EDITORIAL:         The U.S. Border “Crisis” Is A Political Scam

                                                The U.S. Congress has provided the laws and the spending that shape events at the border; U.S. presidents use those for political purposes, including propaganda. Congressfolk have parochial, personal and national interests to compromise, enough of which won’t bear too much publicity near elections. And some political realities don’t look nice in public. Some facts apply: The U.S. is probably the most desired migration destination on earth but is no longer an underpopulated opportunity needing migrants to develop it. The once overpaid American middle class is diminishing under competition from automation and cheaper foreign labor but no politician can afford to say that. Nor add that technological progress has eliminated old jobs faster than it has created new ones, plus that many of the new ones require education and experience unavailable to many American workers not yet old enough to retire. In all this, oth Democrats and republicans find political and economic benefits in massive immigration, legal and otherwise. It just insn’t politic to say so.
