2010 immigration reform

John McCain, someone who actually wants immigration reform to pass, has become the latest to say that reform will not happen in 2010.  Meanwhile, Barack Obama has not mentioned it in a while.

Obama has been given a pass thus far by reform advocates.  I am not sure how long that will last.  Regardless, a big question is whether they can effectively mobilize to put pressure on the administration to address immigration.  Many people support both immigration and health care reform, so may well be wary of criticizing him for the former while he is still trying to pass the latter.

Supreme Court Decision, Farming in America and Immigration

According to the last U. S. Supreme Court Decision, Corporations are freer to spend money on Politicians, and can give money freely to all type of politics.

My predictions :

If American Corporations can elect more Congressmen, then I can safely forecast these two developments :

1) There will be in the Future a better Atmosphere in Congress for Free Trade Agreements, because these Big Corporations like Microsoft, ATT, IBM, Hewlett Packard, Caterpillar, Johnson and Johnson, Kimberley Clark, General Electric, General Foods, etc .... can export more products.

2) Corporations will oppose Big Progroms to expulse Immigrants ( Legal or Illegal ). Am I wrong ???? ..... Many people will say that I am wrong, but Business is Business.

Specially in Agricultural Fields, many American Businesses rely on Foreign Born People, and this has become an entrenched hard to kill custom. Some businesses will feel threatened of Death if their Work Force is expulsed. And remember that this Workforce could return to the original countries and their produce can be exported to the USA as Third World Exports.

And American Capital from entrepreneurs may also migrate South of the Border. American Agricultural Businesses can migrate South, where they have already "Free Trade Agreements". So Americans can't stop Imports overnight, they would have to elect an anti-Trade Congress first.

People may not like what I wrote, but this is HARD ECONOMIC REALITIES.
