Iran To Impose U.S. Immigration Plan

Well, why not?

Immigration is an issue on which the U.S. seems incapable of reaching a political consensus, instability on the Mexican border has led to hundreds of deaths and cross-border drug trafficking, and neither the U.S. nor Mexico seems willing to solve the problem.

A solution imposed by a foreign nation may be just what is needed.

After all, when it comes to intractable disputes between Israelis and Palestinians, Obama appears headed towards an imposed solution in order to deal with the Iran nuclear problem:

Despite recent turbulence in U.S. relations with Israel, President Obama is "seriously considering" proposing an American peace plan to resolve the Palestinian conflict, according to two top administration officials.

"Everyone knows the basic outlines of a peace deal," said one of the senior officials, citing the agreement that was nearly reached at Camp David in 2000 and in subsequent negotiations. He said that an American plan, if launched, would build upon past progress on such issues as borders, the "right of return" for Palestinian refugees and the status of Jerusalem. The second senior official said that "90 percent of the map would look the same" as what has been agreed in previous bargaining.

Imposing border changes and population shifts on the Israelis in order to help resolve the Iranian nuclear program is absurd, as Jennifer Rubin points out:
The Obami can’t come up with an effective Iran approach. And now they want to add to their overwhelmed and underperforming foreign-policy apparatus by imposing a Middle East plan? It is apparent that the latter is an excuse and diversion from doing anything about the former. It is also very dangerous.
Iran never will recognize a U.S. imposed solution, and such an imposition would simply be a new ground for hating the U.S. and Israel. And bringing Iran into the equation perpetuates the myth that the Israeli-Palestinian dispute is what motives the Iranians.

Getting back to immigration, if we really want to please the Iranians, forget the Israeli-Palestinian dispute.

Why don't we let the Iranians impose a solution to our immigration disputes. It makes as much sense as letting the Iranians drive our policy on Israel. Once you head down the road of appeasement, there is no reason to stop at our border.

  1. You know, i keep thinking this.

    Okay us tea partiers are sick and tired of constantly being called racists for mere policy disagreements, but let's face it, it ain't going to end any time soon. But that being said, let me make a plea to all the race hustlers of the nation: please use the race card against Iran.

    I mean just picture it. We could see Al Sharpton on TV saying, "the president of Iran doesn't respect Obama because he is black." Jessie Jackson would say, "I bet if Obama was white, Iran would be disarming itself right now." Then have the congressional black caucus visit tehran and claim they were called the n-word and spat upon. This time there is actual visual evidence, as James Cameron volunteers to digitally insert actual swastikas and spit into videotapes of the indicent using computer technology.

    See, you guys get to have your racial issue, and conservatives will probably even play along. and maybe that will put iran enough on the defensive to actually back down. its a win-win

    (and yes, that was very tongue-in-cheek.)

  2. If Mexico does arrest Obama, may I suggest sending Biden, Pelosi and Reed down to seek his release?
