Proceso Tegucigalpa, Honduras 3/13/2014

From the “Migrantes” section of the newspaper:
It reports that 1,582 “undocumented” aliens, including 252 minors (113 of which were traveling alone), were found by Mexican officials between March 7 and 12 in 20 states of Mexico. Of the total, 662 were from Honduras, 581 from Guatemala and 295 from El Salvador. All were aiming to reach the United States without proper documentation.

La Prensa San Pedro Sula, Honduras 3/10/14

Though it represents a 10% decrease in comparison with 2013, Mexican officials deported 10,771 Hondurans, Guatemalans, Salvadorans and Nicaraguans during the first two months of 2014. The total of Central American deported from Mexico in 2013 was given as 77,756. According to official estimates some 140,000 aliens, mostly Central Americans, enter Mexico illegally each year in an attempt to reach the United States in search of a better life. Some of them pay smugglers known as “polleros” (chicken herders) or coyotes to guide them via a clandestine route and many are victims of theft, extortion, rape, prostitution, kidnapping and murder by organized crime groups, as well as abuses from the officials.

Forty three more border crosser “wannabees” were rescued from a house in the city of Reynosa, state of Tamaulipas, Mexico. where they were being held for ransom by area criminals. This time the group included 23 Mexicans, 8 Salvadorans, 5 Guatemalans and 7 Hondurans. This is a quite common event in that area, located just a stone’s throw from the Rio Grande River in South Texas. The report adds that according to official estimates some 140,000 aliens, mostly Central Americans, enter Mexico each year in an attempt to reach the United States in search of a better life.

At the Vatican in Rome Guatemala’s chancellor Fernando Carrera (equiv. to Sec. of State) met with archbishop Mamberti, the “secretary for Relations with the States of the Holy See,” and brought forward the need for the Pope to pay more attention to the immigrants’ problems in the United States.
The archbishop acknowledged the request and commented that without a doubt the issue of immigrants would be included as something relevant at the time the Pope may visit the U.S.

La Hora Guatemala City, Guatemala 3/7/14

Immigration reform, a libertarian vision

The increase of the deportation rhythm in the last years worries or ought to worry all Guatemalans and Latin Americans. Aside from the important human and family aspect which is impacted in almost every case by the deportation, there exists the patrimonial detriment of the deportees due to the sudden interruption of their work income and the large impact this implies for the country of origin due to the resulting decrease of the individual monetary remittances which are so useful and invigorate the local economy.
Much has been said in the last three American administrations, Republican and Democrat, about finding an integral solution to the immigration problem, but the ideas and proposals that the traditional parties of the north have had in that regard have always been affected by the political problem that the road to citizenship implies. Many politicians consider that granting a road to citizenship for the illegal immigrants would imply a hard load for the benefactor State and that the new voters would do so for the Democratic Party. Further, they argue that the “new citizens” take away job opportunities from the Americans or that passing a reform of this type would only attract more immigrants into crossing the border illegally. Those are the true obstacles of immigration reform, and these obstacles will only disappear or lessen when the American politicians have a better vision of the solution to the problem and dedicate themselves to attack the problem by its root and not by the branches.

Mr. Ed Krayewski, associate editor of reason.com, proposes an interesting alternative from a libertarian point of view. Ed points out that the illegals’ problem in the United States would be easily resolved if immigration reform focuses on quickly resolving the difficulties that the illegals face in order to work and live in the country. What the reform ought to grant is a legalization, not a permanent residence or citizenship, that would allow the emigrants to obtain legitimate identification documents, take part in contracts, pay taxes formally and in general be able to participate in the economy and society. Government, says Ed, ought not to interfere between someone who wants to work and someone who wants to pay for a job. To eliminate the political problem, the legalization permit could not include the right to vote which would end the struggle between Democrats and Republicans for that political market.

Ed’s proposal also speaks about border security and indicates that the best border security policy has elements similar to the legalization of the production and distribution of drugs. Eliminating the prohibition of entering into the United States legally to work and facilitating the flow of workers would have as a result the disappearance of the current incentive of the “coyotes” and the entry of emigrants without identification. If doing it were legal, easy and cheap, it would not make sense to do it illegally. It would then be the market and not the government who’d be in charge of rating the efficiency and productivity of the emigrant worker.

Granting an easy and rapid route to legalization for the emigrants in the United States would certainly increase fiscal revenues and would generate more dynamics besides dealing with the family and personal aspect of those admirable fellow citizens with frank humanity. The libertarian vision of the immigration problem could be the key that may resolve this complicated matter.
