The United States Should Annex Mexico: An Illegal Immigrant Solution

Before you start laughing and telling me off as a crackpot, take a few moments to read through this article; even if this were an option on the ballots, it would take years to fully implement. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the new United States of America.

It’s amazing to read of the billions of dollars poured into so-called Border Security with Mexico. Here we are, dumping copious amounts of cash into programs and technologies meant to keep out people who are truly following the American dream.

The “illegal immigrants” that enter the U.S. through the U.S. – Mexico border every year are here primarily to get a ridiculously low wage job that no other American would take, in order to send the money back home. Nothing about that is dishonest, threatening, or detrimental to the U.S. economy save perhaps the fact that the money earned is being sent out of the country. That one minor defect can be solved by annexing Mexico. That way, the money will stay within the U.S. contributing wholly to the U.S. economy.

These illegal aliens cross scorching deserts, evade zealous U.S. Border Patrol officers, travel (usually) more than 100 miles on foot and brave grievous injury and even death to come to the U.S. for a�job? Name one terrorist who went through all that to come to the U.S. just to get an honest job. The U.S. does a better job of keeping illegal immigrants from Mexico out than it does keeping terrorists out.

One might argue that annexing Mexico we’re simply pushing the barrier to a different location. That’s true to a certain extent. However, Mexico is bordered on one side by the U.S. On another side is the Pacific Ocean. On a third side is the Gulf of Mexico, and the fourth border would be a patch of rugged mountains and forests near Guatemala, about 750 miles long. Compare the 2000 miles long border with a stretch of land 750 miles long, which do you think would be easier to watch and secure? No brainer, eh? Also, ocean is much harder to come by than land, so the two bodies of water on Mexico’s right and left side would be highly desirable obstacles.

Obviously the cameras, guards and patrol vehicles would need to be relocated to what is currently Mexico’s southern border. All Mexicans would immediately become U.S. citizens, but that is not a problem. Mexicans are generally hard-working, modest, and not trying to murder Americans. The current Mexican president would be more like a governor, and we could add Mexico as one state, or divide it into two or more.

With the increasing amount of money being spent on border security with Mexico for a almost worthless cause, it makes perfect sense to try and annex Mexico. The last time the U.S. annexed a new land was in 1898 (Hawaii, Guam etc) so it’s about time we added to the U.S. holdings.

Besides, Mexican food and drink is tasty.

You may laugh now.
