what they've been doing to us. I call it involuntary servitude when American tax-payers are forced to pay the health care, welfare, education, etc., for Mexicans and others criminally in this country. You can call it charity, humanitarian or compassionate aid - with your money, but when you punish me - without my ever committing any crime - that's slavery.
