Mexican criminal leaders have witnessed U.S. government operations against al Qaeda and the pressure that the U.S. government can put on an organization that has been involved in an attack on the U.S. homeland. Mexican organized crime bosses are businessmen , and even if they were morally willing to work with terrorists — a questionable assumption — working with a terrorist group would be bad for business. It is quite doubtful that Mexican crime bosses would risk their multibillion-dollar smuggling empires for a one-time payment from a terrorist group. It is also doubtful that an ideologically driven militant group like a jihadist organization would trust a Mexican criminal organization with its weapons and personnel.
Immigration Surveillance Affirmative NAUDL 2015-16 DREAM Act Counterplan Answers DREAM Act does not solve immigration issues (__) The DREAM Act fails because it ties citizenship to higher education when many immigrants cannot afford to go to college Doyle, Elon University, 2013 [Jack Doyle, The Dream Act: A Flawed Patch for the Cracked and Pothole-Filled Road to Citizenship, excellence/contest/Contest% 20Entry%20Doyle %20Research%20Essay.xhtml] The DREAM Act favors the children of those who came to the United States for educational purposes by making education a requirement for citizenship – a requirement most likely to be met by those with higher GPAs and a greater motivation to pursue education. It provides no means by which employment or skill can gain an immigrant child citizenship. This bias leads to certain children having an easier path to citizenship than others, which might lead to some children not gaining citizenship and remaining illegal. As a result, the U.S. would lose valuable potential citizens and have to support more illegal immigrants than if the DREAM Act had no bias. If the United States wants to grant citizenship to those who are most willing to work hard, become skilled laborers, and be economic assets to the country, it needs to provide options for children of motivated immigrants who might focus on something other than education. While the DREAM Act provides motivation for immigrant children to get an education, it does nothing to remove the barriers preventing them from doing so or to alleviate the financial burden that immigrant children pose to the education system. A report by the Foundation of Child Development shows that 45% of undocumented immigrants fail to reach the status of a high school graduate, and only 19% ever acquire a college degree (Capps 2004). This data can make one think that illegal immigrants just do not put the same effort into schooling that Americans do, because many venues exist through which all people in the U.S. can get an education.
