The Real Story: Open Borders, Big Profits
Updated November 26
, 2007
 
In the last chapter of my new book "An Inconvenient Book" I basically make the case that special interest groups and big business are now in control of our immigration policy. I've been called crazy for believing that -- some even say it's nothing but a conspiracy theory -- but the Real Story is that I can now offer you an iron-clad, concrete example of exactly how the whole cycle works.



Consider Western Union, the place where you used to go when you desperately needed your parents to wire you some cash. Well, believe it or not, a major portion of their billion dollar business is dependent on illegal immigration -- or, as they put it, "global migration." One study says that at least 40 percent of the Latin Americans who use money transfer companies like Western Union are illegal immigrants -- and these companies know it and they are exploiting it. Back in 1999, Western Union actually sponsored a lunch for detained illegal immigrants. They gave them t-shirts and bandanas and fliers, all with their 800 number on it. In fact, the second an illegal alien walks out of a detention facility these days, they're likely going to receive a marketing pitch from Western Union.

Since any new laws, or, heaven forbid, fences would hurt their business, Western Union has taken up quite an interest in politics. They've donated thousands to groups that support open borders and pathways to citizenship and they oppose politicians who get in their way.
