M22- JUST MY OPINION

IT'LL RUIN THE ECONOMY
This is the constant cry for everyone against anything. Raise the wages .50 cents, "it'll ruin the economy". Federalization taking over a failed labor and immigration department, "it'll ruin the economy".
Federal labor laws replacing slave labor laws, "it'll ruin the economy".
Now here's how I see it.
First there is no viable economy to be ruined, they have already done a complete and thorough job with that already, and a 'darn good one' at that. So throw out that lame ass excuse I don't buy it, Do you?
The real reasons, as I see it, is that the governor is afraid of losing his power, his thumb over all the 'little' people. He will lose control in making little self serving deals with new investors. He will lose his kiss my ass or lose your job position, a feeling of grandiose, I guess. He will lose the secrecy he is allotted when he wants to bullshit about what he wants you to believe. Having federal agents hanging around who may see through all this greed of power might get in his way, tell on him, someone that can't be squashed or threatened.
The real reason is not the economy, but greed and power.
Simple as that, all in a nut shell.

You are absolutely, 100% correct. Bingo.

The governor may (or may not) think he has his thumb over the little people, but in the end they have their thumb over him, as he may well discover next Election Day.

The feds, on the other hand, want their thumb over all of us. That (and not anything about the economy) is why he is right to oppose them.

cactus: Your first part is right on...
You have got to realize the feds have no gain in hurting or stiffling anyone here. They just seen to offer a change from the status-quo. Something must change, give it a try, there is no better offer on the table...
Should it not work perfect there is always the options for changing, nothing gets forever locked in.
Only accepting and working with the feds will get you everywhere.
Imput will be much more helpful than a stubborn no, not, never attitude as the governor has...

I wish I could share your faith that nothing is forever locked in, but I don't. Once the federal government sinks its tentacles into something, they are never coming out. Lots of federal agencies have been created. How many have ever been abolished?

If, after five years or so of federalized immigration, we all conclude it isn't working, do you seriously believe they are just going to say OK, and hand control back to the CNMI? I cannot imagine that ever happening.

Handing control back may not be the best option but a review and revamping of the system could be.
